Case Study

Using ‘TransMembraneChemiSorption' (TMCS) For Ammonia Removal From Industrial Waste Waters

Source: 3M Separation and Purification Sciences Division

Dissolved gases like NH3, H2S or NOx in waste water lead to contamination in the sewage system and high treatment costs for municipal waste water treatment plants. This translates into high penalty fees that are paid by the company discharging these contaminates into the sewage stream. In many cases a membrane-based water treatment system can be justified because of a favorable pay back time.
