REDUCING ENERGY COSTS UTILIZING A MIXAIR® CONCEPT – SEDALIA, MO
Abstract:The Sedalia Wastewater Treatment Plant, located in Sedalia, Missouri utilizes a MixAir treatment, designed by Aqua-Aerobic Systems, Inc., to process their wastewater. The Mixair technology was chosen due to its ability to efficiently treat wastewater at design values of BOD and TSS, with the added ability to reduce electrical consumption during periods when the system is underloaded organically, without experiencing solids deposition. During operation of the plant, Sedalia operators have seen the low effluent BOD and TSS values they expected, and are able to save thousands of dollars per year in electrical consumption due to benefits derived from this flexible system design.
