Venture Engineering & Construction was contracted to provide a rare earth facility design support of a facility for purifying waste brine into a feedstock suitable for a downstream chlor-alkali plant.
- Advancing the original concept which involved multiple steps of precipitation chemisty,
- Re-purposing existing process facilities for brine treatment, using surplus equipment from other areas of the facility,
- Developing a means to supply a uniform flow to the chlor-alkali plant from a variable supply; more specifically to:
- Simultaneously feed the chlor-alkali process with treated brine from the processing facility while diverting excess brine to the remote holding ponds, or
- Simultaneously feed the chlor-alkali process with treated brine from the processing facility while compensating for shortfalls by the feeding brine from remote holding ponds, or
- Continue processing waste brine flows without interruption in the event of an outage at the chlor-alkali plant, or
- Supply brine from remote holding ponds to the chlor-alkali process without interruption in the event of an outage at the brine processing facility.
- Scrubbing of the original P&IDs and developing new P&IDs as required
- Equipment list, instrument list, and valve list
- Arrangement drawings and piping plans
- Procurement of new and used equipment
