Solids Reduction Process

The solids reduction process significantly reduces the biological solids produced by activated sludge wastewater treatment systems, as well as the costs associated with sludge wasting and removal.

With the solids reduction system, the biological oxidation of biological solids is accomplished through a special designed process. This patented process, which has been proven in many industrial and municipal facilities of various sizes, can be used for new plant designs or retrofitted into existing sites. The resulting cost reductions are immediate and impressive for nearly every biological wastewater facility.

Major Savings in Operation

  • Significant reduction in quantity of solids for disposal
  • Reduces sludge hauling costs
  • Trash, grit and inerts are removed on a regular basis
  • Routine solids handling and disposal reduced
  • Power costs of biosolids handling are greatly reduced
  • Reduces polymer costs of sludge dewatering
  • Routine operation of dewatering equipment is reduced
  • Redirects labor from solids handling to other critical plant tasks

Major Savings on Equipment

  • Aerobic stabilization or anaerobic digestion can be eliminated or reduced in size
  • Unit operations can be eliminated from new plants
  • Eliminate or reduce the need for solids handling upgrade for existing facilities
