Many materials in the chemical industry are toxic, mutagenic, carcinogenic or simply non biodegradable. Because of broad differences in the materials used, the chemicals industry waste streams can exhibit a considerable amount of variation in terms of volume, quality and composition. The high variability, effluent permits, and extreme operating conditions present unique challenges in terms of treatment, especially as regulations become more stringent in relation to the removal of specific contaminants.
In general the best strategy to clean highly contaminated and toxic industrial wastewater is to treat at source and sometimes by applying onsite treatment within the production lines when recycling treated effluent. Many plants in the chemicals manufacturing industry are turning to water efficiency initiatives aimed at recycling water from waste streams for reuse in plant processes to help mitigate water scarcity related risks. Extending the water reuse concept further, another important trend in the chemical industry is the increasing adoption of zero liquid discharge (ZLD).
Plants are replacing their traditional systems with integrated treatment technologies including Arvia’s Organic Destruction Cell (ODC) systems to treat, recycle, and reuse every drop of wastewater. The ODC combines the advantages of adsorption and oxidation within a single unit reducing footprint and CAPEX. It is designed to reduce recalcitrant Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and remove problem pollutants as well as colour.
