  • Municipal Wastewater

    Municipal wastewater namely sewage is generated by residential, institutional, commercial and industrial establishments. It includes household waste liquid from toilets,baths,showers,kitchens, and sinks drained into sewers. In many areas, sewage also includes liquid waste from industry and commerce. The separation and draining of household waste into greywater and blackwater is becoming more ...

  • Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) production from sludge and municipal wastewater treatment

    Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are biodegradable polyesters with comparable properties to some petroleum-based polyolefins. PHA production can be achieved in open, mixed microbial cultures and thereby coupled to wastewater and solid residual treatment. In this context, waste organic matter is utilised as a carbon source in activated sludge biological treatment for biopolymer synthesis. Within the ...

  • Cellulose recovery from municipal wastewater

    During Aquatech 2015 the Dutch technology developer Brightwork set in the spotlight the recovery of cellulose from waste water. The project Cellulose Assisted Dewatering of Sludge (CADoS) aims at separating cellulose fibres from toilet paper from waste water using finescreening technology. After separation the fibres serve as a filter aid for effective dewatering of biological sludge. The ...

  • Why municipal wastewater treatment is important?

    Municipal Wastewater Treatment is the process of ejecting the harmful pollutants from wastewater. The main source of pollutants is the domestic use. The pollutants are treated by various methods like Physical, Chemical, and Biological process. The practice of municipal wastewater treatment is best encouraged these days. This treated resource is best for utilizing in raising the ...

  • Quantifying Sludge Production in Municipal Treatment Plants

    ABSTRACT This paper addresses the issue of sludge production in plants treating municipal wastewater. The historical understanding and quantification of sludge production in activated sludge systems is reviewed briefly. An important factor is the selection of three parameters used in the estimation of sludge production (and carbonaceous oxygen requirements). These are the yield coefficient ...

  • Otis, MA municipal wastewater treatment plant information

    Small and rural communities generally find it difficult to assemble the resources to develop a traditional wastewater infrastructure.  Yet, without infrastructure it is difficult to enhance property values and economic development.  Decentralized wastewater treatment systems represent a low cost, low impact and high benefit solution.  Employing modular systems whose processes are ...

  • Implications of nutrient removal and biomass production by native and augmented algal populations at a municipal wastewater treatment plant

    Algal monocultures (Chlorella sorokiniana and Botryococcus braunii) and algal communities native to clarifiers of a wastewater treatment plant were batch cultivated in (1) clarified effluent following a biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) removal reactor post-BOD removal clarified effluent (PBCE), (2) clarified effluent following a nitrification reactor post-nitrification ...

  • Integrated Anaerobic and Aerobic Processes for Treatment of Municipal Wastewater

    ABSTRACTIn this study, integrated anaerobic and aerobic treatment processes for municipal wastewater treatment were investigated for its feasibility to replace the existing conventional activated sludge process. Three types of anaerobic systems − anaerobic sludge blanket, anaerobic sequencing batch reactor and anaerobic filter, as the pretreatment step were studies. High solids and organics ...

  • Risk assessment of treated municipal wastewater reuse in Sicily

    In Italy, the restrictive approach for treated wastewater reuse in agriculture has led to some difficulties in promoting this practice. In order to assess the health risk associated with the use of wastewater in agriculture, an experiment was conducted in an open field near the constructed wetland (CW) system of San Michele di Ganzaria (Eastern Sicily), during the irrigation seasons ...

  • Cost Trends of MBR Systems for Municipal Wastewater Treatment

    Cost estimates were developed for full-scale (1 and 5 MGD) MBR facilities designed to treat municipal wastewater. These estimates included both capital and operational / maintenance (O&M) costs related to the headworks, MBR process (biological process and membrane system), chlorine disinfection and effluent storage. The costs associated with the membrane systems were developed from budgetary cost ...

  • Effective products for wastewater treatment system

    The process applied to alter waste water into dirt-free drinking water is called as WasteWater Treatment; the water that is no longer needed or fit for any purpose. The bilge water can be returned to the water cycle to make it suitable for drinking. This is called as water reclamation which avoids the disposal of wastewater by treating them with various recycling processes. Treatment implies ...

THE CHALLENGE Prichard AL is a town of about 30.000 people north of Mobile. AL Paul David, the Sewer Board Superintendent, oversees the contract management of two (21 ...

  • High Purity Boiler Water Production Using Municipal Wastewater at a Combined Cycle Gas-Fired Generating Station

    Abstract The recovery of wastewater for industrial uses presents many challenges for the design and operation of water treatment equipment. Since the term wastewater can be applied to a wide range of water sources from municipal sewage to storm runoff to industrial discharge water, the water characteristics may have great variability. As such, the equipment to treat wastewater must be robust ...

  • Biological responses of marine flatfish exposed to municipal wastewater effluent

    There is an increasing concern approximately the presence of pharmaceutical compounds, personal care products, and other chemicals collectively known as contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) in municipal effluents. Yet, knowledge approximately potential environmental impacts related to these compounds is still limited. In the present study, we conducted laboratory exposures that examined ...

  • Fish community responses to multiple municipal wastewater inputs in a watershed

    Municipal wastewater effluent (MWWE) is one of the largest anthropogenic waste discharges by volume in Canada and there is concern over the potential impacts it may have on aquatic ecosystems (Environment Canada 2001). The input of organic material and nutrients from MWWEs into the aquatic receiving environment can result in eutrophication and lower dissolved oxygen content (Chambers et al. ...

  • Modeling anaerobic digestion of municipal wastewater sludges: an elemental approach

    An experimental study that examined the elemental composition of waste activated sludge as it progressed through mesophilic and thermophilic anaerobic digestion was completed. It was found that the oxygen mass fraction of the VSS increased while the carbon content decreased as digestion progressed. Small differences were observed in the responses observed for mesophilic and thermophilic digestion ...
