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.

Enhanced Biological Phosphorus Removal – Who’s doing the work?

  Enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) was first documented in the early 1970’s. Traditionally it has been understood that EBPR requires a first stage anaerobic zone that is free of nitrate and nitrite. In the anaerobic zone, phosphorus accumulating organisms (PAO) utilize energy from stored polyphosphate to assimilate volatile fatty acids (VFAs) and produce polyhydroxybutyrate… Read More
