Identify the Problem
The first step in any water reclamation application is to clearly and accurately identify the problem or specific waste stream contaminants, and to clearly define the expected outcome to be achieved or required discharge limits as established by local, state, and federal regulations. This can only be achieved by following specific practices of sample collection and the necessary analysis performed to determine the waste stream configuration. Once this step has been completed we then proceed to the second step in our process.
Analyze the Data
The next step in our process is to analyze the waste stream to accurately determine the level of contamination within the given waste stream. This analysis will also tell us the Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD),Total Suspended Solids (TSS), and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS). Once this information is collected it is passed on to our design engineering team. At this point in our process, our design engineering team will carefully go over every aspect of the waste stream data. Once all the data is assimilated, the information will be input into a proprietary computer simulation which contains all the waste stream data as well as the regulatory discharge limits. The resultant information will then give our design engineers the necessary design information to begin building a laboratory system for process testing of the given waste stream.
Present Business Case
During the data analysis and system engineering design, our team of market cost analysis professionals collect current operational & maintenance cost which include electrical energy, system flow rates, any waste disposal surcharges, maintenance cost including spare parts, and regulatory charges for non-compliance. This data is compared to our highly energy efficient, low operational and maintenance cost, system, and a case study built to show the anticipated cost savings.
Our Customized Solution
After all the information is collected and assimilated, a case study is developed specifically for the client. This case study will show a comparison of current cost vs projected costs, along with the projected savings for the client. The report will also include: process drawings, the process flow diagram of our engineered system and show an actual material mass balance of our system which is designed for the client. Lastly, as part of this step we would provide the balance of our documentation including financing options available for review.
Design, Build and Operate
Upon acceptance of our Customized Solution, the final step of the process is for the client to finalize the choices of any options that would affect the Design, Financing from our Leasing and Lending Partners, and lastly which type of Operating and Servicing Contract they would choose. After making those choices we would begin the design phase of the project. Construction and installation will be done through our internationally recognized Engineering, Procurement, & Construction team. When installation is completed the commissioning process will begin in which we will test every aspect of the system to insure it meets design specifications. The system will then be tested under full operating conditions before it is deemed operational at which point full commercial operation shall begin.
