The client was in need of both a raw water and wastewater treatment system for its new 1,100-megawatt (MW) natural gasfired combined cycle power station that was being built to replace an existing 400-MW coal-fired plant that had been decommissioned previously. Veolia Water Technologies was contacted to engineer, procure and supply a 6,000 gallons per minute (GPM) raw water treatment system and a 1,200-GPM wastewater treatment system.
Wastewater from dairy applications has high amounts of calcium and phosphorus. This characteristic may cause scaling on the media of a Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor and may cause poor COD removal. Veolia was able to retrofit the client’s existing MBBR with the newly designed Z-MBBR media by AnoxKaldnes, which improved the operation of the entire wastewater system.
The City of Somersworth has a historical background dating back to the early 1900s when it became the first community to start using chlorine to disinfect it’s drinking water.
The client revived, expanded and modernized its operations in order to produce rare earth materials in high volumes and in an environmentally responsible manner. As part of the expansion, the client contracted Veolia to design and build a new water treatment plant for their state-of-the-art rare earth facility.
The population continues to grow, demanding more output from fewer resources. This strain is felt acutely in the power industry. New plants are built to accommodate the growing population’s power needs, requiring more water than ever for power generation and cooling. As freshwater resources continue to dwindle, more plants are turning to reclaimed water.
Population growth, economic development, and climate change are placing increasing pressure on our planet’s water resources. Many studies, including one conducted by IFPRI and Veolia in 2011, depict a future world with elevated tensions due to growing demand for a limited supply of water.
The NEOSEP® MBR system features Kruger’s uniquely designed K-120C and K-240C flat sheet membrane modules. The modules offer several innovative design features that enhance ease of installation, operation and maintenance. This includes an integrated central lifting eye, offering an incredibly well balanced module that makes installation and retrieval a simple and stress-free process.
The use of anionic potato starch in clarification was assessed by comparison with polyacrylamide flocculant in order to evaluate its effect on the performances of Actiflo® Turbo combined with Sand Filtration and Actiflo® Turbo combined with Ultrafiltration in terms of water quality and kinetics of biofilm formation.
Veolia’s CeraMem® Ceramic Membrane Technology was selected as an “Energy Innovation Pioneer” at the 34th Annual CERAWeek energy Conference due to successful installations in the oil & gas industry.
The ACTIFLO® CARB process combines the features and the efficiency of ACTIFLO® with the adsorption qualities of activated carbon to remove compounds that are refractory to water clarification.
Veolia's HPD® Crystallization Technology will be an essential part of the first greenfield project in North America in nearly 40 years when completed in 2016. The Legacy Project will produce 2 million tonnes per year of potassium chloride by 2017.
The world has to rethink its relationship with resources and come up with new social and economic growth models that are more efficient, better balanced and more sustainable.
