In wastewater treatment with organic polymer flocculants, it is usually only possible to “flocculate” the solid components out of the water. Industrial wastewater in particular often contains no solid contaminants at all.
COD in wastewater
In spite of this fact, such wastewater may contain sufficient solute organic components to have a considerable chemical oxygen demand (COD). This makes it unsuitable for discharge into the sewage system or otherwise involves high wastewater costs and fees.
Adsorption and flotation for COD reduction
SEPAR CHEMIE offers the following chemicals for the targeted treatment of such wastewater types, in both solid and liquid form:
- ADSORBENTS (POLY SEPAR® AM types)
- FLOTATION AGENTS (POLY SEPAR® CFL types)
- ACTIVE CHARCOALS (POLY SEPAR® AM types)
- PRECIPITANTS (POLY SEPAR® CFX-types)
Many of these products are combinations containing various inorganic and organic components. In a single treatment step they result in coagulation and adsorption of finely dispersed components in water, which can then be removed by means of sedimentation or flotation.
