  • 7 Disadvantages of Implementing an Activated Sludge Process For Your Municipality or Company

    Biological treatment processes are an important component in many wastewater treatment systems. They are one of the most efficient and effective ways of reducing organic material in wastewater. There are quite a few of them that have been researched and used over several decades. However, one of the most widely used conventional biological treatment process is the activated sludge process (ASP). ...

  • Sludge Treatment and Disposal Technologies

    Most wastewater treatment processes produce a by-product that purifies wastewater before it is released into local waterways. This by-product is named as sludge. Typically in solid, semi-solid or liquid state, it is in fact an amalgamation of all the liquid wastes that are discharged by domestic houses, commercial properties, industry, and/or agriculture after aerobic biological treatment. ...

  • Can a moving bed bioreactor reduce toxicity of complex industrial wastewater?

    MeadWestvaco Corporation in DeRidder, Louisiana refines crude tall oil (a byproduct of black liquor) to produce a variety of specialty chemicals products. The facility generates approximately 0.46 million gallons per day (mgd) of wastewater that require treatment for total recoverable phenols (TRP), chemical oxygen demand (COD), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), and whole effluent toxicity (WET). ...

  • Treatment Technology of Wastewater from Nictric Acid Production (Second)

    The nictric acid is an organic acid, which is mainly used in food industry, medicine, chemical industry and so on. Generally, starch is the main source of nictric acid. The production of citric acid will produce a large amount of wastewater. This paper mainly introduces several methods of treating nictric acid wastewater, such as emulsion liquid membrane, comprehensive treatment and recycling ...

  • How to make an electrocoagulation system?

    In the present era, water scarcity is one of the greatest threats to the humans. As the population is increasing rapidly, the demand for water is also increasing. Soon there will be a situation, when there will be no water on this planet to use. In such conditions, some innovative companies have designed a technology based waste water treatment solution, through which the waste water can be ...

  • 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 ...
