Abstract An innovative way to treat municipal wastewater and produce energy at the same time is anaerobic treatment. Anaerobic processes are traditionally used for high-strength wastewater or municipal sludge treatment and only recently have been applied for the treatment of low strength municipal wastewater To investigate the performance of anaerobic wastewater treatment through the incorporation of membrane technology, a 40 L laboratory scale Anaerobic Membrane Bioreactor (AnMBR) with a flat s...
The demand for water is high in the food industry, particularly during the processing of animal product origin. A more sustainable approach to the use of the water resource is needed to reduce its waste. A systematic literature review was carried out from publications identified according to relevance and timeliness. The aim was to find alternative food processing production methods that considered both recycling and reuse of water in different slaughtering of animals such as cattle, swine, poul...

Abstract In the present study, the possibility of recovering both thermal energy and water for agricultural purposes from sewage is evaluated. A treatment plant, based on a sequencing batch biofilter granular reactor (SBBGR) followed by sand filtration and coupled with a solar wastewater source heat pump, was operated from September to November 2018 at a set-point temperature of 14 °C to verify the stability of heat recovery efficiency and the suitability of plant effluent to be reused for irrig...

Across the world, recent decades have witnessed large scale and rapid urbanization. Centralized wastewater treatment is typically considered the most desirable solution to meet domestic wastewater treatment needs in growing urban centers. These rely on extensive – and often expensive – infrastructure and treatment solutions that require expert engineering management to ensure effective operation. It is argued that the urban sustainability challenge of inadequate sanitation, deteriorating water q...

Abstract Rapid depletion of aquifers in semiarid and arid regions threatens water security. This holds true especially in emerging countries where insufficient knowledge about aquifer systems precludes the implementation of advanced management measures, such as managed aquifer recharge. This study deals with the generation of baseline knowledge for the assessment of aquifers in arid and semiarid regions where artificial recharge with reclaimed water gains increasing impetus. The Guadalupe aquife...

Rendering plants produce large amounts of wastewater that could be reused at the plant with adequate treatment. Membrane fouling is the main problem during the treatment of this type of wastewater by nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO). In order to reduce membrane fouling, the rendering plant secondary effluent was pretreated with two types of ultrafiltration (UF) membranes: MW as a flat sheet and ZW-1 as a hollow fiber membrane. The fouling on NF/RO flat sheet membranes (NF90, NF270, a...

Abstract The transition to circular economy requires the redesign of the water infrastructure, even more in the context of overexploitation of water resources and water scarcity. The shift of the existing water management toward circularity can be achieved by using a diversity of approaches and technologies. Decentralized water reuse systems can provide reclaimed water close to the point where wastewater is generated. Nature-based solutions (NBS) seem one of the best fitting options for this pur...

Abstract Water is at the core of sustainable development and is critical for socio-economic development, energy and food production, as well as healthy ecosystems and the benefits they deliver to us. Water and sanitation are vital for reducing the global burden of disease and improving the health, education and economic productivity of populations. Water reuse closes the loop between water supply and sanitation and provides an alternative water source. Wastewater treated to the right quality can...

Water management in industry by minimizing water consumption and effluent generation, reusing and/or recycling as a possibility the economy and conservation of water, energy and economic resources. The characterization of the final effluent allows evaluating how much the treatment is adequate to meet the requirements of the regulations of different countries for recycling and/or reuse and evaluated the possibility of reuse, as well as the choice of effluent treatment methods. In this case, techn...
