We’re excited to announce that Todd Webster, Ph.D., P.E. from Envirogen has co-authored a groundbreaking article titled “Evaluation of a sequential anaerobic-aerobic membrane bioreactor system for treatment of traditional and insensitive munitions constituents.” Don’t miss the opportunity to access the full article for FREE over the next 50 days: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0045653523021562?dgcid=coauthor
Published in Chemosphere Journal, the study highlights:
– A dual anaerobic-aerobic MBR system treated a wide range of traditional explosives, IHE, and anions including DNAN, RDX, HMX, TNT, NTO, NQ, NO3− and ClO4−.
– The MBR system was resilient to upsets and changing munitions constituents.
– Residual ATO present in the effluent of the dual system was readily oxidized using bleach.
– The dual MBR system is expected to be widely applicable and sustainable for treating wastewaters with explosives.
A special acknowledgment goes to Jim Pezzillo, whose contribution and MBR setup assistance were instrumental in this achievement.
This underscores Envirogen’s commitment to advancing environmental technology and engineering, addressing intricate challenges for a cleaner and safer world.
