  • 1. Meteor™-IFAS BIOLOGICAL PURIFICATION OF WASTEWATER BY COMBINED CULTURES URBAN WASTEWATERP-PPT-ER-005-EN-1107 REMOVE CARBON AND NITROGEN WASTEWATER USING A VERY COMPACT SOLUTION
  • 2. Urban CONTENTSWastewater Meteor™ Meteor™ Range IFAS The Meteor™-IFAS Model Operating Principle Components Parts of Meteor™-IFAS Meteor™-IFAS in the Treatment Lines The Advantages of Meteor™-IFAS Some References Case Study: Groton, Connecticut, USA 2
  • 3. UrbanWastewater Meteor™ RANGE Meteor™ As part of biological treatment processes, Meteor™ is designed IFAS for purifying wastewater using mixed cultures. Meteor™ RANGE Specific features Activated sludge Models Preferential Positioning Advantages of the process For new plants concentration (biological tank) Biofilm Culture • Extremely compact MBBR (no AS) NTK 400 mg/L • Separation (CMDF – DAF) • Major loading fluctuations • Mixed culture – Less medium than With activated for MBBR IFAS sludge recirculation NGL 2 g/L • Rehabilitation – enhances treatment quality 3
  • 4. UrbanWastewater THE Meteor™-IFAS MODEL Meteor™ INNOVATION IFAS An intermediary (combined cultures) solution combining the advantages of fixed-film culture (like biofiltration) and suspended growth technology (like activated sludge). • Meteor™-IFAS is designed for treating carbon and nitrogen in wastewater. • It is the model based on a biological process with fixed culture on mobile carriers (IFAS = Integrated Fixed Film Activated Sludge). • It fits any size of facilities. • It can be used for the treatment or raw water from urban areas and the pretreatment of industrial water . 4
  • 5. Urban OPERATING PRINCIPLEWastewater Meteor™ IFAS • Treatment of carbon is made through suspended growth (actviated sludge) while the nitrogen treatment is made through attached growth: two different types of biomass (flocculated biomass and attached biomass) coexist within the same reactor. 5
  • 6. COMPONENT PARTS–UrbanWastewater CARRIERS Meteor™ IFAS 3 different carriers for an adaptation to each case. NAME Meteor 660 Meteor 515 Meteor 450 6
  • 7. COMPONENTS PARTS –UrbanWastewater RETAINING SCREEN Meteor™ An environmental IFAS protection 2 versions: When Meteor™-IFAS is before a When 2 denitrification and nitrification clarifier: are adjacent:• Good mix and good mobility of carriers around the screens. 7
  • 8. COMPONENTS PARTS–UrbanWastewater AERATION Meteor™ IFAS 2 types of aeration to be adapted to each situation Small bubbles Medium bubbles 8
  • 9. UrbanWastewater Meteor™-IFAS IN THE TREATMENT LINES Meteor™ The configurations are the same as for activated sludge with IFAS the exception of sequenced channel that is not compatible with the presence of carriers. The most widely found layouts are shown below: Carbone only No economic value compared with activated sludge. Nitrification / Denitrification 9
  • 10. UrbanWastewater ADVANTAGES OF Meteor™-IFAS Meteor™ • Compact: IFAS Volume needs of the structures are considerably reduced compared to conventional activated sludge. • Flexibility: This process supports strong load variations particularly in cold zones (ex.: mountainous zones) • Environment: An effluent quality that conforms to the strictest regulations on discharge while controlling costs. • Easy to operate: – No load loss or washing, – A high level of automation which gives maximum reliability to the system, – Ease of integration within existing stations, – Ideal of upgrades: raise of the quality level of discharge, as well as the load to be treated. 10
