Refineries are among the major consumers of water due to cooling towers and process usage. During the treatment and refining of crude oil, large quantities of wastewater are generated, which require treatment.
The quality of this wastewater depends on the grade of the crude oil and the process for treating the oil. As environmental regulations for wastewater disposal are getting stricter, and freshwater resources are becoming increasingly limited, the industry requires more efficient management and reuse of this wastewater.
