Enhanced Ion-Exchange Resin for Ammonia Nitrogen

There is a strong demand for technologies that can provide a cost-effective solution for removal of ammonia nitrogen from wastewater. However, current solutions are not able to meet the increasingly stringent requirements of ammonia nitrogen content in wastewater in a cost-effective manner.

The solution provided by intellectual property from two of 360ip’s Partners employs a proprietary technique to produce an ion-exchange resin with increased ammonia nitrogen adsorption capacity. The ion-exchange resin can be regenerated easily to be reused multiple times.

Compared to existing methods, the invention has the following advantages:

High adsorption capacity and ammonia nitrogen selectivity

Convenient regeneration of the adsorbent material

Concentration of ammonia in the wastewater can be easily controlled

Environmentally friendly since no sludge is produced
