Wet-Oxidation Process Optimized Waste Water Technologies
Under the slogan “Setting new benchmarks”, Bayer Technology Services (BTS) will be showcasing fully integrated solutions for waste water treatment.
One of the focal points will be Loprox (Low Pressure Oxidation), a patented wet-oxidation process used to pretreat highly polluted waste water prior to biological treatment. As a cost-effective alternative to other standard procedures, it uses comparatively mild reaction conditions to break down toxic organic substances or those with poor biodegradability to such a degree that the resultant low-molecular residual organic matter can be easily degraded in a biological treatment plant. The reaction heat released during this process and the heat recovery function used in the recuperator mean that the process can be operated without additional energy input. A further highlight is an energy-efficient aeration system for waste water treatment plants.
