The processes involved in producing materials in a tannery are labour intensive and require a large amount of water and chemicals. With so much of that resulting in wastewater, any way in which tannery wastewater treatments can be employed will not only help minimise wastage but could also see bills come down if reliance on water is reduced.

Why choose Castle Water?

Castle Water can help any tannery in the UK when dealing with aspects involving wastewater in what would be considered a niche industry.

  • Trade effluent improvements.
  • Improved tariffs on general water usage.
  • Advice on reducing chemical discharge.

Are there chemicals which pose a threat to the water network?

Some of the chemicals commonly used in tanneries include chromium, tannins, oils, dyes and specific compounds depending on what the end-product needs to look like. It can be something of a balancing act to ensure a tannery is compliant with local regulation and that all necessary measures are in place to prevent accidental disposal of tannery effluent.

If this is something you’re having problems with, please get in touch to see how Castle Water can help.

Our tannery wastewater treatment services

Castle Water’s specialist partners are at hand to help tanneries discover which services can be most beneficial in getting operations optimised. Unlike other cleaning and processing techniques, tanneries need to be careful about how chemicals and effluents are handled.

Understanding how to be proactive and improve the use of water in operations can help with:

  • Pre-tanning & tanning.
  • How to deal with greywater when wet finishing.
  • How intensive processes like bleaching need to be.
  • How dyes are dealt with if they produce wastewater.
  • Methods to lower the amount of ammonia used.

There may also be the opportunity to highlight the means of reducing the use of high-strength chemicals with appropriate training.

Wastewater treatment and clothing

Much like the tanning process, many UK based clothing companies, especially those starting out, may underestimate the amount of water used in making clothes and what charges are incurred from wastewater.
