Calcium Polysulfide has been in use for more than a century, but primarily for agricultural applications. Today, it is routinely used for effective treatment of heavy metals in soil, groundwater and various waste streams.
Remotox® is a calcium polysulfide based liquid that consists of multiple sulfur compounds, which strongly bond to heavy metals in water. The metal sulfides formed have a very low solubility and persist as stable solids, which allows for a more environmentally sound disposal.

Chromium, Zinc, Copper, Lead, Cadmium, Mercury and Arsenic are among the most common metal contaminants found on clean-up sites. Remotox® precipitates these highly soluble metals as less soluble, less toxic metal sulfides. Hexavalent chromium is reduced to trivalent state, which then precipitates as chromium hydroxide.
Remotox® for the removal of a wide range of heavy metals, including arsenic, chromium, mercury, cadmium, lead, selenium and other potentially harmful compounds commonly found in laboratory waste streams. Reducing hazardous waste on site to the minimum quantity can save transportation and disposal cost.
Remotox® has proven to remove high levels of mercury from scrubber solutions preventing re-emissions. Additionally, it has proven to capture and stabilize lead, copper, thallium, cadmium, nickel, zinc, iron, silver and other metals commonly found in power plant waste and scrubber wastewater.
