It has long been recognised that adsorption processes are capable of reducing the amount of many metals to a very low level in water/wastewater.

Veolia Water Technologies has patented MetClean™ technology that utilises the adsorption process in a fluidised bed reactor to remove a range of metals from solutions.

Veolia Water Technologies' experience includes As and the following metals: Cd, Cr, Hg, Mo, Ni, Se, Zn, Cu, V, Ba and Sr.

Treatment efficiency is as high as 99% in a one process step.20 times less waste (by weight) is produced by using Met-Clean™.

The waste product resulting from the treatment is a granule with a dry solids content of 80-90%.The savings in waste disposal cost will normally be sufficient to finance the capital and operating costs for a MetClean™ plant.

The footprint of the MetClean™ process is relatively small, making it a very cost-effective solution for several applications.
