  1. 1. Microsieving in municipal wastewater treatment : Chemically enhanced primary and tertiary treatment

    Author : Janne Väänänen; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : coagulation; wastewater treatment; flocculation; microsieving; control; primary treatment; tertiary treatment; coagulation; control; flocculation; microsieving; municipal wastewater treatment; primary treatment; tertiary treatment;

    Abstract : Municipal wastewater treatment plants are constantly forced to make improvements. The main objectives are to reduce energy consumption, to increase the treatment capacity and to improve the effluent water quality. Microsieves in combination with chemical pretreatment can potentially fulfil these objectives. READ MORE

  2. 2. Municipal wastewater treatment by microsieving, microfiltration and forward osmosis : Concepts and potentials

    Author : TOBIAS HEY; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : Direct membrane filtration; electricity; energy; forward osmosis; microfiltration; microsieving; municipal wastewater treatment; treatment concept; Direct membrane filtration; Electricity; Energy; Forward osmosis; Microfiltration; Microsieving; Municipal wastewater treatment; Treatment concept;

    Abstract : Conventional wastewater treatment plants are designed for treating manmade wastewater (e.g., from households and industries) and to protect the environment (e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards application of activated carbon treatment for pharmaceutical removal in municipal wastewater

    Author : Victor Kårelid; Gen Larsson; Gunno Renman; Ola Svahn; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; advanced wastewater treatment; granular activated carbon; powdered activated carbon; municipal wastewater treatment; pharmaceutical removal; Bioteknologi; Biotechnology;

    Abstract : Many pharmaceuticals are found in municipal wastewater effluents due to their persistence in the human body as well as in conventional wastewater treatment processes. This discharge to the environment can lead to adverse effects in aquatic species, such as feminization of male fish. READ MORE

  4. 4. Microbiological analysis of municipal wastewater treating photobioreactors

    Author : Ivo Krustok; Monica Odlare; Emma Nehrenheim; Jaak Truu; Raul Muñoz; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; photobioreactors; wastewater treatment; microalgae; microbiology; Energy- and Environmental Engineering; energi- och miljöteknik;

    Abstract : Microalgae reactors, commonly known as photobioreactors, have become increasingly popular as an alternative for wastewater treatment. These systems reduce pollutants and remove nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorous compounds from wastewater utilizing microalgae and bacteria. READ MORE

  5. 5. Physicochemical Treatment of Municipal Wastewater : From Direct Membrane Filtration to Adsorption of Organic Micropollutants

    Author : Simon Gidstedt; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Direkt membranfiltrering; Granulärt aktivt kol; Avloppsvatten; Kemisk förbehandling; Mikrosilning; Direct membrane filtration; Granular activated carbon; Wastewater; Chemically enhanced primary treatment; Microsieving;

    Abstract : Pharmaceutical residues and other organic micropollutants are transported via municipal wastewater to wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). However, current treatment processes are not designed to remove organic micropollutants, and several such compounds have been found in recipients, where they can have negative effects on aquatic organisms.
