Waste Acid Recovery -- Detoxification and Reclamation
Based on the development of a polymer heat exchanger that can withstand 200 ūC, this is a commercially available system that recovers over 90% of process acids for reuse, and separates metals from waste streams. It is already in use in a few places, and is very broadly applicable; e.g., to galvinizers, platers, and innumerable other industrial processes. It would help keep a customer competitive, by reducing waste disposal costs. Payback is from 6 months to 2 years.
