Specialized Applications

Perform advanced separations. Remove or concentrate ions of interest.

Our advanced separation solutions combine our IonFlux Ion Exchange MembraneElectroChem Advanced Electrodialysis systems, and the creativity of our chemists and engineers for specialized applications.

Technologies:

Benefit from:

  • Advanced processes utilizing ElectroChem and IonFlux membranes
  • Recover value, meet discharge requirements, reuse freshwater
  • Change water chemistry from scaling to non-scaling
  • Improve performance of existing assets
  • Target chloride removal for corrosion control
  • Target nitrates for water quality and discharge
  • Target sodium for agriculture or lithium for batteries
  • We can develop a solution for your specific treatment challenge

Advanced Separation Processes to:

  • Mine ions. Selectively recover and concentrate dissolved ions (elements) of interest.
  • Permanently change water chemistry to non-scaling. Use our Salt Splitter to change low solubility multivalent anion-cation pairs into high solubility multi-monovalent pairs.
  • Recycle antifreeze and glycol-water streams. Remove scaling compounds from previously difficult to treat glycol applications such as offshore hydrate inhibitors and antifreeze recycling.
  • Increase yields. Remove specific "pollutant" ions that damage yield in mine metal leaching processes. Remove magnesium and calcium loading in lithium brines.
  • Recover value. Remove nitrogen load, nitrates, or ammonia electrochemically and recover the output as a product of value.

Project Summaries

The SaltMaker Evaporator Crystallizer and the Ammonia Splitter have been proven on multiple raw landfill leachates and leachate RO brines.
