project idea concept current situation of production at ruc site in kallo belgium
Project Idea ConceptCurrent Situation of Production at RUC-site in Kallo, Belgium
  • Waste streams contain large amounts of Mercaptobenzothiazole (MBT), some amines, Zn2+and other chemicals
  • Complex pre-treatment in several tanks with sulfuric acid before biological waste water treatment
  • Some recyclable fractions can be used again, but most are burned or abolished in the biology before the waste water is passed to the river
project idea concept future scenario development of robust waste water pre processing
Project Idea ConceptFuture Scenario: Development of robust waste water pre-processing
  • Membrane and/or ion exchange technology
  • For large scale factories and small scale pretreatment plants
  • Decreased amount for biological waste water treatment
  • Higher recycling rate of components, e.g. MBT, bromide
idea impact
Idea Impact
  • Reduction of the amount of zinc having to be treated in the biological waste water treatment
    • currently: around 430 kg/year
    • possible reduction to „0“
  • Recycling of MBT which is now burned or abolished and that could be used again in the process
    • raw material savings: -10%
  • Cost savings – reduction of costs for sending certain components to the river
  • Simplified Process Design in general
