The process generation of WWTP models for optimization of activated sludge systems
The objective of water and wastewater utilities, which are responsible for optimization of wastewater treatment plant operation, is threefold: environmental protection, saving money, and mitigation of pollutant emissions, both to water and air. The performed study aimed to assess the process generation of WWTP models that improve activated sludge systems operation, by means of new developed Mantis2 model. This model accounts for the most prevalent biological and chemical processes occurring in wastewater treatment plants. It integrates the nitrogen, phosphorus, and carbon removal, as well as anaerobic digestion. Mantis2 is based, among others, on ASM2d and UCTADM1 models. In order to conduct evaluation, a WWTP layout was prepared by means of GPS-x software and used in dynamic simulation. The conducted simulations show that optimization of wastewater treatment plant operation can be achieved by changes in operating parameters. It was also demonstrated that energy savings can be obtained in various facilities with AS aeration systems.
