This service is provided mainly to businesses generating volumes of water contaminated with organic products (oil, latex, phenols, etc.) or inorganic products (acids, bases, heavy metals, etc.)
These can be from industrial processes or recovered from fires, spills in waterways, site restoration, infiltration in underground networks, etc. They are recovered using vacuum trucks or sent by trailer truck for drums or "tote tanks", either as part of a comprehensive management contract or an agreement limited exclusively to their treatment.

- Release of the treated water to the sewage system and shipping of the sludge to accredited sites for safe disposal.
- Cleaning, decantation of solids and coalescence of oil droplets.
