Influent (Raw) Water Treatment
Regardless of the source of the intake water, Veolia technologies ensure there is a consistent supply of water to the facility.
Pulp and paper manufacturers rely upon their utility operations to provide steam and cooling water to support production. Veolia’s equipment and chemical technologies effectively produce the type of water your utilities need to ensure reliable steam quality, heat exchange efficiency and environmental compliance.
Veolia is experienced in helping clients reduce their financial exposure and comply with discharge requirements and stringent environmental regulations.
Water Footprint Reduction
To reduce a facility's water footprint, Veolia offers a wide-variety of water reuse technologies. From debarking wash water to wastewater reuse, Veolia helps companies optimize the use of water in their facility.
Mobile Water Treatment
Veolia Water Technologies provides mobile water and wastewater treatment solutions to cover emergency, temporary or long-term water treatment needs.
Case Study - Leading Recycle Paper Mill
A recycle paper mill was needing to upgrade their wastewater treatment facility to improve COD removal and Calcium removal as pretreatment before ZLD (Zero Liquid Discharge). Additionally, the facility needed to have reliable wastewater treatment to ensure regulatory compliance.
Veolia installed two (2) Biothane EGSB (450 m3 each) to replace their existing anaerobic system. The facility was designed to treat up to 1,320 m3/day with loading rates up to 12,700 kg COD/day. As a result, the system was able to remove 80% of the COD and with its calcium removal step, it was able to prevent scaling in the downstream ZLD process.
Liquor Concentration and Chemical Recovery Capabilities using HPD® Evaporation and Crystallization Technologies
Black Liquor Concentration
The thermal treatment of black liquor through evaporation achieves higher solids content and lower loads to the recovery boiler leading to the optimization of combined heat and power production. When integrated within the chemical recovery cycle, this technology promotes higher operational efficiencies while enabling the reuse of high-quality condensate.
Precipitator Ash Treatment
With the closing of process loops, chloride and potassium accumulate in the recovery cycle and result in scaling and corrosion in the boiler. Using highly-selective crystallization technologies, these non-process elements (NPEs) are removed while sodium is recovered to maximize soda chemical savings.
Case Study - Leading Container Board Manufacturer
Location: Virginia (USA)
An existing containerboard manufacturing facility needed to replace the existing three evaporator trains at the facility. The project scope included construction of a six-effect, HPD® falling film evaporator train that produces 74% product solids at an evaporation rate of 897k lbs/hr (407 t/h). Veolia also installed a CRP (Chloride Removal Process) System to successfully process precipitator slurry to protect downstream utility equipment from scaling.
HPD® Black Liquor Evaporation & Recovery Systems
Highly efficient evaporation system designed to concentrate solids, optimize recovery boiler performance, and create a high quality distillate for water reuse
ECRP™ Enhanced Chloride Removal Process System
ECRP™ maximizes potassium recovery and repurposes a renewable by-product into high-purity potassium sulfate (SOP), a specialty fertilizer produced to feed high-value crops
Biothane® High-Rate Anaerobic Treatment System
Anaerobic granular wastewater treatment process designed to effectively remove COD/BOD, while simultaneously generating green energy as a by-product
AnoxKaldnes™ BAS (Before Activated Sludge)
Specialized MBBR (Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor) process that removes easily biodegradable COD and protects the activated sludge system from peak loads and improved sludge settling
Multiflo® High-Rate Softener
Proprietary softening process that incorporates chemical precipitation with sludge thickening to produce an effluent with low concentrations of scale-formers and a highly concentrated sludge that can be easily dewatered
