French term or phrase: Lacunage + 3 others
1. recyclage, décantation, LAGUNAGE et lavage des gaz (treatment of liquid waste, possibly relevant is that the context is a textiles factory)
2. ...comme le décrotteur de betterave, ont favorisé la diminution de la charge polluante ET DU DÉBIT D’APPOINT: le système a atteint un taux de recyclage d’environ 94% (an additional bonus?)
3. L’usine a mis en place le rinçage en cascade à titre de test et ce à l’échelle D’UNE SEULE CHAÎNE DE LA FILIÈRE DE traitement des surfaces des pièces métalliques (surface treating of metals)
4. La MULTIPLICATION des rinçages morts (maximum deux rinçages morts) au niveau des bains de traitement de surface a permis ...(could this be ‘churning’ as the idea is savings in water consumption, and ‘multiplication’ doesn’t imply reduction?)

Doubts in Capitals and comments in brackets. I have investigated these without any luck. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks. Incredible the blind spots one sometimes has - I searched a variety of language dics, Sci and Tech dics and the Internet for 'lacunage'on the basis of guesswork but never thought of lagooning.

Explanation:
Hi.

Here are some ideas for...

LAGUNAGE – time spent in holding basins or time spent in holding pools

ET DU DÉBIT D’APPOINT – also reduced the flow rate or output (this reinforces the reduction in pollution production)

D’UNE SEULE CHAÎNE DE LA FILIÈRE DE – on one line operating in the metals surface treatment activity

MULTIPLICATION – Could this be «successive » rinses, meaning they reuse the rinse water thus reducing overall consumption?

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Deb
