Wastewater Treatment

WaMag products are non-hazardous, environmentally-friendly, safe and cost-effective treatment options for alkalinity addition and pH adjustment of waste streams.

WaMag H magnesium hydroxide slurry’s minimal requirements for safe handling, storage and use make it the smart choice for wastewater treatment versus caustic soda or lime. WaMag greatly reduces sludge compared to lime-treated sulfate systems and caustic treated heavy metal systems for reduced disposal costs. In addition, WaMag H Magnesium Hydroxide buffers to a maximum pH of 9 in most wastewater streams, making

biomass damaging pH excursions less likely. (Lime and caustic soda can easily reach a pH of 12 and 14 respectively). WaMag H magnesium hydroxide slurry offers price stability relative to historical caustic soda price volatility.
