RE: Request



In the P2 world you should perhaps consider if it is necessary to
generate the hypochlorite in the first place. Not being an engineer I
have no direct experience in this industry. However, sometimes that is
beneficial. Could you modify the system so that the Cl2 gas generated
can be collected, purified and compressed for resale? It is still used
by many facilities (Municipal Waste Treatment Plants, swimming pools,
water treatment plants, etc.) as a disinfectant. For that matter if the
process is modifiable, you could give the Cl2 away. The company may
still be saving money by not generating the hypochlorite waste in the
first place.
