Value Proposition: Current technology for removing Selenium from power plant waste water uses bio reactors. These bio reactors are capital intensive, have high annual operating costs, are operationally delicate and can produce a hazardous waste (the bodies of the dead bio organisms) as a by product.
CCT’s NMX™ technology overcomes the disadvantages of bioreactors. The absorbtion reactor is inherently simpler and less capital intensive (approximately 50-70% less capital). Operating costs are the cost of the absorbent itself, which is about 10-20% per year less than for a bioreactor. And the spent absorbent has passed the EPA’s Toxic Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP), which means it can be safely, legally and inexpensively disposed of in a traditional landfill.
