Innovative technologies & processes enabling energy neutral wastewater treatment

2017/18-2019/20 • $66,000 • PI
Over the years, wastewater treatment objectives have become more stringent. These objectives demand more energy and higher wastewater treatment operating costs. These increasing costs coupled with emerging sustainability requirements are propelling researchers, industry, and utilities to come up...

Characterizing BioCord fixed film technology for total nitrogen removal

2019/20 • $62,500 • PI
Nitrogen is one of the primary nutrients if in excessive amount pollute lakes, drinking water wells, streams, and wetlands. Most nutrients come from human activities and through municipal and home sewage systems. Wastewater treatment plants are required to remove nutrients such as nitrogen...

Recirculating Hydrolyzed Biosolids to Anaerobic Digestion Process: Impact on Nutrients and Recalcitrant Organics

2019/20 • $25,000 • PI
In Canada, municipal wastewater treatment plants generate an estimated 780,000 dry tonnes of biosolids per year, of which about 50% of the biosolids are land applied. Biosolids are nutrient rich organic material resulting from wastewater treatment that has been sufficiently processed to be...

An evaluation of membrane aerated biofilm reactor technology in anabling shortcut nitrogen removal

2017/18-2018/19 • $127,967 • PI
Carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus are the primary stressors that pollute lakes, drinking water wells, streams and wetlands. Most stressors come from human activities and through municipal and home sewage systems. Thus, wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are required to remove carbon and nutrients...
