Purification of industrial waste water
At RGS Nordic our work involves cleaning and recycling natural resources. Since 1989 we have purified over 5,000,000 tonnes of waste water – including for the offshore industry.
We receive water from all industries, and we treat:
- water that must not be passed into the sewers because of danger of explosion, danger to health or unpleasant odour;
- waste water containing heavy metals
- used alkalis and waste water containing carbon
- waste water requiring active sludge treatment;
- waste water containing substances that adsorb to sludge;
25 years’ experience of purifying industrial waste water
Biological water purification is considered the most environmentally friendly form of purification, and we have 25 years’ operational experience in this area. We check the waste water in our operations laboratory before, during and after treatment. When the water has been purified it is passed back into the natural cycles. Biological sludge is created as an excess product, and is used for energy production.
We have purified over
tonnes of waste water
We use the best technology available
RGS Nordic has quality and environmental certification in accordance with ISO 9001, ISO 14.001 and Achilles JQS, and is verified under the EMAS regulation. Our purification plants at all times meet the current requirements regarding best available technology (BAT). Read more in our latest environmental statement.

The biological purification process
The biological process used in our waste-water plant is shown below. The purification process creates sludge for recycling and purified waste water, which is returned to the cycle in Agersø Sund.
