WASTEWATER FEATURES, INSIGHTS AND ANALYSIS

  • Combining Decentralized And Centralized Wastewater Treatment Strategies To Solve Community Challenges
    Combining Decentralized And Centralized Wastewater Treatment Strategies To Solve Community Challenges

    To sustain the environment and smart community growth while protecting public health, engineers, municipal health officials, and regulators need innovative wastewater treatment solutions. The latest evolution of decentralized systems can efficiently handle residential and commercial daily flows and are a cost-effective alternative to the large, centralized wastewater treatment plants of the past. 

  • Linking Technologies Key To A Successful Potable Reuse Project
    Linking Technologies Key To A Successful Potable Reuse Project

    Potable reuse offers a massive opportunity to recover water from the wastewater process, but projects face a variety of barriers to getting off the ground. Most successful early adopters engaged early with their constituents and implemented smaller-scale demonstration projects that were accessible to the public to prove the technology and process.

  • A Fresh Case For Investing In MBR To Improve Capacity And Effluent Quality
    A Fresh Case For Investing In MBR To Improve Capacity And Effluent Quality

    The membrane bioreactor industry has matured past the point of being an experiment or a niche technology. Advancements, as well as more recent adoptions by high-profile users, are providing wastewater treatment plant operators with more incentive and a better business case to retrofit their systems.

  • Resource Recovery: Monetizing The Hidden Assets Within Wastewater Plants
    Resource Recovery: Monetizing The Hidden Assets Within Wastewater Plants

    A growing number of wastewater treatment plant leaders are banking on newer technology to tap into previously unclaimed resources at their sites while addressing pressing issues. By looking at the process through a different lens and raising the bar when it comes to overall objectives, it is possible to shift facilities from being a cost center toward a revenue generator.

  • WWTP Wanted: Total Package, Self-Starter, Willing To Relocate
    WWTP Wanted: Total Package, Self-Starter, Willing To Relocate

    When it comes to providing wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) solutions for isolated, low-volume applications, it is true that good things can indeed come in small packages. The execution of membrane aerated biofilm reactor (MABR) technology in compact self-sufficient arrays — including transportable containerized units — now offers wastewater treatment with enhanced nutrient removal for stand-alone applications and remote points of use.

  • Enhancing WWTP Nutrient Removal, Without Overblown Costs
    Enhancing WWTP Nutrient Removal, Without Overblown Costs

    For those who appreciate the old maxim about catching more flies with honey, the logic of creating a more favorable biological environment for better biological nutrient removal (BNR) makes perfect sense. Worldwide implementations of flat-sheet membrane aerated biofilm reactor (MABR) technology are doing exactly that — in less space, with less energy, and with lower operating expenditure (OPEX) for aeration and chemical treatment. Here’s how:

  • Pushing Water Reuse To The Extremes
    Pushing Water Reuse To The Extremes

    Large-scale water-reuse treatment plants have had sustainable impact in populated areas where the volume of water to be treated and reused in a concentrated area makes them practical. Today, the flat-sheet membrane aerated biofilm reactor (MABR) technology that is delivering high-quality wastewater treatment to remote locations is poised to realize the promise of sustainable water reuse in those same locations.

  • MABR: Familiar WWTP Principles, Better Results
    MABR: Familiar WWTP Principles, Better Results

    Wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) designers and decision-makers tasked with finding more cost-effective performance for challenging applications want new options. Here is how flat-sheet membrane aerated biofilm reactor (MABR) technology tweaks the chemical and biological functions of conventional activated sludge (CAS) processes to reduce energy consumption and operating expenses (OPEX) in demanding applications.

    Among water treatment industry professionals, consensus is growing that small- to medium-scale decentralized desalination and wastewater treatment plants are the way forward in a water-stressed future. But governments continue to announce new water mega-infrastructure projects at an alarming rate. Because the public policy debate appears to have simply not caught up with current technology, many companies and NGOs with a focus on small- to medium-scale water treatment or renewable energy have begun to see the Caribbean as something of a new frontier.

    Wastewater Service Charges Continue To Rise

    Wastewater service charges vary considerably across EPA regions and States. That’s one of the key findings from the National Association of Clean Water Agencies’ (NACWA) Cost of Clean Water Index. If you live in Montana, Wyoming or the Dakotas (EPA Region 8), your average service charge of $261 a year is considerably less than the $884 your fellow Americans up in New England (EPA Region 1) are paying.  As you can imagine, much of the difference is to do with population size and geography.
