“Advanced” doesn’t necessarily imply a particular type of technology so much as it refers to a degree of treatment. If the effluent leaving a system meets stringent criteria it’s said to have undergone advanced treatment.
Longer answer – Advanced treatment systems:
- Use new technologies to accelerate biological consumption of organic contaminants in wastewater.
- Remove toxic ammonia through nitrification.
- Mitigate eutrophication of waterways by reducing nitrogen and phosphorus through Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR).
- Sometimes introduce coagulants which settle nutrients and suspended solids through flocculation.
- Occasionally feature chlorinators or UV arrays to sanitize effluent.
- Rarely apply carbon filters to remove residual contaminants through adsorption.
Aqua Tech can design and build an advanced treatment system for nearly any situation.
