Reagent dosing

Chemical conditioning through reagent dosing is designed to coalesce (or agglomerate) the smaller sludge particles (1−10 µm) to produce larger ones, and to reduce the colloidal (the sub-0.1 µm particle/macromolecular size range) content of the particulate matter. This then increases both the particle sedimentation rate and the permeability of the cake − the solids sediment formed from the particles. In doing so, the efficiency of the downstream thickening and dewatering processes is increased.

How do you solve a problem like PFAS?

PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are generated from the breakdown of fluorinated polymers. The activation barrier for their breakdown is huge and the only fully commercialised processes possibly capable of destroying PFAS are thermochemical ones.
