Comparing 3 Vapor-Phase Wastewater Treatment Technologies

Biofiltration, Solid Scavengers, and Carbon Adsorption 

In Part 1 of our wastewater treatment technology series, we examined the role of wet scrubber systems in the mitigation of hazardous fumes associated with hydrogen sulfide gas (H2S). In this installment, we turn our attention to three additional vapor-phase wastewater treatment technologies. 

In addition to wet-air-scrubbing, wastewater treatment plants today have access to a variety of methods for treating ventilation-air and/or biogas. These include biofiltration, solid scavengers and carbon adsorption.

These systems can be deployed in high odor locations like the headworks, wet wells and bio solids areas, but each has its own set of requirements and considerations that must be factored.

Identifying Areas For Wastewater Odor Control

3 Areas Where Odor Control Vent Pipe Can Improve Your Services

Wastewater treatment plants around the world use various processes to treat wastewater from homes and businesses.

In multiple stages of the treatment process, odor control has become an increasingly pertinent issue for owners, architects, engineers and design-build companies. As population densities increase and residential zones expand around wastewater treatment facilities, public tolerance for foul odor seems to decrease proportionately.

This article targets three stages of the wastewater treatment process where PSP® odor control vent pipe can be applied to help alleviate public outcry and improve general air-quality.

Revolutionary Wastewater Treatment Technologies Set New Standards

Posted by Mike Baranski on May 4, 2017 2:28:16 PM

Advanced Wastewater Treatment Technologies Are Drawing Public Interest

Economic and population growth in the Seattle, Washington area has driven the need to increase regional wastewater treatment capacity.

In the summer of 2000, King County began searching for locations for additional treatment facilities. Over the course of a 3-year public process between 2000 and 2003, more than 65 potential locations were evaluated. 

Because extensive stakeholder consultation and environmental reviews were a part of the siting process, odor control from the proposed facility became an important factor in its design. The resulting $1.86B, 36 million gallon per day regional system, known as Brightwater, now serves much of North King County and its wastewater treatment technologies have set far-reaching standards.
