Water and Wastewater Mixing
The generation of increased quantities of wastewater and sludge has led to significant ongoing capital expenditure on new and refurbished wastewater treatment plant and sludge treatment facilities in AMPs 4 and 5. Particular attention has been paid to biological nitrogen and phosphorous removal, chemical phosphorous removal, storm water treatment and sludge processing. These operations require a quantified knowledge of the specific process mixing and hydraulic requirements, well-designed and efficient mixing systems and where applicable, accurate information on sludge flow behaviour or rheology.
The WWM Industrial Consortium Programme is run to address this.
