Analysis of sand washing water from chemical waste land showing MCT adsorption efficiency
MCT is a reliable and efficient method for reduction of Mercury and Pesticides in polluted water with removal rates up to 98% in sand washing water from chemical waste spots
The Groyne 42 site located at Harboøre Tange is considered as one of the most contaminated sand spots in Denmark. It was utilized as a chemical waste depot through 1950s and 1960s. Today the site is managed by the Region Midtjylland. Fortum Recycling and Waste (FRW) has successfully demonstrated its MOPS-technology (multi-purpose onsite phase separator) to remediate waste products of high complexity from contaminated sand/soil, However, this solution requires a polishing treatment of the process water used. To evaluate the MOPS-technology FMC constructed and operated a pilot plant at the Cheminova’s Rønland Site.
To achieve the highest possible removal efficiency of pesticides, Mercury, and DOC contamination from the treated process water, MCT unit was added as a polishing step to the in the existing MOPS pilot plant.
The results clearly show that MCT is a reliable and efficient method for reduction of Mercury and pesticides from the contaminated water.
