  • Evaluation of passive reduction of nitrate from greenhouse effluent by planted bioreactors

    A number of pilot-scale gravel and wood-chip hybrid bioreactors planted with select species, together with unplanted units, were evaluated for their nutrient removal capabilities from the typical greenhouse effluent with high levels of nitrate and salts. Two levels of nutrient solution (high and low loading: HL/LL) were prepared to simulate the typical characteristics of the greenhouse ...

  • Influence of shear on nitrification rates in a membrane bioreactor

    Grundfos BioBooster (GBB) installed and operated a membrane bioreactor (MBR) test plant in 2012. During the period it became evident that the nitrification rate was lower than expected and a study was carried out to investigate the possible reasons for the observed low-nitrification rate. Tests were conducted at a pilot plant and the effect of shear from the BioBooster membrane system and the ...

  • Flux-step method for the assessment of operational conditions in a submerged membrane bioreactor

    A flux-step method was used for monitoring the pressure variation in a solids separation membrane at different operating conditions. A submerged membrane bioreactor pilot plant, used during the short-term tests, was used to purify actual restaurant wastewater. The influence of membrane backwash and relaxation on the variation of pressure variation was also evaluated. In order to reduce the ...

  • Ski Resort MBR WWTP: Challenges of Year-Round Operation with Very High Flow and Load Variations Between Seasons

    The information presented in this paper is developed based on the Stevens Pass Wastewater District Membrane BioReactor Treatment Plant. The main objective is to discuss the unique process issues of ski area facilities which are faced with seasonal flow and load variations: (i) how to handle these variations within the system, (ii) how to grow enough biomass before the ...

  • Elimination of trace organics in an MBR/RO system for water reuse

    An intensive programme for detection of trace organics was performed in a membrane bioreactor (MBR) plant in Almuñécar (south of Spain) over 1 year. The compounds investigated included 15 pharmaceutically active compounds, 12 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and eight other compounds (nonylphenols, linear alkylbenzene sulphonates and phthalates). The MBR operated with two lines in ...

  • Enhanced Biological Phosphorus Removal Performance of the Traverse City MBR

    ABSTRACT The Traverse City (Michigan) Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant has been successfully converted from a conventional plant into a membrane bioreactor-based facility. When commissioned in July 2004, the plant was the largest Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) facility in North America (32,000 m3/day, 8.5 mgd, during the maximum month). The facility is designed to achieve strict effluent ...

  • Identification and characteristic analysis of microorganisms in an integrated bioreactor for odours treatment

    Odours containing some hydrophilic and hydrophobic compounds could be efficiently removed by the degradation of bacteria and fungi in an integrated bioreactor. Microorganisms from the integrated bioreactor were observed and identified. The amount, species and distribution characteristics of the microorganisms depended on the properties of the compounds being treated, the concentration and the ...

  • SANASA Capivari II – the first full-scale municipal membrane bioreactor in Latin America

    The macro region of Campinas (Brazil) is rapidly evolving with new housing developments and industries, creating the challenge of finding new ways to treat wastewater to a quality that can be reused in order to overcome water scarcity problems. To address this challenge, SANASA (a publicly owned water and wastewater concessionaire from Campinas) has recently constructed the ‘EPAR (Water ...

  • Effect of sensor location on controller performance in a wastewater treatment plant

    Complete mixing is hard to achieve in large bioreactors in wastewater treatment plants. This often leads to a non-uniform distribution of components such as dissolved oxygen and, hence, the process rates depend on them. Furthermore, when these components are used as input for a controller, the location of the sensor can potentially affect the control action. In this contribution, the effect of ...
