Leading The Way In Green Chemistry Using Patented Natural Flocculents

By-product recovery and utilization has been one of the major areas in which Water & Oil Technologies, Inc. has assisted customers to achieve successful liquid/solid separation of their particular process wastestream.

With ever increasing environmental discharge regulations confronting us all, we at Water & Oil Technologies, Inc. have found alternatives to land application and on-site composting of sludges. Natural Flocculents can be successfully used with or without pH adjustment to achieve solids recovery from process waste, thus producing an environmentally cleaner supernatant or subnatant discharge.

Our Natural Flocculents are currently sold to poultry, hog, cattle, cheese, dairy, food, grain, and oil processors for the flocculation of solids for recovery of fats, oils, grease, minerals, and/or proteins. By utilizing our AAFCO and FDA approved Natural Flocculents, the recovered fats, oils, grease, minerals, and/or proteins can be sold for animal feed ingredients, fertilizer or used in fuel components.

Recovery Benefits of Natural Flocculents

  • FDA and AAFCO approved for use in animal and poultry feeds, whereas acrylamides and polycrylamides (synthetic polymers made from monomers) are not.
  • Can usually be used without the aid of acid or caustic to achieve flocculation of solids from process waste.
  • Compatible with acids or caustic if so desired to be used to obtain liquid/solid separation.
  • Can be used alone or in conjunction with coagulants to recover solids containing fats, oil, grease, minerals and/or proteins.
  • Can be used to treat solids containing phosphates and nitrates.
  • Totally biodegradable which make their use environmentally acceptable.
