Many large companies look to industrial water treatment chemical suppliers for their wastewater treatment solutions, without knowing that eco-friendly solutions now exist. Rather than using chemicals to treat water, options now exist which allow water to be treated using electrochemical oxidation with no chemical dosing.
Water Treatment for the Chemical Industry
Benefits of a Nyex water treatment process
The unique Nyex™-a technology uses adsorption to localise pollutants at low and trace levels which are often missed by generic wastewater treatment methods. It then oxidises the impurities to H₂O, H₂ and CO₂.
If your existing tertiary water treatment is not performing then we might be able to help. We remove organic compounds to very low levels due to our unique combination of adsorption and oxidation.
Nyex water treatment systems are extremely effective at breaking down and removing solvents and BTEX chemicals so are particularly suited to the specialty chemical industry.
Our Nyex water treatment processes have been designed to tackle the wastewater issues faced by the fine and specialty chemical sector, with these key benefits:
Safer and less maintenance
No chemical dosing means less COSHH compliance and operator time. No secondary waste streams means no need to stop production whilst sludge is removed and incinerated.
Targeted water treatment to low levels
Targeted treatment of wastewater to remove toxic, mutagenic, carcinogenic or non-biodegradable contaminants.
Unique combination of adsorption and electrochemical oxidation in Nyex process means less energy is used to reduce organic compounds from water.
Modular, scalable design
Nyex water treatment systems are modular and can be turned on and off according to demand, meeting your loadings. Particularly suited to batch processing of specialty chemicals. Further modules can be added based on manufacturing activity, ensuring the longevity of your investment.
Increased efficiencies and reliability
Our Nyex systems can be retrofitted into existing treatment trains to remove the final problematic compounds which traditional treatment systems often leave behind. Improve efficiencies and reliability of existing treatment processes by removing fouling organics and hazardous organic chemicals at key points in the chain.
The treatment system is also unaffected by toxins or high temperatures and emits no odour. This means the system will fit easily into your manufacturing environment. Alternatively, systems can be positioned externally to allow the expansion of your business activities inside the plant to take priority.
Eco friendly water treatment
No chemical dosing and no waste products – eco friendly. A major asset in the plan to reuse water, reducing costs and improving CSR.
Industrial wastewater treatment services for chemical manufacturers
Nyex is particularly suited to industrial wastewater treatment for the specialty chemical sector for many reasons. Below are a few of our services for this sector.
Removal of recalcitrant organic compounds
Due to the diverse nature of intermediates used in the manufacturing of chemicals, wastewater streams vary significantly in terms of composition. The intermediates are often toxic, mutagenic, carcinogenic or non-biodegradable and chemicals can be produced on a commercial scale from kilograms to multi-tonnes.
This variation of wastewater composition and volume combined with strict effluent permits and extreme operating conditions present unique challenges for wastewater treatment.

Avoiding the high costs of incineration
The use of incineration as a waste management strategy is usually a last resort. Particularly for wastewater having low calorific value and containing hazardous contaminants, incineration is an unnecessarily expensive and CO2 intensive process.
Arvia can provide treatment solutions to remove hazardous contaminants from wastewater streams at a fraction of the cost of incineration, allowing safe discharge to sewer or environment. These systems typically operate in a batch process allowing compliance monitoring before discharge. This enables significant savings in operational and administrative costs compared to incineration.
