Combined treatment system removes endocrine disrupting compounds, kills pathogensITT Corp., a global provider of transport and treatment of water and wastewater, announced that its WEDECO ozone generators have been chosen by Air Products and Chemicals, Inc., for placement in a new treatment plant in Wichita, Kan. Together with Air Products’ Halia oxidation system, ITT’s WEDECO ozone generators form a complete advanced oxidation process (AOP) solution that removes endocrine disrupting compounds, according to ITT.
Greater than 90% removal rates are achieved for most of the investigated compoundsITT Corp. has released the results of a comprehensive study showing that ozone oxidation is highly effective for treating micropollutants like endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs). These potentially threatening substances, such as discarded pharmaceuticals, can be found in municipal wastewater effluents.
