Title (EN) METHOD FOR REMOVING MERCURY FROM WASTEWATER AND OTHER LIQUID STREAMS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'ÉLIMINATION DU MERCURE DES EAUX USÉES ET D'AUTRES FLUX DE LIQUIDES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method for reducing the amount of Mercury in a liquid stream, such as an aqueous wastewater or process water stream or a non-aqueous liquid hydrocarbonaceous stream is disclosed wherein the liquid stream is contacted with an effective amount of a Hg-complexing agent, the mercury contaminants in the liquid stream form insoluble complexes with the Hg-complexing agent, then the insoluble complexes are removed from the liquid stream via microfiltration or ultrafiltration techniques including the use of submerged hollow fiber ultrafilters or the like.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé de réduction de la quantité de mercure présente dans un flux de liquide, tel qu'un flux d'eaux usées ou un flux d'eau de traitement ou un flux liquide hydrocarboné non aqueux, consistant à mettre le flux liquide au contact d'une quantité efficace d'un agent complexant du mercure, à transformer les contaminants au mercure dans le flux liquide en complexes insolubles avec l'agent complexant du mercure, puis à éliminer les complexes insolubles du flux liquide via des techniques de microfiltration ou d'ultrafiltration comprenant l'utilisation d'ultrafiltres à fibres creuses immergés ou similaire.
