Industrial contractors utilize superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) in wastewater treatment, horizontal directional drilling (HDD), remediation, and other industrial sectors to simplify the solidification of challenging liquid waste streams. SAPs feature the highest absorbency of any solidification technology, allowing contractors to process more sludge with less reagent, minimizing the quantity of material mixed into the waste, time spent blending reagent, and the disposal weight of the solidified waste.

Sludge, a viscous mixture of liquid and solid components, is generated by essentially all industrial and municipal wastewater treatment facilities. When sludge must be periodically removed in order for plant maintenance crews to conduct repairs on process equipment and concrete holding basins, superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) are the safest, fastest, and most efficient choice to convert wet sludge to dry stackable solids.

Using Superabsorbent Polymers To Reduce Dredged Sediment Management Costs, Time, and Environmental Impacts
Dredging of saturated sediments from waterways, lakes, and storm water ponds generates massive quantities of waste material that require costly and time-consuming management practices, such as dewatering, solidification, transportation, and off-site disposal. If solidification of saturated sediments, followed by transportation and disposal, are parts of the work plan at your site, superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) can help to reduce your budget as well as time on-site, and they can minimize environmental risks.
