Catalysts Are Launched for Water Treatment at Alfa Chemistry Catalyst
Alfa Chemistry Catalysts, a specialized sub-brand of Alfa Chemistry, proudly announced the release of varieties of catalysts for water treatment, including Zero valent iron (ZVI), Fe₂(SO₄)₃, FeSO₄, FeCl3, and FeOOH, which have long been used in water and wastewater treatment.
Due to the growth in population, there are quite large demand for fresh, safe and clear water. Agricultural irrigation and industrial usage are two fields where water is also intensively consumed. Therefore, it is if paramount importance to find improved methods to inexpensively and sustainably clean water.
“Traditionally, the most widely applied water treatment technologies include a combination of coagulation, sedimentation and filtration. But they have shortcomings. In recent years, catalysts, especially heterogeneous catalysts, have become the first choices to directly convert toxic molecules in water to nontoxic products due to its good activity and superior selectivity,” explains a senior scientist from Alfa Chemistry Catalysts. “Catalytic processes provide a competitive alternative to conventional water treatment technologies. They have much faster kinetics and are less operationally sensitive than current bioremediation-based methods.”
The biggest disadvantage of conventional wastewater treatment is the poor efficiency in the treatment of toxic and/or non-biodegradable and/or highly concentrated effluents. But After catalytic processes where catalysts of iron, titanium, copper, manganese or chromium are used, toxic and recalcitrant effluents can be effectively treated.
Another factor that should be put into consideration is that the catalysts developed for water treatment must have higher stability to treat contaminants at competitive costs. The in-stock catalysts for water treatment at Alfa Chemistry Catalysts include: Sodium Phosphate Dibasic, Zinc Sulfate, Sodium Sulfite, Copper Sulfate Solution, Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate, Calcium chloride hexahydrate, Iron Sulfate Solution and many more.
