Process Technology BIOFIT®.Oxyd2
Unlike other suppliers who rely on the total chemical oxidation treatment of this type of wastewater, H+E can provide a less expensive and thus more favourable combination of partial chemical oxidation and subsequent biodegradation of problematic contaminants. These substances typically owe their extraordinary stability to molecular rings or double bonds that, for a process to be successful, first need to be “opened” and converted into short-chain molecules.
H+E uses a combination of ozone and hydrogen peroxide that, at low pressure, targets and cracks the resistant bonds. This is known as partial oxidation. The quantity and residence time of the added ozone is precisely controlled, depending on the presence of other oxidants, such as hydrogen peroxide for example.
This results in fragmentation of the difficult-to-treat contaminants to the point where they can be treated and removed by simple and cost-effective microorganisms. A biological filtration system like, for example, BIOFIT®.F from H+E then isolate the “cracked” ingredients as biomass that then can be disposed of by combustion. In addition, only water and carbon dioxide remain as harmless end products of the process.
