LIFE Waste2Coag Project Develops New Sustainable Coagulants from Industrial Waste
Published by Retema
LIFE Waste2Coag project aims to demonstrate a viable and cost-effective solution for brine and metal waste valorisation by producing a sustainable coagulant that replaces the currently used commercial coagulants, reducing the dependency on external markets which keep increasing their prices.
The product will be used in water treatment plants, ensuring the use of resource-efficient processes for the provision of water services.
The electrolytic technology to be applied will be partially operated with renewable energy, turning it into a fully sustainable process based on the use of waste as raw materials and renewable energies.
Therefore, Global Omnium coordinates a team that will design, build and operate an electrolytic pilot system that will produce formulations of coagulants. These coagulants will be iron-based and aluminium-based with a neutral pH. Their efficacy will be proved by removing pollutants in wastewaters.
In addition to reducing pollution in wastewaters via electrolysis, this project will reduce water treatment costs and CO2 emissions by limiting the extraction and transportation of raw materials and commercial coagulants.
