How Ecover treats its waste water

Ecover has its own water treatment plant, which uses bacteria (in activated sludge) to break down the waste materials that enter the waste water during our production operations and so purifies it.

Around 8000 litres of water are treated and discharged daily using this process, producing around 40 kg of de-watered sludge. The quality of the discharged waste water is very high – comparable to the quality of the water in the streams and rivers of the surrounding area, and in many cases even better!

Ecover's water treatment plant achieves a treatment efficiency of better than 99%, very good result for a biological process. That is primarily due to the good degradability of the products used during the production process.
