Civil wastewater treatment plants: processes and treatments

Let us first take a brief look at the different processes and treatments involved in each civil sewage treatment plant.

  1. Primary (mechanical) treatment. In this first stage, wastewater goes through sedimentation or settling to remove the heavier suspended solids. It is therefore a “roughing” stage.
  2. Secondary (biological) treatment. Special technologies purify the effluent of most of its organic components, taking advantage of biodegradation operated by aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. Some examples of technologies: activated sludge, mobile biological beds, biological oxidation. The product of this stage is sludge, which is more easily separated from water.
  3. Tertiary treatment. Further treatment to remove specific contaminants in a “finishing” stage. Cloth filtration, sand filtration, reverse osmosis, and UV radiation belong to this category.

Every civil wastewater treatment plant must include all these steps to remove contaminants: suspended solids of different sizes and types, phosphorus, nitrogen, oils and fats, BOD and COD.

Sewage treatment plants: MITA's advice to civil professionals

Contractors and engineering firms face a number of challenges when managing the design and supply of municipal water treatment systems: knowledge of national and transnational regulations, managing development and installation costs, and selecting solutions that are simple to manage. This, of course, in addition to the proper assessment of effluent quantity and quality parameters.

Water treatment technology providers are happy to relieve these professionals of responsibilities on individual sections of the project: the proposed and designed solutions must be reliable and easy to manage. Not to mention a reasonable total product life cycle cost (CAPEX and OPEX).

These are some of the technologies that, in MITA’s experience, best meet these needs of contractors and engineering firms on individual treatment stages:

  • Biorulli® oxidation systems (secondary treatment). Biological treatment carried out by aerobic bacteria, which grow on the plastic biodiscs through the steps of effluent immersion and emersion and oxygenation, and degrade the organic matter in the effluent. A system as simple and convenient as it is efficient.
  • Free-fiber cloth filters (tertiary treatment). Ideal solution for removal of suspended solids with outputs down to a few milligrams per liter. Cloth fibers capture suspended particles in larger quantities than a surface-only filtration. The energy used is minimal and is limited to the backwashing phase of the cloths.
  • Biocombi compact systems. The synthesis of the previous two systems, in a small tank. Reduced footprint, efficiency, minimal maintenance.
