Temporary Phenol Oxidation Program to Support a Refinery Aeration Basin Turnaround – Lab Treatability Testing Through Successful Full Scale Implementation – A Case Study

ABSTRACT

In 2015, a maintenance turnaround of the wastewater aeration tank was undertaken at United Refining Company in Warren, PA. During the planned 70 day turnaround, the refinery needed a temporary chemical oxidation program to maintain compliance with permitted effluent phenol levels. This paper will present data and key learnings from all phases of this successful project, including laboratory treatability testing, process design, full scale implementation and successful completion.
