The neutralization system is designed to collect the acid and caustic regeneration waste prior to discharge to the sea or another outlet. Facilities are provided to add acid and caustic to produce a neutral wastewater stream. The neutralization basin has two separate chambers, each designed to hold regeneration waste from three regenerations of cation exchangers, three regenerations of anion exchangers, and one regeneration of condensate polisher. Also used in neutralization are a 98% sulfuric acid and 50% caustic solution for ion exchange regeneration.
