EU's annual production of ferrous sulfate is about 5 million tons generated by the steel and Ti industries (SOLLAC, KEMIRA, etc.). Small part is used as antimoss and the rest is waste disposed. Alkalis ferrate 'AF' was successfully synthesized within contract No BRPR-CT97-0392 using FeSO4 and two patents are filed. AF has been tested on the laboratory scale and can replace current reagents in water treatment. AF are also efficient for effluents' decontamination, cyanide oxidation, organic materials' destruction, soil remediation, etc. The consortium proposes large-scale production of AF in sufficient amounts to test the mentioned applications on industrial scale by SLE and SMEs. It will design and construct a demonstration unit of 20 kg/h for AF production. The consortium will collect necessary data for the industrial production of these new multipurpose reagent around 2007 to satisfy the demand of various industrial sectors.
