  • Sonocatalytic treatment of baker's yeast effluent

    Baker's yeast effluent is a major source of pollution with a high organic load and dark colour. It can be treated by using advanced oxidation processes (AOPs). AOPs, such as ultrasonic irradiation, are ambient temperature processes involving the generation of free radicals. We have investigated sonocatalytic treatment of baker's yeast effluent by using ultrasound. TiO2–ZnO composites were used ...

  • Control Algae and Improve the Water Quality in Waste Stabilization Ponds

    Due to population growth, accelerated urbanisation and economic development, the quantity of waste water generated is increasing globally. Mainly in low-income areas, a large proportion of the waste water is discharged directly in the environment. When the waste water is treated, the treatment plants may not remove certain pollutants that can have a negative impact on the people and ecosystem. ...

  • Wastewater and groundwater

    Nearly 25 percent of the population in the United States—in more than 25 million homes—disposes of wastewater through onsite, or unsewered, systems that return treated effluent to the ground. This is an important public health issue because many of those same homes use wells that rely on groundwater for the drinking water supply. With ...

  • Anaerobic effluent treatment at a chemical industrial complex

    In order to test the feasibility of anaerobic treatment of an effluent from a chemical factory producing intermediates for synthetic fibres, test work with a 45 l UASB pilot plant was conducted. After conducting a successful pilot study a full-scale anaerobic effluent treatment plant including a 400 m3 combined buffer/pre-acidification tank and a 990 m3 Biopaq®-UASB reactor was constructed. The ...

  • Treatment for woolscouring effluent through bioacidification by acidithiobacillus thiooxidans

    In this study, a promising process called bioacidification was used to remove organic pollutant from Woolscouring Effluent (WSE) by emulsion destabilisation. Chemostat experiments of bioacidification treatment inoculated with Acidithiobacillus thiooxidans were operated at high wastewater recycle ratios to achieve shorter Hydraulic Retention Time (HRT). Results exhibited high COD removal ...

  • Soil aquifer treatment using advanced primary effluent

    Soil aquifer treatment (SAT) using primary effluent (PE) is an attractive option for wastewater treatment and reuse in many developing countries with no or minimal wastewater treatment. One of the main limitations of SAT of PE is rapid clogging of the infiltration basin due to high suspended solid concentrations. Some pre-treatment of PE before infiltration is likely to reduce this limitation, ...

  • Final effluent monitors protect wastewater treatment efficiency

    Southern Water operates 370 wastewater treatment plants (WWTP), many of which are unmanned for most of the time and most have numeric environmental permits, so a network of online monitors has been established to improve treatment and protect discharge compliance. This has involved the installation of final effluent monitors at over 300 sites in a programme that has lasted for more than ten ...


  • Use of ozone in the treatment of cyanide containing effluents

    The treatment of effluents of the gold and silver cyanidation process is one of the main problems that the precious metals industry faces. These effluents contain variable quantities of free cyanide, weak complexed cyanide, strong complexed cyanide and thiocyanate. Different methods are used for the removal of cyanide but most of the times the consumption of reagents raises the operation cost to ...

  • Dairy Effluent Treatment - Total Phosphorus Monitoring

    Dairy Crest's Davidstow site operates a sophisticated effluent treatment plant to ensure that the local aquatic environment is protected. The treatment plant has been upgraded to keep pace with the expansion of the factory and a number of our monitoring instruments have been employed to make the operation of the plant as efficient as possible. During 2011, the Environment Agency approached Dairy ...

  • A hybrid flotation: microfiltration cell for effluent treatment

    The investigated hybrid cell combines the advantages of both flotation and membrane filtration, while overcoming their limitations and having as outcome clean water from wastewater. The specific objective of the current paper was to apply the process for the efficient separation of effluents containing toxic metals (zinc cations and chromate anions). The main examined parameters were the sorbent ...

  • Effect of ozone on secondary effluent treatment for reuse in agriculture

    The results of secondary effluents ozonation from domestic sewages treatment plants in Havana, Cuba are presented. The ozone effect on some physico-chemical parameters was determined. The ozone gas concentration is the parameter, which exerts the greatest influence on the ozone transferred. The results indicated that ozonation of secondary effluents is a safe disinfection alternative for ...

  • Treatment of distillery anaerobic effluent in a hybrid biological reactor

    The treatability of anaerobic effluent from a molasses-based distillery was studied in a shaft-type hybrid bioreactor under purely suspended growth and hybrid system containing 5 mm tyre-tube beads. The Ks, k, Y and k found as 111.29 mg/l, 0.026/h, 0.4607 and 0.0040/h respectively. The maximum COD removal was 51.7% at a loading rate of 5.250 kg d−1 m−3. The overall removal rate was 0.0431, ...

  • An innovative design for an effluent treatment plant case study

    A well-known cereal manufacturer has a production plant that produces coated cereals. The production process results in a high level of COD being discharged to the waste stream. For both environmental and economic reasons they needed to reduce the strength of this effluent. Cleveland Biotech Ltd were asked to advise on possible solutions to this effluent problem. A meeting took place in February ...
