TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian researchers at Islamic Azad University, Science and Research Department, have designed a system for waste water treatment, using nano-material.
The system can remove oil, fat, organic pollutants, particles, microbes, heavy metals and other pollutants from water and waste water.
Dr. Saeed Bazgir, the director of the project and a faculty member of Polymer Engineering Department of the University said the system includes different physical and chemical treatment parts.
The chemical treatment section uses new materials designed by Iranian researchers.
The materials can separate pollutants from water in less than 30 seconds, he said, adding the method also uses nano-particles absorption columns and nano-fiber microfiltration.
The system is of high speed, efficiency and is economical. It occupies less space and can be used for any kind of water waste and pollutants.
The newly-designed tool can be used for water treatment in different industries, including oil and gas, refineries, metal industries, chemical processing units, textile and foodstuff industries, landfill leachate, boilers in power plants, water processing units of firms, car wash, transportation and shipping industries.
