Concrete Wastewater & Slurry Recycling

Concrete wastewater is an alkaline (high pH) slurry that contains TSS, lime, and metals; along with trace amounts of oil & grease. Environmental regulations, drought and overhead costs are motivating concrete companies to rethink water management. One of the most economical methods is filtering and recycling concrete slurry water in-house.

The US EPA is enforcing a national storm water compliance program under the Clean Water Act. Concrete is one of three targeted industries with no indication of stopping. This initiative has recovered millions of dollars in penalties.

Conventional Do-It-Yourself settling ponds and weir systems are not always the best recycling methods. Color, specific gravity, dredging, and reclaiming issues are just some of the costly drawbacks.

ALAR offers a variety of mechanical and chemical systems that allows customers to make an educated decision.
