  • The role of respirometry in maximising aerobic treatment plant efficiency

    Wastewater treatment plants are coming under increasing pressure to increase their efficiency of operation. There are two objectives in this. The first is to reduce the cost of treatment. The second is a response to new legislation aimed at reducing the carryover of toxic materials to receiving waters. In order to achieve this, it is necessary to focus on the pivotal role of bacterial respiration ...

  • Heavy Industry Plant Wastewater Treatment, Recovery ang Recycle Using Three Membrane Configurations in Combination with Aerobic Treatment

    ABSTRACTIn the late 1990’s a major diesel engine manufacturing plant began evaluation of wastewater treatment technologies that would improve the quality of wastewater discharge, would produce treated effluent of reduced oil and grease, BOD and COD load suitable as feed to their sanitary waste biological treatment plant, and eliminate the costs and risks associated ...

  • Where Is the Most Water Reuse Taking Place?

    Water reuse is becoming increasingly important as water scarcity becomes prevalent throughout the world. Whether it’s referred to as water reuse, water recycling, water reclamation, or another name, the resulting purified wastewater can be used in many applications, both potable and nonpotable. In some places, water reuse has been slow to catch on, particularly because of the so-called ...

  • Sequential anaerobic–aerobic biological treatment of colored wastewaters: case study of a textile dyeing factory wastewater

    In the present study the feasibility of the use of a bacterial batch sequential anaerobic–aerobic process, in which activated sludge was used in both parts of the process, for pretreatment of wastewater generated by a textile dyeing factory has been considered. Activated sludge used in the process was obtained from a municipal wastewater treatment plant and adapted to real dyeing wastewater ...

  • Improving aeration control at the Ljubljana wastewater treatment plant

    This paper describes an improvement to the aeration control at the Ljubljana wastewater treatment plant. Several changes were made to the existing aeration control. An adjustment to the parameters of the common air pressure controller contributes to a more responsive operation of the compressors. The introduction of the air pressure set-point controller adjusts the air pressure in the common air ...

  • Membrane thickening aerobic digestion processes

    Sludge management accounts for approximately 60% of the total wastewater treatment plant expenditure and laws for sludge disposal are becoming increasingly stringent, therefore much consideration is required when designing a solids handling process. A membrane thickening aerobic digestion process integrates a controlled aerobic digestion process with pre-thickening waste activated sludge ...

  • Aerators Enhance Aerobic Digestion Process

    The city of Eden,N.C.,operates an extended aeration process designed for an average flow rate of 13.5 mgd with a mixed liquor suspended solids concentration that typically checks in about 6,000 mg/l. This high biomass concentration is necessary to provide a well-settling sludge and good effluent quality. Further, the plant influent is approximately 40% domestic wastewater and 60% industrial ...

  • Neptune beach wastewater treatment plant case study

    Performance History and Discussion The City of Neptune Beach chose In-Pipe Technology to improve effluent quality and reduce operating expenses at the WWTP. In-Pipe Technology adds high concentrations of live, heterotrophic bacteria into the collection system - transforming it into a pretreatment reactor. As a result, the incoming pollutant load is lower and the effectiveness of the ...

  • Upgrading secondary biological treatment of wastewater using anoxic/aerobic attached growth systems for effluent quality improvement

    A pilot plant was constructed and operated using both Aerobic Submerged Fixed Film (ASFF) and Anoxic/Aerobic Submerged Fixed Film (A/ASFF) processes at different loading rates in the range of 0.03–0.3 g BOD.g-1 BVS.d-1 corresponding to the Hydraulic Retention Times (HRTs) in the range of 0.7 to 8 hr. The results obtained revealed that both the ASFF and the A/ASFF ...
