The first full-scale CoMag treatment system, installed at the Town of Concord, Massachusetts wastewater treatment plant, has demonstrated its ability to consistently meet limits of 0.1 and 0.05 mg/l total phosphorus since startup in November 2007. It was constructed as part of a larger plant upgrade, after an 18-month pilot trial of the process and an evaluation of alternatives. This paper describes the CoMag process, reviews scale-up issues, and presents the first six months of operational data, including operating costs.
