Development of a Real-Time Intelligent Platform for Wastewater Influent Forecasting

2019/20 • $34,960
Municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) require reliable influent forecast for the design, operation, and control of wastewater treatment processes. Inaccurate estimates of influent flow and load could easily lead to poor treatment performance and high operating cost. The complex...

A hybrid modeling, monitoring and control approach for wastewater treatment plants

2019/20 • $12,800
Wastewater treatment plants are currently designed using fairly detailed first principles models that are able to capture the dominant dynamics of the process, but not necessarily predict the variables very accurately. The calibration of these models for a new plant site remains a significant...

Lambton Water Centre (LWC)

2012/13-2018/19 • $2,300,000
There is a growing provincial and federal interest as discussed in the Federal and Ontario Innovation Agendas in the improvement, development and commercialization of water and waste water treatment technologies and systems; both for municipal and industrial applications. Saturation of existing...

Integrating mechanistic and data driven approaches for modeling waste water treatment plants

2018/19 • $25,000
Hydromantis is the global leader in water and wastewater treatment simulation technology and modelling*services and the developer of the most popular software solutions for the industry. The company provides*expert modelling services for wastewater treatment plant design, commissioning,...

Characterization of Temporal Patterns in Influent Quality for Wastewater Treatment Plants

2017/18 • $25,000
Hydromantis is one of the Canada's leading companies in wastewater treatment simulation. Hydromantis isdedicated to improving the efficiency of wastewater treatment through process engineering analysis using theirstrength in wastewater treatment process simulation. The efficiency of wastewater...

Development of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance methods for the prediction of wastewater response to treatment

2017/18 • $25,000
This project explores the use of use of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to provide uniqueinsight into the changes of the composition of organic material in wastewater during treatment. NMRspectroscopy is a powerful analytical method to acquire molecular-level information regarding...

Data pre-processor for wastewater treatment simulations

2015/16 • $25,000
Wastewater treatment processes are complex systems with many interconnected unit processes performing physical, chemical and biological transformations to achieve water treatment goals. Wastewater treatment process simulator is an essential tool for analyzing the performance of these complex...

Expanding the ability to anaerobically digest pulp and paper mill waste

2012/13-2014/15 • $489,400
In order for the Canadian pulp and paper industry to stay globally competitive and leave a smaller environmental footprint, its extensive water usage requires optimization. Anaerobic digestion is a cost-effective wastewater treatment option, decreasing the amount of residual sludge while...

Phylogenetic characterization of the nitrifying populations in municipal wastewaters and in biological treatment systems for modeling and bio-augmentation

2013/14-2014/15 • $76,640
New regulations tightening the discharge of ammonia from municipal wastewater treatment systems require a year-round good performance of the nitrification process (which removes ammonia by converting to nitrate). It is well know that this process has reduced efficiencies at lower temperatures...

Optimal Selection of Treatment Trains using CapdetWorkse

2012/13 • $25,000
Wastewater treatment in Canada is conducted in more than 3,700 facilities, and the degree of treatment varies considerably throughout the country, ranging from releases of untreated sewage to tertiary treatment. The recently proposed Wastewater System Effluent Regulations establish national...
