NEW BORON REMOVAL FROM WASTE WATER BY ADSORPTION
In our technologies for anions removal by adsorption, we can also propose a new process for an easier and cheaper process with respect of traditional process (Flocculation, Reverse Osmosis and Ion exchange resins).
After the optimal result for sulphates removal from pickling wastewater, now we completed also a first trial for Boron removal from a very difficult wastewater coming from a collection of many different streams in a Industrial waste treatment platform.
- Inlet: 10 ppm
- Outelt: <0,5 ppm
- Contact time 15 min
We treated also with the same procedure, seawater like pre treatment for industrial use and we obtained the same high removal efficiency (from 4000 ppm to less than 2 ppm in the treaded water).
We think with this new process we can treat many types of waste water thanks to
- Selectivity for boron
- High removal efficiency of Boron – 99 %
- Boron concentration reachable in treated water until the limits for discharging down to 2 mg/lt
- No eluates to discharge and minimal volume of hazardous solid waste.
- Minimal installation costs
