Slashing Recycled Ammonia Loads From Dewatering Sidestreams
Recycling is generally considered a positive thing, except when the sidestream discharge from the dewatering of anaerobic digested sludge can recycle up to 40 percent of the total nitrogen or ammonia load in the original flow back to the head of the wastewater treatment stream. Deammonification technology using anaerobic ammonium oxidation/anammox bacteria offers a cost-effective way to break that vicious cycle and meet regulatory discharge limits.
Adapting To A New Era Of Food Processing
Many food processing facilities operating today were designed and built to accommodate consumer habits of a bygone era. As those commercial markets have evolved, and industry has adapted to the changes, the wastewater plants at those sites are no longer capable of processing the waste generated during production.
Anammox Treatment Technology - DEMON®
World Water Works’ DEMON process can solve the problem of returning high concentrations of ammonia to the plant influent. The true key to the success of the technology is the patented advanced biological process controls and the physical separation used to facilitate the growth and retention of the anammox bacteria.
Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) - Ideal MBBR™
World Water Works specializes in the combination of the MBBR technology with Integrated Fixed Film Activated Sludge (IFAS) technology or Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) technology for advanced wastewater treatment.
Getting A Better Handle On Sludge
If you're seeking innovation, take a few moments to hear Daniel Dair, VP of Innovation at World Water Works, describe the inDENSE process. The result of a research project first launched five years ago, the process increases clarifier settleability at conventional activated sludge treatment plants, with configurations that can also address biological phosphorus removal. Dair reports sludge volume index (SVI) improvements of almost 50 percent at some facilities, as well as increased clarifier loading rates and better management of solids retention time (SRT) and mixed liquor concentrations. Learn more in this video overview.
inDENSE™ Gravimetric Selection Technology
World Water Works inDENSE™ system increases process throughput and performance through the selection of dense sludge aggregates with improved settling rates and the promotion of enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR).
Ephrata Borough Authority Battles Chronic Sludge Settling
Ephrata Borough Authority WRRF, located in the MidAtlantic region of the United States, has been battling chronic sludge settling issues since undergoing a BNR upgrade in 2011 to meet new permit limits. During the winter months, SVI values have reached as high as 300 mL/g.
Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) Pilot System Achieves Removals In Excess Of 95 Percent
The aluminum casting facility of a producer of semifabricated aluminum products utilizes a closed-loop contact water system that supplies water to multiple DC casting pits. An existing induced air flotation (IAF) system was used for the reduction of TSS, NTU, oil and grease, followed by a cooling tower. The treated and cooled water was then reused in the caster as contact water. The IAF had a removal efficiency of approximately 40 percent, required regular maintenance attention, operated at 125 HP and used an excessive amount of chemistry, resulting in extraordinarily high operating costs.
MBBR-DAF System Drastically Reduced BOD And TSS Amounts Released Into Nearby Harbor
Ladysmith, BC is home to nearly 8,000 people on the western coast of Canada and has a history of coal mining, forestry, rail and marine industry. An existing wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) provided treatment to the town’s wastewater before discharging to the Ladysmith Harbor. The plant removed primarily particulate matter and suspended solids from the wastewater to be driven to a composting site. The existing system met some needs, but would not be able to achieve the future BOD and TSS effluent limits proposed to the town.
MBBR System Implements Nitrogen Reduction Plant Improvements
Hopewell Water Renewal (HWR) is a 50 MGD secondary wastewater treatment plant that treats the wastewater from local industries and domestic sources of the Hopewell, VA area. The plant began operating in 1977 and treats approximately 85% industrial waste. The facility achieves the treatment permit requirements for both BOD and TSS; however, treatment regulations have changed over the years and now require the removal of nutrients. HWR discharges effluent into Gravelly Run, a tributary of the James River and Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
MBBR-DAF System Provides The 'Perfect Solution' For Alchemist Brewery
Alchemist Brewery is a microbrewery specializing in brewing, packaging and distributing its award-winning IPA beer, Heady Topper. An unprecedented following of the signature ale drove the need for a larger brewery and retail sales center. The brewery operates with a profound respect for environmental responsibility, so with a new facility in the horizon, there was opportunity to explore wastewater treatment system options that would allow them to minimize their impact on the town’s wastewater infrastructure.
