Glyphosate removal from water

Glyphosate can be difficult to remove from water through conventional treatment methods such as activated carbon and reverse osmosis. However, a more eco-friendly and cost effective solotuion to remove the hazardous herbicide is our Nyex Rosalox system. Our technology combines adsorption and oxidation which has been proven effective in glyphosate removal from water.

What we achieved

Our Nyex Rosalox system successfully removed Glyphosate down to trace levels.

Other ways to remove glyphosate from water

As discussed, aside from our Nyex Rosalox, there are a few methods that can be used for glyphosate removal from water. None of these methods are without their down sides. Below are the details.

Ozone for glyphosate removal from water

Another potential solution is the use of ozone. Ozone is a powerful oxidizing agent that can break down organic compounds, including glyphosate, into smaller, less harmful molecules. By bubbling ozone through the water, the glyphosate undergoes a chemical transformation and becomes less toxic. Ozone treatment needs careful monitoring and control to fully break down glyphosate and avoid making harmful byproducts.

Also, ozone itself is very dangerous and difficult to manage.

RO for glyphosate removal from water

Reverse osmosis (RO) is another effective method for removing glyphosate from water. This process involves passing the water through a series of fine membranes that can effectively filter out the glyphosate molecules.

However, one drawback of RO is the production of a concentrated reject stream that contains a thick toxic sludge. Proper disposal of this sludge can be costly and poses its own environmental challenges. Therefore, while RO is effective at removing glyphosate, it is important to consider the overall environmental impact of the process.
