Description:The sewage recycling system (SRS) - breaking new ground in wastewater treatment - “Presenting a sustainable, efficient and environmentally-friendly approach to wastewater treatment.” Presenter: Jean Navert, B.Sc., BioForm Sewage Mining (A Division of Canadian Sewage Mining Corporation). 1) Van A. Ridout, P. Eng., Founder/CEO, Western Water Resources (WWR) Inc., Calgary, Alberta 2) Ali Roshanfekr, Ph.D., P. Eng., Director of Water Resources Engineering, Western Water Resources (WWR) Inc., Calgary, Alberta Wastewater treatment normally includes a combination of physical, chemical, and biological processes to remove contaminants. A new dimension to this is “Sewage Mining”. The Applied CleanTech Sewage Recycling System (SRS), recently introduced into Canada by BioForm Sewage Mining from Calgary Alberta, mines and extracts valuable resources from municipal sewage, recycling them into a high-quality, pasteurized cellulose-based product called RecylloseTM. It is a 100% renewable material, a profitable new commodity created from an endless untapped resource, which can be used as an additive in a broad range of industries, helping to offset the rapid depletion of natural cellulose resources. The SRS technology represents a major breakthrough toward solving an enormous environmental challenge…the reduction of harmful sludge and its associated high treatment and disposal costs. The innovative Sewage Recycling System is a compact, modular, “plug-and-play” recycling processor that could be easily adapted to virtually any wastewater treatment systems. It automatically and continuously extracts suspended biosolids contained in the wastewater stream before they become sludge. It then transforms them into Recyllose™. This is accomplished without restricting the flow to the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), which has 50% fewer solids to deal with. By preventing sludge production rather than treating it, the unique SRS technology substantially reduces the operating cost of the WWTP and increases the capacity (throughput) of the WWTP while adding to the global effort towards the reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This will also hopefully contribute to help the industry transform its perception of how it currently thinks about municipal wastewater treatment, to a thinking that embraces waste as a valuable resource rich in beneficial materials that can be used to serve humanity rather than hinder it.
