Containerized Wastewater Treatement Plant - Military

PROBLEM: The Department of Defense needed a deployable, autonamous, containerized, rapid start up wastewater treatment plant for remote locations. 

PROCESS: PCDworks designed advanced controls, sensors, and logging capabilities, and implemented a LabVIEW-based control system, complete with a host of remote pressure, depth, and flow sensors and pumps.


The Water Phoenix is an attached-growth portable wastewater treatment system that uses Submerged Fixed-Bed Biofilm Reactor (SFBBR) technology.  AWS' fixed-bed system benefits from specialized, high surface area media which promote a healthy environment for beneficial microbial activity and biofilm formation.  The result is a highly effective, easy to operate wastewater treatment system that can be provided as a portable treatment plant, permanent installation or retrofit into an existing activated sludge process.
In its portable form, AWS' SFBBR technology is excellent for wastewater treatment/reuse in new real estate developments, as additional or replacement treatment capacity for wastewater utility providers, and as "scalping plants" for direct, non-potable water reuse.  In retrofit applications, the capacity of existing conventional activated sludge plants can be increased dramatically.
