  • Impact of some herbicides on the biomass activity in biological treatment plants and biodegradability enhancement by a photo-Fenton process

    In recent years, the use of agrochemicals has increased because they are essential for profitable agricultural production. Herbicides are heavily demanded compounds and among these, the most marketed are 2,4-D, atrazine and acetochlor. They have characteristics that can cause problems to humans and the environment. Therefore, it is necessary to design systems that can reduce these compounds to ...

  • Radionuclides in wastewater treatment plants: monitoring of Sicilian plants

    Three Sicilian wastewater treatment plants were monitored to assess the occurrence and the behaviour of radionuclides. Two sampling campaigns (screening and long-term) were carried out during which liquid and solid samples have been analysed. It was found that 131I mostly occurred in the samples analysed during the screening campaign (43% of the analysed samples contained 131I). ...

  • Anaerobic-aerobic treatment of toxic pulp effluents with biomass, immobilised on LEVAPOR carrier

    1. The problem Effluents of pulp mills using chlorine for pulp bleaching do contain several, under aerobic conditions only weakly degradable (35-45%) toxic chloroorganic pollutants. 2. The solution Preliminary biotretment tests under anaerobic conditions, using specially adapted microorganisms, immobilised on adsorbing, porous LEVAPOR carrier showed a remarkably ...

  • The Secret to Optimizing Solids Inventory in Wastewater Treatment Plants

    A common problem in wastewater treatment plants in Australia is that generally they hold excessive amounts of solids. In fact this problem is common worldwide.  However, LuminUltra’s 2nd Generation ATP. While traditional operating methods tend to rely on TSS and/or VSS measurements these often detect more than just living biomass. For example, TSS takes in to account living ...

  • CH#831 - Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plant

    Introduction The Wastewater Treatment Plant is a rotating biological contactor treatment process preceded by bar screening, grit removal and primary settling. Subsequent to the secondary treatment process, the flow stream enters a chlorine contact tank and then goes to the receiving stream. The program study was started on March 4th. The objectives were a recovery from filamentous infestation, ...
