COD Reduction

In wastewater treatment with organic coagulants, it is usually only

possible to "flocculate" the solid components out of the water.

Industrial wastewater in particular often contains no solid

contaminants at all.


SEPAR CHEMIE, COD-reduction, waste water fees, adsorbtion agent, flotation agent, activated charcoalIn spite of this fact, such wastewater may contain sufficient solute

organic components to have a considerable chemical oxygen demand (COD)

that makes it unsuitable for discharge into the sewage system or

otherwise involves high wastewater costs and fees.


SEPAR CHEMIE has developed the following products for specific

treatment of such wastewater types, in both solid and liquid form

  • ADSORBENTS (POLY SEPAR® AM types) and
  • FLOTATION AGENTS (POLY SEPAR® CFL types)
  • ACTIVE CHARCOALS in the product range.

These are combination products containing various inorganic and organic

components. They result in COAGULATION and ADSORPTION of finely

dispersed and solute water components in a single treatment step. These

contaminants can then be removed by means of sedimentation or flotation.
