A large amount of waste acid is produced in the production of titanium dioxide, a large amount of high-salt wastewater is generated in the post-treatment process, and some titanium dioxide is still lost after the CN filter. On the one hand, the titanium white industry suffers from increasingly strict Environmental constraints, on the other hand, waste acid, water, and titanium dioxide resources are huge. Therefore, titanium dioxide water treatment has received an increasing attention. JIUWU has developed a series of membrane treatment technologies for waste acid treatment, titanium dioxide recovery, and water reuse.
The membrane process is based on membrane separation technology. The salt and acid in the waste acid, the salt, and water in the waste brine are separated to achieve the acid and salt in the waste acid, and the salt and water in the brine can be reused. The removal rate of the metal salt in waste acid is over 98%, the recovery of titanium dioxide is 99.99%, and the water production index reaches the international first-class standard. The separation membrane is a cross-flow filtration method, which greatly reduces membrane fouling, delays the rate of membrane fouling, and improves ceramic membrane filtration efficiency.
Titanium dioxide production includes two production methods, sulfuric acid, and chlorination. For two different production methods, JIUWU has designed different membrane processes.
Product water quality: The SS is less than 1ppm, the turbidity is less than 0.5NTU, and the effluent water quality is stable;
Save land occupation: Membrane process replaces sedimentation tank, land occupation is much smaller;
Long work life: Acid and alkali resistant, high temperature resistant and high-pressure resistant, work life is longer than 5 years;
Easy operation: Short process, less control point, DCS control
High effectiveness: Short separation process, continuous operation, short wash cycle
Circular economy: Full recovery of titanium dioxide, product water recycle, chlorination method Titanium white process combined with caustic soda process form the environmental protection industry chain.
JIANGSU JIUWU HI-TECH CO. LTD.,founded in 1997, focus on producing ceramic membrane purification for many years. And JIUWU HI-TECH has become a leading company in the membrane separation industry. We sincerely invite and welcome people from all around the world to invest and create more values together.

From fermentation residues to nutrient concentrate
The growing number of bio-gas plants makes it in-creasingly difficult to return the fermentation residue substrates to green spaces or arable land. Especially large-scale plants are often unable to find sufficient disposal possibilities in acceptable distances. Therefore it is sensible to treat fermentation residue substrates by suitable screening processes in such a way that they can be discharged and re-used in the form of free flowing solids and nutrient-poor process service water. The main steps in the...

Clarifiers-No, Filtration-Yes: A Case Study
Problem Twenty miles southeast of Coos Bay, Oregon situated at the conjunction of the North and South Forks of the Coquille River lays the town of Myrtle Point. Just five years ago this community of 2670 residents was facing a large potable water problem with an even larger price tag. The town feeds its water treatment plant from the North Fork Coquille River. Prior to the 1990s the water treatment plant (WTP) could take water from the river with turbidities as high as 400 NTU and still provide clean safe water...
Recovery of Precious Metal Catalysts - A New Process Using Supercritical Water Oxidation
Up to now, the recovery of precious metals used as catalysts in chemical processes has involved the use of incineration. Now, however, a British-Swedish joint venture has developed a process which uses supercritical water oxidation instead, which provides many economic and environmental advantages. Precious metals are used extensively in catalysts in a wide range of industrial chemical processes. Sometimes they are used in a homogeneous form, but more often fixed to a solid support for ease of handling. In many...

Advanced Water Treatment Technologies May Bring Purified Water to San Diego
`In four years, half of San Diego may be filling its glasses with tap water that once ran through its toilets,` reported the San Diego Union-Tribune recently. A plan to mix `repurified water` with the City`s raw drinking water reservoir could become a reality, thanks to the wonders of water treatment technology. Such a possibility elicits various reactions including disgust, marvel and fear. Although the public generally trusts and admires modern technology, politicians and even scientists fear the grave repercuss...
Water Recovery from an Aluminum Can Manufacturing Process Using Spiral-Wound Membrane Elements
Abstract A waste treatment unit has been designed to recover water and various components from an aluminum can manufacturing process. Due to the scarcity of water in the Middle East and its inherent cost, water recovery is both necessary and cost effective. The manufacturing process generates: 1) an 11,356 L/hr (50 gpm) aqueous stream contaminated with hydrofluoric acid, dissolved aluminum, and various oil/surfactant complexes at a pH of <2 and 2) a 2,271 L/hr (10 gpm) aqueous stream with 3-10% emulsified...
Evaluation of Ecological Risks Associated with the use of Chlorine Dioxide for the Bleaching of ...
1.1 Scope and Objectives A small number of viable options are presently available for the bleaching of wood pulp (delignification and brightening) during the manufacture of pulp and paper. The use of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) in the bleaching process has largely superceded the earlier use of Cl2, or elemental chlorine, in the majority of North American pulp mills: It was discovered over a decade ago that the previous widespread use of Cl2 contributed to the production and subsequent release to the environment of...
OVERVIEW When chlorine is added to a water supply containing certain organics, the formation of halogenated organics occurs. Called `trihalogenated methanes` (THM`s) these reaction products are suspected carcinogens and maximum allowable limits in municipal supplies are imposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). To reduce the potential for the formation of THM`s, many U.S. municipal supplies are converting their chlorine (Cl2) disinfection method to chloramine addition. Chloramines have a low...

That the Swiss banks are also ahead of their competitors in the area of environmental protection is just one of the findings of an international Environmental-Rating survey published today by oekom research. With grades of C+ each, the two major Swiss banks UBS and Credit Suisse came in as the current environmental leaders in the European banking business....
Introduction: In this process, vacuum extraction is used to remove contaminants from soils. After condensation, contaminants are mixed with a semiconductor catalyst such (e.g., titanium dioxide), and fed through a reactor which is illuminated by sunlight. Ultraviolet light activates the catalyst, which results in the formation of reactive chemicals known as `radicals`. These radicals are powerful oxidizers that break down the contaminants into non-toxic by-products such as carbon dioxide and water. A big...
Elemental Chlorine-Free (ECF): Pollution Prevention for the Pulp and Paper Industry
Imagine being in charge of a chemical company. One day a fire breaks out, and an employee, designated as a first responder, is killed fighting the blaze. Then OSHA investigators discover that the man died primarily because both his training and his equipment were inadequate. This scenario is why CPL 2-2.59A should put anyone who runs a HAZMAT facility into a state of introspection. These employers need to ask themselves: `When was the last time that our Emergency Response Plan was brought up to date? Do our...

Abstract Africa The economic and social needs of Africa depends more on its environmental resources but these natural resources are seriously declining and that is really effecting the entire region. Sustainable development in this rapidly changing region has become an imperative, and must take place in the complex context of a diverse and changing ecosystem, political transition and evolution toward market economies. The region is heading towards integrating environmental components into sectors like...
Modification of the Hazardous Waste Program: Hazardous Waste Lamps. Final Rule - July 6, 1999
Today`s final rule adds hazardous waste lamps to the federal list of universal wastes regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Handlers of universal wastes are subject to less stringent standards for storing, transporting, and collecting these wastes. The Agency has concluded that regulating spent hazardous waste lamps as a universal waste under 40 CFR Part 273 will lead to better management of these lamps and will facilitate compliance with hazardous waste requirements. Today`s final...
Cart-Based Organics Collection. Citizens Drive 65 Percent Diversion System
For better or worse, citizens opposing waste management projects usually end up being labeled as NIMBYs — not in my backyard. This could have been the case in Halifax, Nova Scotia but instead, the citizens took their opposition one step further, basically taking the design for an acceptable waste management system into their own hands. In the process, they laid out the foundation for an integrated strategy for the four municipalities that now make up the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) that was adopted and...
Enlibra: a new Shared Doctrine for Environmental Management
Background During the first half of the 1970s, the nation enacted strong statutes to protect air and water, regulate waste, ensure the safety of drinking water, and protect endangered species. Several years later, the Superfund statute was enacted to speed the cleanup of hazardous waste sites. In each case, a federal program was developed to address immediate and widespread threats to the nation’s natural resources. The nature of pollution problems in that era seemed to justify the passage of strong, command-and-c...
Selective Separation and Recovery of Heavy Metals from Waste Water and Process Solutions
Abstract Polyorganosiloxane beads and water-soluble polymers have been modified with N-Acylthiourea groups to provide new chelating ion-exchange materials with a distinct selectivity to toxic heavy metal ions. The polysiloxane beads were synthesized in a particular sol-gel process to yield porous monodisperse spheres (Ø~1mm) with a high chemical and mechanical stability. The beads can remove CoII, NiII, CuII, ZnII, CdII, HgII and PbII effectively from aqueous solutions even containing complexing agents or high...
Water Quality Models
` In order to determine the impacts of a particular discharge on ambient water quality, it is usually necessary to model the diffusion and dispersion of the discharge in the relevant water body. The approach applies both to new discharges and to upgrading of existing sources. This note provides guidance on models that may be applicable in the context of typical Bank projects.` Introduction Mathematical models can be used to predict changes in ambient water quality due to changes in discharges of wastewater. In...
Containment for Soil, Sediment, and Sludge
Containment treatments are often performed to prevent, or significantly reduce, the migration of contaminants in soils or ground water. Containment is necessary whenever contaminated materials are to be buried or left in place at a site. In general, containment is performed when extensive subsurface contamination at a site precludes excavation and removal of wastes because of potential hazards, unrealistic cost, or lack of adequate treatment technologies. Containment treatments offer quick installation times and...
Air Emissions/Off-Gas Treatment
A number of technologies have been widely applied for removal of VOCs from off-gas streams. However, the application of these technologies to off-gases from site remediation may be quite limited. Biofiltration has been widely applied for VOC destruction in Europe and Japan, but it has only recently been used in the United States. Catalytic and thermal oxidation are widely used for the destruction of gas-phase VOCs in U.S. industry, yet have only limited applications to site remediation of off-gases. Vapor phase...
Common Treatment Technologies for Explosives in Ground Water, Surface Water, and Leachate
Explosives-contaminated process waste waters can be subdivided into two categories: red water, which comes strictly from the manufacture of TNT, and pink water, which includes any washwater associated with load, assemble, and pack (LAP) operations or with the demilitarization of munitions involving contact with finished explosive. Despite their names, red and pink water cannot be identified by color. Both are clear when they emerge from their respective processes and subsequently turn pink, light red, dark red,...
A Citizen`s Guide to Chemical Dehalogenation
What is chemical dehalogenation? Chemical dehalogenation is a chemical process to remove halogens (usually chlorine) from a chemical contaminant, rendering it less hazardous. Halogens are a class of chemical elements that include chlorine, bromine, iodine, and fluorine. Polychlorinated biphenyls are halogenated compounds that once were used in high voltage electrical transformers because they conducted heat well while being fire resistant and good electrical insulators. In addition, halogenated compounds are used...
RO Feedwater: Treat It Right
Summary Crossflow membrane filtration systems, such as reverse osmosis (RO), nanofiltration (NF) or ultrafiltration (UF), are good alternatives to traditional filtration and chemical treatment. However, to get the best performance from them, careful attention must be paid to feedwater conditions. Pretreating feedwater can lengthen the life of membrane elements, improve the quality of the water produced and reduce the amount of maintenance and cleaning a system requires. The importance of feedwater conditions...
Two-pass Combined Membrane Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment
There are several options in designing two-pass reverse osmosis systems, using the predominant membranes currently on the market: PA (polyamide) or CA (cellulose triacetate) membranes. Combining cellulose triacetate and polyamide membranes in the first and second passes, respectively, is just one approach that offers some interesting advantages, but it may not necessarily be suitable for all applications of two-pass reverse osmosis. Using polyamide in both passes (PA/PA) provides a higher final product water and...
Application of Membrane Technology for the Recovery and Reuse of Water
Abstract As water and sewer costs are expected to increase over the next decade, membrane technology will continue to be a viable and economical option in the recovery and reuse of water. This paper describes the mechanism of membrane effected separation (specifically reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration and microfiltration), membranes commercially available, membrane element configurations, and how complete membrane systems are designed. The paper also discusses case histories of a variety of proven applications,...
Membranes, the Finest Filtration
Introduction The notion that salt could be removed from seawater without a phase change took hold of Dr. Sourirajan`s imagination in the late 1950`s. The actual invention of the reverse osmosis (RO) membrane took place in his laboratory at UCLA around 1960. (Thus Sourirajan could be called not only the `Father of Reverse Osmosis,` but the initiator of all crossflow membrane technology.) The full commercialization of RO and its sister crossflow technology, ultrafiltration (UF), occurred in the early 1970`s. About...
Wastewater Recovery Using Reverse Osmosis
INTRODUCTION If one were to select a single word describing the most important factor when applying membrane technology to a wastewater application, it would be chemistry. That is not to say that other factors are not important; certainly fluid dynamics and other physical science factors play a major role as well. But it is the chemistry that is so important to success. And it is the chemistry that is so often overlooked. All too often reverse osmosis, or any membrane system for that matter, is considered the...
