Wastewater solutions for the chemical industry

Challenges in the chemical industry

The chemical industry is often faced with serious challenges in treating wastewater effectively. Wastewater streams can contain a broad spectrum of organic compounds such as solvents, detergents, polymers, pesticides, or surfactants – to name just a few.

Such compounds often pose a real threat to human health and the environment. Many compounds cannot be destroyed using conventional treatment methods such as biological treatment, and disposal of wastewater by incineration is a significant operation cost.

Aquarden’s effective and clean solutions

Aquarden is a market-leading specialist in the development and delivery of environmentally friendly systems for treating toxic and organic wastewater streams.

We offer a wide range of systems and solutions depending on the composition of the particular waste stream. Systems include our patented and prize-winning Waterox solution.

Waterox completely destroys hardly-degradable and toxic substances in industrial waste streams – at competitive prices – leaving the treated water so clean that it can be discharged to receiving water body, or perhaps reused as process water. Another interesting feature is that it often generate more energy that it consumes, which may be reused. The method behind Waterox is called SCWO (SuperCritical Water Oxidation).

We work closely with our customers in all phases of wastewater challenge resolution. A solution from us may include initial laboratory scale performance tests on your wastewater, process design, manufacturing, installation, and support – all to ensure that you get the right application.

Contact us to hear more about Waterox and our other solutions for sustainable and cost-effective treatment of ‘problematic’ waste streams from the chemical industry.
