I. Technology & Design


a) Treatment Philosophy:
Raw sewage after primary treatment comprising of Bar screen and Grit chamber is taken by gravity into
the C-Tech Basins. These C-Tech basins work in sequence and the influent flow is distributed using
Automatic Gates provided in the Inlet Chamber of C-Tech basins. The C-Tech basins are equipped with
air blowers, diffusers, Return Activated Sludge (RAS) pumps, Surplus Activated Sludge (SAS) pumps,
Decanters, Auto valves, PLC etc. All cycles will be automatically controlled using PLC.

Excess sludge at a consistency level of approx 0.8% will be pumped intermittently from SAS
pump. The sludge is taken for dewatering.
The treated effluent from the C-Tech Basins will be collected in the Chlorination tank where it is
chlorinated before being discharged.
b) Process Chemistry:
Removal of Organics
The raw sewage free from debris and grit shall be taken up for Biological treatment for the
removal of organics, nitrogen and phosphorus.
The activated sludge bio system is designed using Cyclic Activated Sludge Technology
which operates on extended aeration activated sludge principle for the reduction of carbonaceous
BOD, Nitrification, Denitrification as well as phosphorous removal, using energy efficient fine
bubble membrane diffused aeration system, with automatic control of oxygen uptake rate, resulting
in 20 30% power savings.
The practice of manipulating activated sludge reaction environments to obtain maximum
nitrogen and phosphorous removal has been optimized, using cyclic activated sludge technology, by
co-current nitrification denitrification mechanism.
In its simplest form, the sequences of fill, aeration, settle and decant are consecutively and
continuously operated all in the same tank, allowing up to 30-40% space saving. No secondary
clarifier system is required to concentrate the sludge in the reactor. The return sludge is recycled and
the surplus sludge is wasted from the C-Tech basin itself.
The system makes use of the variable volume treatment in combination with a biological
Selector and operated in a fed-batch reactor mode. The complete biological operation is divided into
cycles. A basic cycle comprises:

Fill Aeration

Settlement

Decanting

Signature of applicant with seal

16

These phases in a sequence constitute a cycle, which is then repeated. During the period of a
cycle, the liquid volume inside the Reactor increases from a set operating bottom water level.
During the Fill- Aeration sequence mixed liquor from the aeration zone is recycled into the Selector.
Aeration ends at a predetermined period of the cycle to allow the biomass to flocculate and settle
under quiescent conditions. After a specific settling period, the treated supernatant is decanted, using
a moving weir Decanter. The liquid level in the Reactor is so returned to the bottom water level after
which the cycle is repeated. Solids are wasted from the Reactor during the decanting phase.
The system selected is capable of achieving the following:
i) Anoxic denitrification of nitrates in the Biological Selector zone of C-Tech (Anoxic Zone)
using incoming wastewater
ii) Bio-degradation of organics including phenol present in the wastewater by Extended
Aeration Process
iii) Oxidation of sulphides in the wastewater
iv) Co-current nitrification and denitrification of ammoniacal nitrogen in the aeration zone of
C-Tech basin.
v) Removal of phosphorous
Denitrification
The wastewater enters the Selector zone in the front end of the C-Tech, where anoxic
conditions are maintained. Part of the treated wastewater along with return sludge from the aeration
basin is recycled here, using RAS Pumps. With the incorporation of biological Selector there is no
need for an Anoxic Mixing sequence and is therefore replaced by a simple Fill Aeration
sequence.
As the microorganisms meet high BOD, low DO condition in the Selector zone, natural
selection of phosphate accumulating microorganisms and floc-forming microorganisms takes place.
This is very effective in containing all of the known low F/M bulking microorganisms and
eliminates the problems of bulking and surface foaming. Also, due to the anoxic conditions in the
Selector zone, denitrification and phosphorous removal occurs by co-current nitrification &
Denitrification. Complete nitrification and denitrification pathways take place with nitrification
taking place external to the activated sludge flocs and denitrification taking place within the interior
of the flocs. This denitrification pathway is not bound to the absence of dissolved oxygen in the
liquid phase but requires diffusion of nitrate into the anoxic parts of the floc with a probable use of
stored intracellular carbon or adsorbed organic carbon for denitrification. During anaerobic
conditions, all phosphorous that is released to the liquid phase is totally contained within the bio
solids layer.

Biological denitrification in the Selector zone by recycling of mixed liquor from aeration zone
requires nitrification of all ammoniacal nitrogen in the incoming wastewater in the aeration zone.
This requirement of plant design is met by operating the C-tech under Extended Aeration Process
with higher c values, which ensure co-current nitrification and denitrification in the aeration zone.
Denitrification releases nitrogen which escapes as an inert gas to the atmospheres, while the
oxygen released stays dissolved in the liquid and thus reduces the oxygen input needed for the
aeration.
The process of denitrification of nitrates is represented as:
NO3- + BOD N2 + CO2 + H2O + OH- + cells.
Carbonaceous BOD removal
The aeration zone of C-Tech is provided with diffused aeration to oxidize the organic matter
including phenol, by Extended Aeration Process. An extended aeration activated sludge process
operates in the endogenous respiration phase of the growth curve where the microorganisms are
forced to metabolize their own protoplasm without replacement, since the concentration of food
available is at a minimum. During this phase, the nutrients remaining in the dead cells diffuse out to
furnish the remaining cells with food. This system has been developed for application where
minimum solids production is desirable. Less solids production is achieved by using a larger fraction
of the entering organic material for energy rather than for synthesis. This means that more oxygen
will be consumed per unit mass of organic material removed.
The activated sludge process is capable of converting most organic wastes to more stable
inorganic forms or to cellular mass. In this process, the soluble and colloidal organic material is
metabolized by a diverse group of microorganisms to carbon dioxide and water. At the same time, a
sizeable fraction of incoming organic matter is converted to cellular mass that can be separated from
the effluent by settling.
Activated sludge comprises a mixed microbial culture wherein the bacteria are responsible
for oxidizing the organic matter, while protozoa consume the dispersed un-flocculated bacteria and
rotifers consume the unsettled small bio-flocs in the treated wastewater, performing the role of
effluent polishers.
The utilization of substrate by a bacterial cell can be described as a three-step process:
i) The substrate molecule contacts the cell wall.
ii) The substrate molecule is transported into the cell
iii) Metabolism of the substrate molecule by the cell

However, as the bacteria require the molecule in the soluble form, colloidal, spherically
incompatible molecules, which cannot be readily biodegradable, have to be first adsorbed to the cell
surface and then broken down or transformed externally to transportable fractions by exo-enzymes
or wall-bounded enzymes. The organic matter will be utilized by the bacteria resulting in cell
synthesis and energy for maintenance.
The following reactions best describe the organic utilization by the aerobic bacteria:
i) Oxidation
COHNS + O2 + Bacteria CO2 + NH3 + other End Products + Energy
ii) Synthesis
COHNS + O2 + Bacteria C5H7O2N (New Bacterial Cell)
iii) Endogenous Respiration
C5H7O2N + 5O2 5CO2 + NH3 + 2H2O + Energy
Nutrients available in the wastewater or from external source of supplements cater to the
nutrient requirements of the aerobic microorganisms and to enhance the activity of the aerobic
microbes.
In addition to the nutrient requirements, the aerobic microbes require oxygen to sustain their
microbial activity. Oxygen also functions as a terminal electron acceptor in the energy metabolism
of the aerobic heterotrophic organisms indigenous to the activated sludge process. In other words a
portion of the organic material removed is oxidized to provide energy for the maintenance function
and the synthesis function.

Nitrification
Any oxidation must be coupled with reduction, and oxygen satisfies this requirement in the
aerobic microorganisms. Extended Aeration system, with high c values, ensures uniform
nitrification performance. Nitrification results from the oxidation of ammonia present in the sewage
by Nitrosomanas to nitrite and the subsequent oxidation of the nitrite to nitrate by Nitrobacter. The
nitrifying organisms are strict aerobic autotrophes and use carbon source present in the sewage, in
the presence of oxygen, maintained at 2 mg/l in the C-Tech to avoid oxygen limitation. The
nitrification of ammonia can be represented as given below:
NITROSOMONAS

2 NH4+ + 3O2

2 NO2- + O2

2NO2- + 2 H2O + 4 H+ + New Cells

NITROBACTOR

2NO3- + New Cells

The diffused aeration system is sized so that sufficient oxygen is provided for carbonaceous
treatment, sludge stabilization, nitrification and maintaining the DO at the specified level of 2 mg/l,
taking into account the reduction in oxygen demand due to denitrification. The capacity of diffused
aeration in each C-Tech basin will be sufficient to ensure good mixing conditions during Fill
Aeration phase of the cycle of operation.
Phosphorous removal
The removal of phosphorous from the wastewater is accomplished by the consumption of P
for the cell growth. During anoxic conditions, all phosphorous that is released to the liquid phase is
totally contained within the bio solids layer.
c) Process Description:
The C-TECH system is operated in a batch reactor mode, which eliminates all the
inefficiencies of the continuous processes. A batch reactor is a perfect reactor, which ensures
100% treatment. Six modules are provided to ensure continuous treatment. The complete
process takes place in a single reactor, within which all biological treatment steps take place
sequentially.
No additional settling unit / secondary clarifier are required
The complete biological operation is divided into cycles. Each cycle is of 3 5 hrs
duration (3 hours as design basis); during which all treatment steps take place.

These phases in a sequence constitute a cycle, which is then repeated.


A Typical Cycle
During the period of a cycle, the liquid is filled in the C Tech Basin up to a set operating
water level. Aeration Blowers are started for aeration of the effluent. After the aeration cycle,
the biomass settles under perfect settling conditions. Once Settled the supernatant is removed
from the top using a DECANTER. Solids are wasted from the tanks during the decanting
phase.
These phases in a sequence constitute a cycle, which is then repeated.

d)

Biological SELECTOR zone


The incorporation of a biological SELECTOR in the front end of the C-TECH- Systems
distinguishes it from all other technologies. The raw effluent enters the SELECTOR zone, where
ANOXIC MIX conditions are maintained. Part of the treated effluent along with return sludge
from the aeration basin is recycled in here, using RAS pumps. As the microorganisms meet high
BOD, low DO condition in the SELECTOR, natural selection of predominantly floc-forming
microorganisms takes place. This is very effective in containing all of the known low F/M
bulking microorganisms, eliminates problems of bulking and sludge foaming. This process
ensures excellent settling characteristics of the bio sludge. SVI of treated effluent of less than
120 is achieved in all seasons.
Also due to the anoxic conditions in the SELECTOR zone, De nitrification and
phosphorous removal occurs in case the Ammonical nitrogen and phosphorous levels are high in
the effluent. The figure below shows the experience with SVI developments in parallel
operations with a wastewater that traditionally favours sludge

Dissolved Oxygen Control


The C Tech process uses measurement of dissolved oxygen (DO) levels in the basin to enhance
treatment efficiency and optimise power consumption. The DO concentration in the basin is
continuously monitored using a DO sensor. Once DO level is measured in the basins, a variable
frequency drive automatically alters the aeration blower rpm to maintain desired DO levels in the
basin. This methodology provides a true in-basin method for the efficient use of energy.

f)
`

Decanter Assembly
The clean supernatant is removed from the basin using a Decanter assembly complete in
stainless steel construction. During decanting there is no inflow to the basin. The moving weir
DECANTER is motor driven and travels slowly from its park position to a designated bottom
water level. Once the Decanting phase sets in, the decanter automatically lowers to the required
bottom level. Variable frequency drives are provided to control the rate of movement of the
Decanters.
After the required level of supernatant is removed the Decanter is returned to its park position
through reversal of the drive. The basin is now ready for the next cycle to begin.

Operational Simplicity - Fully PLC based intelligent control


The complete CTech plant operation is controlled automatically thro a PLC system, which is a
major factor in reducing operating costs. This also prevents mal operation of the various set
process parameters within the plant. All key functions like, RAS, sludge wasting, aeration
intensity, cycle time control, decanting rate etc are automatically controlled as well as data
logged. Complete historical records of plant operation are available on touch of a button.
