What We Do
Biochemica’s key service areas include Legionella control, monitoring and management services, wastewater treatment, boiler water treatment, cooling water treatment and chemical supply. Our Ecochemica arm is dedicated to providing environmentally-friendly services, technologies and chemical products. All of our services are fully supported with engineering and equipment solutions. Contact us to find out more on how we can support your water process.
We approach the area of water and wastewater management in a similar manner to that which a food company might approach food safety regulations or a pharmaceutical company approaches FDA regulations. We listen to our clients’ requirements and respond by designing operational programmes to optimise system performance in the areas of reliability, economic operation, compliance to legislation and where possible, throughput, volume reduction, recovery/recycle, whilst at all times considering cost. This is often behind the scenes, but plays a critical role in ensuring that we provide each of our customers with the most efficient and professional service possible.
Furthermore, given the nature of the chemical supply operation of our business, we approach this with great care. We achieve excellence through stringent quality and environmental management systems and health and safety processes.
This is the foundation of our unique Total Water Management approach. Our ability to provide this high level of service on a consistent basis is the cornerstone on which our success to date has been built.
