Reliance chooses WABAG for effluent treatment and recycling facility for its PTA wastewater at Dahej, Gujarat for aggregate value of Rs. 270 crores (Euro 41.5 million)
Reliance Industries Limited has chosen VA Tech Wabag for the construction of a 32.4 MLD effluent treatment plant with recycle facility for their proposed PTA and PET Dahej manufacturing plant, Gujarat and tertiary treatment plant for Reliance Hazira Complex for an order value aggregating to Rs.270 crores.
For the first time in India, the proposed facility will benefit from a combination of advanced technologies. The effluent treatment and recycle facility will have anaerobic treatment using Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) technology followed by aerobic treatment using MBR technology. This will be followed by recycling facility using membrane technologies such as ultra filtration and reverse osmosis. The effluent from the facility will be recycled and reused in the Dahej complex.
The proposed ETP and recycle facility is the first large-scale recycle plant for PTA wastewater in India. As part of the total Reliance order, the Industrial Water Business Group of WABAG would be executing two projects – one on provision of side stream filters for Reliance Dahej Manufacturing Plant and another project for construction of tertiary treatment plant for Reliance Hazira Complex – for a value of around Rs.20.00 crores.
