Reactive Separations
Converting target chemicals for easy removal from process streams

Reactive separations is based on the assumption that a separation is very difficult and that conversion of the target chemical species to something else makes it much easier to separate from the mixture.  We developed enhanced reactive separations that can be seen at our other website (so as to not confuse our technology for destroying methyl bromide).

Some applications for the removal of Carbon Dioxide for sequestration, and to prevent global warming, use reactive separations to permenantly convert the carbon dioxide to a carbonate and thus render it impossible to further warm the planet.  We use the same general approach but not the same technology.

Reactive separations applied with Value Recovery's technology have been shown to be effective at removing cyanide from gold mine tailings streams.  The removal of phenols, acrylates and methacrylates encountered in chemical industry waste streams are other major applications.

In these other applications, we use proprietary  catalysis technology to target a specific chemical species and convert it into something more desirable or destroy it.   Benefits of this technology for customers are:

A.       Generation of new revenue from the creation of a saleable product out of previously  wasted byproducts.

B.      Cost avoidance from not having to incinerate organic wastes that contain halogens (chlorine, bromine, or iodine) or are highly water soluble organic anions and the high environmental cost due to incineration.


Please note that our methyl bromide scrubbing systems do not use PTC.  These systems use different technology, still under the umbrella of reactive separations, and were developed as a direct result of our knowledge and experience in nucleophillic substitution reactions.
