Technology

The low energy technologies that The Water and Carbon Group utilise in our solutions are proven processes that have successfully operated around the world for decades. Our experienced team of  professionals and international partners bring the skill and knowledge required to deliver these systems in an Australian environment.

Trickling Filters

Plastic media has transformed the treatment capability of trickling filters making them two to three times more effective for a given volume over traditional stone fill. Reductions of more than 95 percent are now possible in BOD and ammonia, making trickling filters a viable option in many instances.

Sludge Treatment Reed Beds

Sludge treatment reed beds (STRBs) are an alternative low energy, lower cost solution to managing sludge compared to traditional mechanical dewatering processes such as belt presses and centrifuges. They comprise a series of gravel/sand basins that are planted with wetland plants/reeds and are capable of treatment many types of sludge including digested or undigested activated sludge, and water treatment works sludge.

Sub Surface Wetlands

Sub-Surface Flow Treatment Wetlands are ecological engineered systems comprising planted gravel/sand substrate where flows pass through the system below the ground. They rely on mechanisms such as physical filtration and biofilms, growing on gravel or other media, and plant roots. They can be divided into Horizontal Flow Sub-Surface wetlands or Vertical Flow Sub-Surface wetlands.

Surface Flow Wetlands

Surface Flow Treatment Wetlands are commonly used for treating wastewaters and stormwaters. They comprise a shallow containment dam arrangement with dense coverage of plants and the water flows through the stems of the plants about 200-300mm above the surface. The stems, leaf matter, and detritus provided by the wetland plants afford a rich organic surface for healthy microbiological populations to grow and treat water, as it passes through the vegetation and biomass.

Waste Stabilisation Ponds

Waste stabilisation ponds are commonly used for the treatment of sewage due to their operational simplicity and low mechanical requirements, including low power demand. This makes them an attractive solution for remote, regional and privately operated treatment facilities.

Effluent Disposal

Developing a comprehensive wastewater management strategy does not only entail selecting an appropriate treatment solution. It also involves finding suitable disposal pathways for the final effluent. In fact, treatment processes are too often decided upon without first fully understanding disposal pathway options, and determining the water quality specifications that are required from the treatment infrastructure.
