Chemicals Used for Industrial Water Treatment Produced by Iranian Firm

TEHRAN (ANA)- Experts of a knowledge-based company in Iran succeeded in meeting the country's need to chemicals used for the treatment of industrial water.

“Our knowledge-based company makes efforts to indigenize production of chemicals used in the treatment of industrial water,” said Ziba Mohammadian Fard, the senior manager of the laboratory unit of the knowledge-based company.

“In addition to making and providing products like corrosion and sediment inhibitors, biocide and biodispersant, etc., services like the sale of precision instruments and various types of laboratory identification kits, supply and distribution of materials, providing technical and engineering services and consulting, training engineers and experts in various fields of corrosion and sediment control in industries are other activities of our company,” she added.

Mohammadian Fard noted that the knowledge-based company also produces various types of corrosion and sediment inhibiting materials, industrial antifoams, and certain industrial raw materials.

In a relevant development in June, scientists at Iran’s Amirkabir University of Technology (AUT) had also succeeded in removing color from industrial wastewater by using two new technologies.

Amir Hossein Karimi, a researcher at Amirkabir University of Technology and the head of the project titled ‘Electrode Improvement to Investigate the Simultaneous Use of Capacitive Deionization and UV Oxidation Processes for Desalination and Brine Wastewater Treatment’, elaborated on the method, saying, “The results of this research can be used for the wastewater treatment of industries where salt and organic matter exist together.”

Noting that industries like textile, pharmaceutical, petrochemical and oil industries can benefit from the results of this project, he said, “Generally, wastewaters cannot be treated by biological methods that are used for urban wastewaters because they contain dyes, poisons and different salts; therefore, in this project, we used two advanced technologies called advanced oxidation and capacitive deionization in order to remove salt and color.”

“In this research, we tried to remove salt and color from a synthetic wastewater by using a combined method to have the most salt absorption and color removal. Then, we designed a laboratory system that can use advanced oxidation and capacitive deionization technologies concurrently,” Karimi said.

“At the end, we also performed desalination and color removal tests. In the optimal state, we were able to completely remove the effluent color after 90 minutes,” he concluded.
