Fluence MABR (membrane aerated biofilm reactor) technology address the critical challenges of wastewater treatment plants for: nutrient reduction, high effluent quality, compliance with regulations, minimized energy consumption, at a small footprint, whil
Municipal water treatment facilities utilize continuous mixing to process drinking water for municipalities. There are a variety of drinking water sources and therefore different processing steps for the water. Processes utilize rotating and static mixing to treat the water for human consumption.
Sewer management is crucial to the sustainability of life. It is necessary to properly discharge wastewater clinically and efficiently. Failure in wastewater systems will cause major implications in the future. The population is increasing, and larger volumes of wastewater put additional strain on existing sewer infrastructure. Each year there are nearly 75,000 such overflows in the United States, discharging approximately 900 billion gallons of untreated sewage into lakes, streams, and rivers. This affects our...
Water is essential component in the mining and steel industries. The main needs under this aspect are optimizing the management of the resources, improving productivity by treating available water for specific production process requirements and managing environmental risks by treating contaminated pond and underground mine water to remove heavy metals, arsenic and other contaminants for safe discharge into sensitive environment.
THE AQQA® technology is used onboard ships to: treat the wastewater in membrane bio reactors so that it complies with the regulations of the IMO (International Maritime Organization) for discharge into the sea in special areas ensure clear wastewater effluent with bathing water quality
Although the process of coatings continues to move towards environmentally “neutral” practices, the process is still water intensive and thus creates the demand for proper stewardship of the wastes generated by these processes. Plymouth has partnered with the painting industry to create innovative ways for reducing chemistry, labor, wastes, and ultimately costs that have been ever-present in this manufacturing sector.
In the chemical industry, oil is often discharged into wastewater during processes such as cooling or polymerization. This oil/water solution typically collects in common industry basins following completion of one of these processes or sumps when rainwater washes away oil that has leaked or spilled.
In the field of quality control and process control, AppliTek has developed a unique set of specific monitoring solutions in order to meet the ever-increasing demand for cost efficient paper production. Traditionally, AppliTek is also your one-stop shop for on-line analyzers with regards to environmental compliance.
Direct reuse of wastewater in the product is not on the menu in the food and beverage industry, but the reuse of water for other purposes (e.g. washing) is now a priority. Most major F&B companies have made commitments to reduce their water consumption per unit of product, and reuse is an important part of the strategy for achieving this. Furthermore much of the growth of the industry is in emerging markets which typically have more limited, lower quality water resources than developed countries, creating...
Extracting the Most Value with Astute Water Management. The mining industry operates in difficult and isolated terrains where clean water is not commonly accessible. Being a key element in mining operations, a constant water supply for smooth operations is crucial. Mining also produces wastewater from the extraction process that can be high in acidity, corrosive metals and other toxic contaminants that challenges discharge standards.
Water is scarce and in high demand in the mountain desert town of Payson, Arizona. So the city reuses its water. It sends the cleaned wastewater to a public recreational lake and then onward for irrigating green areas in public parks, golf courses and schools. Therefore, it is vital that the water is treated correctly and thoroughly, or else it would put people’s health at risk.
Problem: A significant portion of the operational costs of a conventional municipal wastewater treatment plant employing an aerobic biological treatment unit comes from electricity costs associated with aeration. In many cases, the aeration rates are kept at the maximum level to ensure that the plant’s effluent is in compliance with the regulations. The critical parameter for regulatory purposes and treatment efficiency, BOD, takes 5 days to measure through standard methods providing almost no value to the...
Waste water treatment is a multi-stage process to neutralise or disinfect wastewater to within regulatory requirements before it is released into the environment. Considering the wide range of waste water streams and associated difficulties, the control system must be reliable, flexible and with a comprehensive range of functions to be activated for each individual treatment requirement.
Improved waste management through automation can deliver more efficient waste treatment, reduced energy and chemical consumption and improved effluent quality. The cost of treatment and trade discharge can thus be significantly reduced.
Environmental engineering’s agency Colsen b.v. designs, specifies and executes building site direction of several kinds of wastewater treatment installations for industrial- and communal wastewater. These installations are designed to deal with the local climatological conditions and specific customer demands.
The power generation sector is the largest industrial user of water in the world, with a need for enormous volumes of water for cooling and ultrapure water to supply boiler systems. Investment in water treatment technologies for this sector is worth $2.1 billion. Rapid industrialisation and economic growth in South East Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa is increasing demand for electricity, requiring significant investment in water technologies. Environmental regulation will push for increased treatment of scrubber...
Hydrogen Peroxide typically controls odors and corrosion at treatment plant headworks by direct oxidation of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) within the wastewater. In the direct oxidation mode, H2O2 is applied to the wastewater 5-30 minutes prior to the point where the odors are being released, generally as the wastewater line enters the plant boundary.
The efficiency of hydrogen peroxide treatment depends upon the available reaction time, the level of iron in the wastewater (reaction catalyst), wastewater pH and...
Industrial wastewater’s need to treat and remove harmful contaminants prior to discharging into sewers, lakes and rivers. Today many industrial treatment systems are being challenged by the introduction of lower discharge requirements on phosphorous and nitrogen. FibrePlate is an ideal solution in meeting discharge requirements as it is a true UF membrane, easily rejecting contaminants, bacteria and viruses. Robust, flexible and compact, performance is assured over its design life. Utilising innovative dual...
Municipalities around the world have a common rallying cry; how can I do more with less? Increasing populations stress hydraulic capacities of existing wastewater treatment plants with no room to expand. Regulators are looking to lower discharge limits, challenging existing plant capabilities. Fibracast understands these challenges and the reason why a new membrane design and operating approach was needed;
