  1. 1. Cradle-to-Gate LCA of Water Treatment Alternatives : A case study performed for Norrvatten’s future waterwork expansion

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Siddharth Selvarajan; [2021]
    Keywords : Life cycle assessment; Water purification method; Potable water production; Microbiological barrier; Activated carbon; Sludge separation; Livscykelbedömning; Vattenreningsmetod; Produktion av dricksvatten; Mikrobiologisk barriär; Aktivt kol; Slamavskiljnin;

    Abstract : Norrvatten is a municipal association which owns a water treatment plant capable of supplying good quality drinking water to the consumers in the associated neighbouring municipalities. After preliminary investigations for the future year of 2050, there were estimates which suggest a potential water quality degradation in the lake which supplies the raw water for treatment due to uncertain future climatic conditions and other forms of pollutions from the surrounding.

  2. 2. GAC filter Design Criteria for Wastewater Treatment for Removal of Organic Micropollutants – A Literature Review

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Bhargav Reddy Elavarthi; [2021]
    Keywords : micropollutants; activated carbon filtration; empty bed contact time EBCT ; pharmaceuticals; breakthrough curves; adsorption; PFOS; carbon use; water and environmental engineering; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) is nowadays suggested as a fourth (quaternary) treatment step at municipal wastewater treatment plants to remove certain chemicals and particularly organic micropollutants (OMPs). This work investigated the different factors that affect the performance of the GAC filter for the removal of micropollutants in a municipal wastewater treatment plant. READ MORE

  3. 3. On-Site Regeneration of Granular Activated Carbon : A literature study, comparison and assessment of different regeneration methods to find potential on-site regeneration method in Sweden

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Chinmay Mishra; [2021]
    Keywords : Granular Activated Carbon; GAC On-site Regeneration; Cost Estimation Analysis; GAC Chemical Regeneration;

    Abstract : In this thesis project, different existing granular activated carbon regeneration methods/technologies are assessed based on existing literature. The project aims to identify and analyse the method with the highest on-site regeneration potential by using the Himmerfjärdsverket wastewater treatment plant as a reference and performing a cost estimation analysis.

  4. 4. Are organohalogen compounds in backwash water from swimming pool facilities treatable? : An experimental investigation of removal capacities by different filter materials

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Emma-Helena Ericsson; [2020]
    Keywords : AOX; EOX; wastewater treatment plant; column test; granular activated carbon; natural zeolites; Polonite r ; Zugol;

    Abstract : Organohalogen compounds are formed in swimming pool waters when natural organic matter, such as hair, urine or sweat etc., react with the used disinfectant (usually chlorine). Many of the organohalogen compounds are persistent and hazardous for human health and aquatic ecosystems. READ MORE

  5. 5. Technical Possibilities of Wastewater Reclamation for Potable Use in Hurva, Scania : Regarding the Waterbalance and From a Process Technical Point of View

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Esmeralda Frihammar; [2020]
    Keywords : Potable Wastewater Reclamation; Re-use; VA SYD; WWTP; DWTP; Återanvändning; avloppsvatten; cirkulära vattensystem; dricksvattenverk; reningsverk; VA SYD;

    Abstract : During recent years both Sweden and the rest of Europe have experienced periods of drought as a consequence of hot summers with low levels of precipitation. For villages provided with drinking water from water plants with groundwater as raw water source droughts can lead to considerable problems if the groundwater reservoir would be affected. READ MORE
