The DN Tanks crew applied the architectural paint to the 2.0 MG digested sludge tank in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The tank has a cast-in-place dome roof to allow for an unobstructed interior with a mixing system. Several large openings in the dome accommodate mechanical equipment for the tank.
Clearfleau gets new lease of life under EnviroChemie
German water technology company EnviroChemie has bought UK industrial wastewater treatment specialist Clearfleau out of administration, giving it an entry point into the UK industrial market. Clearfleau has already seen good commercial traction for its turnkey anaerobic digestion plants, signing up blue-chip customers in the food and beverage sector, including Nestle and Diageo. Its proprietary system is able to digest effluent loads with significantly higher solids content than traditional AD systems, making it...
Colsen maximizes energy revenue of WTTP Den Bosch (NL)
The demands for modern WWTP`s to operate more sustainable are becoming increasingly stringent. This applies in to many of the WWTP in The Netherlands and also to the Treurenburg location in Den Bosch (NL), which is owned by Water Council Aa and Maas. In order to achieve the desired performance, specific technologies must be applied. Colsen owns a broad range of technologies which have been applied to the sludge line at the WWTP in Den Bosch to be able to more efficiently process the sludge stream and to maximize...

Using Anaerobic Biomass Digestion to Produce Hydrogen and Biofuel
For many years, hydrogen has been considered as an alternative to fossil fuels. Now, Scientists are aiming to develop an environmentally friendly method to produce hydrogen from biomass by optimizing anaerobic digestion systems.1 Climate change, dwindling fuel resources and energy prices have spearheaded intensive efforts to detect and optimize alternative fuel options. As a zero emission fuel, hydrogen is often believed to be the ultimate energy vector but despite this fact, hydrogen production can be harmful...
SOWC Project: development and validation of a Model for the Thermophilic Pre-Treatment of Biosolids
inCTRL Solutions started a research project with McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada and GE Water & Process Technologies on Thermophilic Pre-Treatment of Biosolids. This project is funded by the Southern Ontario Water Consortium (SOWC). Anaerobic digestion is an essential process in wastewater sludge treatment. Hydrolysis is one of the rate-limiting reactions in anaerobic digestion but it can be greatly accelerated by increasing the operating temperature to 50°C or higher. Temperature effects on the...
