Customer: Tobacco company in Egypt
Case of application:
A tobacco company from Egypt contacted us to solve their sewage treatment problem.
Tobacco wastewater comes from two sources: industrial wastewater which accounts for around 50-60% of the wastewater. It comes from washing water and cleaning of the silk making/roll-adhesive equipment. The other 40-50% comes from domestic use and miscellaneous wastewater.
With a normal waterflow of 5m³/day and a peak of 10m³/day the average wateflow should not exceed 7,5m³/day.
There was an existing buffer tank with three chambers already installed with following datas:
11510mg/l BOD influent – [Effluent Limit 600mg/l]
19184mg/l COD influent – [Effluent Limit 1100mg/l]
1960mg/l TSS influent – [Effluent Limit 800mg/l]
100mg/l Oil influent
3.9mg/l Total P influent
pH 4.36mg/l influent
Our specialists advised to install chemical pretreatment, DAF and a sludge big bag dewatering unit in the first chamber. In addition to this, a FBR system with a clarifier in the second chamber.
