WASTEWATER TREATMENT

Zero Liquid Discharge – Maximum Recovery And Why It Finally Makes Sense
Zero Liquid Discharge – Maximum Recovery And Why It Finally Makes Sense

Our planet continues to become increasingly more crowded.  Pollution and waste are showing irreversible impact on a global scale, and it has become necessary to come up with solutions in all industries.  It is widely known, though perhaps not publicly thought of, that the process of purifying water creates waste.  As we remove the minerals and impurities from water, we inherently condense those impurities into a smaller body of water.  This waste affects the environment in various adverse ways.  The solution lies in a concept known as Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD).

WASTEWATER TREATMENT APPLICATION NOTES

  • Removal Of PFCs With Activated Carbon
    Removal Of PFCs With Activated Carbon

    In recent years, various perflorinated chemicals (PFCs) have come under increasing scrutiny due to their presence in the environment, in animals, and in human blood samples. There are two major classes of PFCs: perfluoroalkyl sulfonates such as perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and long chain perfluoroalkyl carboxylates such as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA).

  • Dissolved Oxygen Measurement In A Wastewater Treatment Plant
    Dissolved Oxygen Measurement In A Wastewater Treatment Plant

    Breakdown of organic wastes entering a wastewater treatment plant is accomplished by using a biomass or blend of beneficial microscopic organisms, bacteria, and solids. This converts the non-settleable solids (dissolved and colloidal matter) into settleable solids, carbon dioxide, water, and energy.

  • Application Bulletin: Reverse Osmosis
    Application Bulletin: Reverse Osmosis

    Osmosis is the phenomenon of lower dissolved solids in water passing through a semi-permeable membrane into higher dissolved solids water until a near equilibrium is reached

  • Determination Of Hexanal In Foods Utilizing Dynamic Headspace
    Determination Of Hexanal In Foods Utilizing Dynamic Headspace

    Hexanal is one of many well-documented aromatic components that contribute to flavor and aroma in common consumer food products containing omega-6 fatty acids. Hexanal content is also used to measure the oxidative status of foods rich in omega-6 fatty acids.

  • Determination Of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons In Seafood
    Determination Of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons In Seafood

    Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a large group of organic compounds found naturally in the environment. PAHs are monitored by the US Environmental Protection Agency due to their carcinogenic characteristics.

  • Aerated Biological Nitrogen Removal
    Aerated Biological Nitrogen Removal

    Excess ammonia in receiving waters causes algal blooms that decrease oxygen levels. For this reason, many wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) must limit ammonia in discharge. Mike Rousey, Hach Company

  • Disinfection And Emerging Contaminant Removal With HyDOZ®
    Disinfection And Emerging Contaminant Removal With HyDOZ®

    In the summer of 2012, BlueInGreen partnered with a facility in Arkansas to study disinfection of wastewater and removal of emerging contaminants of concern (ECC) by utilizing dissolved ozone. The plant has a firm capacity of 12 MGD and includes primary clarification, activated sludge, secondary clarification, and sand filtration prior to the existing UV system.

  • Degassing Boiler Feed Water in China with 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors
    Degassing Boiler Feed Water in China with 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors

    ShenLan Environment Inc. located in Shanghai, China uses 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors in their boiler feed water treatment systems. These systems realize lower operating costs with the added benefit of reducing the chemicals added to the boiler feed water.

  • Improved Efficiencies In TOC Wastewater Analysis For Standard Method 5310B And EPA Method 415
    Improved Efficiencies In TOC Wastewater Analysis For Standard Method 5310B And EPA Method 415 Total organic carbon (TOC) measurement is of vital importance to the operation of water treatment due to organic compounds comprising a large group of water pollutants. TOC has been around for many years, and although it is a relatively simple analysis in theory, operational efficiency is paramount.
  • Optimizing Air Flows To Aeration Basins
    Optimizing Air Flows To Aeration Basins

    As a result of clean energy mandates and the rising cost of energy, wastewater treatment facilities around the country are retrofitting their instrumentation to run highly efficient, cost-effective, clean facilities. To reduce emissions and produce clean energy, solid wastes are often digested in large digester tanks to reduce the volume of waste (sludge) and produce more biogas, which is then used as fuel in the cogeneration process. However, a clean environment calls for not just clean air and clean energy, but clean water as well.
