The ultrasound technology is also used in industrial sectors in order to prepare problematic organic substances for better biodegradability.

  • Industrial wastewater treatment
  • Processing of water for industrial use
  • Treating surfaces
  • Desorption of organic substances
  • Dissolving of cell contents to enable recycling

Refractory organic pollutants, normally only treatable by costly chemical processes such as with leachate from landfills, can be so significantly altered with respect to their chemical structure by subjection to ultrasound that they become biologically degradable. So now even particularly difficult wastewaters (containing tributyltin, TBT, for example) can be treated with the confined to the generally available and economically advantageous biological method.

We are developing a broad range of previously unknown ultrasound variants resulting in new procedures for intensifying the processing of surfaces. Desorption of organic and inorganic substances and pollutants is improved in the reclamation of polluted soil. As with wastewater processing for the local community, we can employ our innovative technology and procedures in the industrial field in order to speed up and improve the techniques traditionally employed in biological wastewater processing and the treatment of sludges.

Disinfection of process water and wastewater

Ultrasound is ideal for disinfecting water with high solid concentrations (turbidity). In these cases, classic methods such as UV or chlorine are ineffective.

Organic contaminants

The chemical structure of persistent organic contaminants, which can usually only be treated with expensive chemical methods (e.g. landfill leachate), is changed by ultrasound treatment. Chemical bonds are broken up, molecule size is reduced with the result that these substances are made biologically available.
