Solution

ET2500
Envotherm 's new ET2500 concentrates now emulsions so that 90-93 % distilled water discharged to public recipient and the remaining 7-10% of concentrate can be sold to cement factories or recycling. The concentrate contains 40-60 % oil. The distillate has an oil content of < 10 ppm which is less than half the emissions requirement . Envotherm 's patented absorber reduces the COD value of the distillate so that no additional emissions costs from the authorities.
