Is Your Industrial Wastewater Facility Using the Right Chemical Tanks?

If your industrial company produces hazardous runoff from operating equipment, you need to treat the wastewater before dumping it into the sewer or wastewater stream. Depending on your industry, you may need to have a very detailed process that meets the highest standards. Each state and city might have their own standards and regulations you’ll need to meet, or you might be under federal regulations.

Are You Using the Right Storage System for Hazardous Leachate and Condensate?

Leachate and condensate from landfills can contain hazardous materials — either from the waste itself or as a result of chemical compounds breaking down. Leachate is liquid that comes in contact with or is released from waste. Condensate is the liquid generated as a result of the gas collection and recovery process. In both cases, the liquid can be extremely hazardous and can create environmental disasters that take decades to recover from.

Storing Liquid Ammonium Sulfate

Liquid ammonium sulfate (LAS) started as a liquid fertilizer that was applied to hard ground. Today, LAS has become widely accepted as a stable and effective source of ammonia for chloramination in wastewater treatment. Alternatives such as anhydrous or aqueous ammonia are hazardous, sometimes requiring pressurized storage tanks and special handling and safety procedures.

Proper Storage Protection for Your Diesel Exhaust Fluid

In 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency mandated the use of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) in diesel engines. In an SCR-equipped vehicle, the exhaust gas from the engine goes through a particulate filter to eliminate the soot and ash generated from burning diesel fuel.

The SCR system sprays diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) into the exhaust gas to help eliminate the NOx emissions in diesel engines. DEF is a combination of urea and deionized water, and the urea from the DEF and the exhaust gas react with a variety of metallic compounds to convert nitrogen dioxide and monoxide into nitrogen and water. 

It is critical that the diesel engine fluid stays pure. Impurities can cause the SCR system to stop, which will shut down the operation of the truck.

Poly Processing works with DEF manufacturers and distributors to provide reliable storage solutions that ensure their DEF stays 100% pure.
