Document Description
The purpose of this Agreement is to fund technology deployment of raw wastewater filtration as a technically viable and commercially attractive technology for achieving significant electrical energy savings at wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Conventional wastewater treatment technology includes a primary clarification step before the aerated activated sludge treatment step to reduce the organic amount entering the aerated activated sludge basins. The organic load reduction achieved by the primary clarification step is typically between 20 and 30 percent. Achieving a higher degree removal of organic amount before the aerated activated sludge process provides a breakthrough opportunity to significantly reduce the electrical power demand at WWTPs.
