Project Idea Concept
Current Situation of Production at RUC-site in Kallo, Belgium
 Waste streams contain large
amounts of
Mercaptobenzothiazole (MBT),
some amines, Zn2+ and other
chemicals
 Complex pre-treatment in
several tanks with sulfuric acid
before biological waste water
treatment
 Some recyclable fractions can
be used again, but most are
burned or abolished in the
biology before the waste
water is passed to the river

Project Idea Concept
Future Scenario: Development of robust waste water pre-processing
 Membrane and/or ion
exchange technology
 For large scale factories
and small scale
pretreatment plants
 Decreased amount for
biological waste water
treatment
 Higher recycling rate of
components, e.g. MBT,
bromide
5
Idea Impact
 Reduction of the amount of zinc having to be treated in the
biological waste water treatment
 currently: around 430 kg/year
 possible reduction to „0“
 Recycling of MBT which is now burned or abolished and that could
be used again in the process
 raw material savings: -10%
 Cost savings – reduction of costs for sending certain components
to the river
 Simplified Process Design in general

Looking for partners…
 … specialist in membrane technologies to remove selective
organics from waste water
 … specialist in alternative technologies to remove selective
organics from waste water
 … other companies having similar waste water problems
