Atum Services’ TrueBlue technology uses what it calls “sorption” to treat wastewater. The company’s pretreatment chemistry and proprietary Macro Porous Zeolite (MPZ) absorbant media remove metals and organics from wastewater. This technology is designed to be a direct replacement for hydroxide technology and is said to enable users to reduce chemistry and labor costs, while reducing sludge generation.

According to Atum, water can be 100 percent recycled either in secondary rinses, cooling towers or boilers, or by directly feeding reverse-osmosis or deionized water systems returning the water back to the process, reducing water and sanitary costs.
