World Energy chooses Bechtel to treat sour water at Paramount facility

May 11, 2021 |

In California, Bechtel announced that World Energy, a net-zero carbon solutions provider for transport selected its SWSPlusSM technology to treat the sour water at the company’s renewable fuels facility in Paramount, California. Bechtel will provide a license and the engineering support to implement the technology that will further improve the environmental performance of World Energy’s renewable fuels production process.

The three significant benefits World Energy will realize from the implementation of the SWSPlusSM  technology in its renewable fuels production include:

  • Reduction of nitrous oxides (NOx) emissions because the ammonia and hydrogen sulfide are recovered before incineration;
  • The recovered hydrogen sulfide can be converted to elemental sulfur and the ammonia can be used within the refinery or sold as an additional source of revenue;
  • Greater efficiency of the facility because of the removal of ammonia from downstream processes.
