Abstract

Puma Energy is a major petroleum provider in Puerto Rico. Their Bayamón facility is in need of a cost effective batch treatment system to remove contaminants from their petroleum contact water (PCW) for discharge to the sewer system. This treated water must meet discharge limits specified by the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (PRASA). We contacted batch treatment system manufacturers, generated cost estimates, and arrived at a proposed system to treat the PCW in a cost effective manner.
