  • Optimizing Filtration and Disinfection Systems with a Risk-Based Approach

    Treated wastewater effluents contain high concentrations of particles; many of these particles are large (with diameters greater than 100 μm) and consist of densely-packed bacterial cells.  Microorganisms occluded in wastewater particles can be difficult to inactivate in chlorine disinfection systems, as the chlorine must first diffuse through the ...

  • Environmental Anaerobic Technology

    Anaerobic technology has become widely accepted by the environmental industry as a cost-effective alternative to the conventional aerobic process. In addition, with the intrinsic advantages of energy saving, reduced sludge yield, and production of biofuel, anaerobic process will be the favored green treatment technology for sustainable environment ...

    Industrial MBRs' is a concise guide to the design, operation and general implementation of membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology in the treatment of industrial effluents. Industrial sectors considered include food and beverage, petroleum, pharmaceutical, landfill, textile and ships. The book provides a brief summary of each of these sectors, along ...

  • Process Control of Activated Sludge Plants by Microscopic Investigation CD-ROM

    If you wish to download the free manual that accompanies this CDROM please click here The activated sludge process is widely used for treating wastewater. Process stability and final effluent quality largely depend upon the composition of the biomass in an activated sludge plant. Operational problems such as bulking and scum formation occur when ...

  • Metals in the Environment: Analysis by Biodiversity

    A summary of data on heavy metal accumulation, biomonitoring, toxicity and tolerance, metal contamination and pollution in the environment, and the importance of biodiversity for environmental monitoring and cleanup of metal-contaminated and polluted ecosystems. It advocates the use of bacteria, mycorrhizae, freshwater algae, salt marshes, bryo- ...

  • Uncertainty in Wastewater Treatment Design and Operation

    Scientific and Technical Report No. 21 Uncertainty in Wastewater Treatment Design and Operation aims to facilitate the transition of the wastewater profession to the probabilistic use of simulators with the associated benefits of being better able to take advantage of opportunities and manage risk. There is a paradigm shift taking place in the ...

  • Directory of Sources of Contaminants Entering Municipal Sewer Systems, 1st Edition

    The Canadian Water and Wastewater Association (CWWA), with the support of Environment Canada, has released a Directory of Sources of Contaminants Entering Municipal Sewer Systems. The Directory is aimed at helping to identify the potential industrial, commercial and institutional sources of contaminants entering municipal sewage treatment plants ...

  • MBR Book, 2nd Edition

    A Membrane BioReactor (MBR) is the combination of a membrane process (e.g. microfiltration/ ultrafiltration) with a suspended growth bioreactor. When used with domestic wastewater, MBR processes can produce effluent of high enough quality to be discharged to waterways, or to be reclaimed for urban irrigation. Other advantages of MBRs over ...

  • Characterizing the Quality of Effluent and Other Contributory Sources During Peak Wet Weather Events

    This study evaluates the impacts of blending practices at municipal wastewater treatment plants on effluent and receiving water quality, and estimates public health risks associated with recreation in surface waters receiving blended flows. Field samples were collected at four municipal wastewater treatment plants for in-plant processes and ...
