Wastewater exudation from an industrial facility can carry a wide and variable range of contaminants, including BOD, COD, color, phenols, cyanides, sanitary waste, etc. Ozone exhibits advanced oxidation power for the reduction of a wide range of contaminants, as well as the destruction of organic compounds.
Ozone reduces processing costs and reduces or eliminates penalties associated with contaminated water disposal. Another benefit is the use of clean, environmentally friendly technology that is as effective and as economical as traditional chemical technologies.
Many industrial applications can benefit from the potential of ozone for wastewater treatment, including pharmaceutical, textile, automotive, foundry, and many more.
Traditional Laundering involves many chemicals, hot water, and high sewage costs. Using Ozone for commercial laundry saves your money by reducing energy consumption, conserving water, and reducing detergent and chemical use.
The use of ozone in cooling tower treatment has significantly increased in recent years. Several factors give this concept a great deal including
Money savings due to lower operating costs over time
No on-site chemical inventory
No toxic discharge, chloramines
Water conservation due to no TDS buildup from disinfectants
Ozone is produced on-site and requires no storage of dangerous chemicals
Lower corrosion rates of the system
No regular disinfection system maintenance required
No special training for employees operating the system
Elimination of Legionella spread and hazard to human health
Eligibility for LEED certification
Ozone has been successfully used in pulp bleaching for over 25 years offering high pulp brightness and strength with lower pulp production costs over a longer time accommodated by an ecologically clean process.
It offers :
Environmentally and ecologically clean solutions as well as adherence to most local environmental regulations
Better pulp quality than achieved by alternative methods
It lowers pulp production costs as well as total operating costs.
High reliability and automation of the process
Easy and safe operation, if compared to traditional chemical oxidizers.
The oil and gas industry can use the benefit of ozone for water reuse and treatment in the fracking process. Ozone is powerful in removing VOCs and breaking down the most dangerous chemicals. The use of ozone technology reduces the use of chemicals involved in the treatment and helps natural gas companies recycle water.
Ozone is a suitable solution for the cannabis industry. Ozone oxidizes harmful bacteria, mold, and spores without changing the properties of cannabis. As gas or aqueous ozone can be used, for example, to purify and disinfect water, eliminate odors from grow rooms, or treat bugs and bacteria in products.
Textiles utilize several wet and dry processing techniques to achieve desired effects. The production of jeans consumes approximately 350 million m3 of water every year. Also, there is a large amount of wastewater and solid waste generated by the textile industry. Chemical-free and dry-bleaching technologies, such as ozonation, are therefore the best economic and environmental solutions.
In Canada Absolute Ozone® generators according to government regulations can be used exclusively for organic matter or mineral oxidation only and not for pest control, disinfection or microbial and virus deactivation.
