As well as being a powerful disinfectant, ClO2 can also be used to oxidise challenging wastewater pollutants such as cyanide, phenols, sulphides, iron and manganese from industrial wastewater streams
Increasing regulations mean that acceptable discharge limits for a number of industrial pollutants will fall by >30% in the next 5 years
Where low levels of persistent industrial residuals are found in wastewater, Chlorine Dioxide can often strike the ideal balance between a low cost, environmentally friendly treatment for these waste streams, when compared with chemical and capital intensive programs based on peroxide and/or UV.
Used as a complement to advanced biological wastewater treatment systems that are designed to treat the bulk of the waste stream, chlorine dioxide can be used as a polishing agent for the final stream. Unlike chlorine based treatments, ClO2 does not form complex chlorinated by-products, and can often be discharged to watercourses without dechlorination, eventually degrading to salt. Unlike peroxide based systems, no catalysts or pH adjustments are required, with most ClO2 action taking place within the normal pH range.
