AMP launches arsenic removal media

The high capacity makes the application suitable for use in MOCVD growth where other adsorbent materials are impractical
An Oklahoma based startup, Associated Material Processing, LLC, has developed a proprietary arsenic removal media for industrial waste water remediation.

Oklahoma State University Professor Allen Apblett, invented the new polymeric adsorbent media, AMP-25, with unprecedented affinity for arsenic.

AMP-25’s capacity for arsenic can reach up to 150 mg As/g of the adsorbent, which is almost an order of magnitude higher than conventional arsenic adsorbents. This high capacity makes it suitable for use in applications where other adsorbent materials are impractical.

What's more, with its high capacity, the selectivity for arsenic is high with the product able to reduce arsenic from 100 ppm to below detection limits (0.0005 ppm) in a single batch contact. Also, it is not significantly affected by the presence of other ions. 

Applications for AMP-25 involve removal of arsenic from GaAs processing waste, mining operations and metal finishing facilities.

Associated Material Processing will display its new product at CS Mantech in New Orleans, May 13th to 16th, 2013.

Associated Material Processing, LLC (AMP) is a chemical technology company with innovative solutions to remediate hazardous and unwanted chemicals.

Oklahoma based AMP was launched by Cowboy Technologies, LLC in November 2011 to commercialise Apblett’s invention. AMP has developed proprietary arsenic adsorption products, AMP-25 for semiconductor industry application dand AMP-35 for drinking water treatment.
