Applications

LEACHATE AND CONTAMINATED SOIL

Leachate from landfills are complex effluents which contain various types of organic, inorganic and microbial pollutants. In addition to containing suspended solids and turbidity, these effluents carry many microorganisms (viruses, bacteria, yeast, protozoa, etc.). There are also phosphorus compounds and heavy metals that are hardly eliminated. With tighter standards of landfill and incineration of waste (REIMR), technology developed by E2Metrix is indicated to allow safe release of these effluents.

PARKS AND CAMPING: 0 PHOSPHORUS

Several systems exist for the treatment of sanitary wastewater. However, with tighter standards especially for phosphorus release, E2Metrix offers a compact solution to treat wastewater, until disinfection.

MINES AND PETROLEUM INDUSTRY

Many contaminants are hardly removed by conventional methods (biological and others). Electrocoagulation with ANO2M is an innovative and emerging technology which represents a viable alternative for the treatment of wastewater from mines and petroleum industry. Our technology reduces, easily, heavy metals and hydrocarbons.

COOLING TOWER WATER

A simple to operate, chemical-free, cost-effective solution to control bacteria for Building Owners, Facility Managers, HVAC Integrators, Engineers & Green Building Specialists involved with the following installations:

• Office Buildings
• Institutions (hospitals, universities, long-term care facilities)
• Convention Centers
• Hotels and Resorts
• Industrial Processes

WATER REUSE

Recycling wastewater for reuse reduces the need for fresh water, a valuable and limited resource. E2Metrix system allows the safe reuse of wastewater, once treated by electrocoagulation. Different contexts are interesting such as wastewater reuse in car wash stations.

FOOD PROCESSING INDUSTRY

Treatment of wastewater from cheese factories and diaries is still required before being discharged into the environment due to the high load of organic matter, nitrogen and phosphorus. Electrocoagulation is a simple, economical and effective method to remove solids, oils and fats and BOD5 present in this kind of water. Nitrogen, including the ammonia nitrogen form, can be eliminated by forming struvite, insoluble mineral that is considered as fertilizer for soil.

HARVESTING AND PRIMARY DEWATERING OF MICROALGAE

Sustainable development is a principle key for the management of natural resources. Continued use of fossil fuel energy resources is no longer viable due to the depletion of world reserves. Moreover, microalgae can fight against climate changes by reducing CO2 emissions, waste that becomes a source of nutrition. Consequently, the emergence of bioenergy is one of the priorities of the action plan of Quebec against climate changes 2013-2020. Several research initiatives to develop alternative energy resources such as 3rd generation biofuels or from microalgae are currently underway. Microalgae harvesting is a critical phase, especially for the production of biofuels. Electrocoagulation is proven to be an interesting technology for harvesting at a very low energetic cost. Furthermore, this technology allows the primary dewatering of the biomass, without altering either the cellular membrane or cellular contents.
