Biogas measurement at the surface

Brazil, for being a tropical country uses large-scale anaerobic ponds without coverage to capture generated methane. It is known, that a simple pond can generate biogas to replace a few tons of wood in boilers and/or recover energy, for example.

Genética Environmental Technologies has developed a compression camera float to analyze the amount of methane generated in a pond and, hence, the result is the reuse this gas.

Algae microscopy

Algae are present at the discharge of the effluents using polishing ponds (in excess can cause eutrophication of the receiving body) and water storage ponds for supply (cause odor and taste in water). Some may be very dangerous, since they have the capacity to synthesize bioactive compounds, called cianotoxins that promote toxigenic effect to the aquatic biota system.

Due to the environmental importance of the appearance of algae phenomenon in ponds and tanks, Genética Environmental Technologies offers a quick and conclusive microscopic analysis for taking action.

Below a brief example of this differential we offer:

Qualitative and quantitative analysis


Algae Total density
Microcystis sp.  3,0 x 10² (++)
Phacus sp. 2,0 x 10³ (+++)
TOTAL: 2,3 x 10³

The legislation doesn't set maximum values ​​of algae density standards of effluent discharges. Based on studies conducted by the Genética Environmental Technologies, the maximum concentration of algae value for a good stabilization of the effluent without increasing DBO (algal mass) ranging from 1.0 x 104 to 5.0 x 104 cells/ml.

Parameter Sample analyzed Conama nº430/2011
True color (mg/Pt.L) 70 --
Apparent color (mg/Pt.L) 199 --
Turbidity (NTU) 255,9 --
Chlorophyll a (µg/L) Not analyzed --
pH 8,12 5,0 a 9,0

Physico-chemical quality of the sample analyzed compared to the standards established by the National Council of the Environment (CONAMA), nº 430 of May 13, 2011.

Ecological consequence:

  • Increased particulate organic matter (BOD);
  • Increase of organic substances which can give taste and odor to water;
  • Excessive pH increase;
  • Excessive sedimented algae causes anaerobiose releasing hydrogen sulfide (toxicity), ammonia, iron, manganese, phosphorus, etc. Can also occur in the anaerobic source where the effluent is discharged causing death of fish.

Sieves efficiency analysis

In industrial screening, the solids contained in the effluent from the primary system are placed on this surface called sieve, which may be static or rotating.

The solids that are not retained in the sieves become serious problems for equipment and cause accumulations in ponds and tanks.

See the importance of this study for taking actions:

Example of granulometry:

Example of efficiency, static sieve:

In the case above the static sieve is retaining fibers greater than 1 mm of opening and much of other particle sizes, resulting in a 19% particle size retention, in other words, still 81% of the solids pass to the secondary effluent treatment system.

Efficiency of decanters and tridecanters analysis

The major challenges in sludge dewatering operation are:

  • Reduction of chemical and organic load returning to the system;
  • Reduction of chemical consumption in the process;
  • Maximum efficiency of the equipment to ensure lower volume of sludge for disposal and treatment.

For these and other reasons, our engineering staff and laboratories have created more this important evaluation tool and diagnosis of centrifuges, tridecanters and other forms of sludge dehydration.

OPERATION PRINCIPLE:

The electric current applied to electrodes inside an electrolytic chamber causes the colloidal impurities to destabilize, resulting in agglomeration, flotation and subsequent removal. The dissolved impurities that contribute COD / BOD are also oxidized due to the oxidizing agents released by the reaction, which modifies them to a state which is less colloidal and less emulsified (or soluble). The contaminants are then precipitated and can be easily removed by secondary separation techniques.

HIGH TECHNOLOGY IN EFFLUENT TREATMENT:

• High removal of COD / BOD;
• Lower generation of sludge;
• Effluent without chemical residual;
• Elimination of multiple contaminants;
• Detoxification and improvement of biodegradability;
• Eliminates heavy metals;
• Eliminates coliforms, viruses and microorganisms in general;
• Removal of color and odor;
• Removal of oils and greases;
• Removal of suspended solids;
• It does not generate concentrated water discharge with pollutants such as Reverse Osmosis;
• Rust resistant organic compounds.

TIP TECHNOLOGY

Airmaster Aerators incorporates "infusion aeration technology" - an innovation in wastewater treatment - making these aerators the most advanced and efficient available in the world today.

US PATENT No. 6,325,842

Manufacturer: Airmaster US (www.airmasteraerator.com)
Representative for Latin America: Genética Group

OPERATION PRINCIPLE:

The effluent is sucked into the Airmaster by an impeller and then pressed into the aerator discharge system. A turbo fan forces air into this discharge system through an infusion tube and two spirals move the wastewater around this tube.
When the oxygen tubes are connected to the discharge manifold, it creates a negative pressure zone, at which point the aerator is able to disturb the molecular structure of the effluents and infuse the air into the wastewater.
Then these effluents that received the oxygen, are discharged on the right and left side of the aerator, mixing from the top of the pond to the bottom.
The agitation generated has a high aeration capacity without increasing the effluent temperature, and the turbo fan incorporated into the effluent discharge guarantees the maximum available oxygen transfer.

HIGH TECHNOLOGY IN EFFLUENT TREATMENT:

• 2 times more efficient than diffusion of air;
• 3 times more efficient than mechanical aeration;
• Effective in the removal of nitrogen;
• Effective in reducing sludge;
• Effective in reducing COD and BOD;
• Effective in algae control;
• Effective odor reduction;
• Principle of stripping and turbo transfer of oxygen to the nitrifying bacteria.

BOVINE REFRIGERATOR (CASE):

  • Application of the Airmaster Turbo Aerator 15 HP equipment;
  • Flow rate: 400 m³ / day;
  • Initial Nitrogen: 174 mg / L;
  • Final Nitrogen: 17 mg / L;
  • Efficiency: 1,96 kgO2 /kg converted nitrogen.

Normal nitrification process would require 4.74 kgO2 / kg converted nitrogen.
