BIO-FILTERS VS. BIO-SCRUBBERS - HEAD TO HEAD COMPETITION
Abstract:Metro Water Services wishes to install biological odor control systems to control odors from the Central and Dry Creek wastewater treatment plants (WWTP). In order to obtain the system that provided the best value to Metro Water Services, an evaluated bid that compared the net present value of each alternative was used to determine which system to install. The primary goal was to determine if there was a substantial difference in operating costs between bio-scrubbers or bio-filters for each of the two treatment plants. The comparison includes the equipment cost, construction cost, electrical costs and chemical costs of each alternative. This paper describes in detail the bid format, performance requirements, evaluation criteria and the outcome of the evaluation for the biological odor control systems.
