APTwater's HiPOx Industrial systems provide high-performance treatment of even the most difficult Petrochemical and Refining water treatment applications. Our patented reactor design delivers the power of Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) chemistry for the destruction of difficult-to-treat compounds such as MTBE, 1,4-Dioxane, naphthenic acids, and other organic compounds.
Petroleum and refining operations produce wastewater streams containing a wide range of recalcitrant organic chemicals including large volumes of wastewater containing toxic naphthenic acids, and other derivatives. Removal of these compounds typically requires large amounts of activated carbon, which in turn requires frequent change-out and costly replacement of regeneration and disposal. Conversely, the powerful hydroxyl radical-based AOP chemistry of the HiPOx system allows destruction of these compounds to dissolved CO2 and H20 or to readily bio-available intermediaries. The result is significantly increased carbon life, enhanced biological treatment, and improved overall process performance. Additionally, HiPOx systems employed for effluent polishing achieve high levels of BOD/COD destruction to meet strict discharge limits.
Many Petrochemical & Refining sites also maintain active groundwater remediation projects. Depending on a project's requirements, many HiPOx systems can be configured to treat wastewater and groundwater process flows either together or separately. APTwater's PulseOx In-Situ AOP technology can also be combined to provide "hot-spot" remediation of the most challenging areas to further enhance treatment objectives and reduce long-term treatment costs.
APTwater's HiPOx and PulseOx systems offer performance and cost-savings advantages for Petrochemical & Refining operations. HiPOx-treated effluent is of sufficiently high quality to allow its reuse for cooling water make-up, irrigation, or other process applications. The overall result is reduced water consumption, enhanced environmental compliance, and reduced long-term operating costs. Regardless of your Petrochemical or Refining water treatment needs, APTwater's process technologies deliver enhanced sustainability and proven results.
