Pressure on industrial facilities to meet strict trade effluent standards is mounting, as increasing environmental scrutiny of water companies filters down to their commercial clients. Breaching consent conditions can result in fines, prosecution or the site being shut down. There are also major reputational risks to not fulfilling environmental obligations.

Bringing your site into compliance with wastewater treatment contract hire will give you time to build a case for capital funds.
