Thermochem supplies a range of Thermax polyelectrolytes for raw water clarification, effluent treatment, colour removal and a range of process applications.
Polyelectrolytes are water-soluble polymers carrying ionic charge along the polymer chain. Depending upon the charge, these polymers are anionic or cationic. Polyelectrolytes are available in a wide range of molecular weights and charge densities. Homo polymers of acrylamide are also included in the family of polyelectrolytes though they do not carry any charge. These are called nonionic. Polyelectrolytes have got a wide range of applications right from water purification, oil recovery, colour removal, paper making, mineral processing, etc. Polyelectrolytes are both flocculants as well as de flocculants depending upon the molecular weight. A flocculant is essentially a solid liquid separating agent while a de flocculant is a dispersing agent.

New technologies are being produced to assist in the treatment of waste waters, conforming to strict environmental regulations. One of these new technologies being proposed is the use of efficient microorganisms (EM). EM technology involves growing, applying, managing and re-establishing high populations of beneficial microorganisms in an environment or system. The use of effective microorganism technology has broadened in the last two decades from agriculture to water treatment, odor control, animal husbandry, human health, and other numerous industrial treatments. This technology is not unique to anyone and is available with many technology partners across the globe which makes is more sustainable in future.
EM technology may help mitigate water crisis by removing impurities from waste water for recycling. EM acts to purify wastewater by devouring all of its toxins and eliminating the stench of solid waste almost immediately. EM also has the ability to absorb toxic gases (example, hydrogen sulphide and ammonia) and convert them into organic acids, thereby eliminating their foul odour. EM also has been successfully tested in coloured effluents and was found that it was able to reduce the colour more efficiently and consistently.
How does it work ?
The basis for using these EM species of microorganisms is that they secrete enzymes, antioxidants, and metallic chelates. The creation of an antioxidant environment by EM assists in the enhancement of the solid liquid separation, which is the foundation for cleaning water.One of the major benefits of the use of EM is the reduction in sludge volume. Theoretically, the beneficial organisms present in EM should decompose the organic matter by converting it to carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) while using it for growth and reproduction. Studies have suggested that this is the case for both wastewater treatment plants and also septic tanks.Introducing EM into the anaerobic treatment facilities help to reduce the unpleasant by-products of this decomposition and also reduce the production of residual sludge.These factors tend to suggest that theoretically EM should assist in the treatment of wastewater by improving the quality of water discharged and reducing the volume of sewage sludge produced.
Well its very simple to put up how a technology works , the most challenging part is implementing and sustaining this EM technology and even more crucial challenge selecting the "CORRECT BREED OF MICROBES". The current market trend involves using of a set of "READY MADE MICROBES/ENZYMES" and try to do some site trails with the same. This is where the technology fails. The right approach is to breed the microbes based on Effluent and then try to work with the effluent as the entire basis of this technology is letting the microbes grow and sustain in an environment suitable for it and "EVERY WASTE WATER IS DIFFERENT" even though the industry type might be the same.
Thankfully Thermax Chemical Division's complex Biotechnology Lab & highly talented scientist have more than enough expertise to select and breed the right microbes. We are sure this technology can help a lot of Industries to treat their effluent in a more efficient & environmental friendly manner and reduce the dependency on power intensive treatment methods and also avoid use of inorganic chemicals.
