Honeywell’s UOP Launches Wastewater Treatment System
Honeywell has launched an integrated bioreactor system to remove organic and inorganic contaminants from a wide range of industrial wastewater streams.
Honeywell’s UOP XCeed bioreactor system, based on Honeywell’s immobilized cell bioreactor technology, helps industrial, manufacturing and groundwater remediation facilities meet contaminant removal specifications for wastewater discharge or reuse. UOP’s commercial launch of this technology builds on the experience associated with more than 50 successful installations.
UOP’s XCeed bioreactor system has been proven reliable and cost-effective in food and beverage, chemical and textile manufacturing, groundwater remediation, and refinery and petrochemical applications worldwide, the company says.
The integrated treatment process can be delivered as a modular system and incorporates mixed-media support for immobilized bio-catalysts, or microbes. A sophisticated biological ecosystem enables longer biomass retention time and results in highly efficient biological oxygen demand (BOD) removal with low sludge production, the company says. The system has a relatively simple mechanical design that minimizes energy consumption and required operator attention.
