What are the effects of too much salt in industrial sewage

Release Date:




The excessive salt in industrial wastewater has a far-reaching and complex impact, which not only threatens environmental safety, but also has a serious negative impact on ecology, health and economic development.

First of all, from the environmental point of view, high-salt sewage will destroy the ecological balance of the water body. When these sewage is discharged into rivers, lakes and other natural water bodies, the high concentration of salt will lead to the imbalance of salt concentration in the water body, and then affect the survival and reproduction of aquatic organisms. In addition, salt will also react with other substances in the water body to produce toxic and harmful substances, causing further pollution to the water quality. This pollution not only affects the beauty of the water body, but also leads to the loss of water body functions, such as the reduction of drinking water sources and the damage of fishery resources.

Secondly, the effect of high salt sewage on soil quality can not be ignored. In agricultural irrigation, if sewage containing high salt is used, the salt content of the soil will increase. High salinity can cause structural damage to the soil, making the soil compact and dry, which in turn reduces soil fertility and permeability. This not only affects the normal growth of crops, but also may lead to crop reduction and even death. In addition, high salinity will also react with other elements in the soil, affecting the balance of nutrients in the soil and further aggravating soil degradation.

Moreover, there is a potential threat to human health. The salt and harmful substances in these sewage may enter the human body through the food chain, drinking water and other ways, causing harm to human health. Drinking water with high salt content for a long time may lead to chronic diseases such as high blood pressure and heart disease. In addition, water with too much salt may also cause irritation and damage to the skin, increasing the risk of skin diseases.

Finally, from an economic point of view, high-salt sewage also brings a lot of pressure to industrial production. Excessive salt will corrode the production equipment, reduce the service life of the equipment, and increase the maintenance cost of the enterprise. At the same time, due to improper sewage treatment, enterprises may also face fines and penalties from the environmental protection department, which will bring economic losses to enterprises. In addition, environmental pollution will also affect the social image and reputation of enterprises, and then affect the market competitiveness and sustainable development of enterprises.

To sum up, the excessive salt in industrial sewage will not only cause serious negative effects on the environment, ecology and health, but also bring economic pressure to enterprises. Therefore, we need to take effective measures to deal with the problem of high salt in industrial sewage, such as the use of advanced technology such as high pollution resistance RO reverse osmosis membrane for in-depth treatment, reduce salt content, protect the environment and human health. At the same time, strengthening the supervision and management of industrial sewage treatment to ensure that enterprises carry out sewage treatment and discharge in accordance with regulations is also the key to solving this problem.
