The pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry generates wastewater containing a variety of chemical compounds. Pharmaceuticals are designed to be biologically active ingredients (API). Some are easily dealt with by biological treatment methods, but some waste streams contain chemicals that are toxic, environmentally harmful, or biologically non-degradable.
The need to remove hardly degradable drug residues in wastewater will only increase the coming years as environmental regulations become increasingly stringent. Manufacturers of drugs will therefore need wastewater solutions that can document no toxic effect on the ecosystem.
Aquarden is a market-leading specialist in the development and delivery of environmentally friendly systems for treating toxic and organic wastewater streams.
We offer a wide range of systems and solutions depending on the composition of the particular waste stream. Systems include our patented and prize-winning SCWO-solution. Aquarden’s SCWO-solution completely destroys hardly-degradable and toxic substances in industrial waste streams – at competitive prices – leaving the treated water so clean that it can be discharged to receiving water body, or perhaps reused as process water. Another interesting feature is that it often generate more energy that it consumes, which may be reused.
We work closely with our customers in all phases of wastewater challenge resolution. A solution from us may include initial laboratory scale performance tests on your wastewater, process design, manufacturing, installation, and support – all to ensure that you get the right application.
