JNE Environmental’s latest news and project case studies.
JNE Environmental has designed, built in-house, and shipped Fluoride batch treatment and pH correction systems to an ultrapure chemical manufacturer in Reno, Nevada. The fluoride treatment system is comprised of an incoming equalization tank, a specialized cone-bottom reaction tank, sludge waste holding tank, and a discharge effluent equalization tank to allow for safe discharge into the sewer system.
JNE Environmental has developed a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly pH correction solution — using the same principles as carbonated soda. This process can achieve the desired pH correction without the use of expensive plastics, dangerous industrial acids, or specialized protective equipment, and does not result in the addition of Chlorides or Sulfates.
JNE Environmental has a lot of history and experience with fluoride removal techniques from wastewater in the automotive sector; however, the wastewater from this particular client is unique in that their wastewater stream is actually ultrapure water. Ultrapure water poses a challenge because, at this purity, the water behaves like a solvent making it difficult to remove targeted impurities, such as fluoride.
JNE Environmental has designed and is currently manufacturing a 40 m3/hr dual Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) wastewater treatment system for a European plastic recycling company that is building a new facility in Canada. This plastic recycling process represents a unique and significant impact to the environment and JNE is proud to play a role in the process. This project is the largest project in JNE Environmental’s history and is commissioning in late 2019.
An environmental and sustainability solutions group approached JNE Environmental to supply two PM-2000 polymer make-down units as components to a larger wastewater treatment system. JNE Environmental was selected for the project because of the smaller physical footprint of our units, as well as very competitive cost.
When applied to a facility’s toxic liquid stream, the nickel is absorbed into the agents’ stabilizing matrix, and the water is absorbed into the polymer. The resulting solution, a gelatinous solid, can be safely and cost-effectively recycled, leading to an estimated 400% cost-savings to the client.
