CHICAGO — Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies Brazil and Veolia Water Americas recently signed a contract with Petrobras to design, build, own and operate an oil-bearing secondary material processing unit at its Alberto Pasqualini refinery (known as REFAP), which is located in Porto Alegre, South Brazil. It is the sixth largest of Petrobras’ refineries with a capacity of 200,000 bpd. The new unit will use Veolia’s proprietary processes to recycle the oil-bearing material back into the refining production processes, which is anticipated to result in approximately $1.5 million in annual cost savings.
“The new project is based on our long partnership with Petrobras, focusing on helping the company reach its environmental goals,” said Ruddi de Souza, general director of Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies Brazil.
