Do you want to see the very same poisonous gas ISIS uses as a chemical weapon in YOUR neighborhood?
Sorry for a harsh attention gathering title here. The fact of the matter is that chlorine gas is used as a chemical weapon these days in Middle East primarily because it’s the most abundant method to treat water, and can very easily be stolen and “weaponized”. Even more frightening, many water treatment plants in the United States use chlorine gas in great abundance with thousands of tons stored on location at all times.
MIOX is pleased to announce that we have been selected as the preferred technology to replace chlorine gas used in the final disinfection of wastewater from the treatment plant in Tuxtla City, Mexico which is operated by TICSA. In conjunction with Veolia Mexico, the MIOX on-site sodium hypochlorite chlorine generator system was chosen over competing technologies to improve safety at the facility.
The Tuxtla City wastewater plant is surrounded by residential neighborhoods and concerns over long-term safety drove TICSA to select a safer solution that was also economical. The ability to use salt to generate chlorine avoids transporting hazardous chemicals through the City on the way to the plant. The system should be operating by the summer of 2015.
The project scope includes two MIOX RIO H4 on-site generators. This equipment produces up to 800 pounds per day sodium hypochlorite and will disinfect wastewater for over 500,000 residents in Tuxtla City, Mexico. MIOX sodium hypochlorite generators are designed to produce the absolute lowest cost chlorine available on the market. Many facilities are turning to MIOX HYPO systems for safety, economic, and process benefits.

Ranging from small communities to large cities with more than 10 million people, water treatment facilities are turning to MIOX chemistries for their drinking water disinfection because the proven disinfectant improves the quality and safety of drinking water while also providing significant economic savings. Conventional treatment processes consume a lot of fuel and release harmful carbon emissions. As such, there is a rising demand in the development of improved and/or new disinfection technologies.
MIOX offers a comprehensive line of on-site chemical generators which combine salt, water and power to generate cost-effective water disinfectants on site. Whether you need the lowest cost and most reliable sodium hypochlorite (HYPO) on the market, maximum disinfection using our proprietary Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS), or a combination of on-site generated aqueous chlorine and ultraviolet light (Cl2/UV) through our new Integrated Advanced Oxidation (iAO) technology, MIOX can provide a wide range of solutions for your water treatment needs.
The Aerojet Rocketdyne site for Groundwater Remediation in California was able to save up to 75% on chemical costs and improve worker safety by switching to MIOX’s iAO technology. To learn more, download the Case Study by clicking here.
About SIWW The Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) is the global platform to share and co-create innovative water solutions. Stakeholders from the global water industry gather at SIWW to share business opportunities and showcase the latest water technologies. SIWW is part of the strategic program of the Singapore Government to grow the water industry and develop water technologies.
The substitution of conventional biocide treatments with MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) chemical generator has resulted in a biocidal cooling tower water treatment process that costs less and is more effective than isothiazoline and bromine biocides. The positive results were documented from an installation at a leading consumer goods manufacturer in France.
Cooling tower water treatment system
The installation of MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) has been shown to be as effective as utilizing isothiazoline compounds and organic biocides while significantly reducing operation costs. Water analysis and a real-time ATP (adenosine triphosphate) test showed positive impact to the cooling water when the biocical treatment was changed to MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS). Also the facility observed low ATP rates with a decreasing trend since the installation of the RIO Zuni systems.
MIOX technology helped the facility meet its objectives of:
1) Microbiological Control: The new treatment process utilizing MOS is as effective as the previous treatment process (isothiazoline & bromine) at controlling bacterial growth.
2) Safety & Simplicity: On-site chemical generation eliminated the manipulation of up to 5,500 lb/year biocidal products from filling meters and/or manual injection. Furthermore, the facility was able to completely eliminate the transportation, storage and handling of delivered chemicals and their containers.
3) Economic Benefits: Lower operating costs from removing the purchase of delivered biocidal products and switching to on-site generation which utilizes only salt, water and electricity.
