REVATECH / Processes / Physico-chemical treatments

PROFESSIONAL TREATMENT

While it may appear simple, physico-chemistry in fact covers a large number of complex physical and chemical operations (adsorption, coagulation, flocculation, oxidation or reduction, precipitation etc.), requiring highly qualified and experienced personnel.

FLEXIBILITY

Like other techniques, physico-chemical treatment can be used both for recycling and for disposal of waste, whatever its physical state.

ECOLOGICAL TREATMENT

The treatment technique involves minimal consumption of reagents, following the “waste-to-waste” principle (using one type of waste to treat another). This reduces the amount of final residue produced, and helps to conserve durable resources.

REVATECH’S PHYSICO-CHEMICAL ACTIVITY

Physico-chemistry is one of our main activities. As such it is carried out by four different processing units, offering great flexibility of operation so as to meet the requirements of the market:

• one large-capacity disposal unit for waste containing small amounts of organic pollutants;

• one recycling unit incorporated within the previous one, for custom work (with substitution of facilities, and work being carried out in campaigns);

• one disposal unit (pre-treatment prior to biological purification) for waste containing a biodegradable fraction;

• one recycling unit for alkaline and saline batteries (using the REVABAT® process).
