Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Poly Aluminum Chloride Market 2018-2022
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global poly aluminum chloride market: Airedale Chemical, Feralco AB, GEO, Grasim, Gujarat Alkalies and Chemicals, and Hengyang Jianheng Industry Development.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is stringent government regulations on treatment of water effluents. The US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) implements regulations on the water treatment and formulates guidelines for sewage water and wastewater treatment. Federal clean water and safe drinking water laws and municipal wastewater treatment guidelines have been implemented by the EPA.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing use of poly aluminum chloride as a substitute for alum. Earlier, alum was used for wastewater and sewage water treatment. The low cost of this product was one of the major factors for its popular use in wastewater treatment applications. However, it has certain disadvantages and is thus replaced by poly aluminum chloride-based coagulants.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is increasing cost of storage. Poly aluminum chloride is highly soluble in water both in powdered and solid states. Powdered poly aluminum chloride exhibits high sensitivity to moisture. Though it is non-flammable, it is highly recommended to keep the material tightly packed in polythene bags when stored in small quantities. Poly aluminum chloride reacts with metals and certain chemicals and releases flammable gases such as hydrogen. Thus, it is tightly stored in containers and polythene bags to avoid contact with aluminum and alloys, zinc, carbon, steel, bases, chlorides, sulfites, and hypochlorite.
