  1. Automated Solar Sludge Drying Frees Up Personnel
    6/6/2017

    Solar dryers are fully automated to feed, move, and discharge biosolids cost-effectively. Even climate changes throughout the year are easily monitored and controlled to produce optimal output. Installation is very flexible with options to add components at a later date. Full automation means employees seldom need to enter the greenhouse and are free to use their time elsewhere.

  2. A Sunny Outlook For Tooele City Water Reclamation Facility
    6/6/2017

    The City of Tooele, UT was looking to update their Bio-Solids program and move away from a limiting Class B product. They needed to produce a more flexible reusable material. The City found the Huber Technology SOLSTICE® to be the perfect solution and was pleased to discover the technology to be simple to maintain as well as provide a cost-effective operation. Find out how the dryer raised the quality of the bio-product to Class A.

  3. Significant Upgrades Enable City Of Atherton To Meet State’s DNR Discharge Requirements
    6/6/2017

    Built in the 1980s, Little Blue Valley Sewer District operates Atherton, which was designed to reduce the primary process chain to preliminary bar screening and aerated grit removal, while relying solely on secondary treatment performed in four, standalone 42-ft by 400-ft aeration/clarification basins. Read the full case study to learn how upgrading the activated sludge process with a combination of Xylem’s Flygt pumps and mixers created a solution for the city’s sewer district.

  4. Center Feed Drum Screen Is Mission Critical To World Class MBR Plant
    4/25/2017

    North Las Vegas has installed some of the largest rotary fine screens operating in the United States. The center feed drum screens are critical to protecting the membrane bioreactor, enabling the plant to maintain extremely low turbidity coming off their plant that is better than most potable water.

  7. Significant Energy Saving Resulting From Change Of Thickening Technology
    4/7/2017

    During the summer of 2015 the Waging WWTP in the Bavarian Chiemgau district was desperately looking for an energy-efficient, high-performance sludge thickening plant to replace the centrifuge they had been using. The objective was to optimize digester capacity, gas yield and sludge handling in the overall process on site. Read more about their successful implementation.

  8. Innovative Thickener Replaces Gravity Thickener And Improves Performance
    4/7/2017

    The Chiquita WRF plant was looking to improve the performance of their existing gravity thickeners better than the 2.3% DS that they were previously achieving. In their search for a solution they discovered the S-Disc technology from Huber Technology.

  9. Disc Thickener Technology Becomes Essential Key Component In Process
    4/7/2017

    BCR Environmental utilizes the Huber Technology S-Disc thickener in their sludge neutralization process. Because the system is both simple and reliable they chose to standardize on the S-Disc. The design of the technology enables the operators easy access to monitor their process. Read how BCR is putting the S-Disc to work.

  10. Creating Reusable Water From Municipal Sewage
    4/4/2017

    Al Shamal is the capital city of the municipality of Madinat ash Shamal in Qatar. With the majority of the town's population not yet connected to a sewer network, there was an immediate need to provide a wastewater treatment plant to treat wastewater generated from the towns' population and small industries. Ashghal, the Public Works Authority of Qatar and its end user, decided to install a tanker discharge facility with a compact sewage treatment plant to produce effluent suitable for reuse in irrigation.
