  • Advanced Lagoon Treatment Technologies for Wastewater Treatment

    Lagoon-based wastewater treatment systems are popular around the world for their simplicity and cost-effectiveness. However, these systems are unable to reliably remove biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and total suspended solids (TSS) to less than 30 mg/L or achieve nitrification during winter months in cold climates. Several innovative modifications have been developed, which have the potential ...

  • MSW Management: Safely Countering the Rise of Landfill Odors

    One of the core challenges of landfill and compost site management is fighting the rise of foul odors. In addition, as communities expand further out from previous areas, they eventually become neighbors to landfills – calling for a comprehensive odor-control approach to countering odor complaints. In fact, compared to other industrial applications such as wastewater treatment and asphalt ...

  • Effectiveness of Alternative On-Site Wastewater Treatment Technologies

    ABSTRACT New York City’s drinking water supply is threatened by the potential development of the Catskill/Delaware watershed. The effectiveness of alternative on-site wastewater treatment systems in this drinking water supply watershed is being evaluated during the course of a oneyear field study. Twenty-four on-site systems were designed and installed for individual sites throughout the ...

  • Overview of the Design, Construction, and Operation of the McMurdo Wastewater Treatment Facility in Antarctica

    McMurdo Research Station is situated on the Ross Sea south of New Zealand. As one of the three bases that the National Science Foundation operates in Antarctica, McMurdo houses yearround research personnel conducting a variety of research experiments for the United States. In order to protect the pristine environment, a plan for a wastewater treatment facility for McMurdo was implemented in late ...

  • Electrocoagulation Wastewater Treatment: Specialized Technology to meet the needs of food & beverage wastewater

    The effects of water scarcity and stricter environmental regulations placed on water usage are increasing the cost of using freshwater globally. The consequences of these increasing costs on food and beverage companies are twofold, since the companies are charged for both the water that they utilize in their processes and on their wastewater discharge. Additionally, the food and beverage industry ...

  • Design configurations for commercial application of biomass carriers in small wastewater treatment plants

    Introduction Moving bed type reactors are bio-film processes utilizing small, plastic biomass carriers that mix in the water. The use of biomass carriers is becoming common world-wide, for many applications, some of which are: compact low operation units, industrial wastewater roughing filters, retrofit and upgrade of municipal wastewater treatment plants. The AGARTM Process (Attached Growth ...

  • Wastewater Treatment Works

    Margate and Broadstairs, two of the principal towns in northeastern Kent, attract thousands of visitors each summer to enjoy the beaches and countryside within easy reach of London. Such popularity comes with a cost. The infrastructure serving the area needs to be developed to keep pace with the rising population and the requirements of new UK and European Union legislation. With the ...

  • Wastewater treatment for a municipality

    Description of the plant At first, wastewater is pre-treated by a combinated sand and fat trap before further treatment is affected by a special screen. The accruing particles are collected in anti-septic plastic bags to avoid any personal contact because of hygienic reasons. Based on the high varying hydraulic amount of wastewater, an aerated mixing and balancing reactor is ...

  • Wastewater-Primary Treatment

    Primary Treatment is defined as a wastewater treatment process that takes place in a rectangular or circular tank and allows those substances in wastewater that readily settle or float to be separated from the water being treated. This process achieves solids separation. The solids readily available to settle to achieve sedimentation will do so in a settling tank referred as a clarifier. On the ...

  • Design and development of decentralized water and wastewater technologies: a combination of safe wastewater disposal and fertilizer production

    Modern wastewater treatment plants are often inappropriate for communities in developing countries. Such communities lack the funding, resources and skilled labour required to implement, operate, and maintain these plants.
