Hazardous and non-hazardous liquid wastes, delivered by all modes of transport, can be received and treated at the facility.
Wastewaters with organic pollutants are treated using a three-step water treatment process. Initially the water is pre-treated in a flotation unit where inorganic components are precipitated and removed from the water. Secondly, the water is sent for biological treatment. MAC² has two sequential batch reactors.
Finally prior to discharging into the 4th harbour dock, the water is retreated using a second flotation unit
- Waste waters with non water soluble layers (including hydrocarbon /petroleum etc)
- Low flash components (< 61°C)
