Phenol removal from water requires a specialised tertiary process like Nyex™ Rosalox which localises the benzene contaminant onto the surface of a patented adsorbent media.

The NyexT™ process is really effective in removal of phenol from wastewater – see CASE STUDY for removal figures. The way it works is that firstly the wastewater percolates though our Nyex media. The contaminants are attracted to the media and adsorb to its surface. Next the contaminant is completely mineralised using a low electrical current, which is passed through the bed.

One key benefit of the NyexT™ system is that the adsorbent media regenerates inside the system. This means that there is no waste to dispose of. Also the treatment does not need to be interrupted for renewal, like with activated carbon. This means that these harmful compounds can be removed onsite with very little maintenance in comparison to alternative treatment processes. Once the phenol is removed from wastewater, the water is suitable to be reused in-process or for other uses around the facility.

Phenol Removal by Nyex™

Phenol removal from water requires a specialised tertiary process like Nyex™ Rosalox which localises the benzene contaminant onto the surface of a patented adsorbent media. A low electrical current is applied to the media bed which oxidises the organic chemical, leaving the clean water to flow from the system. Phenol removal using NyexTM ensures that the water is safe for reuse or compliant for discharge to the sewer or environment.

Phenol Removal by Adsorption and Oxidation

This is the way that the Nyex™ system works. One key benefit of the Nyex™ system is that the adsorbent media used in this process is simultaneously regenerated inside the system. So, there is very little maintenance and operating cost to consider in comparison with activated carbon. Phenol removal by adsorption in this case is much more efficient and lower maintenance, with lower operational costs as the only input required is electricity to run the Nyex™ system.
