a new concept for storm water treatment: full-scale experience in flanders.current practice in flanders (belgium) is to limit the hydraulic capacity of the wastewater treatment plant to 6q14. a maximum of 3q14 is treated in the activated sludge system, the excess flow undergoes only physical treatment (stepscreen, sand trap and settling). this paper focuses on an alternative storm management operation strategy aiming at maintaining plant performance and reducing the total pollutant discharge towards the receiving waterbody. given the observed dilution of incoming waste ...200111496673
re-use of biologically treated wastewater of a brewery.despite excessive rainfalls, flanders is dealing with a water deficiency. a rational use of water is a necessity. apart from the prevention principle, the re-use of biologically treated wastewater (bio-effluent) is increasingly considered. from earlier research it is known that reverse osmosis (ro) is necessary for the elimination of salts and low molecular compounds from the bio-effluent. a thorough pretreatment is necessary to remove drastically the suspended solids, which are harmful to the r ...200115954568
individual wastewater treatment in flanders (belgium).in flanders, it is not possible to centralise the infrastructure for handling all wastewater. decentralised treatment should be considered an essential part of an overall regional policy. decentralised wastewater treatment can be small-scale (20 to 2,200 inhabitant equivalent (ie)) or individual (less than 20 ie). this paper deals with the operation, performances, technological aspects and costs of individual wastewater treatment plants (iwtps) in flanders. different treatment systems are descri ...200115954588
