Audit and Optimization

Paramount extends the following Plant support services.

• Plant adequacy Studies
• Process Performance Audit
• Air pollution and stack monitoring
• Environment Audit

Plant Adequacy Test:

Adequacy Studies on existing systems are conducted to establish if the present facility is adequate to treat additional effluent load to the system and also recommending various steps to upgrade units to create sufficiency in the system to treat additional effluent loads.

Paramount Limited has been a dependable partner in conducting Adequacy Study on Water and Wastewater systems and run a team of experienced and highly skilled engineers and technicians for such activities.

The study comprises checks on the following.

• Inspecting the existing facilities and studying the operation of the same at designed load conditions. Samplings conducted to verify the performance.
• Source study on the effluents is made to check if any pre-treatment methodology will be required to take additional loads
• Studies on new effluents that are to be generated are conducted. If pilot trials are in progress, effluent samples are collected and treatability checked with that prevailing in the existing model
• A final report with work sheets, checks and balances and recommendations on upgradations, if required are enumerated and submitted for Owners consideration.

Process Performance Audit:

Paramount Limited also provides services on process performance audits on water and water treatment plants to evaluate the performance of process units and unit operations.

A team of skilled engineers and technicians study the plant operation and conduct capacity test and sampling of inlet and outlet water/ effluent streams. The samples are taken for detailed analysis.

The final audit report with the worksheets is submitted to the Owner for their further actions.

Dissolved Oxygen (DO) profiling is an important first step into identifying means of improving the energy efficiency of an aeration system.

Dissolved oxygen profiling is conducted in activated sludge plants for a number of potential reasons. Common reasons are to determine aeration dead spots in aeration lanes, back flow of aerated liquor into anoxic zones and the efficiency of tapered aeration systems. Profiles are either conducted over the course of a day, or data can be logged over a period of several days.

Activated sludge plant energy efficiency surveys data log the power consumption of the aeration device over a predetermined period, typically one week. During this period, composite samples are taken of the influent to determine organic loading of the Activated Sludge Plant, and also of the final effluent to determine the level of treatment the system is achieving. Nitrification is also taken into consideration as is nitrate recovery in any anoxic zones.

From this information, the theoretical oxygen demand is calculated for the organic load treated which is then related to the power used by the aeration device to give an in process aeration efficiency measured in kgO2/kWh.

Air Pollution and Stack Monitoring:

The laboratory also conducts periodic monitoring of ambient air and stack based on customer requirement. The basic analysis that is conducted is as follow.

• Suspended Particulate matter

• Oxygen

• Nitrogen

• Sulphur dioxide

• Oxides of Nitrogen

• Carbon monoxide and dioxide

• Moisture

• Flue gas Flow rate in stack

Environmental Audit

R & D division of “Paramount” Limited is a recognized Environmental Auditor by the Gujarat Pollution Control Board.

The audit is conducted on industries based on the facilities falling in Schedule I and II of the Hon’ble High Court Order dated 13March 1997 and as per the GPCB directions issued from time to time.

The audit is conducted in three seasons with at least three sets of samples of effluents (air + wastewater + Solid/ hazardous waste) from all discharge points. The analysis of the effluents are done as per standard methods and enumerated in the Report.

The audit also comprises the checks on the following.

• Analysis of effluent from all discharge points as per standards
• Inconsistency or deviation practices by industry and that are contrary to the directives
• Details on raw materials, products and by-product and the audit on excise registers and production related documents
• Audit on compliance to pollution board
• Variations in utility and raw material consumption and production from that registered the previous year
• Analytical Quality Control (AQC) methodology adopted
• Check on clean technology usage
• Treatment and disposal of spent caustic wastes
• Membership of industry attached to CETP & TSDF

The audit findings are mentioned in the Environmental Audit Reports and submitted as per the directives.
