The context all points to some sort of effluent treatment process or department, though I cannot tell if they have their own station d'épuration. I've put this meaning in the glossary anyway. Thanks Eric and agoreux for your help.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Karen Tkaczyk: Sounds like the right context.
3 hrs
  -> thanks

neutral  Gabrielle Leyden: STEP = water treatment plant in France, too, but "STEP conc." sounds like something else (solution? elution phase?)
11 hrs

agree  Andrée Goreux: Looks like they are trying out methods to eliminate/recover fluids from the process. So service de traitement et d'élimination des produits would fit. Maybe they tell you what they will do next with the recovered/eliminated products.
