Wastewater management systems

  • Umeå Wastewater Treatment Plant

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Within Umeå municipality there are a total of 19 wastewater treatment plants. The largest, Umeå Wastewater Treatment Plant, takes care of wastewater from households and various businesses in Umeå and surrounding villages. Every year, it receives about 13 million cubic meters of waste water, containing about 3000 tons of organic material and about 80 tonnes of phosphorus. The process of cleaning water demands a lot of energy, but the plant also produce biogas which gives 23 000 kWh per day. Clean water

  • Removal of Water-Borne Microorganisms Using Elemental Iron

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    This effective simple and versatile process removes microorganisms and reduces disinfection by-products from water using elemental iron. It can be incorporated into various treatment systems/devices and involves minimal maintenance and operation costs. This process has been proven to remove the viruses Φ X174 MS2 Aichivirus and Adenovirus 41 as well as bacteria such as E. coli O157:H7. It has been demonstrated that the elemental iron can reduce disinfection by-product precursors such as natural organic matter.

  • System for Controlling Wastewater Chlorine Concentration

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    The University of Florida is seeking companies interested in a system for controlling the chlorine concentration in the water effluent from wastewater treatment plants to better comply with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations and to reduce operational costs. This technology automatically regulates the time that the chlorinated water spends in the contact basin effectively compensating for the variability of residence (detention) time caused by inevitable daily and seasonal fluctuations in the inlet flow rates received by the plant.

  • VUNA - Nutrient Harvesting

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    By recovering nutrients from urine in small decentralized reactors we developed a dry sanitation system which is affordable produces a valuable fertilizer promotes entrepreneurship and reduces pollution of water resources.

  • (KOTEC10) System for organic waste reduction and energy recovery

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    This technology has been identified by KOTEC(Korea Technology Finance Corporation) for WIPO GREEN's project in waste water treatment sector. Any request for contacting the technology provider will be facilitated by KOTEC. This technology has been developed to reduce the organic wastes and convert them to energy and targeted at the sludge as by-products in wastewater treatment.

  • MSABP Multi-Stage Activated Biological Process Wastewater Treatment System

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    MSABP is water purification technology based on a revolutionary biological treatment process in which a special biological carrier provides immobilization of microorganisms in a multi-stage aeration tank. Principles of treatment are as follows. 1. The effect of multi-stage changes the biota in each tank in an orderly manner thereby forming a food chain. 2. The biological carrier provides an environment in which microorganisms remain active and are able to treat highly concentrated effluent and hard to decompose effluent. MSABP can be used for the following applications. 1.

  • High Throughput Filtration of Oil-Containing Wastewater using a Carbon Nanotube-Infused Membrane

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    A carbon nanotube-infused filtration membrane for higher throughput filtration of oil-containing wastewater. The structure of the membrane reduces fouling and increases mechanical strength thereby increasing filter lifespan and and enabling cheaper wastewater filtration. The membrane has application in industries needing to manage the disposal of oil-water emulsions such as oil fields metallurgical pharmaceuticals and petrochemicals.

  • Hybrid Lagoon System ("HLS")

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    HLS is a wastewater treatment technology featuring unique architecture of plants way of treatment and functions of microorganisms comparing with competitive Continuous Wastewater Treatment Technology with Activated Sludge ("CWTTAS").

  • Municipal Sewage Treatment System

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Wastewater treatment comprising seven stages include physical treatment (large solids separation of heavy particles and decanting) three biological treatments (degradation of organic matter) and a chemical treatment that involves chlorination. Also includes a sludge collection phase. The system achieves an average treatment efficiency of 95% in terms of total suspended solid (TSS) and biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) complying with the Mexican standard 001-SEMARNAT-2009.
