This paper presents an overview of the history, current status and trend of using membranes for wastewater reclamation and reuse in the petrochemical and petroleum refining (petro) industries. Membrane processes, including microfiltration (MF), ultrafiltration (UF), nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO) are becoming popular treatment methods in water and wastewater treatment and reuse. A limited number of successful domestic and international projects in the past 10 years have proven the viability of using membranes to treat and reclaim petro wastewater for reuse. The applications have included using membrane filters in membrane bioreactors (MBR), metals (e.g., selenium) removal, and tertiary treatment for RO pretreatment in water reuse. This paper presents a list of the existing installations and several representative case studies of wastewater treatment and reuse in the petro industries. Several upcoming projects are also discussed.
