Using Supersaturated Dissolved Oxygen To Reduce Costs And Increase Treatment Capacity

Source: ChartWater

Aeration is one of the most important parts of many wastewater treatment processes. Proper aeration is key to any biological treatment goals, controlling odors, and more. However, it is also one of the most energy-intensive processes. At a time when sustainability is front and center in the minds of many businesses and municipalities alike, finding ways to reduce energy usage is paramount. Similarly, cutting energy costs has become essential as inflation weighs on both the private and public sectors. 

This one-two combination makes now the right time to consider an alternative to standard aeration blowers and diffusers. As such, many businesses and municipalities worldwide have been investing in supersaturated dissolved oxygen (SDOX) technology. Using SDOX, it is possible to cut aeration-related energy costs in half. SDOX can replace ambient air equipment in a range of applications, including activated sludge systems, oxidation ditches, odor control in collection systems, and the environmental remediation of polluted rivers, lakes, and reservoirs, including preventing or remediating harmful algal blooms.
