Solving Caustic Disposal Problems for 50 Years

January 11, 2020

While caustic regeneration is an effective way of minimizing the costs and hazards of spent caustic disposal, it’s not always an option. Sometimes, refiners must discharge spent caustic into their effluent water, which can adversely affect fish and aquatic populations. For more than 50 years, Merichem® has provided economical on-site oxidation and neutralization solutions to substantially lower concentrations of sulfide, mercaptide, organic acid, BOD, COD, and the costs associated with them. We can also sell those spent caustics to other companies for beneficial reuse. Learn more about those options and the factors to consider.
