Liquid Waste Management With Recyc PHP’s Reclaimed Materials

There are a variety of technologies used to process liquid waste. However, specific needs don’t always justify the acquisition of these technologies. For these situations Recyc PHP provides the use of its absorbent pellets or its recycled sodium polyacrylate which gelled aqueous fluids to facilitate transportation and landfills of such waste.

Usage Examples

  • Absorption of overflow due to equipment failure during maintenance or after a downpour (municipal, industries, mines)
  • Absorption of residual water sludge for small sewage treatment plants that do not have the volume to justify the acquisition of the processing technology
  • Absorption of surplus liquid from process, or process releases
  • Absorption of water used during exploration drilling (mining, oil, gas)

Industries currently facing this problem use discarded materials such as sawdust. However, Recyc PHP’s have a much higher absorption rate.

Criteria to consider in the use of absorption products:

  • Cost
  • Absorption ratio
  • Availability
  • Storage and handling costs
  • Transportation costs and landfill once filled with water

Benefits of Using Sodium Polyacrylate

  • Excellent absorption rate, more than 150 times its weight in water
  • Easier storage and manipulation – also see water soluble pouch for small volume needs
  • Best cost per liter of water absorbed

Benefits in Using Absorbent Pellets

  • Good absorption rate
  • Less impact of sodium chloride on the absorption rate
  • Offers a compaction rate (when the % of solids is too low, some landfills request that the buried material can withstand a certain weight without crashing. Sodium polyacrylate alone does not have this feature)
  • May incorporate neutralizing agents during the production of the pellets (basic agents to neutralize an acid product and vice versa)

About Recyc PHP

Since 2006, Recyc PHP Inc. has specialized in recycling industrial rejects of personal hygiene products (baby diapers, adult incontinence briefs or feminine hygiene pads) in order to separate their components into fluff pulp, super absorbent polymers (sodium polyacrylate) and plastic films. The plant, located in Drummondville, Quebec, Canada, export products around the world from the Port of Montreal.
