Acid Regeneration Process

by Insheng Engineering Co., Ltd     based in Pingtung, TAIWAN

Acid Regeneration Process The commercially most relevant field of application for HCl regeneration processes is the recovery of HCl from waste pickle liquors from carbon steel pickling lines. Other applications include the production of metal oxides such as, but not limited, to Al2O3 and MgO as well as rare earth oxides by pyrohydrolysis of aqueous metal chloride or rare earth chloride solutions. A number of different process routes are available. The most widely used is based on pyrohydrolysis and adiabatic absorption of hydrogen chloride in water, a process invented in the 1960s. However tightening environmental standards and stringent air permit policies render it increasingly difficult to establish new pyrohydrolysis based acid regeneration plants.

Continuous emission monitoring for municipal waste incineration

by Enviro Technology Services plc     based in Stroud, UNITED KINGDOM

Local authorities incinerate domestic waste and other kinds of waste that typically include plastics, batteries and a diversity of unknown compounds.

Waste water respirometry solutions for toxicity reduction tests

by Strathkelvin Instruments Ltd.     based in Motherwell, UNITED KINGDOM

In industrial manufacturing companies, before a new process comes on-line, it is important to measure the toxicity of the effluent stream. This is especially the case for companies who treat their own waste. From the toxicity value (EC50) obtained, it may be a cost-effective solution to simply discharge the effluent to the treatment works at a slow and defined rate to minimise damage to the activated sludge. Following a period of acclimatisation it is often possible to increase feed rates to the plant and this can again be managed using the Strathtox Respirometer. An alternative approach is to undertake toxicity reduction procedures, such as neutralisation or acid hydrolysis, in pilot-scale laboratory studies. The Respiration or the Nitrification Inhibition Test may be used for this. In the future, toxicity reduction may be stipulated by local authority, water company or publicly-owned treatment works prior to giving discharge consents. Toxicity reduction may be evaluated using toxicity tests on activated sludge provided by the treatment works.

Dust collection and odor control in waste management sites

by F.G.M. engineering srl     based in Santa Croce sull`Arno, ITALY

Th turn key plant is composed by three different wet stages. The first stage is a venturi jet scrubber to collect dust and particles, then the second and third stages are deputed to absorb bad smells, such as H2S, Ammonia and Ammines. The absorption takes place thanks to the injection of chemicals (such as Sulphuric Acid, Sodium Hypochlorite and Sodium hydroxide.

Industrial Solution for gasification & synthetic gas

by Macrotek Inc.     based in Markham, ONTARIO (CANADA)

Gasification and synthetic gas production from various waste products are becoming increasingly important energy recovery technologies.

Plating rinse wastewater solution

by ENCON Evaporators     based in Hooksett, NEW HAMPSHIRE (USA)

Plating rinse wastewater is one of the most common applications for ENCON Wastewater Evaporators. Wastewater from plating rinse tends to be rather corrosive. The chemistries used in the plating process can include a wide range of acids such as nitric acid, chromic acid, hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, hydrofluoric acid, as well as other non-acid chemistries like ammonium bifluoride and nickel sulfamate. Typically, the waste stream has a transparent, relatively clean look because they are dilute and the contaminants are in solution.

Wastewater Treatment for the Chemical industry

by HydroThane STP BV     based in KC `s Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS

In addition to the food industry, biological anaerobic and aerobic technologies can be applied in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry as well.

Typical for the chemical and pharmaceutical waste water is the high organic pollution, which is often limited to only a few components that can be present in high concentration. Every production site has its own unique effluent composition.

This type of effluents require tailor-made solutions. The Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) process and the External Circulation Sludge Bed (ECSB) process from HydroThane are worldwide proven processes for the treatment of this type waste water.

Some chemical /pharmaceutical production processes where anaerobic technology has been applied are:
- Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA)
- Phenol
- DMT
- Penicillin
- Insulin.

Wastewater treatment solutions for anaerobic sludge digestion sector

by QM Environmental Services Ltd.     based in The Hague, NETHERLANDS

Anaerobic digestion is a series of processes in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen, used for industrial or domestic purposes to manage waste and/or to release energy. It is widely used as part of the process to treat wastewater, like Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) reactors. As part of an integrated waste management system, anaerobic digestion reduces the emission of landfill gas into the atmosphere. Anaerobic digestion is widely used as a renewable energy source because the process produces a methane and carbon dioxide rich biogas suitable for energy production, helping to replace fossil fuels. The nutrient-rich digestate which is also produced can be used as fertilizer. The digestion process begins with bacterial hydrolysis of the input materials in order to break down insoluble organic polymers such as carbohydrates and make them available for other bacteria. Acidogenic bacteria then convert the sugars and amino acids into carbon dioxide, hydrogen, ammonia, and organic acids. Acetogenic bacteria then convert these resulting organic acids into acetic acid, along with additional ammonia, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide. Finally, methanogens convert these products to methane and carbon dioxide.
