Biological Water Treatment Applications

  • Residential Areas and Hostelries wastewater treatment

    Residential Areas and Hostelries wastewater, including water generated by domestic use, by shops, restaurants and laundries, must be adequately treated to meet the discharge requirements of public sewers or channel, or reuse as irrigation water mainly.

    This wastewater has the following characteristics:

    • Variations in flow depending on the time of day and season (mainly in tourist areas).
    • High suspended solids content.
    • Presence of oils, fats and detergents.
    • High concentration of easily biodegradable organic matter.
    • Adequate concentration of nutrients.

  • Sulfide Oxidation with Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)

    Sulfide Odor Control Sulfide is found throughout the environment as a result of both natural and industrial processes. Most sulfide found in nature was produced biologically (under anaerobic conditions) and occurs as free hydrogen sulfide (H2S) - characterized by its rotten egg odor. We are most likely to encounter biogenic H2S in sour groundwaters, swamps and marshes, natural gas deposits, and sewage collection/treatment systems. Manmade sources of H2S typically occur as a result of natural materials containing sulfur (e.g., coal, gas and oil) being refined into industrial products. For a variety of reasons - aesthetics (odor control), health (toxicity), ecological (oxygen depletion in receiving waters), and economic (corrosion of equipment and infrastructure) - sulfide laden wastewaters must be handled carefully and remediated before they can be released to the environment. Typical discharge limits for sulfide are < 1 mg/L. Sulfide Treatment Alternatives There are dozens of alternatives for treating sulfide laden waters, ranging from simple air stripping (for the low levels present in groundwaters) to elaborate sulfur recovery plants (used to treat several tons per day at refineries and coal burning power plants). There are processes based on biology (using compost filters, scrubbing media, or inhibition/disinfection), chemistry (oxidation, precipitation, absorption, and combination), and physics (adsorption, volatilization, and incineration). Each process occupies a niche which is often defined by the scale and continuity of treatment, whether the sulfide is in solution or is a gas, the concentration of sulfide involved, and the disposition of the sulfide containing medium. However, for reasons relating to convenience and flexibility, chemical oxidation (using hydrogen peroxide) continues to grow in its scope of application. Treatment with Hydrogen Peroxide While other peroxygens such as permonosulfuric (Caro’s) acid, peracetic acid, and persulfates will oxidize sulfide, their use for this application is overkill. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is considerably simpler and more cost-effective. H2O2 may control sulfides in two ways, depending on the application: Prevention - by providing dissolved oxygen which inhibits the septic conditions which lead to biological sulfide formation; and Destruction - by oxidizing sulfide to elemental sulfur or sulfate ion.

  • Wastewater treatment for the beverage industry

    Enterprises in the beverage industry are facing tough competition. Water consumption is one of the most significant cost factors in the sector, since water is the main ingredient of their products. In addition, bottle washing or cleaning of machines and equipment also requires enormous amounts of clean water. This is why beverage producers need a wastewater treatment system that meets these demands.

    Wastewater treatment upgrades & extensions

    The time comes that a Sewage Treatment Facility Municipal or Industrial may require significant upgrading or even an extension. The upgrade usually concerns improvement process performance (removal rates) and efficiency as well as replacement of mechanical equipment. The plant expansion usually refers to an increase of the capacity or to the extension of treatment ability, ie adding Nutrient Removal.

  • Fat, Oil and Grease treatment

    Industrial and municipal waste contaminated with fat – a frequent problem for companies maintaining wastewater network infrastructure and municipal wastewater treatment facilities. We recommend the use of GREASOLUX fat dissolvent cartridges to avoid the problems of pipeline chocking, equipment damage, offensive odors, formation of filamentous bacteria, poor wastewater treatment results, poor sedimental properties of activated sludge. GREASOLUX – is a cartridge that slowly dissolves in water, enriched with special fat dissolvent microorganisms and enzymes. GREASOLUX – is an especially efficient product for low cost solutions to problems caused by fat: only few strategically placed cartridges will remove or minimize the problems caused by fat.

  • Wastewater Colour Removal

    The presence of colour in water and wastewater, even a small amount, is highly visible and affects the aesthetic value. Colour is often caused by organic matter. Forms of organic content that cause colour pollution include synthetic chemical dyes, algae species and natural dissolved organics such as lignin and tannins.
