Water treatment: What are the advantages of flocculation?

Water treatment: What are the advantages of flocculation?

Water management is a key component of greater sustainability for industry, as well as for local communities and cities. In addition to reducing water consumption, a major focus is on reuse and therefore on water treatment. Various processes help to purify the water in the respective wastewater treatment stages and return it to the water cycle. Flocculation plays an important role in this - find out why here.

Water treatment: New Pilot® oils for flocculants

Water treatment: New Pilot® oils for flocculants

Flocculation is an important process in wastewater treatment plants. Various flocculants are used in this process. They are responsible for causing solids to agglomerate into larger clusters so that they can be better separated from the water to be purified. Haltermann Carless now offers new low-viscosity base oils for water treatment. As a carrier fluid for polyacrylamide emulsions, Pilot® H products are characterised by their technical improvements and, above all, by their low aromatic content and biodegradability. Find out more about the advantages of our new Pilot® oils for flocculants.

Alcohol-to-Jet (AtJ) process can help deliver sustainable flying

Alcohol-to-Jet (AtJ) process can help deliver sustainable flying

Sustainable flying is increasingly likely to become a reality with the introduction of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF). In September 2023 the Europen Parliament approved the bloc’s Sustainable Aviation Fuel mandates in the push to dramatically cut aviation emissions. There is a growing demand for action as the legal framework and SAF quota commitments by the airlines begin to take shape. The Alcohol-to-Jet (AtJ) process is one of several production options. You can find out exactly how it works and what advantages it offers here.
