Using Water to Replace Organic Solvents: Switchable Water
March 28, 2013
A simple solution of salt and water can break emulsions and separate organic solutes. However, the energy required to remove the water of these solvents is very high and makes purifying the waste water more expensive. Join Dr. Philip Jessop, Technical Director of GreenCentre Canada for a discussion on aqueous solutions of switchable ionic strength and several of their many applications

- What additive is contained in “switchable water” and how it works
- How the additive can be changed depending on the application
- How “switchable water” can be used to solve problems in mining, wastewater treatment, desalination, catalysis, and other applications.
