Waste Water Treatment by Algae

Waste Water Treatment by Algae

Waste water treatment is gaining much importance in recent years with the intension of reusing it. For the treatment of wastewater large amount of materials are to be supplemented. Nutrient rich wastewater instead of discharging into environment is supplemented for the growth of algae in the wastewater treatment. Thus nutrients can be reused and wastewater can be treated and thus reducing the negative impacts. As the algae takes up N and P, the wastewater can be treated with algae. This paper explains wastewater treatment by macroalgal species.

A REVIEW ON WATER AND SEWAGE WATER TREATMENT PROCESS

A REVIEW ON WATER AND SEWAGE WATER TREATMENT PROCESS

In ancient Greek and Sanskrit (India) writings dating back to 2000 BC, water treatment methods were recommended. People back than knew that heating water might purify it, and they were also educated in sand and gravel filtration, boiling, and straining. After 1500 BC, the Egyptians first discovered the principle of coagulation. They applied the chemical alum for suspended particle settlement.After 500 BC, Hippocrates discovered the healing powers of water. He invented the practice of sieving water, and obtained the first bag filter. In 300-200 BC, Rome built its first aqueducts. Archimedes invented his water screw.During the Middle Ages (500-1500 AD). In 1627 the water treatment history continued as Sir Francis Bacon started experimenting with seawater desalination. He attempted to remove salt particles by means of an unsophisticated form of sand filtration. In the 1700s the first water filters for domestic application were applied. These were made of wool, sponge and charcoal. In 1804 the first actual municipal water treatment plant designed by Robert Thom, was built in Scotland. In 1854 it was discovered that a cholera epidemic spread through water. The

The Study of Waste Water Treatment of CETP

The Study of Waste Water Treatment of CETP

IJSRR, 8(1) Jan. – Mar., 2019 Page 3022 ferric (iron) salts, which bond to the suspended particles, making them less stable in suspension, i.e., more likely to settle out. Flocculation is the binding or physical enmeshment of these destabilized particles, and results in flocks that is heavier than water, which settles out in a clarifier. 10 The Concept of CETP is different from STP in two aspects: homogeneity and biodegradability. Composition of effluents from different industries varies widely depending on process and products. When mixed effluent from different industries the nature of effluent becomes heterogeneous and treatment process becomes challenge. The organic compounds present in industrial effluent are hard to biodegrade compared to domestic waste water. 11 The use of constructed wetlands is now being recognized as an efficient technology for wastewater treatment. Compared to the conventional treatment systems, constructed wetlands need lesser material and energy, are easily operated, have no sludge disposal problems and can be maintained by untrained personnel. 12 An estimated 38354 million liters per day (MLD) sewage is generated in major cities of India, but the sewage treatment capacity is only of 11786 MLD. In Delhi around 3296 MLD (Million Liters per day) of sewage is dumped in the River. 13 The treatment methods adapted in these plants are dissolved air floatation, dual media filter, activated carbon filter, sand filtration and tank stabilization, flash mixer, clariflocculator, secondary clarifiers and Sludge drying beds, etc. Coarse material and settable solids are removed during primary treatments by screening, grit removal and sedimentation. Treated industrial waste water from CETPs mixed disposed in rivers. One of the major problems with waste water treatment methods is that none of the available technologies has a direct economic return. Due to no economic return, local authorities are generally not interested in taking up waste water treatment. 14

MEMBRANE APPLICATION IN WATER TREATMENT

MEMBRANE APPLICATION IN WATER TREATMENT

Beside, indiscriminate use of pesticides and fertilizers in agriculture for better production of crops lead to the pollution of ground and surface water by agricultural run off. The untreated industrial effluents sometimes may end up into the surface water bodies. In most of the rural areas of the developing countries people use untreated lake and river water for their household, cooking and above all for drinking purposes. In places, where it is treated, the treatment procedure is not sufficient to remove the contaminants up to a certain limit as prescribed by the regulatory authorities for drinking water. Moreover, conventional drinking water treatment methods are not very much suitable to remove some toxic chemicals from raw water. Beside, some chemicals are added in an unplanned manner to the water during the conventional treatment, which have adverse impacts on the human health. The polluted surface water after proper treatment can be used as drinking water.

earth. The availability of water varies among different places. In some places the quality and quantity of water obtained is not satisfactory. Due to population explosion water demand increased to its peak limit which in turn lead to scarcity of water. Many of the places in Kerala are seriously affected by these problem due to lack of an efficient water supply system. Careful examination of water sources and proper treatment of water with an efficient water supply system can overcome these problems to a great extent. In this project we have planned to design an efficient water treatment plant which makes the water useful for drinking purpose. This project deals with the design of various components of water treatment plant at Peelarmozhi , Chalakudy. The water from Kappathodu canal is directed to the pond near the site by constructing a weir across the canal and the water undergoes proper treatment before it is dispatched.

Novel Coagulants for Raw Water Treatment

Novel Coagulants for Raw Water Treatment

Abstract— According to “World Health Organization (WHO) standards” and “Indian Standard Drinking Water- Specification” water turbidity should be less than 5 Nephelometric Turbidity Units (NTU). To achieve the standard turbidity lot of chemical coagulants are used in water purification, due to economical and health effects, the natural and low cost materials are preferable over chemical coagulants. Although the use of natural coagulant protein in drinking water treatment has been discussed for a long time and this method is still not in practice, probably due to availability of material and limited knowledge. Turbidity imparts an enormous problem in raw water treatment. The present study made an attempt to evaluate the effectiveness of locally available tamarind seed endosperm and kernel powder, as natural coagulant for reduction of turbidity in the quality improvement of raw water. This involves changing the pH values, concentrations, temperatures, Stirring time and Stirring rates. Finally achieved treated water turbidity less than 5 NTU.

Water Treatment Improvement by Ultrasonic Approach

Water Treatment Improvement by Ultrasonic Approach

Abstract Water as the most prominent substance on the earth, needs treatment to use. On the other hand, different impurities with different physical or chemical specifications should be purified by specific additive materials and methods. Recently, Nanomaterials as additives instead of common materials have been used to eliminate water impurities what made water treatment more efficient because of Nano size extraordinary physical potentials, but they also can pollute water that their elimination would be more difficult and needs specific methods. Then, Nanoparticles are one of the most important impurities what needs precise treatment. There are some different common processes to demolish Nano impurities, but ultrasound as mechanical wave in aqueous area not only is capable to eliminate them from water but also it is the most powerful and efficient method to effect on nanoparticles.

A review: waste water treatment

A review: waste water treatment

The quality of water is vital concern for mankind since it is directly linked with human health. It is a matter of history that pollution of drinking water cause water born dieses which wipe out the entire population of cities. Polluted water is one of the issue with all of the chemical industries because it is discharge directly to the river and sea. So it is required to do the treatment of waste water which is generated in chemical industry and discharge it in specification given by pollution control board. One of the major aspects in the treated water is necessity of oxygen. The concentration of oxygen in water should be optimum. For this major oxygen demand is divided in to biological oxygen demand and chemical oxygen demand. For maintaining the oxygen content in water as well as some other nutrient and elements, the waste water treatment is required. Waste water treatment is divided in the three distinguished treatments. (1) Primary treatments (2) Secondary treatments (3). Tertiary treatments.

Innovations in nanotechnology for water treatment

Innovations in nanotechnology for water treatment

Both CNTs and nanometals (see section on Nanometals and nanometal oxides) are highly effective nanoadsorbents for the removal of heavy metals such as arsenic. With regard to this application field, nanometals and zeolites benefit from their cost-effectiveness and compatibility with existing water treatment systems since they can be implemented in pellets and beads for fixed absorbers. In contrast, the production of CNTs is very costly, and additional technical devices, for example, membrane filtration plants, have to be integrated in order to make absolutely sure that no nanoparticles are discharged into the aqueous environment. A major advantage of CNTs in terms of micropollutant removal is their strong adsorption capacity for polar organic compounds due to the diverse interactions between contaminants and CNTs. Given that up until now CNTs have not been cost-competitive when compared with broad-spectrum adsorbents like activated carbon, future applications will focus on highly specific adsorption processes, where only small quantities of CNTs are required, or on novel applications where CNT is the only suitable adsorbent.

Nanofiltration in drinking water treatment

Nanofiltration in drinking water treatment

their removal is important to avoid undesired interferences in drinking water treatment processes and impaired water quality. With membranes that have a molecular weight cut-off of 1 – 5 kD (see Table 2), which means NF and the lower range of UF, the necessary removal is achieved for colour and other components. This is illustrated in Figure 4, showing rejection values for various membranes and parameters in Norway [4]. It can be seen that if removal of colour and TOC (NOM) is the prime target for the treatment, NF is the best process. But it is not desirable to remove the scarce minerals in soft water and therefore many NOM removing plants operating on soft water with moderate colour (<40 ppm Pt) apply tight UF membranes. For simplicity all NOM plants operating on such water sources are called NF plants for simplicity, because all major properties of these plants are the same. It can also be seen that iron is efficiently removed as this compound is primarily bound in organics and as hydroxides, whereas manganese and partly calcium are soluble and show low removal efficiency. It is not desirable to remove hardness and trace minerals in surface waters in the actual areas, as the water is naturally soft. Such solutes are beneficial with respect to health and corrosion.

Virginia Household Water Quality Program: Household Water Treatment

Virginia Household Water Quality Program: Household Water Treatment

It is critical to have a water sample analyzed by an independent, certified lab and to consult a professional before purchasing any water treatment equipment. Keep in mind that no single water treatment device treats all problems, and all devices have limitations. In many cases, there are multiple household water quality issues that must be addressed. In these situa- tions, a combination or system of treatment devices may be needed. The water treatment system designer must consider the type and concentration of the various impurities to be removed and the intended use for the treated water (e.g., drinking and cooking versus laun- dry, bathing, or flushing toilets). The initial cost as well as the operating costs must be considered when select- ing water treatment equipment.

Optimal Water Treatment In Pharma Industry

Optimal Water Treatment In Pharma Industry

Most commonly used systems are the accepted conventional practices, such as precipitation, coagulation, filtration, and sedimentation. Dispersed, suspended as well as colloidal particles producing turbidity and waters colour, cannot be removed sufficiently by the actual sedimentation and or other processes. In addition, a coagulant, mixing, and stirring the water cause the formation of settable particles. These flocks are huge enough as to settle rapidly subject to nature's gravity, and can be removed from the suspension by the method of filtration. Chemical precipitation units, coagulation and flocculation aids are usually being added, to facilitate the formation of huge agglomerated particles. These tiny particles are very simple to remove from the water. The precipitants, as well as other suspended solids, are often have similar or other neutral surface charges which repel one another. The coagulants, bounding to particles in the waste water systems, especially convert the surface charge, yielding, opposite charges from between particles, making them to form agglomerates. Use of inorganic metal salts, normally Al and Fe for agglomeration is very well conventionalized in the area of water treatment. Flocculent additives, typically anionic polymers, and are added to furthermore to enhance the coagulation of tiny particles. The degrees of clarification obtained will depend on the quantity of chemicals, being used, time of mixing, and control of process. One of the high disadvantages of coagulation is the processing and disposal of sludge resulting from chemical precipitation process. The volatile organic compounds are being removed by aeration.

Study of the Magnetic Water Treatment Mechanism

Study of the Magnetic Water Treatment Mechanism

The main problem of widespread introduction of magnetic water treatment (MWT) in the processes of water and wastewater treatment is the lack of modern research aimed at studying the mechanisms of MWT effects, in particular the influence on the physicochemical properties of aqueous solutions. This study explains the effect of MWT taking into account the physical and chemical properties of aqueous solutions due to the presence of the quantum differences in water molecules. All of the MWT effects are related to the change in the physicochemical properties of aqueous solutions. It is due to the presence of two types of water molecule isomers and their libra- tional oscillations. The result of MWT is a violation of the synchronism of para-isomers vibrations, with the sub- sequent destruction of ice-like structures due to the receiving of energy from collisions with other water molecules (ortho-isomers). One of the most important MWT effects includes the change in the nature and speed of the physi- cochemical processes in aqueous solutions by increasing the number of more physically and chemically active ortho-isomers. The MWT parameters specified in the work allow explaining the nature of most MWT effects and require developing the scientific and methodological principles for the implementation of the MWT process and mathematical modeling of the MWT process in the water and wastewater treatment. It can be used in the design of the MWT devices taking into account the constructive and mode parameters of MWT devices.

Cost assessment of Produced Water Treatment

Cost assessment of Produced Water Treatment

One of the four categories of treatment for the produced waters considered in this work is liquid/solid separation. Processes for liquid/solid separation remove particulate material and associated contaminants from produced water. In particular, heavy metals are often sorbed to the suspended solids in the produced waters and will thus be removed along with these solids. Also, emulsified hydrocarbons may be removed. Package or "off the shelf" technologies are likely to be most appropriate for low flow rates encountered in produced water treatment. These package plants are standard, commercial technologies, assumed in this work to consist of unit processes for chemical addition, initial mixing, flocculation, settling, and dual media (or diatomaceous earth) filters. The cost of these units typically scale as a function of the treated water flow. Package treatment plant costs are made up of three main components: capital costs, operation and maintenance costs, and the residual waste stream management costs of the plant (usually treated as additional operating costs). Additional capital investments for residual disposal may also be required. The costs provided by Gumerman et al., (1979) are used to estimate both the capital and operations and maintenance costs for the package plant treatment. Volume 1 of the 4 volumes written by Gumerman et al., (1979) contains the package plant
