Chemicals & Petro-Chemicals
Chemicals and Petrochemicals can be defined as a large group of waste water from chemicals, petroleum and natural gas and used for a variety of chemical purposes. Chemicals and Petrochemical plants are in the business of developing substances such as hydrogen, carbon monoxide, synthesis gases, chemicals such as ethylene and its derivatives, benzene and toluene to name a few.
Wastewater treatment in Chemicals and petroleum refineries is a complex process, with demanding environmental management challenges as byproducts can be both volatile and toxic. Petrochemical wastewater often requires a combination of treatment methods to remove oil and other contaminants before discharge. Issues such as groundwater contamination; aromatics; oil, grease and organic removal, and VOC control have to be addressed in order to comply with environmental regulations and maintain a good customer image.
An increased understanding of requirements of the petrochemical end-user is gaining importance as industry needs change due to stricter regulation and environmental laws. It’s important equipment manufacturers keep abreast of these requirements to capitalize on future opportunities. End-users are forced to become more aware of what types of waste they’re creating and discharging, and how they can adjust their current treatment equipment to meet new demands.
We at Fluid Sep Technologies provide different technologies like neutralization, coagulation/flocculation, floatation/sedimentation/filtration, clarification and biodegradation (e.g., aerated lagoon, rotating biological contactor and activated sludge). A final polishing step using filtration, ozonation, activated carbon, or chemical treatment and Membrane system to reuse, recycle the waste water in to pure water for process.
