Aerobic Wastewater Treatment Packages: An Environmental and Energy-Saving Option

Abstract

The water management systems throughout the world employ and depend heavily on water supply management approach to cater the demand. This approach is unsustainable in the long run as water demand will eventually overtake water supply. It requires an effective approach like building water retaining structures; dams, canals etc., along with an effective management plan to sustain future needs. A more proper management of water is needed to sustain any adverse conflicts of water supply. The objective of this work is the development of an aeration wastewater treatment package which includes a well-equipped system that enables a sustainable management in the field of wastewater treatment, low energy consumption, and last but not least low investment and operation costs. The treatment package works by Extended Aeration Method. Performance of these packages is based on the continuous aeration including injection of oxygen gas or air into the aeration chamber via tube aeration diffuser through very small apertures for providing the required oxygen for aerobic bacteria. It is also designed to be airlift pump-free.
