The Skanderborg Waste Water Treatment Plant in Denmark replaced one of its 75 kW lobe blowers with a new 55 kW Atlas Copco ZS screw blower and were able to reduce their energy consumption by 31 percent.


Bioaugmentation Eliminates Odor And Sludge Buildup From Lagoons
By RELIANT Water Technologies
In Cabo San Lucus Mexico a golf course, located next to the town’s municipal wastewater lagoons, was specifically designed to utilize treated lagoon water for irrigation.

By Bio-Microbics, Inc.
Alternative wastewater disposal systems reduce groundwater pollution by decomposing organic wastes or removing nutrients more effectively. With conventional, "decentralized" septic systems, only ten to forty percent of treatment actually occurs in the tank. Whereas, advanced wastewater treatment systems, such as the FAST systems, do ninety to ninety-five percent of the treatment before discharging to the environment.
