Mining operations, oil/gas production and other industries rely on feed water for multiple processes. As such, they must find cost-effective solutions to reduce hardness, achieve desalination and remove metals and suspended solids. Doing so economically not only lowers costs, but it also enhances their output in a sustainable manner.
Veolia has developed OPUS® and OPUS® II technologies which involve multiple treatment processes, chemical softening and CeraMem® ceramic membrane ultrafiltration technology used in a range of industrial and energy applications.
Veolia’s OPUS® technology employs a reverse osmosis process operated at an elevated pH. The original design combines a proprietary high-rate chemical softening process, Multiflo™, with filtration, ion exchange and RO. OPUS® II is a new innovation for Oil & Gas applications. In it, pretreatment is streamlined through the use of CeraMem® ceramic membranes, which provide improved oil removal as well as a more compact design.
Veolia’s OPUS® and OPUS® II technologies help industrial clients produce better feedwater more economically. This helps them save money on water treatment processes and use feedwater more effectively, boosting their output and conserving valuable resources.
