Session 4: Advancements in Automotive Finishing
This presentation will discuss the true fundamentals of reductive reactions utilizing ORP as well as hydroxide insolubility & sulfide insolubility that pertains to the metals of interest in the influent to the waste water treatment process. The audience will benefit from understanding such fundamentals as charge neutralization, stoichiometric charts as well as understanding of charge density & molecular weight of the anionic flocculants needed in today's waste streams.
Managing Water Usage / Waste Management Minimization
In the metal finishing world many suppliers have had to reformulate the finished product needed in the surface finishing facility, because they cannot get adequate supply of chemistry that has worked for years - due to the supply chain shortage. The reformulation of these chemistries has caused problems in waste water treatment. The specialty chemical suppliers have had to use different surfactants, chelants, brighteners & mineral sequestrants. This fact has caused the surface finishing facilities to change coagulants, flocculants & precipitants.
