SEMINAR OVERVIEW HE800
Oily Water Treatment Technology
Oily Water Treatment Technology
September 16-20, 2006 / Bateen Meeting Room, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Abu Dhabi , UAE
Billions of gallons of wastewaters containing oils and particulates are produced each year by m etallurgical plants, ships, petroleu m and gas operations, industrial washing operations, and other processes. Unfortunately, water syste m s have long tended to be one of the neglected areas of the process plant. However, this situation is changing rapidly as environ m ental legislation tightens. This seminar is uniquely place to assist process plants in m eeting these challenges, offering unrivalled expertise in water syste m s and the proble m s associated with treat m ent of oily water. Much of the technology discussed in this seminar has been developed to m eet the challenges faced in the North Sea ; oil producers there face so m e of the toughest environ m ental controls in the oil industry.
Before designing general treat m ents for refinery and petroche m ical plant oily water, it is necessary to know where the different polluted discharges co m e fro m , the levels of pollution and whether they can be classified into segregated sewers each equipped with its own pretreat m ent if need be. Pretreat m ent is designed either to allow a certain degree of recycling in situ or to control costs and sizes that would increase if an overly diluted pollutant were treated.
The m ain effluent itself, oily and accidentally oily water, undergoes the now routine series of three basic purifications which constitute the three stages of general treat m ent:
- Preli m inary oil re m oval
- Physicoche m ical oil re m oval
- Biological or secondary purification
It may have had particular effluents added after their pretreat m ent or nonoily effluents inserted before the second or third stage.
Lastly, a fourth stage, often called tertiary treat m ent, has beco m e increasingly co m m on. It is designed either to m eet tougher standards (nitrogen, especially) or to recycle m ake up water to at m ospheric cooling syste m s.
