  • Inclined Plate Settlers to Treat Stormwater Solids

    ABSTRACTIt has been well-documented that, in stormwater runoff, many of the problem pollutants are associated with the particulate fraction. Past characterization of urban runoff and source contributions has shown the following: (a) soil disturbance increased the TSS and turbidity in the runoff; and (b) correlations were observed between TSS and particulate runoff concentrations of chromium, ...

  • Principles of HDD Solids Control & Buyers Guide

    Relative to the use of drilling fluids within the oil & gas industry, the use of drilling fluids within the horizontal directional drilling (“HDD”) industry, is new.   As the use of HDD technology did not become mainstream until the 1980’s, it took another decade before drillers started to consider the use of basic drilling fluids.  Even today, ...

  • Protect Your Respiratory System

    The air around you keeps you alive. But in certain circumstances, it can cause you serious injury, illness or death. To stay alive and healthy, you need air which is clean, free of toxic gases and other contaminants, and contains the right amount of oxygen. Most of the time, the air around you at home, on the street and at work fills the bill. But under certain circumstances, the air contains ...

  • Ion Exchange Systems.

    When properly applied, ion exchange for concentrated ion recovery is by far the best available technology. Where effluent streams can be filtered and ions requiring different regenerants can be segregated, ion exchange is usually the most cost effective and least capital intensive solution. We provide 4 levels of integration to cover most applications and capital budgets. The variations in the ...


  • Application of LCA to support solid waste management policy in Phuket

    Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is employed to evaluate the environmental performance of the existing Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) management system in Phuket and compared with different possible alternative Integrated Waste Management Systems (IWMSs). The results show that the scenario comprising source separation of waste for anaerobic digestion and recycling plus incineration (with energy recovery) ...

  • Building Sustainable Sanitation Systems

    A low cost system of resource management such as composting toilets is helping to mitigate many of Haiti’s social and ecological challenges. The Caribbean Republic of Haiti — the poorest, most environmentally degraded country in the Western Hemisphere with a population of about 10 million — is a case study in forestry and soil fertility mismanagement. A colonial ...

  • The development and application of centrifugal flotation systems in wastewater treatment

    Abstract: Flotation as a wastewater treatment technique is designed to remove all particles generally encountered as very fine emulsions, suspended solids, and colloids from wastewater. Historically, Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) has been used to achieve this removal. More recently, other flotation techniques such as induced air, electro, cavitational, and Centrifugal Flotation Systems (CFS) have ...

  • Disposal options for solid waste of Bangalore city based on its characteristics

    A detailed analysis of Bangalore's solid waste has been done to suggest various management options for safe disposal. It has been observed that Bangalore's solid waste contains a larger proportion of degradable waste compared to many other cities. Based on detailed analysis of available data, it has been suggested that a landfill with a leachate and gas collection system is better than an inert ...

  • Characterisation and settling of solids in an open, grassed, stormwater sewer network detention basin

    ABSTRACTThe objective of the study is to develop new operational management practices for detention tanks during rainfall events in order to limit flooding risk and, at the same time, to reduce pollutant discharges by optimising the settling process. This paper presents the results of the characterisation of settled particles in an open stormwater detention basin with grassed banks and bottom, ...

  • Case study - Thermoteam – Austria - SRF Refining (Solid Recovered Fuels)

    Customer Thermoteam is a joint venture of Lafarge and Saubermacher. The business objective is the production of Solid Recovered Fuels (SRF) at the location of Retznei (South of Styria) close to the cement works of Lafarge in Austria. Thermoteam has capacity and permission to process 99,500 tonnes of waste per year. The input material varies between pre-treated ...

  • The development and application of the hybrid centrifugal - dissolved air flotation system for wastewater treatment

    Abstract Solid/liquid separations are integral part of any wastewater treatment system. Particles heavier than water are commonly separated in sedimentation clarifiers. On the other hand, particles with densities lower than that of water are most often separated with flotation systems. This manuscript describes the development of hybrid centrifugal - dissolved air flotation system. The ...

  • Hazardous waste and not, Baioni-Dicatech system

    The identification, characterization and restoration of contaminated areas now represent a big environmental issue, both at European and national level. In the major industrialized countries the issue of contaminated land has come out in all its gravity in the late seventies when, against a widespread awakening of environmental consciousness, important pollutions events emerged. Consequently, in ...

  • Beta ratios explained and applied to liquid filter selection

    Liquid Filter Beta Ratios: Absolute rated liquid filter selection is tied to the media micron rating, materials of construction, construction design, and particulate removal efficiency filter factor known as its Beta Ratio (Figures 1, and 2). Consider that Engineering and Purchasing usually see absolute rated liquid filter efficiencies from vendor data sheets and quotes listed at 99%, ...

  • Modelling the influence of total suspended solids on E. coli removal in river water

    Following sewer overflows, fecal indicator bacteria enter surface waters and may experience different lysis or growth processes. A 1D mathematical model was developed to predict total suspended solids (TSS) and Escherichia coli concentrations based on field measurements in a large-scale flume system simulating a combined sewer overflow. The removal mechanisms of natural inactivation, UV ...

  • Drilling Mud and Mud Circulation System

    As more utility contractors are moving up to larger rigs, they are also moving toward the use of solids removal ( solid control ) systems. These solid control systems are not stand-alone units. They are part of the drilling fluids system along with the drilling fluid and the fluid pump. ...


  • SRF Refining (Solid Recovered Fuels), Austria - Case Study

    Customer Mullex-Umwelt-Sauberung-GmbH was founded in 1980 and is working in the field of waste collection, waste sorting, waste processing and waste disposal. The company operates at three locations in Styria and currently employs around 90 people. Situation The demand from the main customer of the solid recovered fuel after removal of chlorine from the SRF ...

  • Mesophilic and thermophilic anaerobic digestion of source-sorted municipal solid waste

    A change in existing collection systems for household waste is presently in progress in many Swedish municipalities. The objective is to separate the decomposable fraction from non-biodegradable waste in order to facilitate biological treatment and recycling of nutrients. The main reason for this development is the effort to replace landfilling of nutrient-rich, wet organic waste with sustainable ...
