Benefits of the JETSKYTECH water treatment system to the chemical industry
Targeted treatment of wastewater to remove toxic, mutagenic, carcinogenic or non-biodegradable contaminants
A major asset in the plan to reuse water, reducing costs and improving CSR
Safe and low maintenance – with no chemical dosing and no secondary
Many large companies look to industrial water treatment chemical suppliers for their wastewater treatment solutions, without knowing that eco-friendly solutions now exist. Rather than using chemicals to treat water, options now exist which allow water to be treated using electrochemical oxidation with no chemical dosing.
Further challenges arise in the form of regulation for the reduction of clean water use, which encourages the implementation of process water recovery as part of your business as usual activities. Industry authorities and local utilities have stringent regulations for the level of chemical pollutants present in wastewater, discharged to either the environment or sewer for further treatment, and adhering to these regulations is vital for an organisation to avoid considerable fines.
Phenol Removal Case Study
The Problem A manufacturer of thermoset resins and specialty chemicals who supports customers in a diverse range of application and industries, approached JETSKYTECH to help them reduce phenol levels in their wastewater. The aim of the project was to demonstrate and evaluate the effectiveness of the JETSKYTECH-a system in the reduction of phenol levels from wastewater. Two samples of wastewater were processed for treatment – a chemical distillate and an effluent. Successful treatment of phenols would mean that there would be no need for collecting and transporting this wastewater off-site for incineration. Incineration is extremely expensive, damaging to the environment, and involves a huge amount of paperwork, which takes time that could be spent doing something more productive. Treatment was also required to protect the Biological Aerated Flooded Filters (BAFF) process employed on the client’s site, which had been inhibited by phenols. Due to the diverse nature of intermediates used in the manufacturing of chemicals, wastewater streams vary significantly in terms of composition. The intermediates are often toxic, mutagenic, carcinogenic or non-biodegradable and chemicals can be produced on a commercial scale from kilograms to multi-tonnes. This variation of wastewater composition and volume combined with strict effluent permits and extreme operating conditions present unique challenges for wastewater treatment
