Case Study: Italy's ENEL Power Installs ZLD Plant For Sulcis For FGD Wastewater Treatment
Wastewaters from FGD treatment plant can no longer be discharged into the sea due to tough Italian and EU environmental regulations. In order to overcome this major environmental problem, ENEL decided to feed the prescrubber with fresh and recirculated waters and install the Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) plant so that no industrial wastewater discharges are allowed by the entire power plant.
To overcome the problem, ENEL selected the Softening – Evaporation – Crystallization (SEC) process to treat the wastewaters and reuse/conserve fresh waters. Aquatech supplied, installed, commissioned the ZLD plant as an EPC contractor with local associates.
The SEC plant comprises of 1 x 100% Softener Clarifier (calcium reduction by soda ash dosing), 1 x 100% Falling Film type Brine Concentrators (equipped with two Vapor Compressors operating in series), 1 x 100% Crystallizer (equipped with Thermocompressors) and 2 x 50% Belt Filter Presses. The plant also includes several chemical dosing systems, storage tanks, pumping systems, electrical works (MCC, cable trays, cabling etc), controls & instrumentation.
