Tackling Environmental Pollution
The challenge in the industry today is to remain productive while minimizing your operations’ environmental impact. To do this we help you reduce emissions, improve processes for a maximum reuse of water and materials, improve wastewater treatment operations, and comply with increasingly strict regulations.
Air Liquide supplies a range of products, equipment and services for water and wastewater treatment. We supply oxygen and carbon dioxide for common wastewater operational needs such as biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and pH reduction as well as volatile organic compound (VOC) and odor control. Our innovative and efficient solutions help our customers use water resources responsibly while respecting the environment with regards to wastewater effluent. We innovate to develop long-term solutions to safely maximize efficiency and robustness while minimizing costs and complexity.
Air Liquide supplies the gases required for environmental compliance.
Oxygen is used to increase the dissolved oxygen content of wastewater, which results in better biological system health and operability.
Ozone is used in several water and wastewater treatment applications, including disinfection of surface water, color removal, and toxicity reduction (i.e. Contamtinants of Emerging Concerns).
Using carbon dioxide to control the pH of a site's wastewater offers measurable safety and cost advantages over treatment systems that employ toxic and corrosive mineral acids such as sulfuric acid.
Air Liquide supplies industrial gases, custom gas calibration standards and carrier gases including hydrogen, helium and nitrogen.
Air Liquide offers ALPHAGAZ™ brand pure gases engineered to help you accurately test and measure emissions monitoring analyzers.
Combustion results from the reaction of oxygen and combustible molecules like fuel or natural gases. Air is commonly used in most industrial processes.
Oxy-combustion is based on the enrichment of air with pure oxygen to reduce fuel consumption, a decrease that is even more significant if nitrogen is completely eliminated from air. Oxy-combustion also reduces carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions, which are harmful to both humans and the environment.
With proven industry knowledge, we can advise on enhancing performance and efficiency in gas use for treatment of water, air and solid waste.
We rely on our global network of application experts, engineering and research and development teams to provide the optimum solution for a given need.
