Hybrid Granular SBR for Wastewater Treatment (GST)

Hybrid Granular SBR for Wastewater Treatment (GST)

Overview

The hybrid Granular SBR Treatment (GST) is a compact biological treatment method for effective removal of contaminants from domestic and industrial wastewaters. It makes use of the natural microbes present in the wastewater for removing contaminants. The microbial growth is predominantly in bio-beads comprising of biomass particles (biofilms and granules). Bio-beads (i) achieve high biomass levels, (ii) simplify separation of biomass from treated wastewater and (iii) decrease the load of pollutants to acceptable levels. The bio-beads produced during wastewater treatment are a source of C, N and P and a fertilizer-supplement in organic farming. The value of the resources recovered from wastewater treatment plants i.e. treated wastewater and fertilizer-supplement, can partly recover the OPEX. The GST uses the unique features of sequencing batch reactor (SBR) and bio-beads for treating wastewater in a single tank system without secondary clarifiers. It enables building compact effluent and sewage treatment plants with smaller land footprint and lower costs as compared to other methods. This process does not involve chemical addition for removing nutrients & provides odour free sewage treatment plants.

 ADVANTAGES

  • Compact layout with smaller land footprint and lower costs as compared to other methods.

  • Uses bio-beads for effective removal of organic carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and other contaminants from wastewater.

  • Bio-beads allows effective biomass retention and high biomass levels in SBR tanks.

  • No secondary clarifier tanks and lesser mechanical equipment (i.e. no pumps for sludge recycle and liquid recirculation, no moving decanters).

  • Robust treatment and effective nutrient (N and P) removal.

  • Tolerates fluctuating loads, process and environmental perturbations.

  • No chemical addition for nutrient removal & odour free sewage treatment plants.

  • One time addition of small quantity of support media.

 APPLICATIONS

  • Suitable for treating municipal and industrial wastewaters.

  • Useful for compact new wastewater treatment plants.

  • Useful in the up-gradation of existing plants for increasing treatment capacity/performance.

  • Suitable for centralized and decentralized wastewater treatment.

  • Recovers treated wastewater for water reuse and biomass as fertilizer supplement for organic farming.

The value of the resources recovered from wastewater treatment plants i.e. treated wastewater and fertilizer-supplement, can partly recover the OPEX involved in running the plant.

ADVANTAGES

  • GST uses the unique features of sequencing batch reactor (SBR) and bio-beads for treating wastewater in a single tank system.
  • GST is realized using SBRs, secondary settlers are not needed. Thus, plants require lower land footprint, costs and energy as compared to activated sludge systems.
  • Lesser mechanical equipment compared to other methods.
  • Bio-beads allow effective biomass retention and high biomass levels which lowers plant footprint and offers superior treatment.
  • Effective contaminant and nutrient removal from wastewater.
  • Bio-beads tolerate fluctuating loads, process and environmental perturbations.
  • No chemical addition for contaminant removal and odour free sewage treatment plants.
  • One time addition of small quantity of support media.

APPLICATIONS

  • Suitable for treating municipal and industrial wastewaters
  • Useful for compact new wastewater treatment plants & upgradation of existing plants
  • Suitable for both centralized and decentralized wastewater treatment
  • Recovers treated wastewater for reuse applications
  • Produces nutrient rich biomass as fertilizer supplement for organic farming

PROCESS DESCRIPTION

Process conditions are conducive for selecting and enriching functional, aggregating and slow-growing microbes in bio-beads. Bio-beads are formed from natural microbes present in the wastewater. It is the most natural way of forming bio-beads and treating wastewater. Each batch of treatment comprises of time-gated steps such as filling, mixing, settle and decant phases. Reaction phase is distributed amongst anaerobic and aerobic steps. The length of each batch cycle and individual phases depends on type of wastewater, its characteristics and effluent quality requirements. The GST uses familiar sequencing batch reactor (SBR) technology for treating wastewater. SBR is a proven technology for small, medium and large scale wastewater treatment plants. Multiple SBR tanks facilitate to achieve continuity in large volume wastewater treatment plants.

Sewage Treatment using pilot-scale GST:-

Parameters Influent Effluent
COD (mg/l) 200 - 600 <10
BOD5 (mg/l) 250 <10
TN (mg/l) 15 - 30 <5
TP (mg/l) 3 – 6 <2
TSS (mg/l) Up to 170 <30

RAW MATERIALS

  • The raw materials required for manufacturing the plant are easily available in local market.

INFRASTRUCTURE

  • Construction of plant includes civil construction, piping, equipment procurement, automation and commissioning.

MANPOWER

  • One skilled person per shift (8h) for operating the plant
