Phosphate Induced Metal Stabilization

using Apatite II


Wastewater Treatment

Wastewater that is contaminated with metals (Pb, Cd, Zn, Cu), radionuclides (U, Pu), many non-metals (nitrate, sulfate), or other specific contaminants (perchlorate, TNT, RDX), can be treated using Apatite II in wastewater treatment configurations such as treatment tanks, or as a pre-treatment step in a traditional treatment system or wetlands. Because Apatite II sequesters up to 20% of its weight in metals, the efficiencies surpass all cation exchange resins for many metals at a fraction of the cost. Effluent can usually be discharged directly to the environment. Any solid products usually pass TCLP tests for most constituents and can be disposed of as non-hazardous waste.
