Using image processing for determination of settled sludge volume
(IWA Publishing, 2018-07-12)
Determination of the sludge volume index is key to describing the settling characteristics of sludge in the aeration process of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). The two core components of this calculation are the settled ...
A novel image processing-based system for turbidity measurement in domestic and industrial wastewater
(IWA Publishing, 2018-01-19)
Wastewater treatment facilities are continually challenged to meet both environmental regulations and reduce running costs (particularly energy and staffing costs). Improving the efficiency of operational monitoring at ...
Inactivation efficiency of Bacillus endospores via modified flow-through PUV treatment with comparison to conventional LPUV treatment
Water is a fragile resource, consequently there is a pressing need to develop sustainable environmental-friendly disinfection technologies. This constitutes the first study to compare efficacy of continuous low-pressure ...
Microbiological characterisation and impact of suspended solids on pathogen removal from wastewaters in dairy processing factories
(Cambridge University Press, 2018-08-29)
In this Research Communication we investigate the microbiological profile of 12 dairy wastewater streams from three contrasting Irish dairy processing factories to determine whether faecal indicators/pathogens were present ...
Detecting the end of nitrification in small and decentralized wastewater treatment systems using low-resource real-time control methods
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2018-06-12)
There is increasing demand on operators of small-scale wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) to improve biological nutrient removal and energy efficiency while being subject to unique challenges, including reduced resources. ...
End use level water and energy interactions: A large non-residential building case study
Within the European Union, buildings account for around 40% of the energy use and 36% of CO2 emissions, thus representing a significant challenge in the context of recent EU directives that require all new buildings to be ...
