To benefit the environment and society, EU legislation has introduced a ‘zero waste’ strategy, in which waste material should be converted to resources. Such legislation is supported by the solid waste hierarchy concept, which is a set of priorities in waste management. Under this concept, municipal solid waste plants (MSWPs) should be equipped with sorting and recycling facilities, composting/incineration units and landfill prisms...
Nitrification, denitrification, and dephosphatation capability of activated sludge during co-treatment of intermediate-age landfill leachates with municipal wastewater
This study focuses on the possible use and efficacy of the co-treatment of landfill leachate (intermediate-age) with municipal wastewater. The nitrification, denitrification, and dephosphatation capability of activated sludge acclimated with a mixture of raw municipal wastewater (RWW) with gradually increasing amounts of raw landfill leachate (RLL) (from 0.5 to 5% v/v) were tested. Biochemical tests were conducted simultaneously...
Investigation of MIEX® resin sedimentation in the aspect of particle sizes remaining in the supernatant
The aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the MIEX® resin sedimentation process, both new and repeatedly used in hybrid water treatment MIEX®DOC + microfiltration (MF) or ultrafiltration (UF) processes (repeatedly regenerated). The tests consisted of performing 1 h sedimentation of the suspension resin in nonflow conditions and analysis of supernatant water at different process durations. The suspension weight analysis...
