How Do We Do It?

The Elcon processing solution is based on patented, ambient pressure thermal oxidation which treats high-strength COD waste. The embedded energy in the waste is sourced (organic matter), and is able to create efficient processes at competitive prices. 

Four process steps are summarized:

  • Chemical-physical pre-treatment.
  • Steam stripping followed by thermal oxidation of the gas phase.
  • Vapor compression distillation.
  • Sludge mineralization.

The results:

  • Distilled water for re-use.
  • Chemically and physically stabilized and inert sludge for disposal at proper sites.
  •  Mineral salts for re-use.
