  • Deployment of biokinetic modeling tools to optimize real time biological wastewater process control in the oil refining industry

    Perhaps no industry has more operationally failing wastewater treatment plants than those deployed in the Oil & Petrochemical market segments. These plants have some of the toughest influent contaminant profiles to treat, and suffer from some of the largest ranges of variation in contaminant loadings. The toughest area of wastewater process control in Oil Refining of course lies in the Biological ...

  • Removal of surfactant from industrial wastewaters by coagulation flocculation process

    Surfactants are among the most widely disseminated xenobiotics that contribute significantly to the pollution profile of sewage and wastewaters of all kinds. Among the currently employed chemical unit processes in the treatment of wastewaters, coagulation-flocculation has received considerable attention for yielding high pollutant removal efficiency. Jar-test experiments are employed in order to ...

  • Integrated process control for recirculating cooling water treatment in the coal chemical industry

    This work focused on the integrated process of the recirculating cooling water (RCW) treatment to achieve approximate zero emission in the coal chemical industry. The benefits of fractional and comprehensive RCW treatment were quantified and qualified by using a water and mass balance approach. Limits of cycle of concentrations and some encountered bottlenecks were used to ascertain set target ...

  • Wastewater from Viscose pulping process - Case Study

    In March 2012 HydroThane started a new project in collaboration with the multinational Lenzing AG, the global market leader in the production of man-made high-quality cellulose fibres. The project was intended for the company Lenzing Biocel Paskov (LBP) located in Czech Republic, which recently changed their technology to produce viscose pulp instead of paper. With this production change also ...

  • Controlling Pharmaceutical Coating & Drying Process Emissions

    Capturing and destroying harmful emissions from pharmaceutical processes can be challenging. It’s not because the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are difficult to destroy using catalytic or thermal techniques. It’s because their concentrations can be so high. These process streams raise safety concerns, both when they’re collected in vents and when they reach the final ...

  • Case Study on Water Control in a Rinsing Process

    Introduction The company selected for the study is a privately owned job shop that does rack electroplating of steel and brass plumbing and lighting fixtures with copper, nickel, and chrome. Approximately 10 operators perform the actual plating and buffing of the parts. A waste treatment specialist handles all of the wastewater requiring the necessary pH adjustment, precipitation and ...


  • Success of Onlin Leads to Closing for Wastewater 2 Process Control of Consent Order Treatment Plant

    In 2003, Plant City, a small Florida city of 30,000 residents, faced a very big problem. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDF.P) determined that the city's wastewater treatment plant was not consistently operating within its permit limits, and placed it under a consent order. Plant City is a highly industrialized area. "Our industrial loading is very diverse and includes metal ...
