DEMON Nitrogen Removal Treatment System
DEMON Nitrogen Removal Treatment System
World Water Works’ DEMON treatment system for removal of nitrogen from wastewater provides reliable performance and numerous benefits over traditional nitrification-denitrification systems, making it ideal for municipal and industrial clients that have wastewater streams with high ammonia concentrations.
A DEMON system can play an important role in wastewater treatment energy self-sufficiency, reducing costs, and optimizing any wastewater facility’s footprint. Other major benefits include reductions in ammonia load to the main treatment process, reduced sludge handling volumes, and less greenhouse gas production. More than thirty systems are currently operational using the patented DEMON technology, which was based on extensive academic, lab, field pilot, and full-scale experience.
The DEMON system features ammonia oxidizing bacteria (AOB), which convert half the ammonia to nitrite. A second anaerobic biological process uses Anammox bacteria to convert the combination of nitrite and remaining ammonia directly into nitrogen gas. This system reduces energy requirements by 60 percent, eliminates the need for all chemicals, and produces 90 percent less sludge. The system also features a low carbon footprint – the anaerobic process actually consumes carbon dioxide. The true key to the process success is the patented control strategy and patent pending biomass separation device that enriches the specialized slowly growing biomass. This enhances process robustness and treatment capacity.
Bionomic Industries, Inc., a manufacturer of proven air pollution abatement, product, and heat recovery technologies, has announced the first major breakthrough NOx control chemistry for a wide range of scrubber system operations and applications.
Unlike typical NOx sulfide/caustic control chemistry, low toxicity BIONOxSOLVER will not liberate flammable and dangerous hydrogen sulfide gas at pH use conditions and its special proprietary formulation of powerful nitrogen dioxide reducing agents can achieve over 33% greater removal efficiency with a simple addition to caustic.
Typical applications include removal of nitrogen dioxide emissions from catalyst calcining and preparation, precious metals dissolving, acid dipping and pickling of metals, silicon wafer and circuit board etching, nitrite and nitrate chemical production, medicinal production, nitric acid storage and purging, and nitrogen dioxide removal.

EHC-L by Adventus, is a cold-water soluble formulation of EHC that is specially designed to be emplaced via existing wells and/or hydraulic injection networks for the treatment of a wide range of groundwater contaminants. . EHC-L is a stable, buffered, micro-emulsion of slow-release, food-grade carbon (lecithin), ferrous iron and a redbox buffer (cysteine). EHC-L is designed for on-site dilution with cold water and subsequent application via screened wells or direct push technology for the treatment of compounds amenable to reductive transformation, including chlorinated hydrocarbons and some dissolved heavy metals. It generates both biotic and abiotic reductive mechanisms and capitalizes on synergies between the two.
RSC Bio Solutions
RSC Bio Solutions’ new ready-to-use non-hazardous formula lines Gunk powered SafeCare and Liquid Wrench powered by EnviroLogic include cleaners, degreasers and lubricants. The bio-based product lines include truck and equipment wash, heavy duty degreaser, universal parts washing fluid, general purpose cleaner and degreaser, penetrating oil, jack oil, aerial fluid and mobile equipment hydraulic fluid.
AkzoNobel Surface Chemistry
AkzoNobel Surface Chemistry’s Berol® 609 is an alcohol ethoxylate blend designed to match the key properties and performance of nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs) typically used in industrial degreasing formulations (NP9 and NP10 ). At the same time, this product provides a safe, biodegradable alternative and exceeds the degreasing power of other NPE replacements. Completely water-soluble, it may be used as a direct, drop-in replacement for NP9 and NP10 in aqueous cleaning formulations.
CBI Polymers’ DeconGel™ decontaminates a broad range of surfaces, including concrete, steel, painted or unpainted, glove boxes, hoods, and casks. The gel’s binding properties trap and encapsulate a wide spectrum of radioisotopes and chemicals in a simple, no-preparation process. Users simply apply, let dry, and peel, and the dried film containing the contaminants can be disposed of according to appropriate regulations.
