Waste water and gas treatment

Gas and water purification

MagTreat®is a highly efficient cutting-edge reagent for treatment of water and gases based on natural magnesium hydroxide.It can be effectively used in industrial and municipal wastewater treatment. It can be applied on each stage of sewages purification, improving the perfomance of a whole process. MagTreatcan be delivered either in powder or in aqueous suspension form.

In water treatment
  • most cost effective alkali compared to other commonly used alkali’s - caustic soda and hydrated lime
  • can be used both in static and in dynamic conditions
  • effective neutralization of acids such as sulfuric, hydrochloric, phosphoric, nitric and acetic acids
  • easy to store, handle and use
  • reduces odors, corrosion and FOG (Fats, Oils, and Grease)
  • improves nitrification, biosolids processing and flocculation
  • highabsorption capacity is comparable to the absorption capacity of synthetic ion-exchange materials
  • non-hazardous material (to people and environment)
  • does not cause scaling

In gas treatment

  • effective reagent for removal of sulphur from flue gasses
  • highly efficient in the process of absorption (>98%)
  • low consumption of power
  • low maintenance costs
  • compactness of equipment
  • absence of formation of insoluble sediments which pollute the system
  • obtaining valuable by-products
  • absence of abrasive effect

Primary and secondary treatment

MagTreat® is a natural reagent for wastewater treatment. It can be effectively used in primary and secondary treatment processes. Acting like a soft alkali, MagTreat is safer and more effective than any of existing industrial alkalis. It can be applied on each stage of sewages purification, improving the perfomance of a whole process.

Odor control and sludge dewatering

Odor is a wide spread problem in waste water treatment facilities. It can affect an environment, operational personel and also can severely damage the eqipment. Thereby, the question of Odor Control araises sharply these days. MagTreat® can reduce odor formation not only on initial stages of water treatment process but at the same time on the final stage during biosolids processing. MagTreat reduces the costs of utilizing solid wastes via improvement of sludge dewatering.

Reagent for gases purification

The use of MagTreat® allows radically reduce the concentration of acidic and toxic gases. It results emission standards to match European Union standards.Application of MagTreat improves the efficiency of traditional gas treatment method by means of slaked lime (calcium-magnesium method).

Reagent for flue gases desulfurization

Desulfurization of flue gas using MagTreat® is the most effective method nowadays.

Sulphur dioxide (SO2) is mainly produced by burning fossil fuels. It is one of the most harmful pollutants which appear as the result of human activity. Sulfur dioxide affects human health, cause acid rain, both at the local and regional levels. It harms nature and environment.
