Jacobi’s Solutions are Used to Purify Several Sources of Water
Wastewater: Water is used in all sorts of production processes as a utility. In some cases, water needs to be treated prior to being used in industrial processes. During processing, the water becomes wastewater that is hard to define, but needs to be either recycled or discharged according to the local regulations. Wastewater can be treated on-site prior to reuse or discharge. According to discharge regulations, water needs to meet specifications on COD, TOC, AOX, heavy metals, pesticides and odour, amongst others.
Remediation: Groundwater treatment is essential to treat spilled or leaked materials mostly on industrial sites. Alternatively, the land could have been polluted in the past and needs to be restored by treating water. Jacobi’s services are used in pump and treat solutions and also for the removal of airborne contaminants that are emitted during the remediation activities.
Landfill leachate: This is a water that can have negative impact on ground and surface water that therefore needs to be treated. Typically, it contains various organic compounds (COD, AOX, EOX…) and a cocktail of inorganics. Due to the variable composition, biological and chemical processes are typically supported using activated carbon.
Emergency treatment: Accidental spills or firewater from firefighting are usually contaminated with impurities and collect in a pool. Often, the on-site installed wastewater treatment plant cannot deal with this type of contaminated water and so extra treatment with mobile filters is needed prior to discharge in the environment.
To meet all these challenges, Jacobi carbons offers a customised package with immediate availability. On top of this, we have developed a collection of top-of-the-range adsorption products that maximise performance and keep costs down to a minimum.
