The Problem: The Sustainable Recycling Company is a centralized wastewater treatment (CWT) facility located in Connecticut. They process oily wastewater streams from a variety of sources via an integrated treatment process using collection, oil water separation, ultrafiltration, chemical precipitation. The pretreated wastewater is highly loaded with BOD and COD and the local POTW in Connecticut demanded significant reductions in organic loading.
The Solution: In 2010, bioprocessH2O supplied a bioFAS Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) biological treatment process to reduce BOD/COD on a single‐pass using three (3) 50,000-gallon bioFAS MBBR Bioreactors operating in a 2:1 staged array or in a parallel configuration. The Wastewater then flows to a Dissovled Air Flotation (DAF) system for bulk suspended solids removal and then flows to a bioFLOW Ultrafiltration (UF) Membrane System for the removal and polishing of TSS without the use of flocculation and coagulation chemistry.
Status/Results: The bioFLOW UF Membrane System effectively filters the TSS down to a turbidity.
