IER provides safe alternatives to wastewater treatment chemicals to Chicago, Illinois businesses including food and beverage, meat and dairy processing, microelectronic, municipal wastewater, winery and brewery businesses.
AMALGAM is a safer, greener and more cost effective Chicago wastewater treatment solution.
AMALGAM-60 (60% Mg(OH)2) has a higher neutralizing value per pound than any other alkaline additive. This translates into a 40% reduction in chemical usage when compared with caustic soda, while being significantly safer for operators to handle and more nutritive for the microorganisms being maintained – making it the most cost-effective option.
When an alkaline compound dissolves in water, they produce OH– (hydroxide) ions, making the solution more alkaline.
AMALGAM-60 (60% Mg(OH)2) provides two hydroxides for alkalinity compared to NaOH Caustic Soda (Sodium Hydroxide).
The required usage rate of AMALGAM-60 is far less than NaOH.
AMALGAM is non-hazardous and non-corrosive, making it easier and safer to handle for people in Chicago. Spills caused by AMALGAM are non-reportable.
Caustic Soda (NaOH) can be strongly irritating and corrosive causing burns and damage to skin tissue which is why AMALGAM is a perfect replacement.
AMALGAM provides an environmentally-friendly wastewater treatment chemicals solution for Chicago. Because magnesium is a macronutrient, the core element of chlorophyll which makes everything green, it is beneficial to the environment.
Magnesium also helps in reducing sludge volume, reducing sludge hauling fees due to its coagulation properties.
IER is a Chicago wastewater treatment chemical supplier. Wastewater from industrial manufacturers and processing plants have a range of chemicals and total suspended solids (TSS) which can make treating the water more difficult.
We work with a range of industries and manufacturers to help meet your needs and comply with industry, local and regional regulations and guidelines.
IER provides a safe and environmentally friendly alternative to industrial wastewater treatment chemicals by using AMALGAM to neutralise the water.Our Other Industries Serviced
IER provides wastewater treatment chemicals for Chicago Sewage and Municipal networks. Sewage networks can provide challenges including infrastructure damage, odor complaints, potential health and safety hazards, corrosion of sewer assets, pump station wells, discharge manholes and treatment plants.
With fast-paced urbanization and development and environmental pressure on industrial emissions, there is an increased pressure on water utilities to find safer and sustainable solutions to wastewater treatment chemicals in Chicago.

IER is a Chicago wastewater treatment chemical supplier. Wastewater from food and beverage companies have high concentrations of total suspended solids (TSS), chemical oxygen demands (COD), biological oxygen demand (BOD), fats oils and grease (FOG), and nutrients such as nitrogen (including ammonia) and phosphate.
It is important to treat wastewater from Chicago food and beverage companies as it reduces the fresh water use and the waste can be converted to biogas which can produce electricity.

IER is a supplier of wastewater treatment chemicals for Chicago to meat and dairy processing manufacturers. Meat and dairy manufacturing wastewater is hard to treat due to its high salinity levels and heavy loading of contaminants.
The wastewater produced has high concentrations of total suspended solids (TSS), chemical oxygen demands (COD), biological oxygen demand (BOD), fats oils and grease (FOG), and nutrients such as nitrogen (including ammonia) and phosphate.

IER is a wastewater treatment chemicals Chicago supplier. Microelectronics and Semiconductor wastewater are difficult to treat because of their strong color, high chemical oxygen demand (COD), high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and heavy metals, resulting in potential contamination of the environment
Removing contaminated metal ions from wastewater is done by raising the pH so it forms insoluble metal hydroxide precipitates. This can be complex and dangerous as some pH levels need to be adjusted quite high in order to form the precipitates.

For winery and brewery production wastewater treatment chemicals, IER can provide your business in Chicago with a safe alternative to caustic soda. Wineries need to maintain low effluent levels, adjust fluctuations in flow and strength and reuse water in the vineyard.
Wastewater from wineries can produce pH, phosphate, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and total suspended solids (TSS), which can skyrocket during the busier months.
IER provides a safe, environmentally-friendly alternative to winery and brewery wastewater treatment by using AMALGAM to help protect your bottom line and preserve the health of your environment for future growth.Find Out More
