Watch Your Waste Disposal Costs Evaporate

Veolia’s latest range of EVALED™ evaporators helps cosmetics and pharmaceuticals manufacturers to save money on waste
Water Technologies UK has introduced an extended range of the highly successful
EVALED™ evaporators for smaller cosmetics and
pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities that currently dispose of liquid wastes
offsite. The EVALED PC series of heat pump vacuum evaporators reduces
wastewater disposal costs and offers opportunities for recovering raw materials
including APIs, disinfectants, proteins and glycols as well as recycling water.
disposal of wastes containing APIs and similar ingredients is expensive, often
involving incineration or complex chemical treatment. Evaporation using EVALED
PC evaporators is a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative that
can reduce the waste volume by up to 90% giving a significant cost saving.
EVALED PC evaporators operate under vacuum, water boils in the range of
30-40°C. The resulting low temperature evaporation means that it is possible to
recover heat sensitive materials from wastes and, with a typical electrical
consumption of only 0.15 kWh per litre of distillate, the carbon footprint is
small. The EVALED PC range is available in two technological options. The PC F
Series uses forced circulation for the highest distillate quality with minimum
capital and operating costs for capacities up to 24,000 litres per day. The PC
R Series, with capacities up to 2,000 litres per day, uses scraped film
technology to achieve high concentrations, minimising the volume of waste for
disposal, even with high viscosity or foaming wastes.
of the applications for evaporation is the recovery of a free base alkaloid
API. The manufacturing facility treats the waste alkaloid solution in an EVALED
PC R500 to produce 500 litres per day of aqueous condensate that can be
discharged or recycled, and a concentrated stream containing the alkaloid that
is then purified for recycling as a pharmaceutical grade API.
