UN Sustainable Development Goals

GOAL 6: Clean Water and SanitationGOAL 7: Affordable and Clean Energy


Effluent is an outflowing of water or gas to a natural body of water, from a structure such as a wastewater treatment plant, sewer pipe, or industrial outfall. Effluent, in engineering, is the stream exiting a chemical reactor.
