Biological wastewater treatment — which relies on microorganisms to break down organic waste — has a long history, and ranges from simple cesspits to conventional activated sludge plants all the way to technologically advanced solutions like MABR. Biological treatments rely on bacteria, nematodes, or other small organisms to break down organic wastes using normal cellular processes. Wastewater typically contains a buffet of organic matter, such as garbage, wastes, and partially digested foods. It also may contain pathogenic organisms, heavy metals, and toxins. The goal of biological wastewater treatment is to create a system in which the results of decomposition are easily collected for proper disposal. Biological treatment usually is divided into aerobic and anaerobic processes. Scientists have been able to control and refine both aerobic and anaerobic biological processes to achieve the optimal removal of organic substances from wastewater.
Wastewater treatment uses chemical and physical processes to solve specific problems. Screens, strainers and membrane technology, for instance, are employed to separate solids. Processes such as precipitation and nanofiltration remove heavy metals from wastewaters. Depending on the composition of the wastewater , the chemical and physical treatments often take place in individual steps. After selecting the ideal combination of procedures, our experts in project management will accompany you during the planning and construction of your plant. Wastewaters containing water insoluble substances or colloids are effectively treated through processes such as sedimentation, filtration and centrifugal separation.
The occurrence of pharmaceuticals in the environment has become a worldwide environmental concern. After administration and excretion, pharmaceuticals end up in wastewater treatment plants. These plants, typically employing biological treatment, are not designed for their removal. Hence, numerous pharmaceuticals are emitted into the environment. Chemical treatment processes like ozonation can effectively remove pharmaceuticals, however these costly processes have disadvantages such as high energy consumption and by-product formation.

Wastewater treatment is a process used to remove contaminants from wastewater or sewage and convert it into an effluent that can be returned to the water cycle with acceptable impact on the environment, or reused for various purposes called water reclamation. Pollutants in wastewater are removed, converted or broken down during the treatment process. The treatment of wastewater is part of the overarching field of sanitation. Sanitation also includes the management of human waste and solid waste as well as stormwater drainage management. The processes involved in waste-water treatment include physical processes such as settlement or flotation and biological processes such as aerated lagoons , activated sludge , or bio-films in trickling filters.
Wastewater has a lot of impact on the natural world and it is important to treat it effectively. By treating wastewater, you don't just save the creatures thriving on it, but also protect the planet as a whole. Our modern lifestyle provides us the luxury of using various products to make our lives more comfortable and easy, but it comes at a price. A common byproduct of our current lifestyle includes wastewater, which can either be in the form of water running down the shower or runoff from wet roads. This wastewater is unfit for human consumption or use.

This chapter elucidates the technologies of biological and chemical wastewater treatment processes. The presented biological wastewater treatment processes include: 1 bioremediation of wastewater that includes aerobic treatment oxidation ponds, aeration lagoons, aerobic bioreactors, activated sludge, percolating or trickling filters, biological filters, rotating biological contactors, biological removal of nutrients and anaerobic treatment anaerobic bioreactors, anaerobic lagoons ; 2 phytoremediation of wastewater that includes constructed wetlands, rhizofiltration, rhizodegradation, phytodegradation, phytoaccumulation, phytotransformation, and hyperaccumulators; and 3 mycoremediation of wastewater. Additionally, this chapter elucidates and illustrates the wastewater treatment plants in terms of plant sizing, plant layout, plant design, and plant location.
Погрузив ладони в складки жира на плечах шефа, она медленно двигалась вниз, к полотенцу, прикрывавшему нижнюю часть его спины. Ее руки спускались все ниже, забираясь под полотенце. Нуматака почти ничего не замечал. Мысли его были. Он ждал, когда зазвонит прямой телефон, но звонка все не .
Включился звук, и послышался фоновой шум. - Установлена аудиосвязь. Через пять секунд она станет двусторонней. - Кто это такие? - переминаясь с ноги на ногу, спросил Бринкерхофф. - Всевидящее око, - сказал Фонтейн, вглядываясь в лица людей, которых он отправил в Испанию.
Последний месяц был для Лиланда Фонтейна временем больших ожиданий: в агентстве происходило нечто такое, что могло изменить ход истории, и, как это ни странно директор Фонтейн узнал об этом лишь случайно. Три месяца назад до Фонтейна дошли слухи о том, что от Стратмора уходит жена.
