Organic Matter Removal "HIDROMAT" (Catalytic Wet Air Oxidation) (COD>40.000ppm)

What we offer:
HIDROMAT is a technology based on the elimination of recalcitrant organic compounds by a catalytic reaction, so that pollutants are transformed into harmless or reusable products, resulting in products with higher added value.
This technology is highly innovative and designed with the objective to be implemented on an industrial scale because it is a simple process that uses very mild operating conditions and does not require complex systems.

Technology based on a catalytic treatment system that allows the removal of organic matter in industrial effluents to levels higher than 99,9% by wet catalytic oxidation. It is a clean technology, and does not generate waste or by-products, with low power consumption and small space requirements compared to biological treatments.

The reaction takes place in a catalytic reactor in vapour phase, where the organic pollutants are transformed into carbon dioxide and distilled water following an exothermic reaction:


CnHm + O2 --> CO2 + H2O + Q

Process description; in a first step the polluted water is pre-heated and the vapour obtained is mixed with warm air and introduced to the reactor. The process does not need an extra addition of heat because it is autothermic. The outputs of the process are distilled water and carbon dioxide that is separated in gas phase.

Technology advantages:

-Simple:
oAtmospheric pressure
oOperation Temperature: 160-250 ºC.
oSmall space required
oReduced cost of installation

-Environmental friendly:
oClean technology, no wastes are generated
oAir is the reactant
oCatalyst durability > 2 years
oWater reuse

-Efficiency:
oConversion > 99%
oAll-purpose technology, accepts all kind of organic aqueous effluents, with different concentrations.
oLow energy consumes, autothermic process


Operation cost: 2 €/m3

What are we looking for:
Industries fom different sectors; chemical, petrochemical, animal feeding, pharmacy, etc, with
effluents with COD(40.000-500.000ppm) and no inorganic salts.

Nitrates/nitrites removal "HIDRONIT" (Selective Catalytic hydrogenation)

What we offer:
Innovative technology developed at the University of Tarragona (Spain) capable to remove nitrates and nitrites from water, getting drinking water (desired values of nitrates < 50 ppm)

Is a green process, no wastes are generated.
The nitrates removal consists in a catalytic reaction that converts nitrates and nitrites into Nitrogen gas in one step using hydrogen gas as reactant.
The reaction occurs in a catalytic reactor provided by APLICAT that works in a continuous mode.
The products are Nitrogen gas and clean water.

The chemical formula of the catalyst designed by the researchers of the centre AMIC, Rovira i Virgili University, is the key of the process, therefore is protected and commercialized by APLICAT.

The Selective Catalytic hydrogenation reaction is:

NO3-/NO2 + H2 --> N2 + H2O


Technology advantages:

-Simple:
oAtmospheric pressure
oRoom Temperature
oSmall space required
oReduced cost of installation

-Environmental friendly:
oClean technology, no wastes are generated
oHydrogen gas is the reactant
oCatalyst durability > 2 year

-Efficiency:
oConversion > 95%
oAll-purpose technology, accepts a wide range of nitrates concentration.
oLow energy consumes

Operation cost: 0,30 €/m3

Organic Matter Removal (Catalytic Advanced Oxidation) COD<40.000ppm

What we offer:
Catalytic Advanced Oxidation technology removes the organic matter at atmospheric pressure getting clean and reusable water.
It is a simple process that uses very mild operating conditions and does not require complex systems.
It is a clean technology, and does not generate waste or by-products, with low power consumption and small space requirements compared to biological treatments.

The organic pollutants are oxidized to CO2 gas obtaining conversion values around 99%.

The reaction takes place in liquid phase in a catalytic reactor, where the polluted water and Hydrogen peroxide or ozone reacts, obtaining clean water and CO2 as products.
The hydrogen peroxide is generated in situ in the reactor by the direct reaction between oxygen and hydrogen avoiding operator manipulation risks.

This technology works in continuous mode and it has been tested at pilot scale with some effluents of different areas/clients.

-Simple:
oAtmospheric pressure
oRoom Temperature
oSmall space required
