  • Slovenian Villages Connect To Mains Sewage Treatment
    the villages of Zdenska Vas Mala Vas and Cesta in an EU funded project Three High Performance Aerated Filter HiPAF units operating as a single treatment system at Zdenska Vas will be connected to a new mains sewerage system ending the reliance of the villagers on septic tanks Central European Sales Manager Frantisek Mikulinec of WPL said In countries such as Slovenia and the Czech Republic there are thousands of small remote villages and many are not connected to a sewerage system In small villages you can have very big fluctuation in flows throughout the day when people go to work Also temperatures in winter can fall to as low as 15oC The advantage of the HiPAF is that it can accommodate fluctuations in flow and temperature variations because submerged aerated filter SAF systems like the HiPAF adapt to loading changes more quickly than activated sludge flocs Intensive nitrification can occur even when the temperature is low due to biofilm thickness European funding Approximately 70 per cent of the funding for the project comes from the European Union Cohesion Fund which supports infrastructure projects A further 30 per cent comes from the local government which appoints the designer for the new sewerage systems Work on the Zdenska Vas and Mala Vas projects has been completed with work in Cesta expected to take place in early March 2016 Mikulinec said strong local connections helped the UK company secure the contract as well as the proven reliability of the core process WPL has more than 20 years experience of manufacturing packaged plants The company specialises in custom made plants which can treat to the highest environmental standards including sub 1mg per litre ammoniacal nitrogen and total nitrogen TON where required The great advantage of the WPL HiPAF system is that it is a very robust and reliable process which is what you need in these smaller villages WPL has a very close working relationship with Grosupje a Slovenian water utility and the contractor for this job In Slovenia WPL works with distributor F3M Levstek which is very well known and well respected company Low maintenance Each HiPAF unit has a treatment capacity of 235 population equivalent They will be fitted below ground in order to withstand the freezing temperatures in winter A shared walk in kiosk will house blowers manifolds and control panels for all three plants The HiPAF system uses a combination of fixed film and biomass reactions and is capable of achieving even the most stringent environmental standards The tanks are fitted with a forward feed system which lowers the level inside the tank during periods of low flow in order to create a balancing volume during surges WPL packaged plants are designed to be easy to maintain and if necessary each diffuser can be removed for maintenance without the need to shut down the plant Ongoing research In order to maximise efficiency once the systems are fully operational WPL will compare influent effluent and energy use from each village

  • NUS Researchers Develop Highly Efficient Nature-Inspired Membrane That Can Potentially Lower Cost Of Water Purification By 30 Percent
    cost effective methods for water purification Inspired by the natural water purification systems of the roots of the mangrove plant and the human kidney a team of researchers from the National University of Singapore NUS Environmental Research Institute NERI has engineered a novel biomimetic membrane that can purify water at low pressure thus reducing energy costs This new technology can potentially reduce water purification costs by up to 30 per cent The water purification industry today faces a major challenge of high energy costs incurred by current membrane systems to recover water from saline sources These industrial water purification processes are costly because they require high hydraulic or osmotic pressures to push water molecules to filter through the membrane systems Led by Associate Professor Tong Yen Wah who is also from the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the NUS Faculty of Engineering the team of researchers have designed and fabricated a new aquaporin incorporated biomimetic membrane water purification and treatment system that is highly efficient Aquaporins are membrane proteins that selectively conduct water molecules in and out of cells preventing the passage of ions and other solutes Nature s water purification systems Aquaporins also known as the water channels in living cell membranes have been found to be the functional unit of nature s water purification systems These channels present in all living things from bacteria to mangrove plants and human kidneys provide nature s examples of membrane structures that allow high volume of water molecules to pass through a small surface area at very low pressures leaving impurities like salt behind With the presence of aquaporin the mangrove plant which has adapted to survive in salt water is able to filter between 90 and 95 per cent of the salt at its roots while the human kidney is able to purify up to 150 litres of water daily Mimicking biological membranes The NUS team is among the first in the world to have succeeded in placing aquaporin proteins onto polymer membranes to act as channels that allow only water to go through very quickly at low pressures and low energy Explained Assoc Prof Tong The biomimetic membrane is constructed to mimic the layers of cells on the roots of mangrove trees by embedding nano sized aquaporin vesicles onto a stable and functional ultrafiltration substrate membrane using an innovative yet simple and easy to implement surface imprinting technology We found that the resultant aquaporin incorporated biomimetic membrane allows water to pass through it faster and also display lower salt leakage than a membrane without aquaporin Implications of findings and applications The team has also observed that the novel membrane exhibits high mechanical strength and stability during the water filtration process unlike conventional biomimetic membranes which tend to be quite fragile This makes it suitable for industrial applications in water treatment and desalination For the public this could mean greater supply of drinking water at much lower costs in the near future The team is currently in discussions with

  • Transportable Units Keep Treatment Moving For United Utilities
    closely with contractor Nomenca a total of five modular transportable Submerged Aerated Filter SAF units were purchased from WPL and installed to meet the 5Ml day flow through at Huyton WwTW The temporary nature of this application plus similar challenges across the utility s asset base led to UU s requirement that it should be possible to relocate the SAFs elsewhere within the region on completion of the project Andrew Haywood WPL s utility and industrial sales manager says In discussion with United Utilities and Nomenca a temporary solution was offered for Huyton A side stream treatment plant was required whilst refurbishment of an existing asset which needed to be taken off line was undertaken A range of temporary above ground portable off site build tertiary SAF units was proposed Using the clients specified loading rates five modules were required each designed to treat 1 Ml per day Redeployment request Although five ST1000 Model units were required for this project the modular nature of the equipment means it can be readily redeployed to other sites and configured in any combination as five units or just one The selected units which are housed in skid mounted kiosks and manufactured in steel are designed to be robust enough to withstand the rigours of transportation Each unit is container size and fits on the back of a lorry The package treatment plants including the blower panels are built at the factory prior to transportation to keep whole life costs low This means fewer workers are required on site which minimises health and safety concerns and installation can be completed in one day Flow challenge The five modular SAF tanks were arranged in parallel due to the restricted footprint but equal flow control still had to be mounted on each tank WPL advised Nomenca
