Waste treatment is not profitable to a company unless the company is into waste treatment. Processing of waste is inevitable to keep the process plant running as well as compliance with the regulations.
How is your organization handling its residue, is your plant losing products because of inefficiencies? We are ready to assist you back-end processes bottle-necking your main production line and limiting your productivity. Are you having issues with your waste treatment systems that lead to regulatory penalty?
The first approach is to define the problem. What is the waste you are worried about? Wastes come in many forms, and it has different requirement of handling them depending on which regulatory umbrella category the wastes fall under. Sometimes the problem will be a minor process changes that can be resolved by modifying a chemical feed or recycling a byproducts stream, which can simplify the waste management requirements. But in some situations that wouldn’t be the case. However, it’s often better to approach the process as a whole rather than merely tacking a Band-Aid on the end, hoping it all will work out. We have the means to understand both the FEED process as well as the back-end waste treatment. Depending on the type of process plant operation and the type of waste the plant generate, the approach for handling the waste/residue may be a simple single unit operation or it may be a complex production operation, containing numerous interactive unit operations. A few of the more common unit operations encountered in industrial waste processing include:
HOW WE CAN ASSIST
We have the expertise’s that are specialized in wastes treatment systems designs and its operations to help ensure your residues are well handled cost-effectively, allowing your production processes to operate efficiently and reliably.
- Gas Scrubbing/Stripping
- Product recovery
- Chemical Treatment (oxidation or reduction reactions, precipitation/neutralization/)
- Biological Treatment (aerobic and anaerobic)
- Liquid/Solid separation (filtration, dewatering, drying, crystallization)
- Thermal Treatment (oxidation, catalytic conversion, vitrification)
- And more complex methods (distillation, ion exchange, solvent extraction, membrane separation,)
We have extensive experience in assisting clients in determining the best pathway forward when handling many types of waste streams. We design the process from the basics up and build on the information and expertise from our client, and specialized equipment manufacturers as required, to ensure the process we design will perform at an optimum level.
ASSISTANCE TODAY AND TOMORROW
Minimizing waste and protecting the environment is key considerations as good process industry stewards. It is something we all have to pay attention to during the design and plant operations. With our knowledge and experience in process design and operations we are able to perform a feasibility study, formulate a logical design basis, provide a detailed process design, and assist the client in operations startup of any type of waste treatment. We can support during the decommissioning stage of a process by using that same process knowledge to shut down and disassemble the process in the most effective means. As part of such projects, EBL is also sometimes requested to provide Environmental Compliance Services to assure the client that all regulatory requirements are met.
