  • New Technologies Set To 'Disrupt' The Industry
    sure but it accounts for the fact that it may take 10 years or more for a new technology to go from lab to market adoption Meanwhile conventional technologies tend to improve their efficiency by up to 3 percent year over year therefore the new technology must start out with a sizable advantage to be truly disruptive when it finally hits the market Although Algeo cited 10 years as a typical timeframe for a technology to be commercialized he also noted that some products will take much longer to realize their potential UV disinfection dates back to 1910 for example but only took significant market share from chemical disinfection following the discovery of chlorination byproducts in the 70s and a cryptosporidium outbreak in the 90s Membrane bioreactors MBR were pioneered in the early 70s but never really took off until the 2000s Algeo thinks a similar scenario is taking place right now with ceramic membranes which have been around since the 1980s Ceramic Membranes According to BlueTech Research Studies have shown that ceramics achieve better performance than polymeric membranes in terms of flux stability and treated water quality Furthermore Algeo states that ceramic membranes have particular advantages in harsh industrial environments such as oil and gas Ceramics can handle aggressive chemicals and temperatures that would degrade polymeric membranes Because they are robust ceramic membranes can also be cleaned with aggressive chemicals that again would degrade their polymeric counterparts potentially reducing maintenance costs As the price point has continued to come down and with industrial wastewater and reuse an escalating concern the stage is set for ceramic membranes to make their mark to be disruptive in the coming years BlueTech reports that Based on current whole of life costs compared to polymerics in addition to likely decreases in cost as market volumes increase ceramics could cause a radical shift in the membrane market in the next decade UV LED Algeo was equally excited by the prospects UV LED which at the moment is in early stage commercial development As mentioned previously UV has been around for a long time but not quite like this Current UV systems for water wastewater disinfection utilize bulbs typically fluorescent tubes that contain mercury and are susceptible to breakage UV LED satisfies the unique criterion of disruptive technology in that it generates UV in a totally new less energy intensive way LEDs light emitting diodes are not powered by a filament but rather by the movement of electrons in a semiconductor material They are smaller and more robust than UV bulbs and can therefore be configured and used in a much wider variety of applications For instance UV LED can potentially be used on ships to disinfect ballast water an emerging market due to new regulations Another drawback for traditional UV is the inability to turn the system on and off without diminishing the life of the bulbs which require a warm up period before achieving full UV radiation UV LED on the other hand suffers

  • Selenium Removal Technologies A Review
    plugging and periodic backflushing is needed to remove dead biomass Typical media are sand or granular activated carbon GAC GE Water uses its ABMet process a PBR to biologically remove selenium with naturally occurring non pathogenic bacteria Nitrate can be removed in the same process ABMet bioreactors utilize a porous high surface area medium typically GAC Schematic depicting GE Water s ABMet biological process for selenium removal The FBR is an upflow attached growth system in which water passes through a granular solid medium at a high enough velocity to suspend the media This provides maximum contact between contaminants and the bacteria attached to the medium Typical media used are again GAC or sand Envirogen Technologies Inc has designed a small footprint FBR for selenium removal The process reportedly produces effluent concentrations less than 5 ug L even in the presence of high levels of nitrate Containerized FBR systems can be sized to treat a wide range of flows 100 to 3 000 gpm and influent water qualities Frontier Water s hybrid FBR containerized system for selenium removal at a California quarry Each of the two modules have a design capacity of 250 gpm Frontier Water provides a hybrid FBR system for selenium removal Frontier s modular system called SeHAWK has flow capacities of 50 to 1 000 gpm per unit with a smaller footprint than competitive systems Frontier has reportedly installed bioreactors currently removing 430 000 000 mg yr 950 lb yr of selenium from U S waters with HRTs as low as 40 minutes The MBBR is an FBR utilizing anoxic and aerobic treatment processes It uses a proprietary high surface area medium and includes post treatment of suspended solids and precipitated selenium The MBBR process by Veolia AnoxKaldnes has a small footprint and is designed to handle high total suspended TSS concentrations and large hydraulic variations The EBR has been used at a pilot scale to remove selenium and other inorganic contaminants from water It reportedly overcomes the shortcomings of conventional bioreactors by using an applied low voltage 1 to 3 volts to directly serve as an electron donor The process claims to provide more efficient selenium removal with a shorter residence time and a smaller footprint An initial EBR evaluation indicated over 25 percent lower capital costs and up to 50 percent lower O M costs than conventional bioreactors and other treatment technologies Constructed wetland treatment systems CWTSs have also been utilized to successfully remove selenium and other metals Nutrimens is a nutrient source distributed by Tersus Environmental to aid the biological treatment process Chemical Physical Treatment These technologies include oxidation reduction iron co precipitation ion exchange IX and adsorption Oxidation reduction Selenium species are rarely purposely oxidized as this may place them in the difficult to remove selenate state However reduced species such as selenocyanate common in stripped sour water in oil refining require oxidation to selenite or selenate for biological treatment to be effective A standard oxidant such as chlorine hydrogen peroxide or potassium
