Biowater have knowledge and competence to help in designing and building new systems and upgrade existing infrastructure based on biotechnology as CFIC, MBBR and IFAS solutions.
The Company offers cost-effective solution that allows municipal plants to both increase their treatment capacity and upgrade the effluent quality with minimal civil works.
The brewing process generally generates unique, high-strength waste water as a by-product. The waste water typically has a high concentration of Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) form the carbohydrates and protein used in brewing beer. Brewery waste water usually has a temperature of > 25 °C.
Due to the diversity of products in the beverage industry, there is also a great variation in waste water composition (flow and load) from this type of industry. This requires special attention and tailor made solutions for the design of a waste water plant for this industry.
The first UASB pilot plant was installed in the 1970’s at a beet sugar company in The Netherlands (CSM suiker). Thereafter, a large number of full scale plants were installed throughout The Netherlands at sugar refineries, potato starch processing plants, and other food industries, as well as paper recycling plants.
The pulp and paper industry generates large volumes of highly heterogeneous waste waters containing compounds from wood or other raw materials, process chemicals and compounds formed during processing.
A well-designed wastewater plant starts with your effluent requirements and an energy-efficient biological process. WesTech has multiple biological process options to match your application and preference. From trickling filters to oxidation ditches, WesTech`s biological process equipment will give you the effluent quality you need and the foundation for a successful wastewater plant.
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...
AQQA is used in industrial wastewater treatment to: separate the sludge from the clear water in membrane bio reactors. constitute the final filtration of the effluent of standard sewage treatment plants (tertiary treatment). keep specialized bacteria in the system, that can biologically degrade organic matter. enable Zero Liquid Discharge: prefiltration for reverse osmosis systems.
Sulfide Odor Control
Sulfide is found throughout the environment as a result of both natural and industrial processes. Most sulfide found in nature was produced biologically (under anaerobic conditions) and occurs as free hydrogen sulfide (H2S) - characterized by its rotten egg odor. We are most likely to encounter biogenic H2S in sour groundwaters, swamps and marshes, natural gas deposits, and sewage collection/treatment systems. Manmade sources of H2S typically occur as a result of natural materials containing...
Wastewater treatment plants can on occasion experience problems with settling of the biological sludge in the secondary clarifier. Often this problem is caused by the abundant presence of filamentous microorganisms.
We can treat the air streams from waste management plants, MBT (Mechanical Biological Treatment) reception and composting areas, Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTP), Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) Plants, gasification of waste, syngas, torrefaction, gas engines and biogas upgrading.
In waste management plants and WWTP, we remove the odors that may be causing a nuisance to neighbors, with bioreactors using Biomass to degrade odorous components and where odors are particularly intractable or VOC emissions higher,...
The waste-sludge generated by primary and secondary (biological) treatment of municipal & industrial wastewater needs to be managed at every plant big or small. In the larger sewage treatment facilities waste sludge thickening and dewatering has always been assumed a necessity without the planners and designers thinking twice about the cost requirements.
In the smaller and decentralized STP’s where available investment is always lower, the on-site waste-sludge management (thickening & dewatering) maybe compromis...
Problem: A significant portion of the operational costs of a conventional municipal wastewater treatment plant employing an aerobic biological treatment unit comes from electricity costs associated with aeration. In many cases, the aeration rates are kept at the maximum level to ensure that the plant’s effluent is in compliance with the regulations. The critical parameter for regulatory purposes and treatment efficiency, BOD, takes 5 days to measure through standard methods providing almost no value to the...
