Chemical – Pharmaceutical

In the chemical and pharmaceutical sector, water is the most used solvent, both as an ingredient in formulations and as a cleaning agent. It is estimated that chemical industries globally consume about 15% of freshwater resources.

More eco-efficient solutions are needed for the treatment of wastewater and the recovery of water itself.

Problem:

The treatment of wastewater from production processes is a particularly critical step: the composition, the quantities produced, and the variability of flows make treatment operations even more elaborate.

The types of aqueous solutions that constitute waste can vary widely:

  • Wastewater from detergent production, mainly containing surfactants or from the production of personal care products, characterized by high concentrations of pollutants;
  • Washing waters from mixers and reactors in drug production, containing active ingredients;
  • Wastewater from the production of glues or adhesives, containing inks or silicone compounds or from the production of pesticides and fertilizers, containing sulfates, chlorides, nitrates, and ammonium salts among others;
  • Wastewater from the production of explosives, containing sulfates, chlorides, nitrates, and ammonium salts among others;
  • Water-glycol mixtures;

Most water treatment technologies would not be able to remove the various pollutants present.

Solution:

Vacuum evaporation, in addition to having the highest separation efficiency, can effectively manage those compounds otherwise difficult to treat, recovering them.

Advantages:

→ Recovery of raw materials
→ Recovery of water reusable in the process
→ Reduction of disposal costs
