Case Study - Coffeyville Resources Nitrogen Fertilizers

SERVICES: Comprehensive Water Management
Mobile Actiflo & Hydrex Chemicals
LOCATION: Coffeyville, Kansas

Coffeyville wanted to develop a more sustainable approach to their water usage so they contracted with Veolia to evaluate their water usage and units of operation. The results of the evaluation lead to a 6-phase Water Conservation, Reclaim and Reuse program to be implemented at the facility. Through this approach, Coffeyville was able to reduce their overall water requirements by 13%, while also reducing the demands on the plant utility infrastructure and overall operational budget.


In addition to water & wastewater treatment, Veolia also provides technologies for in-process and the production of specialty chemicals.


Evaporation & Crystallization

Veolia's HPD® Evaporation and Crystallization systems concentrate dilute process streams to extract high-purity crystalline chemicals while recovering clean water and other valuable by-products from waste brine.


Specialty Chemical Production
Veolia's HPD® Evaporation and Crystallization technologies produce specialty water-soluble chemicals such as multi-nutrient fertilizers and crystalline crop-protection applications.


Veolia combines innovative technology with industry experience to provide economical and effective filtration and separation technologies.

Case Study - Alkim Alkali Kimya A.S.

Technology: HPD® Crystallization System

Location: Turkey

Alkim's facility is designed to produce 120,000 tpa (tons per annum) of refined sodium sulfate. The process begins with solution-mined Glauberite from natural deposits that are converted to Glauber’s Salt as the first purification step. This is accomplished in a four-effect, HPD forced circulation crystallization system, also provided by Veolia. The Glauber’s Salt is then transferred to a melter, which produces a slurry as feed to the crystallization system. This slurry is then re-crystallized and sent to the solids handling system as the final step. The end product is anhydrous sodium sulfate that meets stringent quality requirements for both purity and crystal size to Alkim standards.
