Metals in waste streams don't naturally degrade and are toxic to aquatic life, even at low concentrations.

Metals that can be removed include soluble and/or particulate heavy metals, such as lead, copper, chromium, iron, manganese, mercury, nickel and zinc.
New water regulations were passed to protect the San Francisco Bay. See how United reduced nickel in its waste streams and used foam control solutions to meet these requirements.Read the story
