  • Biological wastewater treatment followed by physicochemical treatment for the removal of fluorinated surfactants

    Perfluorinated surfactants (PFS) have become compounds of high concern during the last decade. While “conventional surfactants” are degraded to a great extent in the biological wastewater treatment process, partly or perfluorinated surfactants are not only stable against biodegradation but also against oxidizing agents, they even resist OH-radical attacks. Our objectives were to eliminate the ...

  • Optimizing Wastewater Treatment

    ' Growing volumes of both industrial and municipal wastewater are being discharged to surface waters but the treatment provided frequently is inadequate to protect the desired uses of the receiving waters. With limited resources in terms of both institutional capacity and finance, governments face difficult choices in optimizing their investments in municipal systems and establishing practical ...

  • Cosmetics production with smart wastewater treatment– with the disposal technology from DAS

    Emil Kiessling GmbH relies on the TFR technology from Dresden (Germany) for wastewater treatment Emil Kiessling GmbH with headquarters in Georgensgmünd, Middle Franconia (Germany), is a successful cosmetics manufacturer. The product range includes natural cosmetics through to sun ...

  • Microbiology: The Key to Wastewater treatment case study

    The biological treatment of wastewater relies mainly on a consortium of heterotrophic and autotrophic bacteria. The fecal bacteria that are constantly introduced into the collection system are not the optimal bacteria for degrading the contaminants present in wastewaters. The soil bacteria that are introduced through inflow and infiltration are more effective at degrading the wastes and can ...

  • Electrocoagulation Wastewater Treatment – An Application To Sustainably Reuse Textile Wastewater

    The textile industry is a water consumption intensive industry. Water is utilized for cleaning the raw material, and for the different steps in the textile dyeing process. Due to the effects of water scarcity and stricter environmental regulations, the cost of fresh water utilization has increased worldwide. In addition, the textile industry is faced with pressure by government regulators to move ...

  • Alpine resort leads the way in wastewater treatment

    One of the world’s most popular ski resorts, Courchevel in the French Alps, has introduced an innovative wastewater treatment system to manage the sharp increase in capacity needed during the winter months. During the winter months, the population of Courchevel triples and the traditional aerated wastewater treatment system at nearby Bozel was finding it difficult to meet demand. The local ...

  • Electrocoagulation Wastewater Treatment: Specialized Technology to meet the needs of food & beverage wastewater

    The effects of water scarcity and stricter environmental regulations placed on water usage are increasing the cost of using freshwater globally. The consequences of these increasing costs on food and beverage companies are twofold, since the companies are charged for both the water that they utilize in their processes and on their wastewater discharge. Additionally, the food and beverage industry ...

  • Biological nitrogen removal from plating wastewater by submerged membrane bioreactor packed with granular sulfur

    Recent toughened water quality standards have necessitated improvements for existing sewer treatment facilities through advanced treatment processes. Therefore, an advanced treatment process that can be installed through simple modification of existing sewer treatment facilities needs to be developed. In this study, a new submerged membrane bioreactor process packed with granular sulfur ...

  • The removal and degradation of pharmaceutical compounds during membrane bioreactor treatment

    Pharmaceutical compounds such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and antibiotics have been detected in sewage treatment plant (STP) effluents, surface and ground water and even in drinking water all over the world, and therefore have developed as compounds of concern. Membrane bioreactor (MBR) treatment has gained significant popularity as an advanced wastewater treatment ...

  • Functional and Theoretical Overview

    Introduction The Advanced Enviro-Septic™ Treatment System (AES), available exclusively from Presby Environmental (PEI), is an innovative, alternative onsite wastewater treatment system that utilizes natural, non-mechanical processes to treat and disperse effluent that has received primary treatment in a conventional septic tank. Expected effluent quality after treatment in an AES ...

  • Neptune project deliverable D3.2

    Data set of ecotoxicity testing in relevant treatment processes and additionally of two emerging contaminants Micropollutants – trace organic contaminants occurring at ng/L concentrations or even below – attract more and more attention because of their potential impact on aquatic ecosystems. Thousands of different chemicals are introduced in the aquatic environment on trace ...

  • On the road again, cleaner and in compliance!

    Pretreatment removal rates have been greater than 90 percent Problem A huge trucking company needed advanced wastewater treatment for its trucking line that hauls a variety of food products. Following each shipment, the trucks must be totally cleaned out before picking up another load. The food hauled varies from shipment to shipment. Many of the food products contain a high amount of ...

  • The Development of the New York City BNR Program

     ABSTRACT: The Long Island Sound Study (LISS), a partnership between the United States Environmental Protection Agency, New York, and Connecticut, was formed by Congress to address water quality concerns related to eutrophication and hypoxia. Nitrogen was identified as the causal agent for the observed water quality problems, and a set of phased Nitrogen removal targets were implemented ...

  • Dynamic Mathematical Modeling of Membrane Fouling in Submerged Membrane Bioreactors

    ABSTRACTA mathematical model is developed that accounts for internal fouling of membranes due to soluble microbial products during subcritical flux operation, and for supercritical flux fouling due to cake formation and compression.. The model takes into account the filtration effect generated by the cake. A set of differential equations is derived and solved numerically to obtain a description ...
