Aqua Enviro collaborates with I-Phyc to investigate microalgae reuse

Aqua Enviro have secured a project to investigate beneficial use of algae grown as part of a wastewater tertiary treatment process.

UNITED KINGDOM, JAN 14, 2019 — Aqua Enviro have secured a project to investigate beneficial use of algae grown as part of a wastewater tertiary treatment process.

As part of an Innovate UK grant titled “Commercial use of biomass generated by microalgal treatment of wastewater”, Industrial Phycology (I-Phyc) have commissioned Aqua Enviro to carry out market research in the wastewater and biomass sectors.

Aqua Enviro will carry out the market research to assess the viability and economics of recycling algae generated from wastewater treatment by the I-Phyc patented algae reactor.

In the domestic wastewater market, I-Phyc have been developing an algae reactor to remove phosphorus from wastewater as an alternative to metal ion dosing (commonly Ferric Sulphate) which is the method of choice currently within the UK Water Companies. The reactor is initially targeted at small wastewater treatment works with a domestic population of less than 1000.

The algae reactor has also been successfully used for treatment of domestic wastewaters and wastewaters from fruit juice, tin mining and dairy farming.

The objective of this project is to identify possible markets for algal biomass produced from the treatment of different wastewaters.

Aqua Enviro will aim to investigate the following uses for the algal biomass:

Anaerobic digester feed
Biofuels and Biolubricants
Animal & fish feed & Omega 3 oils
Plastics & Foams for commercial products

Lucie Novoveska, Chief Scientist at I-Phyc said “This is a great opportunity to move towards chemical free wastewater treatment and with the potential to produce a valuable by-product allowing us to approach a more environmentally friendly method of removing phosphorus from wastewater.”

    Conroe Bay Water Sewer Corporation is responsible for protecting the drinking water supply from contamination or pollution which could result from improper system construction or configuration on the retail connection owner's side of the meter. The purpose of this service agreement is to notify each customer of the restrictions which are in place to provide this protection. The public water system enforces these restrictions to ensure the public health and welfare. Each retail customer must sign this agreement before Conroe Bay Water Sewer Corporation will begin service. In addition, when service to an existing retail connection has been suspended or terminated, the water system will not re- establish service unless it has a signed copy of this agreement.
    The following unacceptable practices are prohibited by State regulations.
    1. No direct connection between the public drinking water supply and a potential source of contamination is permitted. Potential sources of contamination shall be isolated from the public water system by an air-gap or an appropriate backflow prevention device.
    2. No cross-connection between the public drinking water supply and a private water system is permitted. These potential threats to the public drinking water supply shall be eliminated at the service connection by the installation of an air-gap or a reduced pressure-zone backflow prevention device.
    3. No connection which allows water to be returned to the public drinking water supply is permitted.
    4. No pipe or pipe fitting which contains more than 0.25% lead may be used for the installation or repair of plumbing at any connection which provides water for human use.
    5. No solder or flux which contains more than 0.2% lead can be used for the installation or repair of plumbing at any connection which provides water for human use.
    The following are the terms of the service agreement between Conroe Bay Water Sewer Corporation (the Water System)
    1. The Water System will maintain a copy of this agreement as long as the Customer and/or the premises is connected to the Water System.
    2. The Customer shall allow his property to be inspected for possible cross- connections and other potential contamination hazards. These inspections shall be conducted by the Water System or its designated agent prior to initiating new water service; when there is reason to believe that cross- connections or other potential contamination hazards exist; or after any major changes to the private water distribution facilities. The inspections shall be conducted during the Water System's normal business hours.
