Solar Wastewater Treatment


The Solar industry’s wastewater contains high levels of chemical oxygen demand (COD), total suspended solids (TSS), heavy metals, highly toxic chemicals (fluoride and ammonia) and pathogens, which harm the environment and human health. But conventional wastewater treatments are energy and resource-intensive for the industry’s unique wastewater.

BW Water accepted the challenge of creating a sustainable solution to separate and recycle valuable heavy metal materials from production waste streams. Our industrial wastewater treatment system can be tailored to Hydrofluoric (HF) acid wastewater treatment to keep solar manufacturers compliant with discharge limits worldwide.

Solar industry manufacturers are typically required to treat

  • Source water for general use
  • Demineralised water for production use
  • Industrial wastewater treatment
  • Hydrofluoric acid treatment
  • Ammonia treatment
