Chemical Industry

Home Domain Domain expertise Chemical Industry

The effluent from this industry contains high COD, BOD, pH and total solid content. This waste is generated from chemicals used in processes, spent catalyst, oils & grease from pumps etc. it’s a big challenge for Effluent Treatment Plants to maintain their COD and other parameters of their effluent to meet specifications decided by regulatory board. In most of the cases the effluent composition keep changing (if some reaction takes place in holding tank or effluents from new plants enter in the existing stream). To treat such effluents, Industries have to spend huge amounts. The characteristics of discharge effluent vary, depending on the product manufactured, the materials used in the process, and the other process details. The typical characteristics of discharge effluent for chemical industries are listed in the table below:

Sr Parameter Unit Concentration range
1 Color - Grey / black
2 Temperature ºC 25 – 30
3 pH - 6-9
4 Total solid mg/lit 200
5 Total suspended solid mg/lit 2700 – 4050
6 Total volatile solid mg/lit 81
7 BOD mg/lit 2615
8 COD mg/lit 5500-8000


Problems in ETP:

  • High pollution load and have continued to pose a critical problem of environmental pollution
  • More chemical usage for neutralization
  • High concentration of readily decomposable organic matters
  • Foul smell due to decomposition of soluble and suspended organic matters present in the waste waters
  • Presence of refractory compounds
  • High operating treatment cost
  • Low yield of biogas due to byproducts

HyCator® Reactor Systems for Chemical Industry

HyCa Technologies have a range of products which are environmentally safe and cost effective for effluent treatment of Chemical Industry. We generally suggest HyCator® reactor systems to effluent treatment plants in the following manners but it varies as per the client requirements and limitations.

The applications of HyCator® reactor at effluent treatment plant are listed below:

  1. HyCator® MBD increases the digestibility of the effluent in UASB digestor and aerator by breaking long-chain / polymeric/ refractory compounds and thus, reduce the COD and increase the Biogas production. HyCatorTH:MBD can also be installed in the inlet effluent streams (High load) / neutralization tank or recycle stream of effluent, if any. 
  2. HyCator® OLM ensures the energy efficient, precise, microlevel, online mixing even at very high flows. It will help to reduce the chemicals in neutralization and subsequent processes.
  3. HyCator® DOB increases the dissolved oxygen content in aerator tanks as compared to conventional surface aerator or diffused aerator and also, increases the activity of microbes by de-flocking them. Thus results in reduction in sludge generation, hence, very less load on clarifiers and less solid disposal issues.
