Automotive & metal industry - Case study
Automotive/Aeronautic/Metal industry (cars, trucks, planes, heavy machinery, components) faces increasing environmental requirements, especially on COD, metal removal and special molecules removal. Often residual metal levels, residual hydrocarbon or oil levels or surfactant content are a problem which traditional chemical or biological treatment plants cannot solve. Often a good and effective treatment plant can no longer comply with new requirements, coming either from authorities or even from internal goals and strategy. Most often, operating costs for existing plants are extremely high.
Introducing advanced oxidation systems to these operations is the key to solve these problems, either along with new treatment plants or just revamping/retrofitting existing ones. Very short paybacks on investment with these revamping are quite common. Many companies use very expensive final or tertiary treatment procedures, like activated carbon adsorption, to try to solve these problems, most of the times unsuccessfully at a very high cost.VentilAQUA’s
AOP solutions with electrocoagulation show the way to metal, oils and emulsion removal. No more huge chemical dosage, no more huge activated carbon adding, no more pH control up and down is required.
