Case Studies: Industrial Wastewater Solutions

This case-study describes the successful implementation of a one-time service in one of South Africa’s largest refineries. The client was searching for a solution for accumulated wastewater that had been in storage for over 18 months. Water samples from the site were taken to the lab where an appropriate bacteria mix was developed for it and the storage tank itself was turned into a bio-reactor.The whole process took approximately two weeks. In comparison to industry standards, the installation required a significantly smaller footprint and provided a more environmentally responsible, cost-effective solution. This technology poses a benefit to the industry as well as the environment owing to its process simplicity and the virtually sludge-free outputs.

BioPetroClean’s unique wastewater treatment technology, Automated Chemostat Treatment™, provides an efficient, cost-effective solution for small and medium capacity sites.The following case study discusses the installation of BPC’s ACT treatment at the Eilat-Ashkelon Pipeline Company (EAPC), following a successful pilot project in 2007. BPC was able to treat drainage and ballast waters on-site by using a fully-automated biological skid-mount system and in a cost-effective manner. The full-scale implementation vastly improved the purity of effluent and has additionally ameliorated the contamination levels of the sand of EAPC’s aeration lagoon.

Medium Size Installation for Storage Farms


 

Bilge water must be cleaned from traces of oil and organic chemicals before it is discharged to the sea. The currently available biological methods for treating the dissolved contaminants in bilge water are often cumbersome and sensitive to inlet fluctuations. Furthermore they are based on the concept of maintaining a high cell concentration that results in high sludge levels. These translate to operational difficulties and to high operational expenses. As an efficient and economical alternative, BPC offers its innovative BPC-ACT technology. The fully automated system is easy to implement, highly efficient and is cost effective. This case study describes the pilot trial for implementing the BPC-ACT method on bilge water. Based on its successful completion, the customer is now interested in the erection of a full on-going BPC-ACT system.

Bilge Water- Case Study


 

One of India’s governmental companies for oil excavation and production was searching for a wastewater purification process that will allow re-injection of produced water and will also be cost-effective and easily operated. The BPC-ACT treatment was straightforward and simple, resulting in a significantly lower sludge level, which allowed a more effective and economical post-treatment and disinfection of the produced water.

Purification of Produced Water


 

Crude oil of approximately 100 tons was accidentally spilled in the beach line between Haifa and Acre, Israel. A preliminary field trial resulted with 84.5% oil degradation of a 50 m2 sand plot, after 25 days. This trial was followed by a high scale implementation. The Utilization of BPC technology on 30,000 m2 of contaminated sand beach yielded 88% degradation (even during winter time), in a 4 months period. Visual examination of the beach sand, following the treatment, in addition to the analytical data, indicate that BPC’s technology is an applicable approach for sand bioremediation.
