As world populations require both more clean water and better ways to dispose of wastewater, the demand for water reclamation will increase. Reclaimed water, sometimes called recycled water, is wastewater that has been treated to remove solids and certain impurities, and then reused for a variety of applications including landscaping, irrigation, and recharging groundwater aquifers. Treating water for reuse is an important part of water conservation efforts and in some regions of the world makes great economic sense.
The Headworks MBBR/IFAS biological system offers a novel and dependable solution for wastewater treatment, recovery, and reuse when non potable water quality is required, e.g. , for field irrigation, industrial use, wash water, flush water, etc. IFAS/MBBR technology offers flexible solutions to a multitude of biological process upgrade applications such as nitrogen and phosphorus removal, increases in treatment capacity, and water reuse.
Upgrading to an MBBR or IFAS process can be completed in a cost-effective and timely manner without major civil engineering requirements. PLC-based control systems optimize IFAS/MBBR process performance by minimizing energy and chemical cost. Headworks executed projects where the effluent reached potable water standards for reuse.
