The mining industry has the potential to use large amounts of wastewater in its operations. Often times these waste streams contain contaminants that require treatment before the water can be re-used or discharged. Biowater has successfully installed highly efficient biofilm treatment processes including our complete mix fixed film (CMFF®) system to remove BOD/COD, and nitrogen from mining waste streams. Biowater’s technologies, such as our CFIC® process, can produce effluent water quality that is...
They have a high content value for organic material, solids, oils and grease, with the added presence of nitrogen, produced particularly in the cleaning, descaling, peeling and bone extraction process. To avoid the problem of salinity, several components can be made using ASI 314.
NO analyzers for measurement of nitrification processes applied for treating high concentration nitrogen wastewaters by microbial nitric oxide production. Also, the conversion of N-nitrosomines to nitric oxide for the quantification of those compounds in wastewater impacted waters. View Water-Wastewater Measurement Products
Companies and municipalities have to remove nutrients from their effluents - such as nitrogen and phosphate - before they can reuse the water. There are also strict discharge limits on the nutrients levels that must be met. Paques has a number of technologies that can deal with these requirements.
Reliable treatment. Optimised for heavily contaminated landfill leachate. Whether it be household rubbish, construction rubble, contaminated soils, port sludge or waste incineration ash, final storage of these heavily contaminated materials poses a potential groundwater pollution risk from heavy metals, nitrogen bonds or organic substances. Landfill leachate resulting from precipitation on landfill sites.
Most nitrogenous materials in natural waters tend to be converted to nitrate, so all sources of combined nitrogen, particularly organic nitrogen and ammonia, should be considered as potential nitrate sources. Primary sources of organic nitrates include human sewage and livestock manure, especially from feedlots. The primary inorganic nitrates which may contaminate drinking water are potassium nitrate and ammonium nitrate both of which are widely used as fertilizers. According to the Toxics Release Inventory,...
Using Oxygen to Solve Waste Water Problems
Lack of oxygen can cause inadequate purification or even anaerobic decomposition, as well as offensive odors. Injecting oxygen into sludge beds &/or piping allows you to:
* Reduce nitrogen levels
* Meet peak O2 demands
* Have a back up to your aeration system
* Pre-purify waste water
* Control odors
* Deter corrosion damage
* Meet increased requirements regarding waste water purification
Results show that the Algal Turf Scrubber can be designed to meet the most stringent of TMDL objectives. Nonpoint source applications that involve nutrient pollutants are especially well suited for the Algal Turf Scrubber due to the system’s capacity to treat large volumes of water contaminated with relatively low concentrations of pollutants. The Algal Turf Scrubber is unique in its ability to provide cost-effective treatment even when phosphorus concentrations are below 200 ppb and nitrogen levels are...
The solutions based on MBBR technology is mainly used in the following applications:
+ For new plants, especially those requiring a small footprint and easy operation, for BOD/COD and nitrogen removal
+ As a high loading system in front of existing biolog
