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.
oOperation Temperature: 160-250 ºC.
oSmall space required
oReduced cost of installation
oClean technology, no wastes are generated
oAir is the reactant
oCatalyst durability > 2 years
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.
