This wastewater treatment system was designed and engineered specifically to target and treat the contaminants found in the wastewater at their facility. The system is fully automated and features web-based remote monitoring software, allowing the system to run 24/7 with only 2 operators.
Alcoa also chose ProChem as their contracted operations service. Both of the operators needed to run the system work for ProChem, so Alcoa doesn't have any added overhead for their new system—but all the benefits of it.
We are proud to report that the system is producing 100% compliant effluent. This system is one huge step towards the facility's goal to reach a 95% wastewater reuse rate. The second phase of the project will include implementing ProChem's high pressure reverse osmosis technology, which will allow them to reuse their wastewater.
