New Wastewater Treatment Plant for Major Petrochem Complex

New Wastewater Treatment Plant for Major Petrochem Complex

Construction of a major industrial wastewater treatment plant will commence this week at the Bandar Imam Petrochemical Complex in southern Khuzestan Province.
The plant will be the largest unit for recycling industrial wastewater, Shana reported.
Vice-President Masoumeh Ebtekar, who doubles as head of the Department of Environment, is scheduled to attend a ceremony on Tuesday to start the plant's construction work along with other environmental projects in Mahshahr Petrochemical Special Economic Zone, Shana reported.
The plant will have the capacity to treat 40,000 cubic meters of industrial effluent per day, which is about 80% of the wastewater produced at the sprawling complex, Shana reported.
Industrial wastewater treatment covers the mechanisms and processes used to treat wastewater that is produced as a by-product of industrial or commercial activities. After treatment, the treated industrial wastewater may be reused or released to a sanitary sewer or to surface waters in the environment.
Currently, each petrochemical unit in the complex has its own wastewater treatment plant. But with the new project, most of the treatment operations will be concentrated in a single plant.
Furthermore, Takhte-e-Jamshid Petrochemical Company’s industrial wastewater treatment plant is to go on stream during Ebtekar's visit on Tuesday. The plant cost $14 million.
