Veolia to Supply Lee & Man with Chemical Removal Process Systems at Pulp Mill in China

Veolia ECRP CAPTION

Oct. 26, 2019 - Veolia Water Technologies will supply a chloride and potassium removal system to Lee & Man's integrated pulp and tissue mill in Chongqing, China. The pulping technology at the site is based bamboo fiber.

The value of the order was not disclosed.

Veolia explained that its patented HPD® Enhanced Chloride Removal Process (ECRP™) uses a two-stage crystallization process, which is designed to treat 72 tons per day of precipitator ash to recover 93% of the sodium and remove 89% of the chlorides and 96% of potassium in the ash.

According to Veolia, the new systems will allow Lee & Man to maximize sodium chemical savings while maintaining high chloride and potassium removal that prevents the undesired accumulations in the precipitator ash, which if left uncontrolled, can create corrosion and significant capacity losses due to boiler fouling.

“Veolia is pleased to help Lee & Man further optimize their production site in Chongqing. As we have proven to other recyclers and kraft pulp producers, Veolia makes it possible to reach a substantial reduction in persistent non-process elements while achieving significant chemical savings that reduce operating costs,” said Jim Brown, Executive Vice President, Veolia Water Technologies Americas.
