  • Advanced Lagoon Treatment Technologies for Wastewater Treatment

    Lagoon-based wastewater treatment systems are popular around the world for their simplicity and cost-effectiveness. However, these systems are unable to reliably remove biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and total suspended solids (TSS) to less than 30 mg/L or achieve nitrification during winter months in cold climates. Several innovative modifications have been developed, which have the potential ...

  • Achieving Advanced Wastewater Treatment Standards

    Integrated Fixed-film Activated Sludge (IFAS) systems is a hybrid system consisting of both suspended and fixed biomass growth, and it is achieved by incorporating a media that support biofilms in existing aeration basin. By promoting the growth of both carbonaceous-removing and nitrifying bacteria, an integrated fixed-film activated sludge (IFAS) process can improve effluent quality without ...


  • Immersed Membrane Technology for Advanced Wastewater Treatment & Water Reuse

    A significant segment of the North American population is unserviced by municipal wastewater systems and, with the seemingly, unending growth of residential communities, commercial complexes, industrial parks and support infrastructure, this situation is unlikely to change in the foreseeable future. Traditionally serviced by on-site wastewater treatment units, and often relying on groundwater ...


  • Removal of organic wastewater contaminants in septic systems using advanced treatment technologies

    The detection of pharmaceuticals and other organic wastewater contaminants (OWCs) in ground water and surface-water bodies has raised concerns about the possible ecological impacts of these compounds on nontarget organisms. On-site wastewater treatment systems represent a potentially significant route of entry for organic contaminants to the environment. In this study, effluent samples were ...

  • Determination of the ultrasonic effectiveness in advanced wastewater treatment

    Biological treatment is the most commonly applied method for treatment of wastewaters. However, biological treatment can be inhibited by bacteriotoxic or persistent pollutants present in wastewater (Lifka et at., 2003). As a result, this technology may be incapable of reducing the levels of contaminants below which they are not considered as a potential threat to public health. Therefore, new ...

  • Application of vibration milling for advanced wastewater treatment and excess sludge reduction

    As a new sludge reduction technology with a phosphorus removal mechanism, a vibration milling technology that uses iron balls have been applied to the wastewater treatment process. Three anaerobic–aerobic cyclic activated sludge processes: one without sludge disintegration; one disintegrated sludge by ozonation; and the other disintegrated sludge with the vibrating ball mill were compared. ...

  • Achieving limits of technology (lot) effluent nitrogen and phosphorus removal at the river oaks two-stage advanced wastewater treatment plant

    Due to unprecedented population growth in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Hillsborough County, FL, developed an aggressive capital improvement program, including a 3-phase construction program to increase the capacity of the River Oaks Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant (AWTP) from 3 mgd to 10 mgd while improving plant performance to significantly reduce the nutrient discharges to Tampa Bay. ...

  • Comparing environmental impacts of tertiary wastewater treatment technologies for advanced phosphorus removal and disinfection with life cycle assessment

    Different technologies for tertiary wastewater treatment are compared in their environmental impacts with life cycle assessment (LCA). Targeting very low phosphorus concentration (50–120 μg/L) and seasonal disinfection of wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) secondary effluent, this LCA compares high-rate sedimentation, microsieve, dual media filtration (all with UV disinfection), and ...

  • Synergistic application of advanced primary and secondary wastewater treatment systems

    Published in Water and Waste Digest membrane issue, November 2008 Miroslav Colic; Chief Scientist, Clean Water Technology Inc., Los Angeles, CA To be published in Water and Waste Digest later this year The increased regulatory pressures and demand for reused water stimulated development of several new wastewater technologies in the last decade. Advanced treatment systems are ...

  • Compact solutions for advanced wastewater treatment aiming to recover and reuse

    The environmental pollution caused from unregulated raw sewage discharge coming from small municipalities, remote communities, small housing complexes, tourist facilities, camps, factories, harbors and other similar sources that until now was difficult to construct suitable Treatment Facilities is quite extensive in many areas and is now the time for the authorities to take action. The necessity ...

  • Advanced pretreatment enables MBBR treatment of high strength candy manufacturing wastewater

    Abstract Bimbo – Ricolino candy manufacturing plant in Mexico City was discharging wastewater with high amount of fats oil and grease and dissolved sugars. Local regulatory agency requested that suspended solids, oil and grease and dissolved BOD be almost completely removed prior to discharge to municipal plant. The available real estate in Mexico City was very limited. A multistep ...

  • Electrocoagulation Wastewater Treatment: Specialized Technology to meet the needs of food & beverage wastewater

    The effects of water scarcity and stricter environmental regulations placed on water usage are increasing the cost of using freshwater globally. The consequences of these increasing costs on food and beverage companies are twofold, since the companies are charged for both the water that they utilize in their processes and on their wastewater discharge. Additionally, the food and beverage industry ...

  • Small Community Treatment Plant Expansion While In Operation Using Advanced Technology

    The Viejas Indian Reservation in Eastern San Diego County owns and operates a gaming casino and outlet shopping mall that recently underwent a large expansion. At the same time, the Viejas Reservation Tribal Government completed the infrastructure project to provide a new water supply distribution and wastewater collection system to serve the entire reservation in addition to the casino and ...

  • Control of Wastewater Treatment Plants

    Instrumentation, control and automation (ICA) of wastewater treatment systems and sewer networks have attracted much attention since the early 1970s. The developments during the last four decades in on-line instrumentation, computer technology, process understanding and subsequent model development, and control methods have been powerful driving forces for advanced control making ICA ever more ...

  • Wastewater Treatment & Recycle

    Fresh water is a scarce commodity; this fact is well acknowledged by one and all. People at all levels be it general public, governmental bodies, and industries understand the implications of good quality water availability in terms of quantity, cost and wastage. As a consequence, there is a growing consensus on wastewater treatment for recycle/reuse. This paper briefly describes the treatment ...

  • Advanced Water Treatment Technologies May Bring Purified Water to San Diego

    'In four years, half of San Diego may be filling its glasses with tap water that once ran through its toilets,' reported the San Diego Union-Tribune recently. A plan to mix 'repurified water' with the City's raw drinking water reservoir could become a reality, thanks to the wonders of water treatment technology. Such a possibility elicits various reactions including disgust, marvel and fear. ...

  • Wastewater Treatment in Turbo Mode

    Sulzer turbocompressors type ABS HST are successful in wastewater treatment. Today, 2000 units are installed around the world—for example, in municipal plants like in the city of Sögel, Germany.

  • Wastewater-Primary Treatment

    Primary Treatment is defined as a wastewater treatment process that takes place in a rectangular or circular tank and allows those substances in wastewater that readily settle or float to be separated from the water being treated. This process achieves solids separation. The solids readily available to settle to achieve sedimentation will do so in a settling tank referred as a clarifier. On the ...
