    Wastewater solutions for ballast water treatment monitoring

    Problem: To operate safely and efficiently, cargo ships take in water to provide stability. This water, referred to as ballast, carries all kinds of bacteria, microbes and micro-algae. The ballast water must inevitably be discharged when the ship takes on cargo, often thousands of kilometers away from the port of origin, transferring pathogens and aquatic organisms that can cause serious environmental, economic and health problems.

    Advanced Ultrafiltration Modules

    The Q-SEP Ultrafiltration membranes incorporate high-strength, hollow fibers that deliver superior performance without the risk of fiber breaks. They are made from a hydrophilic polyether sulfone material with excellent low fouling characteristics. These hollow fiber membranes operate under a pressurized inside-out flow configuration for superior performance. These hollow fiber UF membranes offer reliable removal of turbidity, microorganisms & viruses. Turbidity can be reduced to less than 0.05 NTU. Typically, a 6-log removal for bacteria, giardia & cryptosporidium, while a 4-log removal for viruses, can be achieved. The Q-SEP modules contain an advanced UF fiber, prepared by an innovative patented cloud point precipitation method. This method ensures a very uniform pore size distribution and high pore density in the membrane. As a result, the product water quality from the modules is significantly better than the quality from conventional UF modules at a very operating pres

  • Wastewater treatment for the paper sector

    Paper companies consume large amounts of water in the production process and hence, produce high dumped flow rates. This type of industry also tends to produce the development of filamentous bacteria. The effluent to be treated from wood industries has high loads with elevated solid matter content.

    Advanced water treatment equipments for deionization

    Deionized water, also known as demineralized water (DI water or de-ionized water; can also be spelled deionised water), is water that has had its mineral ions removed, such as cations from sodium, calcium, iron, copper and anions such as chloride and bromide. Deionization is a physical process which uses specially-manufactured ion exchange resins which bind to and filter out the mineral salts from water. Because the majority of water impurities are dissolved salts, deionization produces a high purity water that is generally similar to distilled water, and this process is quick and without scale buildup. However, deionization does not significantly remove uncharged organic molecules, viruses or bacteria, except by incidental trapping in the resin. Specially made strong base anion resins can remove Gram-negative bacteria. Deionization can be done continuously and inexpensively using electrodeionization.

  • Ozone/UV systems for drinking water treatment

    Multiple treatment reactions and benefits are obtained at ozonation, all at the same time. Ozone based advanced oxidation processes are important because of reactions with organic molecules that are not readily oxidized by ozone. One challenge beverage suppliers face is the need to deliver a product free of bacteria and with extended shelf life. Because of its powerful disinfectant properties, environmentally clean treatment process and its oxidative ability, ozone has become the technology of choice among water bottlers worldwide.

  • Wastewater treatment solutions for anaerobic sludge digestion sector

    Anaerobic digestion is a series of processes in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen, used for industrial or domestic purposes to manage waste and/or to release energy. It is widely used as part of the process to treat wastewater, like Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) reactors. As part of an integrated waste management system, anaerobic digestion reduces the emission of landfill gas into the atmosphere. Anaerobic digestion is widely used as a renewable energy source because the process produces a methane and carbon dioxide rich biogas suitable for energy production, helping to replace fossil fuels. The nutrient-rich digestate which is also produced can be used as fertilizer. The digestion process begins with bacterial hydrolysis of the input materials in order to break down insoluble organic polymers such as carbohydrates and make them available for other bacteria. Acidogenic bacteria then convert the sugars and amino acids into carbon dioxide, hydrogen, ammonia, and organic acids. Acetogenic bacteria then convert these resulting organic acids into acetic acid, along with additional ammonia, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide. Finally, methanogens convert these products to methane and carbon dioxide.

  • Ozone Water Treatment for Activated Sludge Process Plants

    Ozone breaks up filaments and improves settling characteristics of the sludge... Filamentous sludge is a common problem at activated sludge plants. With ozonation of the return sludge flow it is possible to reduced the amount of filamentous bacteria in the sludge and significantly increased the settling properties of the sludge.This in turn means better performance of the activated sludge process. When a bioreactor is connected to the sludge line the removal of the damaging filamentous bacteria means higher quality sludge in the bioreactor, which leads to higher biogas production.

    algae control in drinking water plants

    By controlling algae, cyanobacteria and fouling LG Sonic can efficiently reduce taste and odor problems in a treatment plant. The performance of a drinking water treatment plant is consistent with the amount ol contamination in the water. Growth of algae and other fouling in and before a treatment plant can cause various problems within the process. In general, these issues are related with taste or odor of the water. Growth of algae, cyanobacteria and bacteria within the basins of the plant itself, increase the demand of chemicals or filtration and in turn creating problems with THM (trihalomethane) formation. Other common issues are growth of toxin and geosmin producing cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) within the intake reservoir or dam. These molecules give the water an unpleasant `earthy ` taste.

  • Waste water respirometry solutions for toxicity testing

    If industrial wastewater entering a treatment works contains toxic components the rate of biodegradation will be inhibited or stop completely. This can result in failed consents and will certainly give rise to operational problems. Visible indications include deflocculation, bulking and the appearance of filamentous bacteria. Sometimes, there are no visible effects. When the sludge bacteria are inhibited, there is the possibility of toxicity carryover in the effluent that is discharged to receiving waters. With new environmental legislation being introduced, worldwide, to protect the natural environment, toxin discharge is now a serious concern for treatment plant managers.

  • Waste water respirometry solutions for toxicity based consents

    Water companies, water authorities or publicly-owned treatment works (POTW) need to have some knowledge of the composition of the wastes they it receive. In addition to testing for ammonia and BOD or COD levels, treatment works can license industrial discharges on the basis of concentrations of some of the known toxic compounds. However, it is recognised that very many non-regulated toxic materials still enter the treatment works and reduce the efficiency of biodegradation, and may cause toxic shock. The way is now open for more widespread use of direct toxicity tests as a basis for toxicity-based consents. Samples of the industrial effluent are collected at source, for testing on the actual bacteria of the receiving activated sludge. The tests used are the Respiration Inhibition Test and the Nitrification Inhibition Test. Note that this approach mirrors that of the regulators of discharges to receiving waters, who are now using direct toxicity tests (DTA) or whole effluent toxicity tests (WET tests) in order to protect the receiving environment.
