Bromine can be recovered from two sources
- From Sea Bitterns
- From Industrial effluents
BVR offers turnkey projects for the recovery of Bromine from both the aforesaid sources.
Two processes are generally adopted for the recovery of Bromine from Sea/ Salt Bittern as mentioned below:
Steaming Out Process (Hot Process)
The process is also known as “Hot Process” because chlorination of bittern is done with simultaneous steam blowing by means of live steam to heat the bittern to near its boiling point to set free the finished product Bromine.
Air Blowing Process (Cold Process)
This process is known as “Cold Process” because the finished product Bromine is set free from bittern by chlorination and air blowing under cold conditions.
