Siemens to provide wastewater treatment system for Sinopec's Anqing refinery

2011-5-31

The complete wastewater treatment solution will include a powdered activated carbon treatment (PACT) system, a Zimpro wet air regeneration (WAR) hydrothermal unit, and a Hydro-Clear sand filtration system. The three-tier system will be used to treat salty and oily wastewater from refining and petrochemical production activities from existing and upgraded units, Siemens said. The wastewater needs to meet the Chinese specifications for surface discharge.

The system will become operational in 2012. Siemens Water Technologies will provide a system to treat wastewater at China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (Sinopec Corp.)'s Anqing refinery, in Anhui Province, China. The complete wastewater treatment solution will include a powdered activated carbon treatment (PACT) system, a Zimpro wet air regeneration (WAR) hydrothermal unit, and a Hydro-Clear sand filtration system. The three-tier system will be used to treat salty and oily wastewater from refining and petrochemical production activities from existing and upgraded units. The wastewater needs to meet the Chinese specifications for surface discharge. The system will become operational in 2012. The 1,000 m3/h Anqing system will reportedly help Sinopec discharge a cleaner effluent and also generate approximately 500 m3/h of reusable water. The refinery will reuse the water in its cooling tower system, which will help to further offset the strain on China's surface water bodies. To treat the refinery's wastewater, Siemens will install a PACT system, which combines biological treatment and carbon adsorption into a single, synergistic treatment step to remove organics. The solids are pumped as slurry to the Zimpro WAR unit where the carbon is regenerated and biological solids are destroyed. As it will generate virtually no sludge that requires landfill disposal or incineration, the WAR system will help to lower operating costs for the Anqing refinery's wastewater treatment. The Hydro-Clear filter system makes it possible to filter large volumes of water and return it to the cooling circuit, resulting in large savings in the amount of fresh water required and thus further reducing costs. The entire wastewater treatment system's small footprint design will also reduce land requirements. Siemens' approach will help reduce the environmental impact of the treated effluent. The new wastewater treatment system is the seventh project that Siemens Water Technologies has worked on with Sinopec Corp, the company added.
