CASE STUDY Wastewater municipality saves $35 million with one-step nitrification/de-nitrificationThe Problem Trinity River Authority, TX (162MGD) needed an optimal nutrient removal strategy for a planned significant expansion in capacity. Assuming...
JDL Global Water, developer of FMBR technology, a low energy, small footprint decentralized wastewater treatment system (DEWATS). In JDL’s recent FMBR Pilot Demonstration at the Plymouth, Mass. Airport, the following savings were demonstrated.
77% energy savings
65% reduction of biosolids disposal
75% smaller footprint
Corncob, Inc.’s advanced membrane filtration system recovers clean water from any wastewater stream with 30% less capital, 50% less energy and an 80% smaller footprint. Corncob’s innovation continuously rotates a series of circular membranes installed along a horizontal axis thereby preventing suspended solids from adhering to membrane surfaces.
Probiotic Solutions® reduce biosolids, chemicals, aeration energy, dredging, sludge hauling and disposal costs of wastewater processes by stimulating beneficial microbes with proprietary, non-toxic, non-hazardous liquid formulations. A California municipality saved $6 million in dredging, hauling, disposal costs with a one year investment of $350 thousand.
Pulsed Burst Mega Bubble Mixers provide innovative, low-cost mixing solutions for wastewater treatment processes, using large bubbles that rise through the column of water to achieve effective mixing of solids. They are rugged, easy to install and maintain, only require low pressure air to operate, and have a self-cleaning design.
