The importance of sewage disposal
If you are working in the polymer industry or sewage and drainage water management. Or if you are a plastics pipe manufacturer, a constructor, or perhaps an end-user. Then you know that the management of water sewage and drainage is highly important, especially for urban societies. In many cases, the surplus of rainwater, process water or sewage water must be transported away from streets and buildings. Modern piping systems are increasingly made of thermoplastics, like polyethene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and PVC. For large diameter sewage and drainage pipes also glass reinforced plastics (GRP) are used.
