Water and Wastewater Technologies

Lummus Technology takes on difficult wastewater treatment problems for operators with its Zimpro® wet air oxidation system (WAO) and the Powder Activated Carbon Technology (PACT®) system, tailored solutions that can help increase performance, debottleneck, and allow for brownfield retrofits and greenfield opportunities. As the global leader in ethylene cracking technology, the Zimpro WAO process fits perfectly in helping treat spent caustic from ethylene production, processing the wastewater from the caustic scrubber and allowing for safe disposal or discharge.


Zimpro Wet Air Oxidation Process

The wet air oxidation process is the oxidation of soluble or suspended components in an aqueous environment using oxygen as the oxidizing agent. When air is used as the source of oxygen the process is referred to as the wet air oxidation process.

PACT Process

Lummus Technology understands the challenges you face as utility and facility managers. Specifically, the issues you contend with as you apply new technology and implement water reuse strategies to reduce the environmental impact of wastewater discharges.
