The patented zero-waste Crystalactor® water treatment technology is used as advanced treatment of both drinking water and (industrial) waste water for removal of a large number of heavy metals and other inorganic compounds. The Crystalactor® technology is a flexible technology that can be used for treatment of both large and small water flows.
The technology has been implemented in world's largest softening installations, but is also used to recover fluoride from sub flows in the semi-conductor industry, recover phosphate as struvite or for treatment of concentrate from inland desalination plants and membrane filtration units in order to reuse the water. With the latter, the Crystalactor® technology contributes to the zero-liquid-discharge principle.
The technology is based on the selective removal of the compound by crystalisation as a slightly soluble salt. The crystalisation is performed in a reactor of the fluidized-bed type (the so-called pellet reactor), in which the crystals precipitate on a seed material (e.g. sand particles). Next to an effluent with a highly reduced concentration, pure and almost water-free, reusable pellets are produced.
