MERICHEM SUCCESSFULLY STARTS UP MERICON™ III UNIT IN TURKEY

Merichem Company recently completed a successful start-up of a single vessel MERICON™ III unit for caustic neutralization and environmental control in Turkey.

MERICON technologies offer on-site solutions for processing spent caustics for BOD/COD reduction, odor control, and/or pH adjustment. Merichem’s proprietary MERICON process produces a neutral brine effluent stream using neutralization and/or oxidation steps. After treatment, these streams can be routed to wastewater treating facilities, evaporation ponds, or waterways.

Since 1988, over 26 MERICON technology licenses have been granted world-wide. The MERICON design is based on more than 75 years of first-hand operating knowledge gained from Merichem-owned plants. When coupled with Merichem’s other treating technologies, MERICON is the technology-of-choice, offering flexibility to treat a wide range of effluent streams.

Merichem Company provides a diversified portfolio of products and services to a wide range of operations, including the refining and petrochemicals industries. With more than 1,000 licensed process units worldwide, Merichem is the leader in licensing patented process technologies and supplying proprietary equipment to provide hydrocarbon treating solutions and by-product management services that remove sulfur and other impurities from hydrocarbon liquids and gases in the upstream and downstream energy sectors.
