What is it about?

The paper shows how chlorate, which is an environmental toxin, can be removed from the chlor-alkali plant brine stream. Doing this allows more brine to be recirculated within the process, and reduces the release of chlorate to the environment. This improves the conversion efficiency of the chlor-alkali plant while protecting the environment.

Why is it important?

This research shows chlor-alkali plant operators how they may implement steps to improve their plant efficiency while reducing the release of pollution from their facility


When I started this research, I was unaware of the toxic nature of chlorate. It is only upon embarking on this research that I became aware of its toxicity. That made it more imperative that the chlorate has to be removed and not just released to the environment. I believe that there are many plant operators who are like me and are blissfully unaware of the nature of the toxicity of the pollutant being released from their facility.
