NUTRIENT REMOVAL RESOURCES

  • Integrated Solutions Drive Resource Recovery And System Resiliency

    Traditional approaches or wait-and-see tactics, which at times can save the day, too often result in missed opportunities for incremental improvements that could act as building blocks of a long-term strategy. Integrated solutions can reveal this strategy road map for a resilient and reliable water infrastructure system.

  • How To Utilize Electrocoagulation For Efficient Phosphorus Removal In Wastewater

    In this article, we will discuss what phosphorus is, the effects of elevated phosphorus levels on an ecosystem, and how innovative electrocoagulation technology can be sustainably used for effective phosphorus removal in wastewater and water sources.

  • Your Sewage Is Valuable Muck

    A world without phosphorus is a world without life. But phosphorus is a finite resource, so researchers are recovering it from sewage.

  • Sidestream Enhanced Biological Phosphorus Removal Made Easier

    Some excellent progress has been made in recent years on sidestream enhanced biologic phosphorus removal, but a current project promises to advance the practice even further.

  • Nutrient Sensor Action Challenge Winners: Data And Decisions To Manage Excess Nutrients

    Nutrients in the environment from excess nitrogen and phosphorous can result in negative impacts on water quality. EPA is improving nutrient management by incentivizing the development of low-cost technology solutions, such as nutrient sensors, in collaboration with USGS, USDA, NIST, NOAA, and the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS).

  • WRF Hosts Capitol Hill, State-Of-The-Science Briefing On Harmful Algal Blooms

    To make informed decisions about how to limit exposure to cyanotoxins, utilities need information to select and implement a comprehensive and technically sound management approach. The Water Research Foundation (WRF) has been actively involved in developing effective innovative solutions to help utilities address this challenge and protect public health.

  • Aerobic Treatment Unit (ATU) System Design Tips And Operations Variables

    Providing a suitable environment for microorganisms to treat wastewater is what aerobic treatment units (ATUs) are all about. These advanced systems outshine alternatives on tight lots where there is no room for conventional treatment and on sites with poor soils, shallow vertical separation distances to limiting conditions, and horizontal setback restrictions. Some systems can be designed for the treatment of high-strength wastewater or where total nitrogen removal is required.

  • Aerobic Digester Reduces Nutrient Return And Improves Energy Efficiency

    Faced with rising operational costs due to increasing energy and chemical prices, as well as stricter effluent permit limits, many operators and engineers are turning to performance optimizers and controls automation to enhance treatment processes and reduce operating costs while limiting capital expenses.

  • Understanding And Coping With Struvite/Vivianite Formation In WWTPs

    Based on wastewater properties, various types of mineral buildup can affect wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) piping. With their impacts on plant energy efficiency and potential restriction of throughput capacity, keeping pipes free-flowing is an important aspect of WWTP operations. Here’s guidance for coping with two common problems associated with phosphorus concentrations in wastewater — struvite and vivianite.

  • EPA Uses Floating Vegetated Islands To Remove Excess Nutrients From Water

    Harmful algal blooms — the overgrowth of algae in water — are a major problem across the nation. Blooms occur when excess nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus), combine with sunlight, and warm temperatures in water bodies. They can cause severe, negative impacts on aquatic ecosystems, the economy, and human health.

NUTRIENT REMOVAL SOLUTIONS

  • SUBRE: Submerged MABR Solution

    SUBRE, a highly effective upgrade solution for wastewater treatment plants, intensifies the biological nutrient removal process and increases plant's capacity with no added footprint and reduced energy requirements. SUBRE utilizes Fluence’s Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor (MABR) technology to achieve a stable and high quality effluent.

  • Denitrification Featuring Snap-T® Block Underdrain

    The DE NORA TETRA™ Denite® system combines denitrification and filtration for the effective removal of nitrate-nitrogen and suspended solids in a single treatment step. Unique SNAP-T® Block underdrain provides superior distribution of backwash air and water, resulting in more efficient bed cleaning and reduced filter operating costs. Revolutionary interlocking grid design has no moving parts and resists uplift without the need for grout or anchors.

  • OMNIFLO® Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) MAX System

    Evoqua's OMNIFLO® SBR MAX system with Jet Tech technology combines the benefits of a true-batch SBR with the benefits of a continuous fill batch reactor process to treat wastewater influent flows to over 5 times design.  The OMNIFLO SBR MAX system optimizes hydraulic handling during storm flows, reduces equipment sizing and cost, and can trim energy costs over 15%!

  • Aspiral™ Packaged Wastewater Treatment Solution (MABR)

    Aspiral™ is a smart, packaged wastewater treatment solution based on the Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor (MABR) technology.

  • Vorelodos

    Often times the biosolids management portion of the treatment plant may not be optimized, resulting in inefficient operation of the entire treatment plant. For instance, did you know that aerobic digestion is the second largest consumer of energy after biological treatment aeration at a wastewater treatment plant? Or, do you realize that up to 50% of the nutrient loading on any given day may be coming from the biosolids process?

NUTRIENT REMOVAL VIDEOS

The need to recycle wastewater has grown dramatically in various markets. Due to the increasing drought, rural villages suffer from lack of water for agricultural needs. Fluence delivers a revolutionary aerobic wastewater treatment solution is modular and reduces energy usage by up to 90% compared to conventional treatment.
