In order to eliminate pharmaceutical product residues in waste water from hospitals, John Cockerill Environment has developed Medix®, a technology which exclusively makes use of biological degradation of micro-pollutants which are noxious for the environment.
How does Medix® work?
The 100% biological Medix® technology uses the enzyme capacities of micro-organisms. By encouraging their growth end their activity under certain conditions, we arrive at degradation via the biological route of a wide range of pharmaceutical residues. Breaking the concentration down into micro-pollutants between entry and exit achieves an overall yield of 85%.
This technology thus stands out for:
its high performance level;
its biological procedure ;
its low energy consumption ;
All of this is based on the unique know-how which characterizes John Cockerill solutions.
To whom is Medix® addressed?
Medix® is a solution suited to all volumes and compositions of reject materials. With a view to optimal integration, we have developed different architectural structures. Medix® can equally well be installed outside s inside.
Our solution provides our clients with numerous advantages:
purification of macro and micro pollutants;
commitment to society ;
reduction of the environmental footprint;
better use of utilities: high technology.
