  • A Super-Fine Solution To Sponge Up Micropollutants
    News January 7 2016 A Super Fine Solution To Sponge Up Micropollutants A super fine form of powdered activated carbon captures micropollutants more rapidly than the conventional kind and could by used in Swiss wastewater treatment plants say EPFL researchers in a new study Even at extremely low concentrations micropollutants trace amounts of chemical compounds from pharmaceutical or agricultural chemicals can pose a risk to aquatic ecosystems One way to reduce the amount released into the environment is by treating wastewater using powdered activated carbon In the lab researchers at EPFL have further improved this approach using a super finely ground variant of the powder which accelerated micropollutant removal rates by a factor 5 or more Their study which could potentially have future applications in Swiss wastewater treatment plants was published in the journal Water Research last month Swiss authorities have responded to increased micropollutant concentrations in Swiss lakes and rivers by calling for 100 wastewater treatment plants to be upgraded for enhanced micropollutant removal Ozone treatment which chemically transforms the micropollutants is one approach that has proven to be effective But when the wastewater contains certain chemicals such as bromides new toxic compounds can be generated Treatment using powdered activated carbon avoids this problem but is more expensive and requires more energy In the lab environmental chemists working with Tamar Kohn have now shown that using super finely ground powdered activated carbon has the potential to bring down the cost of micropollutant removal All ten representative micropollutants it was tested on were removed more efficiently in some cases up to 65 times as fast Achieving the removal target which Swiss authorities have set at 80 would therefore require both less time and less carbon As the next step we will have to test the approach in a pilot study

  • Certification Helps WPL Push Into French Market
    in France A Hampshire based manufacturer of packaged sewage treatment plants has successfully achieved accreditation to sell its Diamond compact range in France WPL was already certified for compact plants serving up to five population equivalent PE but has now been granted certification to serve up to 20 PE Under French legislation smaller packaged plants require additional certification beyond the standard EU regulation Brittany based Jon Strutt whose company Arti Construction distributes WPL treatment units in France said This new certification will enable us to push ahead and make new inroads into the French market The main advantage of the WPL Diamond compact plants is they have nothing electrical inside the plant there are no moving parts and nothing corrosive The design is pretty fool proof and extremely low maintenance WPL Diamond units are fitted underground and need only a small excavation due to the compact design The compact units which are among the smallest on the market will be transported in kit form and put together by a French team Spare parts maintenance after sales and service teams will all be based in France creating skilled jobs in the region Fully compliant Andrew Baird of WPL said Gaining this additional certification in France means WPL Diamond compact packaged plants can now be fitted to serve up to 20 PE All packaged plants which serve up to 50PE are covered by the ministerial approval NF 2015 011 and European standard EN 12566 3 However to be fully compliant smaller plants installed in France must also meet additional certification requirements Previously the company had approval for units of up to 5 PE but had not been granted certification for units serving up to 20 PE Gaining this certification means WPL customers in France can be confident the WPL Diamond packaged plant
