  • What is biological wastewater treatment?

    Biological wastewater treatment harnesses the action of bacteria and other microorganisms to clean water Biological wastewater treatment is a process that seems simple on the surface since it uses natural processes to help with the decomposition of organic substances, but in fact, it’s a complex, not completely understood process at the intersection of biology and ...

  • Stevens, Pennsylvania - AccuFAS - Biological Treatment installations applications - Case Study

    Application A poultry processing plant, which was exceeding its original effluent ammonia limit of 8 mg/L, not only wanted to expand production (increasing discharge by 67%), but also needed to meet an even lower ammonia limit of 4 mg/L. Additional aeration tankage could not be accommodated in the given area and hauling waste did not provide a long-term, cost-effective solution. By ...

  • Biological Filtration: Future of Drinking Water Treatment

    Water is essential for all human life on the planet, but the fresh water supply is limited and is susceptible to being contaminated by all manner of toxins like arsenic, calcium, and mercury. There are many techniques to remove contaminants, including popular methods that add chemicals to balance others out, but one that not many people understand is biological water system filtration. ...

  • Operation of an anaerobic filter compared with an anaerobic moving bed bioreactor for the treatment of waste water from hydrothermal carbonisation of fine mulch

    This experimental study investigates the anaerobic digestion of waste water from hydrothermal carbonisation of fine mulch (wood chips) in combination with a co-substrate for the first time. Two anaerobic reactors, an anaerobic filter (AF) and an anaerobic moving bed bioreactor (AnMBBR), were operated over a period of 131 days at mesophilic conditions. The organic loading rate was increased to ...

  • Making your drinking water safe with biological water treatment

    As society becomes more environmentally conscious, it is important that your community is provided with its natural necessities in an eco-friendly manner. One of these natural necessities includes adequate drinking water. Many companies use chemical treatment methods to help cleanse and purify water resources, but such methods are often at the expense of your local environment. Some water ...

  • The Rising Cost of Water

    There's a common economic paradox about the price tag on drinking water and value. Our current economic climate places prices on things predicated on scarcity and value. Water pricing is now more widespread, with the dual goal of expanding supply and encouraging more responsible use. So long as water remained abundant, the cheapness of drinking water is not likely to change. However, the price of ...

  • Influence of chemically enhanced primary treatment on anaerobic digestion and dewaterability of waste sludge

    To lower energy consumption at a sewage treatment plant (STP), primary settling could be enhanced to direct more chemical oxygen demand (COD) to anaerobic digestion (AD) for increased biogas production and decreased aeration. Primary settling can be chemically enhanced by applying flocculation aids (FAs). FAs are refractory compounds that may affect all sludge treatment facilities. In this ...

  • Dewatering optimization with in-line and real-time measurement of polymer: results from full-scale treatment plants

    Full-scale testing was carried out at two wastewater treatment plants to determine whether residual polymer concentration, measured by filtrate and centrate absorbance at 191 nm, can be used to identify the optimum polymer dose and achieve in-line and real-time dewatering optimization. The first plant uses high speed centrifuges and the second plant uses belt filter presses for dewatering. ...

  • Response surface methodology approach for the optimisation of adsorption of hydrolysed polyacrylamide from polymer-flooding wastewater onto steel slag: a good option of waste mitigation

    Wastewater produced from polymer flooding in oil production features high viscosity and chemical oxygen demand because of the residue of high-concentration polymer hydrolysed polyacrylamide (HPAM). In this study, steel slag, a waste from steel manufacturing, was studied as a low-cost adsorbent for HPAM in wastewater. Optimisation of HPAM adsorption by steel slag was performed with a central ...

  • Adsorption characteristic of As(III) on goethite waste generated from hydrometallurgy of zinc

    In this paper, goethite waste from hydrometallurgy of zinc was used as a raw material for arsenic adsorbent preparation. The goethite waste adsorbent (GWA) was characterized with scanning electron microscope (SEM), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), and particle size distribution analysis. The adsorption of As(III) on GWA was studied as a function of contact time, pH, and coexisting anions. The ...
