Pharmaceutical Wastewater Treatment – Engineering consulting – Taizhou, Zhejiang, China

General, Latest Projects, Technology, World

VALORSABIO proudly announce the conclusion of a requalification for a complete wastewater treatment plant, for a multinational pharmaceutical plant in Taizhou, Zhejiang Province, China.

The project started in February 2011 and was concluded last December 2012.

The new project was designed after several months’ tests in situ for determination of the best options to implement the depuration of a very complex mix of industrial wastewater.

 

The designed solution  comprises the use of all  concrete previous tanks all together with  a new anaerobic treatment as Primary Treatment, based on VALORSABIO’s technology UASB-PRO, and a Secondary Treatment  based also on VALORSABIO’s technology, the JET-LOOP SYSTEM + MBR.

In parallel to the Secondary Treatment based on biological processes (JET-LOOP SYSTEM +MBR)  was also installed a Chemical & Physical unit, able to flocculate and remove non-biodegradable substances present in the effluents.

The UASB-PRO installed and in operation since November2011, uses an new pulse process for the wastewater feed, solving the old problems found in large UASB’s, related with unbalanced and bad distribution of feed, preferential paths of flow inside the bioreactors and difficulties in stabilizing the up-flow wastewater within the design range.

The operation of the UASB-PRO is now capable to reduce the COD loads by more than 80%, even in the case with the presence of a poorly biologically degradable influent , and produces a considerable volume of biogas, thus reducing the treatment OPEX and creating a return as electrical energy and hot water from the biogas cogeneration burn.

 

As for the JET-LOOP SYSTEM +MBR, the process is operating with low HRT ( less than 25%) in comparison with previous conventional activated sludge process and produces an extremely high quality treated water, fully under the legal permits negotiated with the authorities agencies.

The present project is an irrefutable prof that industrial wastewater treatment can be implemented well if the right engineering approach will be followed , comprising the unavoidable pre-tests for optimization of the solutions prior to design and engineering.

  • Tiny edible tag could help fight counterfeit drugs January 17, 2020
    Scientists have developed a new type of edible security tag that could be used to identify authentic medications in the battle against counterfeit drugs. Created by researchers at Purdue University, the tag uses a technique called ‘physical unclonable functions,’ or PUF, that was originally developed for authentication in information and hardware security. T […]
  • Video of the week: to space and back with Starliner January 16, 2020
    This week’s video comes from Boeing which has released footage from Starliner’s first flight into space and her return to Earth. Four interior cameras recorded the spacecraft’s launch on December 20, 2019 and a further 48 hours of footage that captured situations including separation events, on-orbit manoeuvring, re-entry and landing. Boeing performs ‘satisf […]
