Applications

The versatility of the HYK technology allows for endless applications, including wastewater treatment, drinking water treatment, and reuse.

Wastewater treatment

Elimination and reduction of ammonium, nitrates, sulphides, cyanides, COD, among others, from industrial water and complex mains water according to customer requirements

  • Wastewater leachate treatment


  • Wastewater with a high ammonium content from waste managers and other industries

  • 
Wastewater with a high nitrate content from chemical polishing


  • Wastewater from desulphurisation processes in thermal power stations

  • Waste from the pharmaceutical, fine chemical, cosmetic, and other industries, containing refractory organic matter or matter with poor degradability


Drinking water treatment

Elimination and reduction of ammonium, nitrates, sulphides, cyanides, COD, among others, from drinking or reuse water according to current regulations

  • Purification of well-catchment water

  • Purification of water in rural areas

  • Cleaning and reusing of industrial waters

  • 
Among other possible applications
