When refineries purify crude oil to be used in products, such as gasoline and diesel fuel, the raw crude oil has many contaminants that need to be removed such as ammonia and phenols. During the washing cycle, these phenols are removed from the crude oil and become attached to the water. Before the water can be discharged to the environment, the phenols must be removed and destroyed.
SAMCO uses a proprietary resin technology to absorb the phenols from the water, then, after the media is saturated with phenols, a regeneration process takes place to remove the phenols from the media and concentrate it into a liquid form for disposal.
