  • Analytical Services- Laboratory Testing

  • Activated Sludge Microscopy Testing Services

    Activated Sludge Microscopy Testing Services

    One of Aqua Enviro’s techniques for the initial assessment of the activated sludge process is microscopic examination. This test involves the visual assessment of biomass floc structure/size/shape, protozoa, metazoa and filamentous bacteria. Findings from the visual assessment our used to indicate the overall health of the plant, changes that may have occurred in the influent, process conditions (F/M, sludge age) and...

  • Biochemical Methane Potential Testing Services (BMP)

    Biochemical Methane Potential Testing Services (BMP)

    Aqua Enviro utilise two main techniques for assessing feedstocks for anaerobic digestion (AD) with these being the Bio-chemical Methane Potential (BMP) test and laboratory trials using bench-scale AD reactors. The BMP test is usually the first stage of assessment and comprises of a batch test whereby a known quantity of feedstock is added to a seed digestate from a suitable AD process and the cumulative methane production is...

  • Carbonaceous And Nitrification Inhibition Testing Services

    Carbonaceous And Nitrification Inhibition Testing Services

    Aqua Enviro utilise three main techniques for assessing feedstocks for aerobic treatment. With these being carbonaceous and nitrification inhibition testing, Zahn Wellens / EMPA RBCOD assessment and laboratory trials using sequence batch reactors. Carbonaceous and nitrification inhibition testing is usually the first stage of assessment in the amenability of a test material for aerobic treatment. Using respirometric methods...

  • Dewatering Optimisation Tool (DOT) and Stackability Assessment Services

    Dewatering Optimisation Tool (DOT) and Stackability Assessment Services

    Efficient dewatering is key to the management of dewatered materials and whilst the interaction between different physical and chemical propoerties of these materials are well documented, this general knowledge doesn’t give an indication of how dewaterable any specific sludge might be – or how well any individual dewatering process is operating. Similarly, it is vital that dewatered material is stable and is able to be stored without it...

  • Feedstock and Biogas Radiocarbon Dating Testing Services

    Feedstock and Biogas Radiocarbon Dating Testing Services

    Aqua Enviro can determine anthropogenic (non-fossil fuel) content of effluent, waste and biogas in order to determine the proportion of the energy that is eligible for renewable energy subsidies. We can advise on the impact this may have on the return on investment for a range of anaerobic digestion technologies.  This is of particular relevant where AD is employed to treat chemical feedstocks that may be a complex blend of materials.

  • Laboratory Scale Activated Sludge Plant (ASP) Trial Testing Services

    Laboratory Scale Activated Sludge Plant (ASP) Trial Testing Services

    Aqua Enviro utilise three main techniques for assessing feedstocks for aerobic treatment. With these being carbonaceous and nitrification inhibition testing, Zahn Wellens / EMPA RBCOD assessment and laboratory trials using sequence batch reactors. We recommend Laboratory scale Activated Sludge Plant (ASP) trials are used as the 3rd stage of assessment to assess the amenability of the feedstock for Aerobic treatment following respirometry and/or Zahn...

  • Laboratory Scale Anaerobic Digestion (AD) Trial Testing Services

    Laboratory Scale Anaerobic Digestion (AD) Trial Testing Services

    Aqua Enviro utilise two main techniques for assessing feedstocks for anaerobic digestion (AD), with these being the Bio-chemical Methane Potential (BMP) test and laboratory scale trials using bench-scale AD reactors. We recommend Laboratory scale AD trials are used as the 2nd stage of assessment to assess the amenability of the feedstock for AD following BMP testing. Bench scale trials comprise of duplicate reactors operated at conditions tailored to...

  • Laboratory Scale Sequence Batch Reactor (SBR) Trial Testing Services

    Laboratory Scale Sequence Batch Reactor (SBR) Trial Testing Services

    Aqua Enviro utilise three main techniques for assessing feedstocks for aerobic treatment. With these being carbonaceous and nitrification inhibition testing, Zahn Wellens / EMPA RBCOD assessment and laboratory trials using sequence batch reactors. We recommend Laboratory scale SBR trials are used as the 3rd stage of assessment to assess the amenability of the feedstock for Aerobic treatment following respirometry and/or Zahn wellens testing. Bench...

  • Laboratory Scale Thermal Hydrolysis Trial Testing Services

    Laboratory Scale Thermal Hydrolysis Trial Testing Services

    Aqua Enviro possess a pilot scale thermal hydrolysis rig which can be used in combination with biochemical methane potential testing or a lab scale AD trial. To assess the amenability of a potential or current AD feedstock for thermal hydrolysis treatment.
