The Organics Group, a UK and Thailand based wastewater therapy specialist, not too long ago accomplished the turnkey design, manufacture and set up of its newest HK$ 38 million (US$ 4.8 million) thermal ammonia removing facility to deal with leachate from the West New Territories landfill (WENT), the largest landfill in Hong Kong operated by SITA Waste Services.
The facility is designed to deal with as much as 1230 m3 per day of landfill leachate with an ammonia focus of 4500 mg / litre. The stripped ammonia is oxidised thermally to nitrogen fuel. Organics progressive air-stripping course of incorporates a number of novel options that minimise working prices together with processing at elevated temperatures which avoids the want for alkali addition and minimises operator enter.
Organics specialises in the software of this patented course of. The firm has designed and constructed all 14 of the thermal ammonia strippers in Hong Kong. The smallest has a stream fee of 480 m3/day and the largest 2,600 m3/day.
“The handover of the WENT 3 thermal ammonia stripper further enhances Organics reputation for delivering high quality process engineering and pollution control solutions”, mentioned Dr Robert Eden, Managing Director of Organics.
Significant enhancements in effectivity have enabled Organics to dramatically scale back the energy required to run the processes concerned and keep away from the want for major gas sources. There at the moment are a number of potential choices to transform ammonia wealthy wastewaters into worthwhile secondary income streams equivalent to ammonium salts; liquified ammonia fuel, ammonium hydroxide and electrical energy technology from ammonia gas.
