Whanganui Tannery Pulls Chrome Out of Wastewater

Whanganui, New Zealand (9/7/18) - Whanganui company Tasman Tanning plans to commission a plant to remove chrome from its wastewater going to the Whanganui wastewater treatment plant. The plant had received no pressure from the Whanganui District Council and  has instead taken this initiative with a vision for being more environmentally friendly. This action also improves the quality of the dried sludge produced at the treatment plant and opens the possibility of the plant producing a biosolids fertilizer rather than landfilling the material.
