Wastewater treatment has become very important nowadays, and activated carbon is used for the consumption for the absorption of toxic substances and pollutants that are not easily bio-degradable, with the removal of micropollutants, COD and AOX (Absorbable Organic Halogens) colour and odor gaining steadily in importance. Ceycarb offers a wide range of products both in powder and granular forms for wastewater treatment applications such as the PACT process, physio-chemical water treatment processes, etc. These products are widely used in the petroleum, textile, sugar, and paper industries.
Drinking Water Production
In the process of drinking water production, numbers of hazardous compounds have to be removed. This process is becoming complicated day by day due to environment pollution all over the world.
Ceycarb offers wide range of powdered activated carbon (PAC) and granular activated carbon (GAC) for removing of hydrocarbons, pesticides including by products, colours, taste and odours, detergents, and for dechlorination and deozonation.
Process Water Treatment
For industries such as beverages and certain food processing, water is an essential raw material which is needed to be purified with intensive care. In other uses of water for process applications like boiler feed water treatment and condensate and contact water treatment applications, water has to be treated.
Ceycarb offers different grades including water washed, acid washed carbon with low silica content and low iron content.
Boiler Feed water Treatment
Properly treated water has to be fed to the boilers in order to prevent problems such as:
1. VOC carry over to the steam
2. Over consumption of boiler water treatment chemicals
Ceycarb offers low silica activated carbon grades for this application.
Municipal Water Treatment
Industrial, agricultural, natural, and human activities can taint the quality of surface and groundwater sources. Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) is the best available technology to remove such pollutants.
Ceycarb offers the CEWC – Series for the removal of;
- Pesticides (atrazine), insecticides, and herbicides used in agriculture
- Disinfection by-products (DBP) including Trihalomethanes as a result of chlorine and other disinfectants
- Taste and odor forming compounds such as MIB and Geosmin
- Endocrine disrupting compounds
- Various organic pollutants
- Algal Toxins (anatoxin)
- Pharmaceuticals and Personal care products (PPCP)
- Excess Oxidizing agents such as chlorine, hypo-chlorine, chlorine dioxide, hydrogen peroxide, and ozone
Waste Water Treatment
Wastewater treatment has become very important nowadays, and activated carbon is used for the consumption for the absorption of toxic substances and pollutants that are not easily bio-degradable, with the removal of micropollutants, COD and AOX (Absorbable Organic Halogens) colour and odor gaining steadily in importance.
Ceycarb offers a wide range of products both in powder and granular forms for wastewater treatment applications such as the PACT process, physio-chemical water treatment processes, etc. These products are widely used in the petroleum, textile, sugar, and paper industries.
Removing Odors Emitted from Wastewater and Sewage Treatment Plants
Wastewater and sewage treatment plants emit malodorous compounds which are needed to be removed before they spread to the atmosphere. Ceycarb offers a wide range of activated carbon products to eliminate malodorous compounds such as Ammonia, H2S, mercaptans, aldehydes, methylamine, acetic acid, organic vapors, etc.
Ceycarb offers CEVC Series from normal, impregnated grades and high-performance catalytic products with an H2S breakthrough capacity of 0.3g/cc for efficient, cost-effective, and reliable use in the odor treatment process in the plants.
Aquarium Water Treatment
In ornamental fish farming and in hatcheries, water is contaminated with toxins due to animal excrement and decomposing foods. Ceycarb offers special products for removing such pollutants and treatment of aquarium water.
Swimming pool Water Treatment
In general, a certain level of free chlorine must be maintained to guarantee adequate disinfection considerable amounts of organic matter are introduced into pool water namely by bathers’ urine and sweat.
Hence, the removal of disinfection by-products such as trihalomethanes (THM), Halo acetic acids (HAAS), AOX, chloramines and organic compounds is required in swimming pool water treatment. Ceycarb offers different types of Granular (GAC) and powdered Activated carbon (PAC) grades for different cost-effective pool water treatment applications.
Effluent Water Treatment
Activated carbon is one of the most effective media for removing a wide range of contaminants from industrial and municipal wastewaters, landfill leachate and contaminated ground. As the world’s most powerful adsorbent, it can cope with a wide range of contaminants. Different contaminants may be present in the same discharge and carbon may be used to treat the total flow, or it may be better utilized to remove specific contaminants as part of a multistage approach.
As with potable water, Ceycarb has a dedicated reactivation facility that handles industrial grades of spent carbon. If required, the spent carbon can be returned and kept segregated – custom reactivation of the carbon can be taken from, and returned to, an industrial pool of carbon.
The specification and quality of this material are tightly controlled, ensuring the customer receives a reliable product. With dedicated industrial tankers and mobile equipment, Ceycarb can provide an exceptional service that helps customers meet and exceed their environmental responsibilities.
Whilst direct environmental protection is essential the reuse of water in industrial processes will provide a reduced environmental impact on a site, whilst offering potential cost savings on wastewater disposal and clean water supply. The typical range of environmental water contaminants that activated carbon is used to treat includes:
- Non-biodegradable organic compounds
- Adsorbable Organic Halogens (AOX)
- Inhibitory compounds for biological treatment systems
- Aromatic compounds
- Chlorinated/halogenated organic compounds
Remediation Water Treatment
Some types of industrial activities, farming, underground storing, landfilling, etc. can lead to contaminated water leaking into the soil, preventing the land from being able to support a healthy ecosystem and presenting serious health and environmental risks. In such cases, remediation treatment is required to restore the soil to its natural state, and sometimes this also requires treatment of the groundwater.
For these needs, Ceycarb offers, CEWC-G Series, remediation water treatment products, and solutions that will cleanse the groundwater table, and thus the soil, of various organic and inorganic contaminants such as MTBE, perchlorate, per fluorinated compounds, trihalomethane, and Hydrogen Sulphide. Our expert techs will analyse the type of contamination that has occurred to devise the ideal treatment method, allowing the soil to heal so it can support life as it should.
