Water pH is not only an agricultural problem. Eco2mix can inject carbon dioxide into wastewater and other processed waters, offering a sustainable and non-polluting pH control system. Using carbon dioxide is eco-friendly and safe. It can be used to neutralize alkaline process waters in many industries.
Dairies generate alkaline wastewaters, where the pH can reach 10. This alkalinity needs to be neutralized before discarding it.
Bottle cleaning produces wastewater with a high alkaline pH, sometimes near 11. To prevent lime deposits on the bottle, the pH needs to be reduced.
The paper and pulp industry requires exact pH. Using carbonic acid ensures precise results because of its flat neutralization curve.
The mercerization process involves immersion in a caustic soda (sodium hydroxide) solution, which later needs to be neutralized.
During the de-liming process, the use of carbonic acid eliminates acid risks, reduces nitrogen in the effluent and reduces ammonia gas in the plant.
Concrete produces alkaline wastewaters. Carbonic acid neutralizes wastewater from concrete production and construction sites. In this industry, carbonic acid prevents lime scaling in the wastewater pumps and calcification on the concrete’s surface.
