Wastewater treatment A sewage treatment plant in northern Portugal.
Wastewater treatment is the process that removes the majority of the contaminants from wastewater or sewage and produces both a liquid effluent suitable for disposal to the natural environment and a sludge. Biological processes can be employed in the treatment of wastewater and these processes may include, for example, aerated lagoonsactivated sludge or slow sand filters.
To be effective, sewage must be conveyed to a treatment plant by appropriate pipes and infrastructure and the process itself must be subject to regulation and controls. Some wastewaters require different and sometimes specialized treatment methods.
At the simplest level, treatment of sewage and most wastewaters is carried out through separation of solids from liquidsusually by sedimentation. By progressively converting dissolved material into solids, usually a biological floc, which is then settled out, an effluent stream of increasing purity is produced.
Industrial water treatment and Industrial wastewater treatment Two of the main processes of industrial water treatment are boiler water treatment and cooling water treatment.
A large amount of proper water treatment can lead to the reaction of solids and bacteria within pipe work and boiler housing. Steam boilers can suffer from scale or corrosion when left untreated. Scale deposits can lead to weak and dangerous machinery, while additional fuel is required to heat the same level of water because of the rise in thermal resistance.
Poor quality dirty water can become a breeding ground for bacteria such as Legionella causing a risk to public health.
With the proper treatment, a significant proportion of industrial on-site wastewater might be reusable. This can save money in three ways: Corrosion in low pressure boilers can be caused by dissolved oxygen, acidity and excessive alkalinity.
Water treatment therefore should remove the dissolved oxygen and maintain the boiler water with the appropriate pH and alkalinity levels. Without effective water treatment, a cooling water system can suffer from scale formation, corrosion and fouling and may become a breeding ground for harmful bacteria.
This reduces efficiency, shortens plant life and makes operations unreliable and unsafe. Such treatments can include water softening or ion exchange. Many proprietary systems also claim to remove residual disinfectants and heavy metal ions.
Desalination Saline water can be treated to yield fresh water. Two main processes are used, reverse osmosis or distillation. Portable water purification Living away from drinking water supplies often requires some form of portable water treatment process. These can vary in complexity from the simple addition of a disinfectant tablet in a hiker's water bottle through to complex multi-stage processes carried by boat or plane to disaster areas.
Ultra pure water production[ edit ] Some industries such as the production of silicon wafersspace technology and many high quality metallurgical process require ultrapure water. The production of such water typically involves many stages, and can include reverse osmosis, ion exchange and several distillation stages using solid tin apparatus.
History of water supply and sanitation Early water treatment methods still used included sand filtration and chlorination. The first documented use of sand filters to purify the water supply dates towhen the owner of a bleachery in Paisley, ScotlandJohn Gibb, installed an experimental filter, selling his unwanted surplus to the public.
Self-supply of water and sanitation Appropriate technology options in water treatment include both community-scale and household-scale point-of-use POU or self-supply designs.
This can ensure the efficiency of such programs after the departure of the research team, as monitoring is difficult because of the remoteness of many locations.
Energy consumption[ edit ] Water treatment plants can be significant consumers of energy. Much of the energy requirements are in pumping. Processes that avoid the need for pumping tend to have overall low energy demands. Those water treatment technologies that have very low energy requirements including trickling filtersslow sand filtersgravity aqueducts.
Notable examples[ edit ] A notable example that combines both wastewater treatment and drinking water treatment is NEWater in Singapore. More specifically, it is treated wastewater sewage that has been purified using dual-membrane via microfiltration and reverse osmosis and ultraviolet technologies, in addition to conventional water treatment processes.
The water is potable and is consumed by humans, but is mostly used by industries requiring high purity water.
