Real-time Control System for Wastewater Treatment Plants

by AppliTek NV - Environmental Analysis Division     based in Nazareth, BELGIUM

Wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) are subject to large variation in flow and load, not to speak of uncertainties on the composition of the incoming wastewater. On top of that, the activated sludge treatment process, as used by the vast majority of treatment plants, is difficult to control due to the complex behaviour of the biological process. Nevertheless WWTPs are run 24/7, with operators and management challenged to meet ever tightening environmental regulations.

In order to meet the operational demands of modern-day plants, a new control system was developed. Proprietary control algorithms were introduced based on a large set of data from nutrient measurements in various WWTPs. The customer`s benefits are twofold: (1) achieving optimum effuent quality and, at th same time, (2) lowering energy needs and dosing of commidity chemicals.
