Rossdorf, Germany:-An international pharmaceutical company has commissioned German water treatment specialist EnviroChemie to make its new site in China pollution-free.

EnviroChemie is designing and building a wastewater treatment plant with a hydraulic capacity of 20 m³/d, for the new extended production site for pharmaceutical substances in Shanghai.The plant is due for completion by December 31, 2014.

The wastewater from production will be treated in batch mode using EnviroChemie’s unique Envochem® DOX physico-chemical water treatment processes, so that it can be returned indirectly to the environment.

Automatic advantage

The residues of the active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) are removed from the wastewater through chemical oxidation, using hydrogen peroxide and ultraviolet light.

The advantages of the EnviroChemie plant are automatic plant operation plusminimal amounts of residual substances that require final disposal.
EnviroChemie was able to provide the client with a single point of contact liaison, from laboratory trials through to engineering and plant construction.
