Cyanide Treatment with Hydrogen Peroxide

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

Cyanides are used in a number of chemical synthesis and metallurgical processes (as simple salts or cyanide complexes). As a class, cyanides are highly toxic and must be destroyed or removed from wastewaters prior to discharge. The most common method for treating free or simple cyanide is alkaline chlorination. However, chlorination of cyanide results in highly toxic intermediates (e.g., cyanogen chloride) and, if organic material is present, chlorinated VOC’s. These compounds, together with the residual chlorine, create additional environmental problems. Consequently, there is a growing need for alternative, non-chlorine methods for destroying cyanides. Peroxygen compounds such as hydrogen peroxide, peroxymonosulfuric acid (1), and persulfates (1) are effective alternatives to alkaline chlorination for destroying free and complexed cyanides. The choice of peroxygen system depends on the reaction time available, the desired products (cyanate, or CO2 and NH3), the types of cyanides being treated (free, weak acid dissociable, or inert), and the system economics. Treatment with Hydrogen Peroxide While hydrogen peroxide will oxidize free cyanide, it is common to catalyze the reaction with a transition metal such as soluble copper, vanadium, tungsten or silver in concentrations of 5 to 50 mg/L (2).

Metal Stabilization

by Graus Chemicals, LLC     based in Glendale, ARIZONA (USA)

In-situ geochemical fixation using a chemical reductant such as Remotox (calcium polysulfide) converts the soluble toxic metals into insoluble non-toxic compounds. Remotox has proven to be effective under a wide range of conditions. It is considered more stable and persistent than other reductants in subsurface environments, and is relatively safe to handle in the field and easy to apply.

Mold Control

by AgriAir Equipment     based in Mukilteo, WASHINGTON (USA)

Controlling mold spores and bio-contaminants is a challenge for indoor gardeners that requires attention to detail and specialized equipment. An average cubic foot of air has around 100,000 mold spores. When sufficient moisture is available, mold grows. AgriAir Purifiers control and eliminate Aspergillus and many other types of spores, mildew, odors, and VOC as well as sanitize the air and hard surfaces from biological contaminants generated by organic decay during the entire growing process. AgriAir Purifiers generate ionized-hydro-peroxides, which result in a proactive method of indoor air sanitation and promote organic garden production. This purification method eliminates the need for the use of additional chemicals or biocides that generally contain toxic compounds. AgriAir products can safely be used in occupied spaces throughout the entire grow cycle all while effectively destroying mold spores and other harmful bio-contaminants.

Painting & Coating

by DiversiTech     based in Montreal, QUEBEC (CANADA)

Paint fumes are Unbreathable. Spray Painting VOCs and Powder Coating dust are both harmful pollutants which are produced during painting operations. The volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from paint can cause respiratory issues and require proper ventilation to remove harmful gasses from the work area. Powder Coating lines and spray painting produce dangerous fumes and dusts which need to be filtered or exhausted outside your facility. Industrial coatings and chemicals can produce toxic VOCs and foul odors which can effect worker`s health and reduce productivity. Some of the most common coatings are polymers which include polyurethane, epoxy and moisture-cure urethane. Many different industries required the use of glues, adhesives, solvents and different chemical agents in their production process, but are unsure of the best way to handle this nuisance. Exhausting fumes outside may be an option when VOCs are extremely dangerous and odorous but companies must also comply with EPA guidelines which regulate which gases can be emitted. In cold climates and in air-conditioned facilities, capturing, filtering and recirculating fumes can provide huge energy savings preventing costly heat loss and energy intensive air makeup systems. Utilizing activated carbon granules can allow operators to filter VOCs and odors from painting and cutting applications. Different quantities and types of carbon modules are required depending upon the contaminant.
