Optimizing Production Of Methane From Biosolids

For years, restaurant wastewater has caused problems with sewage systems because of the accumulation of fat, oil and grease (FOG) that can clog pipes. These “fatbergs” can damage water sewage networks resulting in increased costs because of the need for declogging and repair operations. A group of researchers from North Carolina State University are focusing…

De-Clogging Sludge Debris in Wastewater Plants

One of the main fixtures of any water treatment facility are progressive cavity (PC) pumps or screw pumps. These are important for propelling sewage sludge from the source and transporting it to the plant for treatment. It is useful for transporting viscous and abrasive fluids, making it ideal for thickened liquids like waste activated sludge….
