WASTEWATER CONTAMINANT REMOVAL WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES

north_davis_utah_grit_upgrade (002) Self-Sufficient WRRF Completes In-House Grit Removal Upgrade

Aging, inefficient aerated grit facilities at North Davis Sewer District’s (NDSD) treatment plant headworks not surprisingly caused the typical headaches of poorly performing headworks:  downstream process tanks filled with grit and process equipment wore much faster than it should. And not surprisingly, it became a costly hassle for plant staff with annual basin cleanouts.

The Baia Mare Aurul gold mine in North Western Romania suffered a historic catastrophe in January 2000, when its dam burst, streaming out 100,000 cubic meters of waste water, largely contaminated with cyanide, commonly used in the process of mining gold, into tributaries of the Tisza River, a major waterway in Hungary.

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

WASTEWATER CONTAMINANT REMOVAL PODCASTS

For water utilities facing various water contamination issues, there is no single catch-all treatment. That is why in this recent Water Talk interview Ronit Erlitzki and Doug Craver of AdEdge Water Technologies share treatment options that can be used alone or in combination to address diverse challenges. They introduce a new reverse osmosis (RO) treatment technique capable of raising recovery rates by 20 percent and reducing concentrate volume up to 70 percent vs. conventional RO (depending on water quality). They also explore biological processes for removing nitrate, VOC, ammonia, etc. and treating high brine concentrations in wastewater, plus techniques for resolving ammonia problems in water with high TOC concentrations.

Not all water is the same, so don't be sold on a "one-size-fits-all" solution. Many treatment providers will attempt to fit a square peg in a round hole, while others — a select few, in fact — can provide a fit-for-purpose solution based on broad, customized capabilities. That's the pitch from U.S. Water Services, which recently became part of Japan-based Kurita Water Industries, a resource- and technology-rich company with global reach.

When a company stakes its reputation on delivering innovative technologies, products, and services, the specter of a changing regulatory landscape is considered more an opportunity than an obstacle. In this Water Talk interview, Mirka Wilderer, CEO of De Nora Water Technologies, discusses varying topics such as pharmaceuticals and nutrients in wastewater, the synergy of the company’s new MIOX and Neptune acquisitions, and how to address the growing concern over chlorate disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in drinking water. For example, De Nora’s new ClorTec Gen III onsite hypochlorite generators generate up to 3,000 lbs./day of chlorine-based disinfectants while reducing chlorate formation and cutting operating costs by 15 percent as compared to previously available models.

Engineered skid systems provide a compact configuration chemical feed at water and wastewater treatment plants. While these all-in-one metering pump solutions bring tremendous value to their users, traditional platforms have their pitfalls.

Capacitive deionization (CDI), sometimes called electrochemical demineralization, is referred to as Radial Deionization (RDI) by Atlantis Technologies, which has developed a proprietary form of the process. If you haven't heard of it by any name, or would like to know more about its considerable treatment capabilities, tune into this interview with Patrick Curran,

As water reuse becomes increasingly common, more utilities will get to know ozone. To explain its role in water treatment schemes, Water Talk welcomed Jim Lauria, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Mazzei Injector Company, and Ben Kuhnel, Senior Project Manager for Arcadis. Learn how ozone works in concert with other processes to safely recycle water and treat contaminants of emerging concern — even in mobile/on-site applications.

WASTEWATER CONTAMINANT REMOVAL VIDEOS

There is a lot to be excited about at De Nora lately. The recent acquisitions of two new companies is just part of the story, told in this video by Mirka Wilderer, CEO of De Nora Water Technologies. Wilderer is key to the wave of developments, as she only recently took the CEO mantle. Along with an introduction, this video from WEFTEC 2019 offers insight into trends and challenges facing the water/wastewater industry, including the most problematic contaminants and the ongoing struggle to update infrastructure. Potential solutions, as well as the roadblocks and drivers that can impact industry progress, are also identified.

Trojan Technologies has been providing treatment solutions for the water/wastewater market for four decades, but 2018 stands out as the year Stephen Bell joined as its new president. Water Online had opportunity to catch up with Bell at WEFTEC, where he talked about the company's culture, philosophy, and drive to innovate. One particular innovation is the TrojanUVFlex, a drinking water disinfection and advanced oxidation system for both potable and non-potable reuse applications, as well as the destruction of chemicals such as 1,4-dioxane. Tune in for an introduction to Bell and a summary of Trojan's unique technology.

Water. It’s vital to human life, our economy, and ecosystem - the very survival of our planet. But water challenges are growing more intense than ever before. Increasing volatile weather patterns fueled by climate change, crumbling infrastructure, pollution, and over population that is causing a surge in the demand for water. This means the world’s supply of clean water is rapidly declining putting our future at risk.

CFD modeling was used to design, position and validate performance of the new, patented flow conditioning vanes and post-injection blending grid. The same, proven mass transfer mixing nozzles used in the original pipeline flash reactor (PFR), are also part of the PFR+.
