Wastewater Contaminant Removal White Papers & Case Studies

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. New Septage Receiving Plant Results In Decreased Maintenance
    2/21/2017

    Previously to installing their new Septage Receiving Station 18-Mile Creek WWTP had very little protection from unknown debris entering their plant from haulers. The plant reports that in the time that the RoFAS Septage Drum and WAP Washpress have been operating, they’ve processed many septage loads without issue.

  4. State-Of-The-Art Septage Station Handles Large Volumes Effectively
    2/21/2017

    When SAWS in San Antonio sought to upgrade their septage collection system they faced challenges beyond what might be normally seen in a typical WWTP. By partnering with Huber Technology, SAWS was able to navigate through challenges and put together a world class system.

  5. Florida County Partners With The WateReuse Association To Find The Best Use For Reclaimed Drinking Water
    2/14/2017

    In 2016 Hillsborough County Public Utilities, a forward thinking organization, initiated the first direct potable reuse pilot project in Florida. In its efforts to utilize 100 percent of its reclaimed water, the progressive utility created a successful program to effectively suspend surface water discharges. Read the full case study to learn more.

  6. Safe, Energy Efficient Disinfection For 45 MGD Combined Sewer WWTP Improves Water Quality
    2/14/2017

    The Hudson River, in the Capital District of Albany, NY, is a popular recreational area for boating, swimming and fishing. Unfortunately combined sewer overflows following storm events and snow melt from sewer systems dating back to the 1800’s were causing increased fecal coliform counts which in turn resulted in health alerts and limited access to the river. After considering several alternatives, the Albany County Sewer District selected a Wedeco Duron 60i2-2.5X4, with high power Ecoray 600W lamps, for their disinfection system.

  7. Project Profile: WWTP Dundee, Oregon Earns An Incentive By Reducing Energy Consumption With The Help Of ETS-UV™ Disinfection Systems
    2/3/2017

    The City of Dundee is a growing community with a strong economy boasting three wineries within the city limits and several others in the surrounding Willamette River Valley. The City’s existing WWTP was nearing capacity, and the limited discharge to the Williamette River would not adequately support Dundee’s planned growth.

  8. Aerobic Granular Sludge System Reduces Energy Up To 50% When Compared To Conventional Activated Sludge Systems
    2/1/2017

    The AquaNereda® Aerobic Granular Sludge System (AGS) is an innovative biological wastewater treatment technology that provides advanced treatment using the unique features of aerobic granular biomass. This advanced nutrient removal process can reduce footprint up to 75% and energy up to 50% when compared to conventional activated sludge systems.

  9. Plant Operations And Maintenance Staff Benefits From New Headworks
    2/1/2017

    The high cost of maintenance and unsatisfactory performance of the aging equipment in the Bonnybrook headworks made it clear that significant changes were in order. The older poorly performing headworks allowed screenings to pass to the downstream process units causing operational and maintenance problems. By installing the Huber RakeMax® and matching WAP washpress, Calgary’s process performance immediately improved.

  10. Replaced Screen Brings WWTP From The Stone Age To The Modern Age
    1/29/2017

    Havre WWTP was in search of a replacement solution that would improve their screening process. The old system often became plugged with rags. The City learned quickly to depend on Huber’s RakeMax technology to help it overcome its challenges. The highly effective technology enables the City’s operations to remove such a high percentage of inorganics that the downstream processing are more effective and components are less stressed.
