What are Water treatment additives?
Water is essential for life. Hence it is important to treat water before its use. Water treatment is a process of removing contaminants such as suspended solids, microorganisms and hazardous chemicals. A large number of chemical treatment products and specialty additives are used successfully around the world in many of the commercial, municipal and industrial process environments where they help to improve productivity and optimize the treatment method.
The scientifically formulated water additives include wastewater and effluent treatment chemicals, high performance industrial chemicals, reverse osmosis membrane products, eco-friendly biological formulations, advanced polymers and much more.
This report incorporates an in-depth assessment of Water treatment Additives market by type of water treatment, type of adhesives, by applications and geography.
What are the major applications of Water treatment additives?
Water treatment additives are widely used in various industries such as water, chemicals, food, paper, power, oil and gas. These additives improve the quality of water and makes it available for a specific use. For instance, the use of disinfectants kills all the microorganisms in water and hence prevents the wide spread of water borne diseases. The treated water can be used for drinking, industrial purpose, irrigation, water recreation and so on. The different types of additives used are scale inhibitors, corrosion inhibitors, organic polymers, disinfectants, coagulants, pH conditioners and many others which help in neutralization and treatment of waste water.
Water Treatment Additives Market
Market Research and Market Trends of Water treatment additives
The Metro Wastewater Reclamation District in Denver, Colo. recently began to treat wastewater effluent with a PAA formulation from Enviro Tech Chemical Services, Inc. which is known as Peragreen WW. Though the cost of PAA is higher, this disinfectant which is preferred over sodium hypochlorite as it allows users to avoid issues associated with toxic halogenated compound such as chlorine-containing disinfectants.
Researchers at Bath University in partnership with Wessex water are testing of algal farming in order to replace the use of chemicals for treating waste water. This method is particularly suited to remove phosphorus from sewage, which is an increasing problem for water treatment and is supposed to be cheaper and more sustainable .
The wastewater obtained from hospitals include cytostatic drugs which are used in cancer treatment, not only pollute the environment but can also harm human health as these drugs don’t break down easily. A group of researchers from Belgium and India have developed a novel method of treating wastewater, in which they have developed a slurry photo catalytic membrane reactor which carries out filtration in a similar process as used for drinking water with a help of LED light source and the drugs are further broken down with the help of titanium dioxide which is nontoxic and efficient.
In rural areas, it can be very expensive to build a new water treatment plant or connect with one in the next closest town and also to have an expertise to operate it. Hence, a movable water treatment system was developed at UCLA which fits in a shipping container and can be operated with a smartphone. It can treat agricultural runoff, brackish groundwater and nearly any other water source into potable water. This system is operating successfully in Panoche water district of California since 2017 .
In 2017, Center for Nanotechnology Enabled Water Treatment (NEWT) which is located at Rice University developed a technology which involves the use of energy from sunlight to transform salt water into fresh drinking water. This desalination system uses a combination of nanophotonics and membrane distillation technique .
