Selective separation of toxic metals from specific industrial wastewater streams for water and metals re-use (METASEP)

Selective separation of toxic metals from specific industrial wastewater streams for water and metals re-use (METASEP)

Objective

Many industrial wastewater streams contain toxic metal captions or their oxyanionsin concentrations up to 500 mg/l, which must be removed before water recycling or discharge. A new technology for wastewater treatment with water and metal reuse is to be developed and comprises: selective metal bonding to new bonding agents; separation of the bonding agents by new pressure-driven MF/UF modules for metal concentration < 50 mg/l or by a new hybrid flotation/submerged MF/UF separation for metal concentration of 50 - 500 mg/l; recovery and recycling of the bonding agents. In contrast to conventional technology, the new one will achieve: higher bonding selectivity; fast reaction kinetics; lower residual metal concentration for water reuse or discharge; highly concentrated metal concentrates for reuse; continuous process; smaller units; higher water yield; reduced energy and chemicals consumption.
