Honeywell Technology To Help HollyFrontier Meet Stricter Wastewater Regulations
January 15, 2016
Honeywell announced that industrial wastewater technology from Honeywell UOP will help a Wyoming refinery remove contaminants from its wastewater to meet new environmental requirements.
HollyFrontier Cheyenne Refining LLC has selected Honeywell UOP’s XCeed™ bioreactor technology to remove selenium from wastewater at its 52,000 barrel-per-day refinery in Cheyenne, Wyo. The high-performance unit will process approximately 1 million gallons per day of wastewater when it goes online this year.
“Honeywell UOP’s XCeed bioreactor technology was selected above other technologies after a successful field demonstration for selenium removal,” said Jim Stump, senior vice president of refining for HollyFrontier. “Honeywell UOP has a long history as a supplier to HollyFrontier’s subsidiaries. Adding this new technology will help HollyFrontier continue to meet its environmental commitments by further polishing the refinery’s treated effluent water.”
