English to Italian translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Environment & Ecology / Water pollution
English term or phrase:point of generation
I'm translating a document on water pollution. This is the context:"Three options are available in controlling industrial wastewater. Control can take place at THE POINT OF GENERATION in the plant; wastewater can be pretreated for discharge to municipal treatment sources; or wastewater can be treated completely at the plant and either reused or discharged directly into receiving waters".
What does "the point of generation" stand for? Thank you very much
Tra l'altro nel secondo si dice proprio "sagome degli edifici costituenti l’insediamento con indicazione delle relative destinazioni d’uso e dei punti interni all’edificio di prima formazione delle acque reflue". Lo stesso documento è in uso in molti comuni italiani (cercare su google per credere).
