|Wheston, Stephen (2002) The use of electrodialysis in the recovery of ammonium nitrate from the aqueous waste stream arising from fertilizer manufacturing. M. Sc., Institute of Technology, Sligo.
|This dissertation assesses the use of Electrodialysis in the recovery of ammonium nitrate
from the aqueous waste stream arising from fertilizer manufacturing. The dissertation is
centred on the results of a trial plant that was operated at the Irish Fertilizer Industries Arklow
plant. To give a background to the project, a brief introduction to IFI Arklow is included,
describing the activities carried out on site. Following this, an account of the scope of the
effluent problem at the Arklow plant, including the source of the contaminated effluent is
presented. Different technologies that have been examined and trialled are discussed. Any
modifications and repairs that have been made or will in the future need to be made to the
Electrodialysis plant are discussed, as well as general operation of the trial plant. The main
body of the text includes a presentation and interpretation of the data. The conclusion and
discussion assesses the suitability of Electrodialysis in the given application and also
describes future studies and potential modifications to the plant.
It should be noted that points raised and conclusions drawn are for the purposes of the
dissertation, as an academic exercise. As such, these conclusions are personal, and are made
based on the information uncovered during research. They are not to be taken as representing
the views of IFI Arklow.
