Performance Boost at STP, The Middle East
Two BioGill® bioreactors were installed to demonstrate the application of BioGill® technology as a performance boost at the overloaded STP.
To help the existing STP handle shock loads and daily peaks volumes, a parallel stream of sewage influent is pumped to a recirculation tank after primary screening (down to 1mm). A pump then carries the wastewater to the top of the BioGill® unit where it is gravity fed over and down the gills.
Ultimate removal rates as high as 7gBOD/m2 per day and 1gNH4-N/m2 were achieved after complete biomass establishment. In addition, Soluble Biochemical Oxygen Demand (S-BOD) was reduced to less than 8 mg/L after 4.5 hours of treatment (15m3/unit per day).
These findings show that BioGill® technology can be effectively used for the upgrade of overloaded STPs to improve capacity and performance.
Your journey to lowered BOD and COD site levels starts with BioGill®, and we’re just a click away if you want help getting up and running.
