A growing sewer network can create issues such as infrastructure damage, odor complaints, grease accumulation, and potential health and safety hazards, as well as accelerated corrosion of sewer assets, pump stations, discharge manholes, and treatment plants.
Both a fast-growing sewer network and an aging collection system can suffer similar maladies due to long detention times, periods of slow flow, and depletion of dissolved oxygen within sections of the network. Under these conditions, dramatic effects of odor and gas-phase corrosion can result in a reduction in quality of life for nearby homeowners or businesses, and rapid and severe damage to the sewer system infrastructure.
With rapid urbanization and increasing environmental pressure on industrial wastewater emissions, there is an increasing pressure on wastewater utilities to find safer and more sustainable solutions to prevent odor and grease build up, to protect existing and new collections system infrastructure, and to improve the quality of the wastewater entering the treatment process. There is no safer or more sustainable approach to solving these problems than through the use magnesium hydroxide.
While wastewater management and pollution prevention are a priority, waste-to-energy programs are increasingly needed to improve the energy efficiency of treatment facilities by maximizing the economics of biogas generation from anaerobic systems. Again, magnesium hydroxide is the primary alkali of choice to optimize biogas production.
