  • The Benefits of Biological Treatment for Drinking Water

    The biological treatment of drinking water is undertaken using both organic and inorganic contaminants, and can be used to treat groundwater and surface water. These contaminants, contrary to what the name implies, are applied to strip away the factors that make the water unsafe for drinking until it is potable—meaning drinkable. If you would like to learn more about the benefits of ...

  • Biological Wastewater Treatment

    Untitled Document The use of microorganisms to remove contaminants from wastewater is effective and widespread. To choose the right system from the many options offered, ...


  • What is biological wastewater treatment?

    Biological wastewater treatment harnesses the action of bacteria and other microorganisms to clean water Biological wastewater treatment is a process that seems simple on the surface since it uses natural processes to help with the decomposition of organic substances, but in fact, it’s a complex, not completely understood process at the intersection of biology and ...

  • Mechanical biological treatment trends

    Composting mixed municipal solid waste has a long tradition in Germany. In 1953, the first large-scale facilities in Baden-Baden and Blaubeuren started operating, followed later by plants in Heidelberg, Duisburg and other locations across the western part of Germany. Facilities were being opened to provide alternatives to landfilling MSW, and to produce compost for agricultural use. The quality ...

  • Different Biological Water Filtration Systems

    Do you know what’s in your water? Most people don’t. It’s recommended that you drink at least a half-gallon of water each day. If it’s not purified or filtered, that water could be causing unseen damage to your body. Arsenic, salmonella, streptococcus, and influenza viruses could all be present in your tap water. There are many different forms of biological filtration that ...

  • Biological Filtration: Future of Drinking Water Treatment

    Water is essential for all human life on the planet, but the fresh water supply is limited and is susceptible to being contaminated by all manner of toxins like arsenic, calcium, and mercury. There are many techniques to remove contaminants, including popular methods that add chemicals to balance others out, but one that not many people understand is biological water system filtration. ...

  • Beginner´s Guide to Biological Treatment of Water

    Water treatment systems make safe and civilized life possible for people of all ages. Access to clean, reliable, and safe water is one of the first building blocks of a good social system. That is why experts have developed advanced and reliable ways to remove harmful substances from the water supply, including fecal matter, bacteria, arsenic, and other dangerous or even poisonous matter.   ...

  • Biological water treatment effective in Saddle Lake

    Three transparent pipes connected to a network of hoses and gauges stretch from the floor to the 14-foot ceiling in a back room of the Saddle Lake water treatment plant. Water burbles through the pipes, mixing with a material that looks like black sand. The particles are actually expanded clay aggregates that provide the surface needed for water-cleaning bacteria to live on. The bacteria remove ...

  • Diseases That Biological Water Treatment Can Prevent

    Biological water treatment is essential because drinking contaminated water can cause illness. There are many types of contaminants, and the most common are human and animal feces, agricultural run-off, and chemicals. These contain pathogens, which cause water-borne diseases. These pathogens can quickly spread via different methods. Here are some of the most common diseases that can be ...

  • Strategies for the reduction of Legionella in biological treatment systems

    A community-wide outbreak of Legionnaire's disease occurred in Warstein, Germany, in August 2013. The epidemic strain, Legionella pneumophila Serogruppe 1, was isolated from an industrial wastewater stream entering the municipal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in Wartein, the WWTP itself, the river Wäster and air/water samples from an industrial cooling system 3 km downstream of the WWTP. ...

  • Solutions for Safe Drinking Water Through Biological Water Treatments

    Most people across the U.S. expect to turn on their faucets and have immediate access to clean drinking water. The truth is, it wasn’t until 1974 that Congress passed the Safe Water Drinking Act with the goal of regulating the nation’s public water supply. Over the years, the SWDA has been amended to include water sources as well, such as rivers, lakes, springs and groundwater wells ...

  • Making your drinking water safe with biological water treatment

    As society becomes more environmentally conscious, it is important that your community is provided with its natural necessities in an eco-friendly manner. One of these natural necessities includes adequate drinking water. Many companies use chemical treatment methods to help cleanse and purify water resources, but such methods are often at the expense of your local environment. Some water ...

  • In Situ Biological Treatment for Ground Water, Surface Water, and Leachate

    The main advantage of in situ treatment is that it allows ground water to be treated without being brought to the surface, resulting in significant cost savings. In situ treatment, however, generally requires longer time periods, and there is less certainty about the uniformity of treatment because of the variability in aquifer characteristics and because the efficacy of the process is more ...

  • Treating Your Water with a Biological Filtration System

    Poor-quality drinking water can be an enormous hazard to your health. News stories in recent years have reported experiences of unfortunate individuals who have unknowingly consumed tainted or otherwise unsafe drinking water that included high levels of lead, calcium, arsenic, and other chemicals that have serious negative health effects. Before you take another sip of your water supply, consider ...

  • How to Choose the Right Biological Water Filtration System

    There are many different biological treatments of water available. They’re all similar in a number of ways, but share key differences in the specific ways the water is filtered. This article is an informative breakdown of all the different biological water treatment systems that are available and how they ...

  • Unpleasant Odors Successfully Removed Using Biological Waste Water Treatment

    System designed by Dresden DAS Environmental Expert successfully treats landfill leachate from hazardous waste landfill in Grumbach, Germany DAS Environmental Expert has designed a system for the treatment of landfill leachate that currently treats the wastewaters of the AMAND Umwelttechnik Grumbach ...

  • Assessment of biologically active GAC and complementary technologies for gray water treatment

    The reuse of gray water for applications ranging from irrigation to showering is a viable means to reduce net water demand when water supplies are stressed. The objective of this study was to investigate the treatment of gray water using biologically active granular-activated carbon (GAC) and complementary technologies. Technologies were challenged individually or in combination using a ...

  • Ex Situ Biological Treatment for Groundwater, Surface Water, and Leachate

    The main advantage of ex situ treatment is that it generally requires shorter time periods, and there is more certainty about the uniformity of treatment because of the ability to monitor and continuously mix the groundwater. However, ex situ treatment requires pumping of groundwater, leading to increased costs and engineering for equipment, possible permitting, and material handling. ...

  • In Situ Biological Treatment for Soil, Sediment, and Sludge

    The main advantage of in situ treatment is that it allows soil to be treated without being excavated and transported, resulting in potentially significant cost savings. However, in situ treatment generally requires longer time periods, and there is less certainty about the uniformity of treatment because of the variability in soil and aquifer characteristics and because the efficacy of the ...

  • Enhancing Biological Nutrient Reduction in Advanced Individual Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems

    ABSTRACTAdvanced onsite systems need to continue to improve wastewater treatment through nutrient reduction. Some advanced onsite systems have been shown to reduce nutrients significantly. However, with modifications, these systems can reduce total inorganic nitrogen (TIN) to an even greater degree, and nitrate to levels below federal drinkingwater standards. INTRODUCTIONNitrogen compounds in ...
