Biological Phosphorus Removal - Clean Water Services (Oregon, USA)
The biological phosphorus removal process is notoriously unstable, requiring experienced operators and analysts to successfully manage. A tool that can forecast instability, while providing recommendations for chemical dosing and mitigating root causes of performance fluctuations, is essential.
March 2019- Present
Clean Water Services - Durham, Oregon Facility.
We are working hand in hand with Clean Water Services' engineers and analysts to develop a tool to improve stability of biological phosphorus removal at their Durham, Oregon treatment plant.
Research - Labs at Oregon State University and UCSD’s Boz Institute are working on understanding connections between microbial ecology, performance, and stability of biological phosphorus removal. Stay tuned for publications.
Technology - Our technology forecasts phosphorus concentrations in plant effluents that can be used to optimize chemical dosing and carbon loading to ensure treatment goals and process stability.
