Hydraulic Conductivity of Paper Sludges Used for Landfill Covers

Implementation of Dissolved Air Flotation Technology

Hydraulic Properties of Surface Runoff on Ash-Mixed Concrete Pavement
The disposal of incinerated sludge ash from wastewater treatment plants is becoming an increasingly difficult problem in highly populated cities. The feasibility of reusing sludge ash...

Vadose-Zone Monitoring, Sanitary Treatment Plant Sludge-Drying Beds, Rocky Flats Plant, Golden, Colorado
The NPDES Federal Facilities Compliance Agreement (NPDES FFCA) of March 25, 1991 between the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), pursuant...

Results of Drip Tests of Sludge-Based and Actinide-Doped Glasses

A Study of Alkalinity Leaching and Residual Strength of Alkaline Stabilized Sludge
The addition of sufficient amounts of quicklime or other alkaline earth oxides to dewatered sludge raises both the pH and temperature of the sludge, resulting in microbial inactivation....

Beneficial Use of Ash: An Innovative Approach to Sludge Management
Disposal of ash resulting from the incineration of municipal sewage sludge has historically been a relatively easy, albeit, expensive requirement. The traditional method of disposal is...

Modifying One of the Nation's Most Successful Biosolids Lime Stabilization Operations
Since 1978, the Vallejo, California, Sanitation and Flood Control District has managed a tremendously successful biosolids program consisting of lime stabilization and agricultural land...

Application of Numerical Models in the Design of Clarifiers
In this study, a numerical model of a circular clarifier was applied to reveal the effects of the water depth on the hydraulic and removal efficiency. The velocity and solids concentration...

Optimizing Secondary Clarifier Performance: A Presentation Outline
Optimizing secondary clarifier performance is an activity that involves a consideration of the design, the maintenance, and the operation of the clarifier. Although the basic shape of...

Evaluating Activated Sludge Secondary Clarifier Performance: A Protocol
To establish a consistent methodology for evaluating secondary clarifier performance, the ASCE Clarifier Research Technical Committee prepared procedural guidelines in the form of a draft...

Sludge Hopper Design for Activated Sludge Clarifiers
Only in the past few years has any attention been allocated to the transport characteristics of sludge collectors. However, no attention has been given to a design rationale for the sludge...

Chelating Composite Membrane: Its Application in Selective Heavy-Metal Solid-Phase Separation
Selective removal of small amounts of heavy metals from the background of large amounts of innocuous sludge or slurry is a challenging separation problem. Conventional fixed-bed sorption...

Effect of Sludge Blend on Dewatering Characteristics
This study compares the performance of high solids centrifuges when processing anaerobically digested and undigested mixture of primary sludge and waste activated sludge, in order to evaluate...

Reducing Wastewater Sludge Pathogens Using Heat Treatment
The feasibility of using waste heat to reduce pathogen densities in wastewater sludge at a municipal wastewater treatment plant was investigated. Two modifications to an existing two stage...

Denitrification Inhibition by High Nitrate Wastes
The adaptation of activated sludge and inhibition of denitrification at high nitrate concentrations was studied using pH controlled bench-scale sequencing batch reactors (SBRs), operated...

Ozonization of Anaerobic Sludge Dewatering Centrate for Ammonia Removal
Semi-batch ozonation experiments were carried out on settled anaerobic sludge dewatering centrate. The observed rate of ammonia decay at pH ranging between 7.5 and 8.5 was much slower...
