Ultimate Monitoring Solution for Biological Wastewater Treatment [Infographic]

Wastewater treatment plant staff do their best to optimize the health of microbes in their bioreactor.

However, without a direct way to measure active biomass, process optimization is very difficult achieve. Additionally, toxicity occurrence can cause the plant to deviate from effluent quality compliance and result in violations. These events tend to happen with little or no warning, and with no way to quantify live biomass, it becomes very difficult to assess the damage done.

The solution? A reliable and direct measurement of the living biomass, available from LuminUltra.

By knowing the size and health of your active biomass population, its response to process changes can be immediately assessed. As a result, all key process variables can be optimized. The alternative is to rely on solids measurements. This alternative does not isolate what is alive against what is not, is slow in its response to process changes. Solid measurements do not serve as the basis for optimization.

Sequencing Your Bioreactor – Who’s Doing the Work?

  Metagenomics through the incorporation of next generation sequencing (NGS) is changing the way wastewater treatment plants are monitored and understood. NGS can be used in aerobic and anaerobic systems to monitor for problematic organisms, such as filamentous and foaming bacteria, and beneficial organisms, such as ammonia-oxidizing bacteria and methanogens. NGS is also allowing old… Read More
