Hazardous waste treatment solutions for chlorine industry

by econ industries GmbH     based in Starnberg, GERMANY

The mercury cell process is a formerly widely-used production technique for the production of chlorine and caustic soda. The liquid metal, mercury, acts as cathode (negative pole) in this process. In the past, the loss of mercury during the process (to air, soil and water) led to serious health and environmental problems. Therefore, most European chlorine producers have decided to phase out the mercury cell process by 2020. Nevertheless, even today, almost 6000 tons of mercury is used per year for chlorine production in Europe alone. As a result of this, yearly waste outputs contain around 1200 tons of mercury, which are stored on-site or sent off for disposal.

Hazardous and Special Wastes

by Advanced Plasma Power (APP)     based in Swindon, UNITED KINGDOM

Gasplasma® uses a DC Plasma Converter to crack impurities from the raw syngas. The intense heat and strong UV light produced by the Plasma Arc neutralises hazardous wastes, such as sludge and oils, creosote and other preservatives and chemicals. Gasplasma® transforms the organic parts of the waste into a hydrogen-rich syngas that is used to generate clean, renewable power and renewable heat. The second stage Plasma Converter makes hazardous elements inert and all the inorganic materials are vitrified into an environmentally benign product called Plasmarok®.

Industrial air pollution control for the chemical and petrochemical industry

by Chemisch Thermische Prozesstechnik GmbH / CTP Air Pollution Control     based in Graz, AUSTRIA

CTP systems can be found in every leading production company: thanks to the experience and the expertise developed in partnership with our customers for processes with inconsistent waste gas volumes; varying concentrations of organic components; gases contaminated with aerosols. CTP has installed systems for waste gas streams ranging from 1,000 to 200,000 Nm³/h. CTP supplies this industry with mainly catalytic systems, regenerative thermal oxidisers (RTO) and adsorbers. As the flue gases in this industry are often explosive mixtures, CTP systems have to be completed with special safety conduits and filters to help reduce hazards during continued operation.

TOC Correlation to BOD or COD

by GE Analytical Instruments     based in Boulder, COLORADO (USA)

Challenge: Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) are traditional parameters analyzed in the laboratory to determine organic matter in water and wastewater. Wastewater facility operators need to have constant data to monitor their discharges and optimize treatment processes (biological treatment, chemical dosing, etc). The requirements of BOD and COD analysis prevent them from being implemented as control parameters, however. The BOD five-day analysis time requirement does not allow an operator to use the data for process optimization and. although COD requires less time than the BOD, its analysis includes the use of hazardous chemicals and has no constant analysis capability.

Hazardous waste treatment solutions for site remediation

by econ industries GmbH     based in Starnberg, GERMANY

The contamination of soils as a result of prior chemical production can often be unpredictable and diverse. The majority of such pollutants will require an ex-situ treatment method. Many of our VacuDry units can be used for direct-feeding contaminated soils. To reduce the input amount for thermal treatment, the VacuDry units can also be used in combination with soil-washing plants: In this case, customers only feed the high polluted fractions and screened fines (e.g. below 10 mm), as well as the filter-cake from the soil washing process. However, we are able to handle soil contaminated with mercury, hydrocarbons, PAH, PCB, dioxins, furans, organic-lead compounds and many more. VacuDry plants for on-site ex-situ remediation projects are delivered in a modular design.

Integrated real-time gas analysis solution for chemical decontamination industry

by CIC Photonics, Inc.     based in Albuquerque, NEW MEXICO (USA)

The threat of terror in the form of chemical and biological warfare agents has been a reality globally since March 1995, when the Aum Shinrikyo sect killed 12 people and injured nearly 6,000 by releasing sarin nerve gas in the Tokyo subway system. More recently, the 2001 anthrax attacks in the USA was a wake-up call that the threat is real. Recent outbreaks of H1N1 and SARS posed threats of worldwide epidemics because air travel provides a means for these diseases to spread globally in less than 24 hours. A major concern of several US government agencies, such as the Department of Defense, Homeland Security, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is not only the detection of hazardous chemical and biological warfare agents (CBWA) or bacteria or viruses that pose an epidemic threat, but the timely decontamination of those agents to a level where they no longer pose a threat to human health and life. The solution requires a means to monitor the effectiveness of the decontaminating reactant or reactants to an endpoint that has been reliably shown to be more than 99% effective in rendering the targeted agents harmless under controlled conditions.

Gravity Main Sulfide Odor Control with Hydrogen Peroxide

by USP Technologies     based in Atlanta, GEORGIA (US) (USA)

Gravity main sewer systems include major trunk lines and the tributaries that feed them. Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) odor builds up in the collections system as the flows collect from upstream reaches and become larger, deeper and more septic (oxygen depleted) in the downstream reaches more near to the wastewater treatment plant. In general, most of the more significant hydrogen sulfide odor and corrosion control problems occur in the major trunk systems segments conveying flow to the plant. Therefore, selection of sulfide treatment for gravity systems has several options depending mainly on: Duration of control required Degree of septicity (oxygen depletion) Location of target control points or "hot spots" Location of available dosing points upstream of "hot spots" Availability of civil infrastructure and utilities Sensitivity to hazardous chemicals
