PHYTOREM® designs and builds custom eco-wastewater treatment plants for the private, public and industrial sectors. PHYTOREM®’s solution is established in France in various regions such as Bordelais, Roussillon, Provence-Alpes-Côtes-d’Azur, etc. It can be implemented in all climates and at all latitudes regardless of the wastewater volume to treat.
A City/County Water and Wastewater Study: integrating water, urban planning and stakeholders in Arizona (US)
The City of Tucson / Pima County “Water and Wastewater Infrastructure, Supply and Planning Study (WISPS)” is a participatory study of water and wastewater infrastructure, supply and planning issues in order to establish the basis for a sustainable water future for the city and the county. The study was a colaborative activity between the two institutions, who invited stakeholders to participate.
Methodological guidelines developed to identify the relevance of treated waste water reuse project by irrigation. A “go/no go approach” is proposed through different chronological steps :
- Identification and analysis of the drivers, the context, the motivations
- Analysis of the water resource and usage and balance;
- Elaboration and comparison of scenario using both a technical and economical approach
- Analysis of financial feasibility
This guideline is based on information collected from Mediterranean projects and countries and worldwide references synthesis on the subject.
The treatment of wastewater with a view to recover both the water & the nutrients has to be favored for a resource efficient strategy, in all countries including European countries. Braunschweig Water Services (BS) have never given up the idea of reusing wastewater in field irrigation, gradually improving the technical settings over a period of more than 50 years. To ensure the quality of the disposed water as well as the sludge, BS have enforced discharge control and requirements for pre-treatment of industrial wastewater: these measures results in the division by a factor of 6 of metallic compounds in sludge and water, thus in compliance with parametric values imposed for soil protection.
LEGISLATIVE AND FINANCIAL FRAMEWORK FOR DOMESTIC AND INDUSTRIAL SEWERAGE SYSTEMS IN VALENCIAN COMMUNITY (SPAIN)
Since 1993, the Valencian Regional Government enjoys a financing tool, which at that time was the first in Spain and inspired many other similar ways to finance sanitation water services in Spain. This Canon is really an environmental tax because it pursuits the improvement and the conservation status of the Environment of the Valencian Community. For spilling control, the Public Entity for Waste Water Sanitation of the Regional Government of Valencia designs spilling plans for those towns with an important industrial sector. Once the Plan is done and permanent and momentary sample taking apparatus are installed, the control is carried out by the City Council, reporting to the Public Entity.
The solution was implemented in the City of Gdansk (northern of Poland) located upon the Baltic Sea, Gdansk Bay. Nutrients can enter the aquatic environment from either natural or human-caused sources. It may not be possible to reduce eutrophication, caused by uncontrollable natural sources like atmosphere and surface runoff, to an acceptable level. Therefore, it becomes necessary to remove nutrients from more controllable human-caused sources, i.e., wastewater discharged to water bodies.
An environmentally and economically effective method of nitrogen and phosphorus removal from wastewater is the utilization of biological nutrient removal (BNR) processes which are effectively performed in activated sludge systems.
Using Treated Wastewater of Jericho Plant for Artificial Recharge of Alluvial Deposits Aquifer, Jericho-Palestine
The solution aim at improve the water quality and quantity of the Alluvial Deposits Aquifer in Jericho by adapting a Pilot project for artificial recharge by using the treated wastewater of Jericho Plant that will be constructed and operated in 2013.
The plan aims at developing several short, mid and long terms options and actions that are needed to enhance and promote water resources in Jordan Valley area: this was done by assessing available water resources connecting them with the population projection and expected expansion of irrigable areas , and anticipated development based on the governmental plan of reviving the Jordan Valley. The major actions and development options that are needed to alleviate water shortage problem in Jordan Valley Area would be defined and categorized.
Unique in Europe, MAGES (Modèle d’aide à la gestion des effluents du SIAAP – Support Model for wastewater management of Paris region) is a software designed to provide assistance in the dynamic management of urban effluents in the Greater Paris area (nearly 10 million inhabitants).
