The chemical industry is one of the most important branches of industry. This industry means the production of raw materials and intermediate and finished products. This includes both organic and inorganic raw materials, as well as the production of plastics, glass, detergents/toiletries and fine/special chemicals such as pigments, paints/adhesives or crop protection products.
The petrochemical industry is responsible for the production of crude oil and natural gas. These preliminary products are required for the production of agricultural chemicals, cleaning agents or rubber/plastics.
In addition to production wastewater, there is also cooling or rainwater from roofs, roads, production areas, transshipment points or tank farms.
