Increasing environmental concerns of heavy metal discharge have continued to fuel tightening regulatory permits. Additionally, discharge fines and public relations are a top priority for industry. With these concerns in mind, Nalco Water has developed the NALMET Heavy Metal Removal Programme. NALMET is a proprietary, patented technology of Nalco Water. NALMET can be used across a broad range of industries and applications, removing a wide range of metals from wastewater
NALMET programmes are targeted at effluents, which must comply with increasingly tighter standards for low level metals discharge.
Applications can include treatment of:
- Metal plating or surface finishing process wastewater
- Metals from incidental corrosion
- Incinerator or scrubber water
- Flue gas condensate
- Wastewater from metal-catalyzed or metal handling processes
- Cooling water blowdown.
