In a cutting-edge sector, such as Pharma & Cosmetics production, the needs related to wastewater can be summarized as optimization of the whole water cycle management, controlling the costs and respecting the environment. Within the Health Care industry, water is commonly used in liquid, either as an ingredient in many formulations and also as a cleaning agent. The wastewater coming from these processes can offer opportunities for matter recovery and water reuse.
Water is one of the most important solvent or component in the chemicals production industry. From the production of water as a solvent for formulas, to the water used for mixers and reactors washing operations, the management of the whole water cycle from inlet to final discharge is a primary importance issue to face.
Market segments such as automotive, aviation, furniture, appliance involve: mechanical treatments and surface treatments that require large quantity of water and produce highly pollutant wastewater that cannot be discharged directly and contribute to increase company’s running costs.
The food & beverage industry uses water for containers’ and plants’ rinsing, raw materials and plants’ washing, and for boilers feeding. All the effluents coming from the production process can be reused a second time allowing water saving and matter recovery (when needed).
The leachate produced by the waste in the landfill is an extremely pollutant effluent that requires high effective treatment processes to comply with the very strict limits for discharging operations. EVALED evaporators are a technological solution which allow to exploit the biogas cogeneration for the full or partial power supply of the plant within the limits of the environmental regulations and to reduce the relevant costs for thermal energy and leachate disposal.
The oil & gas industry faces water and wastewater treatment specific challenges. EVALED evaporators represent an effective solution for both downstream (onshore and offshore) and upstream plants, allowing ZLD (Zero Liquid Discharge).
EVALED evaporators treat or minimize wastewater from the Power Generation Industry. Flue gas desulfurization effluents require different kinds of treatments depending on the type of fuel, water sources, and environmental regulations.
Water is essential component in the mining and steel industries. The main needs under this aspect are optimizing the management of the resources, improving productivity by treating available water for specific production process requirements and managing environmental risks by treating contaminated pond and underground mine water to remove heavy metals, arsenic and other contaminants for safe discharge into sensitive environment.
Different industries with many different challenges to face. All of them have to find efficient and effective solutions to optimize the available resources for an ever more high competitiveness and, contextually, to comply with the most stringent regulations about the protection of the environment.
