Implementation Stories

Capterall® by Prayon
Implemented by Solvay in Tavax (France) in 2016

Solvay implemented the solution at its industrial platform in Tavaux to capture fluorine and zinc from the plant's wastewater. They needed a system that could work in a wide range of pH to facilitate the operability of the water treatment and form an inert waste that could be recycled. In order to ensure the circularity of the solution, Solvay is now working with PRAYON, another chemicals company to reintegrate the fluorine-loaded Capterall as a raw material in their production and thus ensure the manufacture of new phosphate and fluorine salts.

Result

Enabled increase in water treatment capacity while respecting discharge standards
