Also one more project to add that backs up modeling capabilities. Confidential Client, Canada (no pictures can just use generic wastewater picture)
CPES evaluated the capacity of a membrane biological reactor (MBR) process from a municipal biological treatment facility to accept a new industrial wastewater source. The WRRF was using a biological nitrogen removal (BNR) process for nitrogen and phosphorus removal. Biowin process modeling was used to determine the impact of the industrial wastewater on the performance and capacity of the municipal MBR system. Initially, CPES set up a base model of the MBR system, calibrated it against design performance then validated the model with results from other operating scenarios. The model was then used to evaluate different process scenarios with the combined municipal and industrial influents. Ten scenarios consisting of changing water temperature, anoxic return location, and MBR return location all showed satisfactory performance in meeting discharge limitations and water reclamation requirements. The most favorable performance was found to be a process with anoxic recycle directed to the RAS denitrification tank and MBR recycle directed to the lead aerobic tank.”
“Sara helped design and manage the construction for a customized solution at our facility utilizing local resources and contractors. The system balanced the variability of downstream wastewater characteristics from brewing, distilling and restaurant operations to meet the needs of the regulatory agencies for on-site treatment and discharge. Sara ensured an open dialog to create a good working relationship with our team, the construction teams and the regulatory agencies to limit surprises.”
