01 December 2017

Solvay and Suez have won a contract to treat brine from reverse osmosis desalination at Wanhua Chemical Industry Park in Yantai. This contract is part of the Alliance between Solvay and Suez, which was formed to jointly develop and market Advanced Oxidation processes (AOP’s) within China to meet stringent environmental standards.

Located in the coastal city of Yantai, the industry park of Wanhua Chemical is supplied with water by a reverse osmosis desalination plant. The contract won by Solvay and Suez provides a treatment line for the brine produced by the desalination process. With a capacity of 24 000 m3/day, this line will treat brine to achieve a quality discharge into the sea, in accordance with the most recent standards of the chemical industry. The treatment line will be equipped with Suez’s patented technologies (Densadeg, Biofor DN, Oxyblue, Flopac, Ozonia®XF), as well as the Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) jointly developed by Solvay and Suez to achieve the optimum treatment of brine and optimize the operational costs.
