  • ERG supplied a £2.3m waste gas treatment plant. Over 2 years on and the plant continues to deliver emissions compliance for Saffil - Case study

    Summer 2015 marked the completion of two years successful operation of an ERG (Air Pollution Control) Ltd designed, installed and commissioned waste gas treatment plant at the Saffil production facility in Widnes.  Background Saffil Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Unifrax, produces high temperature insulation products, for use in automotive catalytic convertors and other ...

  • 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. ...

  • Co-digestion of press liquids of source-sorted municipal organic waste in anaerobic sludge treatment of municipal wastewater treatment plants

    This paper describes a semi-continuous laboratory-scale investigation of a potential co-substrate for mesophilic anaerobic sludge digestion in a municipal wastewater treatment plant. A feed liquid produced from source-sorted municipal organic waste by pretreatment with a screw press was subjected to the investigation. Quantities produced in press trials as well as the composition of the feed ...

  • Fuelling ultra light rail public transport from a Gloucestershire organic waste treatment plant: a feasibility analysis

    Many medium-sized towns and cities face separate problems of traffic congestion and increasing pressure to reduce waste sent to landfill. The intent of the study was to determine whether the utilisation of biohydrogen from organic waste, as a transport fuel, can provide a holistic solution for municipalities to meet renewable energy and waste reduction targets in medium-sized towns. The study ...

  • Controlling Odors from Waste Water Treatment Plants

    INTRODUCTION In recent years, there is growing public awareness of odors from waste water treatment plants, which mainly stems from the following observed trends: The public is less tolerant of objectionable odors from waste water treatment plants; Many waste water treatment plants have seen residential, commercial, or other developments established near the facility ...

  • Case study - Deodorization at waste water treatment plants

    The presence of microorganisms in wastewater causes a decrease in dissolved oxygen levels due consumption by the organisms’ metabolic processes. The more microorganisms there are, the greater the biological demand for oxygen. When this demand exceeds that which can be provided by the exchange of air, an anaerobic process begins, thus creating a reducing environment that favours the ...

  • Treating organic waste with Cambi THP

    ABSTRACT This paper describes how the Cambi Thermal Hydrolysis Process (THP) treats biodegradable organic waste and converts it to renewable energy and pathogen-free and bio-fertilizer. The interest for the process is expected to increase due to new environmental legislation as well as increasing demand for renewable energy. The implementation of the European Landfill Directive 1999/31EC and the ...

  • Municipal waste water treatment plant case study

    A municipal WWTP in the North of England was experiencing significant problems with accumulations of FOG in the Wetwell at the head of the treatment plant. The FOG would form a solid cap over the well several feet thick. This put considerable strain on the pumping gear, interrupted the performance of the float switches and required regular manual intervention from the staff. High costs were also ...

  • On the pre–treatment of municipal organic waste towards fuel production: a review

    Lignocelluloses are the main constituents of municipal organic waste (MOW). In order to increase the production of fuels, via fermentations, the enzymatic hydrolysis is the first step towards a valorisation process. It is well–known that the hydrolysis of lignocelluloses is not very effective because of the high stability of the constituents. In this respect the pre–treatment of MOW is necessary ...

  • Sewage treatment plant

    BONO ARTES has developed an activated sludge process called BIOCLAR, which is a great technological step forwards compared to conventional methods. A large part of civil and industrial installations, especially in developing countries, is located in remote and secluded areas where there is no possibility for connection to a public sewer. On the other hand, the minimisation of the impact on the ...

  • Wastewater Treatment Plant

    Water is basic to life. It is a precious resource and has become precious commodity now. On going Industrialization, population & urbanization pose pressure on water availability. Utility value of world’s freshwater resources like lakes and rivers are diminishing rapidly due to over exploitation & pollution. Groundwater, an alternative to surface water is also a natural ...

  • Reasonable waste digestion plants

    During the last years it became quite clear that in the area of utilisation of organic waste the anaerobic digestion has developed a leading position. This is not only based on its well known advantages:- abhigh rate degradation of organics- abcontained process- ablow emissions- abhigh yield of CO2-neutral produced biogas and high quality compost as its productsbut also on the fact that customers ...

  • Efficient Waste Water Treatment

    Clean drinking water is an essential need of mankind. Often surface water like rivers or lakes is used as drinking water source. To prevent these resources from pollution the effective treatment of waste water is a must. For example in China 75% of discharged waste water is coming from pulp and paper, textile and dyeing industries. To run a waste water treatment plant in the most efficient way ...

  • Egg plant treatment in Belgium

    DESCRIPTION OF WASTEWATER TREATMENT FACILITY Between 3 and 4 million eggs are broken daily, 5 days a week, to produce egg-white, egg-yolk, and some mixed egg products for a total of 900 - 1000 tons of end-products per week. All is done under the highest hygienic standards. The wastewater treatment plant was built 10 years ago, when the egg breaking capacity was at 1.5 million eggs per day and ...

  • Effect of co-managing organic waste using municipal wastewater and solid waste treatment systems in megacities

    A model was developed to calculate the mass and heat balances of wastewater and municipal solid waste treatment plants when these plants operate either separately or together with a mutual dependence on mass and energy. Then the energy consumption, life cycle costs (LCCs), greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and effluent quality were evaluated under various scenarios to identify the most effective ...

  • Ultrasonic Waste and Sludge Treatment

    Biogas is generated from sources, such as municipal organic waste, sewage sludge, muck or manure. Ultrasonication improves the digestibility of such organic material leading to more biogas and less residual sludge. Biogas is a byproduct of the decomposition of organic matter by anaerobic or aerobic bacteria. It consists primarily of methane, carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide. This makes biogas ...

  • Carbon offsets from organic waste conversion projects

    The Climate Act ion Reserve (the Reserve) has long had a protocol to give credit for the capture and destruction of methane emissions from organic waste in landfills, but they have now opened up the possibility of credits for projects that prevent that waste from entering landfills in the first place. In October 2009, the Reserve adopted the Organic Waste Digestion Project Protocol, covering both ...
