  • Patent number: 9181112
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for treating coal gasification wastewater containing selenium and ions of a metal nobler than titanium eluted from a noble metal catalyst in a catalytic wet oxidation treatment using the noble metal catalyst, the method includes a pretreatment process removing the ions of the metal nobler than titanium and a selenium reduction process contacting the coal gasification wastewater with a mixture of metallic titanium and a simple metal baser than metallic titanium whereby a portion of the simple metal baser than metallic titanium is eluted, and the selenium in the coal gasification wastewater becomes reduced.

  • Publication number: 20120305489
    Abstract: Selenium-containing water containing ions of a metal which is nobler than titanium and which is a coexisting substance is stably and efficiently treated. A pretreatment of removing ions of the metal nobler than titanium from the selenium-containing water is performed prior to the reduction treatment of selenium with the mixture of metallic titanium and the simple metal baser than titanium. In a reduction treatment step of selenium, noble metal ions in the selenium-containing water are reduced on the surfaces of particles of metallic titanium in a titanium/base metal mixture to form precipitates, which adhere to the surfaces of the metallic titanium particles, resulting in the decrease in efficiency of a reduction reaction. This problem can be solved in such a manner that the noble metal ions are removed prior to the reduction treatment of selenium.

  • Patent number: 8182697
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for treating selenium-containing wastewater, in which wastewater containing hexavalent selenium is subjected to reduction treatment, selenium can be effectively removed at a small amount of metal leached, and, preferably, sludge produced during treatment is white, thereby facilitating the disposal of the sludge. The selenium-containing wastewater is brought into contact with an alloy or a mixture of metallic titanium and a first metal other than metallic titanium to partially leach the first metal, thereby subjecting selenium in the wastewater to reduction treatment.
