of water treatment plant
Located near Toledo, Ohio, TRC's Toledo Refinery processes light, sweet North American crude. With a capacity of 170,000 barrels per day, the refinery primarily produces fuels, including gasoline, ultra-low-sulfur diesel and jet fuel, in addition to a variety of high-value petrochemicals.
All refining processes produce solids and oily wastewater that must be treated for discharge or reuse. In the case of the Toledo Refining Company, its wastewater treatment plant is discharged to local and publicly owned treatment works (POTW). The refinery needed a solution to upgrade and optimise its wastewater treatment systems within its budget and schedule constraints and sought a partner in Veolia North America.
Optimal Process Performance
As part of Veolia's process optimisation and improvement solution, Veolia met with the customer at its manufacturing plant to review and evaluate the operations of the water recovery plant. They identified the teams that needed to be added for optimal process performance and implemented a project plan that met the client's goals and budget. The resulting proposal required Veolia to finance, design, build, own, operate, maintain and manage services and improvements to the refinery's water treatment process through a 20-year long-term contract.
