Implementation of a Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plant Utilizing an Advanced Bio-Filtration With Numerous Advantages Over Activated Sludge Systems
Abstract:In response to local regulations, the Ministry of Public Work in Kuwait City initiated a program to assess the problem of implementing a sewage treatment plant within 100 meters of a residential area at the Hutten Plant located in the South Sourra neighborhood of Kuwait City.
The problem was on two fronts. First off there must be minimal odor emissions. Hydrogen Sulphide must equal 0 mg/l. The second issue has to do with the handling and general nuisance of sludge within such a close proximity to a residential neighborhood.
The primary goal of this study was to determine how to minimize odor and at the same time virtually eliminate sludge.
In conclusion the Ministry decided on implementing their municipal wastewater treatment plant utilizing an advanced attached growth technology that not only was successful in fulfilling these requirements but also included numerous other advantages over Activated Sludge Systems.
