Treat hydrogen sulfide and other hazardous chemicals cost-effectively

Ultra-S3 is an effective oxidizing system that has been used successfully in the United States and other countries for more than a decade. It has been used in landfills, wastewater treatment facilities, wastewater retention ponds, food processing plants, chemical plants, paper mills, and sewage lines. It is cost-effective and will treat many recalcitrant chemicals such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S), benzene, methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE), toluene, trichloroethylene, and many others.

Why Ultra-S3?

+ Efficient – rapid reaction that results in oxidation of contaminants to primarily CO2 and H2O.
+ Easy – requires minimal capital infrastructure investment
+ Cost-effective – compares favorably to other competitive treatment solutions on the market
+ Safe – classified as non-hazardous under the US Toxic Substance Control Act of 1976 (TSCA)
+ Return on Investment (ROI) – prolongs infrastructure
+ Targeted – Ultra-S3 targets problem compounds without destroying environmentally beneficial microbes

How does it work?

  1. An oxidant, generally hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and the Ultra-S3 are injected separately into waste stream or over target area.
  2. When combined with an oxidant, Ultra-S3 produces hydroxyl radicals that are capable of treating a variety of recalcitrant organic compounds.
  3. Hydroxyl radicals are highly efficient oxidizers. These hydroxyl radicals break down difficult chemical bonds to remediate organic compounds to non-detectable levels.

A Proven Process – Case Study

Ultra-S3 and its chemical components have been submitted to and listed with the Toxic Substance Control Act of 1976 (TSCA) and is classified as non-hazardous without any risk flags.

One Northern California wastewater treatment plant used Ultra-S3 to eliminate a serious hydrogen sulfide (H2S) problem. Although H2S is pungent in low concentrations, it paralyzes the olfactory nerve at levels above 100 ppm to render workers oblivious to the danger. The wastewater in this plant had hydrogen sulfide levels of 7–10 ppm, which produced concentrations in the sewer air averaging 102 ppm and peaking at 250 ppm. The objective of the S3 treatment was to reduce the H2S concentration in the air to an acceptable level (less than 10 ppm).

The end result? Ultra-S3 reduced the hydrogen sulfide concentration in the air to less than 1 ppm with only 3 minutes of contact time.
