AHLSTAR and SNS pumps throughout corn ethanol processFS Bioenergia, located near Lucas do Rio Verde, Mato Grosso, is the first corn-only ethanol plant in Brazil. The production started in 2017 and the annual capacity is 250 million liters today. The facility utilizes the latest process technologies from ICM, an innovative company headquartered in Colwich, KS, USA that has become a world leader in biorefining technologies and processes. In addition to bioethanol, some high-value coproducts such as corn oil as well as high-protein and high-fiber dried distiller’s grains are produced. The plant also generates electricity from the biomass, partly for internal use and the surplus for sale.
Lower maintenance and operational costs for industrial wastewater treatmentThe industrial effluents of the Camaçari petrochemical complex are collected and conveyed to a centralized secondary wastewater treatment plant operated by Cetrel. In the activated sludge recirculation process, expensive maintenance was needed for the Archimedean screw pumps. Cetrel decided to replace them by more cost-effective and efficient pumps.
AHLSTAR pumps with maintenance-free dynamic sealsThe paper mill includes a conventional wastewater treatment plant which treats about 20'000 m³ per day of process effluents. At the output of the plant, about 30% of the discharge water is reintroduced into the mill circuit and the remaining 70% is returned to the Moselle river. Despite the increasing stringency on the quality of the discharge water, no environmental incident has occurred since the start-up of the plant.
