SMART4BIOENERGY – WATER TREATMENT PLANT

PURPOSE:

The development is intended for innovative treatment of municipal wastewater through the implementation of new design solutions, process automation and utilization of the energy potential of wastewater.

DESCRIPTION:

For the first time, based on the established parameters and operating modes (the power-off period, hydrodynamic shear forces, the height to diameter ratio of the reactor, the aeration-sedimentation period) granules of activated sludge are formed during incubation of activated sludge under conditions of aeration and/or deaeration on municipal wastewater of Ukraine and used the energy potential of wastewater by heat pump units to meet consumer needs.

ADVANTAGES:

Among the main advantages of municipal wastewater treatment plants, granular activated sludge is:

      • the formed granule of activated sludge contains three zones (aerobic, anoxic and anaerobic) and has a size of 0.5-2 mm; the process of separation of the sludge mixture is 5-7 minutes at a sludge concentration of 8 g / l (the separation of traditional free-floating sludge, which is used at most treatment plants in Ukraine, takes 30-50 minutes at a sludge concentration of 2-3 g / l);
      • reduction of the required area for construction up to 75% compared with traditional options for municipal wastewater treatment;
      • energy saving for aeration and sludge pumping up to 50%;
      • reduction of greenhouse gas and methane emissions;
      • reduction of capital and operating costs and construction and/or reconstruction;
      • reduced payback period.

RECOMMENDED FIELD OF APPLICATION:

Implementation of treatment plants for individual or collective consumers.

RESULTS OF THE RESEARCH:

Revision required.

STAGE OF THE DEVELOPMENT READINESS:

Test mode.

TRANSFER OPPORTUNITY:

Joint bringing to the industrial level.

NOVELTY:

3 patents of Ukraine.
