What Is Effluent Treatment Plants
A wastewater treatment process (WWTP) that is used to treat wastewater is referred to as an Effluent Treatment Plant, or ETP. It is mostly utilized in sectors like pharmaceuticals, textiles, and chemicals where there is a risk of severe water contamination.
Domestic sewage and industrial wastewater are both treated in large part by effluent treatment plants. In the wastewater treatment process of an ETP plant, organic matter, inorganic matter, heavy metals, oil & grease, suspended particles, and other impurities are treated.
There are various types of wastewater treatment plants, including chemical, biological, combined chemical and biological, and thermal.
Benefits of Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP)
- To decrease the amount of freshwater used in the industry
- To lower the cost of purchasing water
- To comply with the government’s guidelines for pollution emissions and avoid facing severe penalties
- To protect the environment from pollution
- To purify industrial waste so that it can be recycled and used again
How does Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) Plant Work?
The conceptual approach of the treatment include the clearance of suspended particles, the processing of dissolved organic matter, and the disposal of sludge. There are several processes at play:
pH Control –
The Bureau of Indian Standards specifies that the pH of effluent should range from 5.5 to 9.0. (BIS). Waste water’s pH can be changed using pH neutralizing.
The heavy particles sink to the bottom because water moves slowly in this process. The debris that collects at a container’s bottom is referred to as sludge.
The raw effluent from various processing units is balanced in the equalization tank. The wastewater is gathered in an already-existing mixed effluent tank and sent to an already-existing aeration tank, which also serves as an equalization tank. Before being pumped to the neutralization tank for treatment, the effluent is homogenized using the floating aerator.
Water is filtered by running it through a device that traps particles. Sand and gravel layers are used to create the filters. These filters must be regularly cleaned through backwashing.
Water is cleaned and disinfected before it is distributed. Water is cleaned and disinfected with chlorine.
Coagulation is a process that includes mixing untreated water with liquid aluminum sulfate. Due to the mixing that results, small dirt particles stick together. Through settling and filtration, it is simple to remove the bigger, heavier particles created by the combination of these smaller ones.
Sludge drying –
Solids are gathered and brought to drying beds by settling during sedimentation. The sludge charging should be halted and the bed separated so that natural evaporation can dry it out after the sludge thickness reaches around 300 mm. It takes about ten days to do this.
