IES have developed and patented a technology for sulphate removal from wastewater. The technology
was researched and successfully developed, having received a DTI Grant for Research and Development funding award from One North East.
The technology was successfully tried at the Royal Mint and a full scale plant at Rimex Metals (UK) Ltd. The technology is recognised as best available technology and is included as an emerging technology in the European Commission brief.
Benefits of Sulphate Technology include:
Rimex Metals (UK) Ltd produce surface finishes on stainless steel and other metals.
"The system from IES solved the problem of sulphates in our effluent. This has allowed Rimex Metals to discharge to sewer meeting our consent to discharge and saving the cost of external tankers. "
