Two-step biological treatment of coke oven wastewater

Due to high concentrations of pollutants, some of them inhibitory or toxic, coke oven effluents belong to the most delicate industrial wastewaters. Application of conventional biological treatment technology requires low-loaded, i. e. large volume bioreactors.

Sensitve biological reactions such as nitrification are always endangered by shock loads of critical constituents such as cyanides. Separating the treatment process into a first biological step for carbonaceous BOD removal, hydrolysis and denitrification followed by a second step for nitrification of ammonia and combining the two steps via a nitrate recycle allows an overall reduced reactor volume design and protects slow growing sensitive autotrophic bacteria from inhibitory and toxic effects of respective pollutants. Full scale application of such a two-step process in a German coke oven effluent treatment plant is demonstrated. At the present the subject is in Easteurope very acute in connection with the modernisation of the Iron and Steel Industry.There are many inquires concerning the procedere while Linde-KCA-Dresden GmbH already started working on a few new projects in Easteurope.

Agricultural reuse of wastewater and sewage sludge

Continued population growth, contamination of both surface water and groundwater, uneven distribution of water resources and periodic droughts have lead to a search for new sources of water supply. One must discuss, not only in developing and threshold countries, how the objectives and requirements for wastewater and sludge disposal are in accord with a possible water reuse or whether they exclude each other. Early developments in the field of water reuse are synonymous with the historical practice of land application for the disposal of wastewater.

How UV can inactivate biologically active compounds
© Steinbeis-Transferzentrum Umwelttechnik (5/2003)
Biologically active compounds such as antibiotics and estrogens which escape untreated from pharmaceutical factories can cause great harm to the ecosystem. While there are many existing methods to inactivate such compounds, a combination of hydrogen peroxide and ultraviolett radiation can be quite effective, as this article explains.
