The AquaNereda® Aerobic Granular Sludge (AGS) Technology is an innovative biological wastewater treatment technology that provides advanced treatment using the unique features of aerobic granular biomass. An aerobic granular biomass is comprised of compact granules that provide advantages compared to other secondary treatment processes. This advanced nutrient removal process can reduce footprint up to 75 percent and energy up to 50 percent when compared to conventional activated sludge systems.
One of the defining characteristics of the granule is rapid settling, which in turn allows for an increase in the biomass concentration. The granules are comprised of true biomass and do not require carriers. The layered microbial community that forms the granule is able to achieve enhanced biological nutrient removal, including simultaneous nitrification/denitrification and phosphorus reduction.
This webinar will further define aerobic granular sludge including: AGS history, granular formation, and the microbiology. The presenter will provide a detailed overview of the AquaNereda process and operation, including solids handling, and include a featured case study of the first installed full-scale system in the U.S. at the Wolf Creek WWTP in Foley, AL.
