  • Guidelines for using activated sludge models

    Mathematical modelling of activated sludge systems is used widely for plant design, optimisation, training, controller design and research. The quality of simulation studies varies depending on the project objectives, finances and expertise available. Consideration has to be given to the model accuracy and the amount of time required carrying out a simulation study to produce the desired ...

  • New dimensiong guideline and standard for the activated sludge process

    Since June 2016 a new standard for the design of activated sludge systems is valid. The most significant point is the change of the basic value from BOD to COD. The standard is also the basis for designing SBR-systems. The article discusses main aspects of the new design basis and how AQUA DESIGNER has been modified and adapted to this. In AQUA DESIGNER you can calculate the continuous and ...

  • Understanding the contribution of biofilm in an integrated fixed-film-activated sludge system (IFAS) designed for nitrogen removal

    The objective of this study is to improve knowledge on the integrated fixed-film-activated sludge (IFAS) system designed for nitrogen removal. Biofilm growth and its contribution to nitrification were monitored under various operating conditions in a semi-industrial pilot-scale plant. Nitrification rates were observed in biofilms developed on free-floating media and in activated sludge operated ...

  • Fixed vs. Moving Bed Systems: Aeration and Mixing Efficiency

    The aeration design for a biofilm system, such as moving bed or AccuFAS fixed-film systems, is more complex than a standard activated sludge system. In a biofilm system, the aeration design must satisfy the oxygen demand for required treatment, provide mixing, and control biofilm ...

  • Investigating the Fundimental Basis for Selectors to Improve Activated Sludge Settling

    ABSTRACTAerobic, anoxic, and anaerobic selectors have become popular for controlling filamentous bulking in activated sludge systems; however, selectors are not always successful. Regression analyses of data collected from 44 full-scale wastewater treatment plants, with operating selectors, provided criteria for determining when selectors will and will not be successful. Anoxic selectors do not ...

  • Application of a moving-bed biofilm reactor for sulfur-oxidizing autotrophic denitrification

    Sulfur-oxidizing autotrophic denitrification (SO-AD) was investigated in a laboratory-scale moving-bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) at a sewage temperature of 22 °C. A synthetic wastewater with nitrate, sulfide and thiosulfate was fed into the MBBR. After 20 days' acclimation, the reduced sulfur compounds were completely oxidized and nitrogen removal efficiency achieved up to 82%. The operation ...

  • Progress in sensor technology - progress in process control - Part I: Sensor property investigation and classification

    Abstract: To ensure correctly operating control systems, the measurement and control equipment in WWTPs must be mutually consistent. The dynamic simulation of activated sludge systems could offer a suitable tool for designing and optimising control strategies. Ideal or simplified sensor models represent a limiting factor for comparability with field applications. More realistic sensor models are ...

  • Comprehensive Odor Emissions Study Hall Street Wastewater Treatment Plant Concord, New Hampshire

    ABSTRACTThe operation of the Hall Street wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in Concord, NH has caused the emission of objectionable odors from various liquid and solids treatment processes resulting in periodic odor complaints from its neighbors. The City of Concord retained Fay, Spofford & Thorndike (FST) to conduct a comprehensive odor emissions study at the Hall Street WWTP and to recommend ...

  • New Wastewater Treatment Plants for Lagos - Case Study

    Two SBR plants for 6,000 and 36,000 PE are planned by BITControl for the Lagos State Wastewater Management Office. The implementation of the system is accompanied by an intense schooling of the engineers of the LSWMO. ...

  • Tomato Processor Pilot Bioreactor

    98% Average Reduction in BOD & TSS A tomato processing facility was required by the city to reduce BOD from 4,000 ppm to 200 ppm. Integrated Engineers proposed a small scale Bioreactor to prove the effectiveness of the activated sludge process on the customer’s wastewater as well as establishing the parameters for a full scale system design. The trailer mounted ...
