Electrocoagulation: Application and Benefits

Electrocoagulation is the distinct economical and environmental choice for meeting water treatment discharge standards and compliance requirements. Capital and operating costs are generally recovered by eliminating discharge fees and fines, harvesting resources, and significantly reducing water replacement costs.
