The Solution For Difficult-To-treat Wastewaters

Siemens has developed an easy-to-operate, packaged, electro-oxidation system that can treat even the toughest wastewaters.

Even small amounts of a problematic wastewater can cause big issues with a wastewater treatment plant. The chemical and petrochemical industries often find themselves at odds with small amounts of wastewaters that are difficult to treat or otherwise handle, and that demand a disproportionately high level of attention when it comes to disposal. These wastewaters typically have high chemical oxygen demand (COD); may contain toxic components (e.g. sulfides, mercaptans, phenols, cyanide); may be highly odorous; and may pose health risks to plant staff or others.
