Accelerated Biological Treatment

Packaged, skid-mounted wastewater treatment plants offer many advantages which includes lower installation cost, easy to locate at the site with quick turnaround, simple operation with low manpower requirements, low maintenance, user friendly, produces water that is regulatory compliant, long service life and can be designed for a specific application. Traditional treatment plants include aerobic treatment using suspended cultures, followed by clarification and tertiary treatment. Major issues with this conventional biological treatment are: (1) large footprint, due to slower biodegradation rates, especially in colder climates; (2) significant power consumption due to aeration requirements; (3) incapable of treating recalcitrant compounds; and (4) generation of waste sludge that has to be disposed.
