Producing sugar and bioethanol is a water intensive process. Optimizing the raw water and waste water treatment helps you operate cost-effectively while also helping to achieve your environmental targets.
Raw water Treatment
Raw water treatment is used to optimize most water-based industrial processes within the sugar industry, such as heating, cooling, processing, cleaning and rinsing. The ultimate goal is to reduce operating costs and risks. Poor water treatment can cause serious damage both to the process and the final results. Surfaces of pipes and vessels can be affected by corrosion and steam boilers can scale up or corrode.
We will help you to deal with numerous water treatment challenges within your production process.
Waste water Treatment
Waste water treatment within the sugar and bioethanol industry is an essential part of environmental protection. Since our products already are widely used in raw water treatment plants, it was natural that our coagulants would be used in the wastewater treatment as well. Continuous development of our products, product portfolio and application know-how will support you to be as effective as possible in waste water treatment.
We offer a wide range of water treatment chemicals that improve:
- Nutrient removal
- BOD/COD removal
- Suspended Solids removal
- Color removal
- Others (sulfide removal, heavy metal removal, etc.)
- Sludge dewatering
Our products can each be used individually or as part of a complete solution that will support customer applications such as:
- DesinFix™ - The environmentally friendly disinfection system
- Kemira FilamentEx™ - Our solution against filamentous bacteria
- Kemira H2S-Guard™ - The tool for odor and corrosion control
- Kemira's biogas program - Enhancement for your biogas production
