Advanced Filtration Dynamic Membrane Technology

CORNCOB advanced filtration dynamic membrane technology can convert nearly any wastewater stream into clean reusable water in a small footprint, Decentralized Wastewater Treatment System (DEWATS). Compared to innovative DEWATS biological processes, such as FMBR, CORNCOB is ideally suited for wastewater streams that are less suitable for biological treatment such as landfill leachate.

Case Study: CORNCOB Landfill Leachate Solution

A medium size municipal landfill in Monroe County, Wisconsin faced the threat of shutdown if it could not solve its growing leachate problem. It’s average daily leachate production was 10,000 gallons per day which was hauled and disposed of offsite 365 days per year.

The Corncob solution provided an onsite landfill leachate treatment & recovery system that recovered clean NPDES permittable water and eliminated the need for offsite hauling and disposal.

4 Keys to Reducing Costs and Improving Results with Wastewater Lagoons


1. Encourage Naturally Forming Microbes

Naturally forming microbes can remove ammonia, facilitate biosolids settling, reduce TSS levels in effluent, consume biosolids, and minimize biosolids buildup in lagoon basins. (See Case Study: Wastewater municipality saves $35 million in capital with a one-step nitrification process).

2. Measure the Biological Process

Microbe Detectives’ DNA analysis services allow you to see, measure, and control all the microbes that remove and recover Carbon (C), Nitrogen (N), and Phosphorus (P) from waste streams, digest organic waste, and produce clean renewable resources.


3. Add Biostimulants

Biostimulants can facilitate significant savings in biosolids disposal costs by enhancing natural biological processes. (See Case Study – Wastewater municipality saves $6 million in lagoon biosolids costs with a $0.35 million investment in biostimulants in one year).

4. Optimize Mixing & Aeration

Wastewater lagoons often do not have sufficient mixing or aeration to achieve optimal results. Mega bubble mixing can provide an effective mixing and aeration solution at low cost, enabling naturally forming microbes to produce superior results. (See Example Application – mega bubble mixing in an anaerobic zone of a wastewater treatment process)

Wastewater Lagoon Problems Worth Solving

  • Sub-optimal Ammonia Removal
  • Elevated TSS levels in Lagoon Effluent
  • Increasing Biosolids Dredging and Disposal Costs
  • Decreasing Lagoon Processing Capacity
  • Liability Exposure
  • Environmental Contamination Risks of Offsite Solids Disposal
