Kuwait Integrated Petroleum Industries Company (KIPIC) entrusts Veolia with the operation of the wastewater treatment plant at its refinery in Al Zour, southern Kuwait.
The Al Zour refinery - one of the largest petrochemical complexes in the world - will be able to produce up to 615,000 barrels per day once commissioned, bringing Kuwait's refining capacity to over 1.5 million barrels a day.
KIPIC has awarded Veolia a 7 year contract to manage the refinery’s waste treatment plant that will process and recycle 1,500 m3 / h of wastewater. Veolia will also provide sludge incineration and optimize treatment and recycling, with a goal of zero liquid discharge (ZLD).
In a region of the world undergoing unprecedented development, this new success confirms that natural resource management has now become a strategic issue for industry.
