Fouling is the main limitation to the application of membrane bioreactors (MBRs). Understanding the complexity of fouling has led to better decision making for design and operation of MBRs. However, studies have shown contradictory results of the impact of sludge characteristics on membrane filtration performance and fouling propensity. The...

Aniline, a toxic aromatic amine present in certain wastewaters from the petroleum-, pharmaceutical- , and textile industry is regarded recalcitrant under strict anaerobic conditions. This study assessed the feasibility of methanogenic aniline biodegradation under saline (8 gNa+/L) conditions (1) by performing biodegradability batch assays using...

Increase in sea level will lead to an increase in salinity in domestic wastewater systems. In order to anticipate its effects on biological wastewater treatment, the impact has to be assessed with lab-scale experiments. Aerobic granular sludge (AGS) is a successful technology for simultaneous removal of organic carbon (COD), nitrogen, and...

Water is one of the long-standing problems in Sint Maarten. Water supply is scarce while water demand is high. Water pollution and incomplete infrastructure also needs to be tackled. How can a cluster scale decentralized water management system solve water challenges in the hurricane-prone environment of Sint Maarten is the research question....

Full-scale aerobic granular sludge technology under the trade name Nereda® has been implemented for municipal, as well as industrial wastewater treatment. Owing to the operational reactor procedures, two types of waste aerobic granular sludge can be clearly distinguished: 1) aerobic granular sludge selection discharge (AGS-SD) and 2) aerobic...

Aerobic granular sludge (AGS) technology is an alternative to conventional activated sludge to reduce the process footprint and energy consumption. Strategies for the efficient management of its produced biomass, that is grown in a granular morphology as well, need further development. Anaerobic digestion (AD) is commonly applied in waste...

This paper guides decision making in more sustainable urban water management practices that feed into a circular economy by presenting a novel framework for conceptually designing and strategically planning wastewater treatment processes from a resource recovery perspective. Municipal wastewater cannot any longer be perceived as waste stream...

In this study the environmental impact of the anaerobic digestion (AD) of sewage sludge within an activated sludge wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) was investigated. Three alternative AD systems (mesophilic, thermophilic, and temperature-phased anaerobic digestion (TPAD)) were compared to determine which system may have the best...

Mixed-culture biotechnologies are widely used to capture nutrients from wastewater. Purple non-sulfur bacteria (PNSB), a guild of anoxygenic photomixotrophic organisms, rise interest for their ability to directly assimilate nutrients in the biomass. One challenge targets the aggregation and accumulation of PNSB biomass to separate it from the...

Biofilm and granular sludge processes depend on diffusion of substrates. Despite their importance for the kinetic description of biofilm reactors, biofilm diffusion coefficients reported in literature vary greatly. The aim of this simulation study was to determine to what extent the methods that are used to measure diffusion coefficients...

This work presents a joint experimental and simulation campaign aimed at characterizing two nanofiltration membranes (TS80 and NF270) in the presence of a multi-ionic water solution simulating the spent regenerant of cationic ion exchange resins employed for water softening. We identified the membrane parameters, which allowed for predicting...

“Upwards along the pipes” focuses on the Tamansari subdistrict in Bandung, Indonesia, in which the Cikapundung river is a central physical element, dividing the highly dense informal settlements in two. The project tries to tackle several ecological and spatial issues occuring within the site, including a large amount of (organic) waste being...

Certain industrial wastewaters have posed a big challenge to biological water treatment systems because of their high toxic organic compounds concentration (e.g. phenol) and high salinity. The maximum biomass specific phenol bioconversion rate (PhCR) of a mesophilic (35 °C) anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) under high sodium concentration ...

Besides wastewater and rainwater, the sewers in the Netherlands also transport a lot of water that is not supposed to be in the sewer. This water is called extraneous water and is the result of unwanted discharges in the sewer system. This could be groundwater infiltrating leaky sewer pipes, or pumped from construction sites directly into the...

Nitrogen (N) removal is one of the key tasks for every wastewater treatment plant under the growing pressure of environmental protection. Prevailing applied N treatment technologies are mostly energy-intensive. This dilemma triggers a rethinking of the way to approach N management. “N2kWh-From pollutant to power” is a project that aims at...

Municipal and industrial wastewater contains a significant amount of dissolved nitrogen. This is the results of the organic protein degradation and of the large employment of nitrogen (<i>N</i>), usually in the form of ammonia (<i>NH</i><sub>3</sub>), in the industry. Currently, nitrogen is removed in wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) by means...

Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is used worldwide for treating organic waste and wastewater. Biogas produced can be converted using conventional energy conversion devices to provide energy efficient, integrated waste solutions. Typically, the electrical conversion-efficiency of these devices is 30–40% and is lowered due to biogas utilization instead...

Powdered activated carbon (PAC) for organic micro-pollutant (OMP) removal can be applied effectively on wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluents by using re-circulation schemes, accumulating the PAC in the system. This technique is complex because several factors are unknown: (i) the PAC concentration in the system, (ii) specific and...

The strong greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N<sub>2</sub>O) can be emitted from wastewater treatment systems as a byproduct of ammonium oxidation and as the last intermediate in the stepwise reduction of nitrate to N<sub>2</sub> by denitrifying organisms. A potential strategy to reduce N<sub>2</sub>O emissions would be to enhance the activity of...

Due to an increased food production the demand for nitrogen and phosphorus as fertilizers grows. Nitrogen based fertilizers are produced with the Haber-Bosch process through industrial fixation of N2 into ammonia. Through wastewater treatment the nitrogen is finally released back to the atmosphere as N2 gas. This nitrogen cycle is characterized...
