UOP debuts biological wastewater treatment system

Sep '14
UOP LLC, a division of NYSE-listed Honeywell Inc said it has launched an integrated bioreactor system, which will efficiently remove organic and inorganic contaminants from a wide range of industrial waste water.

The UOP XCeed bioreactor system will help manufacturing industries meet contaminant removal specifications for wastewater discharge or reuse.

This system, based on Honeywell's immobilized cell bioreactor technology has been built on experience associated with more than 50 successful installations.

Honeywell said the bioreactor system has proven to be reliable and cost-effective in chemical and textile manufacturing, groundwater remediation and refinery and petrochemical applications worldwide.

It adds that the integrated treatment process can be delivered as a modular system and incorporates mixed-media support for immobilized bio-catalysts, or microbes.

A sophisticated biological ecosystem enables longer biomass retention time and results in highly efficient biological oxygen demand (BOD) removal with low sludge production.

The system has a relatively simple mechanical design that minimizes energy consumption and required operator attention, Honeywell informs.

Mike Millard, Sr VP at UOP says, "Manufacturers globally are subject to stricter wastewater regulations and fees, which creates a need for more cost-effective treatment solutions that meet regulatory requirements and more stringent internal treatment standards.

"Using our expertise in process development, we have designed a high-performance biological treatment system that meets requirements efficiently and cost-effectively. UOP is using 100 years of experience purifying various process streams to create superior contaminant removal solutions."

UOP LLC is a supplier and licensor of process technology, catalysts, adsorbents, equipment, and consulting services to the petroleum refining, petrochemical, and gas processing industries.
