If not adequately treated, high levels of nitrate in water can have a significant environmental impact

One of the principal contaminants that must be recovered in landfill leachate, and in waste water in general, is ammonia. Ammonia-N in normally present in waste water or in leachate in several forms. Waste water treatment is therefore essential.

a technological approach

for ammonia recovery

 

In the execution of any project for the recovery of ammonia, Organics employs technology specifically developed for the treatment of large amounts of contaminated leachate or wastewater. However, our ammonia recovery systems can be adapted to any scale or chemical loading.

Assessment

The first step is the assessment of a particular situation. There are several different approaches to treating leachate or waste water and it is important to adapt.

Proposal

Armed with all the relevant details our engineers propose several options for treatment technology for ammonia loading and waste water treatment; a balancing act between cost, logistics and common sense.

Design

Once the proposal has been adapated to the circumstances, the design of the system is implemented. As these are usually bespoke systems, specific to particular pollution control situations, attention to detail is paramount.

Fabrication

The project moves to the workshop and our skilled technicians commence fabrication to specific design criteria ensuring that quality remains foremost.

Installation

Working closely with local contractors our engineers plan every detail of construction, installation and commissioning of the chosen design for waste water treatment; always ensuring the highest standards in quality and safety.

Operation

The principal objective is to ensure an effective long-term solution for leachate and waste water treatment. As such, we also ensure that post-installation operation and maintenance is second to none.

ammonia recovery

a unique approach to an age-old problem

Thermally-driven ammonia recovery was developed by Organics to offer an alternative route to that of pH adjustment for continuous-process ammonia recovery.

With a thermally-driven stripper no chemical additions are required, apart from the minor addition of anti-foam agent. The single important input is waste-heat with which to drive the chemical reactions.

If waste-heat is not available, the fuel-cost can be as prohibitive as that of chemical additions or carbon source requirements. Where waste-heat is available, from an engine-exhaust or unwanted biogas, the long-term operating cost can be confined to plant operation and maintenance, including electricity costs.

The preferred option within the Organics process is to use the feed ammonia-laden air directly into the combustion air in the heat-raising process. By this means ammonia gas is destroyed as a part of the process of thermally powering the system.
