Ozonization process to clean river water

Post-Kumbh, Kshipra ozonization to continue

Indore: With an aim to keep Kshipra water clean for devotees in the holy city Ujjain, the local administration is designing a proposal to continue ozonization process at Ram ghat and Sunheri ghat.

Ozone used to clean river water

 Ujjain Municipal Corporation had signed a month long contract for ozonization with a Gurgaon based Purab Logistics firm for Rs 9 crore. During Simhastha, ozonization plants were installed at Ramghat, Mangalnath, Gaughat, Sunheri Ghat and Lalpul. Out of these plants, the administration is planning to retain the plants at two ghats which cost around Rs 95 lakh per plant.

Asheesh Singh, additional commissioner, Ujjain Municipal Corporation said, “We are planning to continue the ozonization process to keep the river water clean. The maintenance and operations will be handled by the corporation.”

 Ozone plants convert the oxygen into ozone and dissolve it in river. Consequently, the ozone destroys the impurities of bio-waste, chemicals and germs.

Better water on the way

Better water on the way with the implementation of ozone for disinfection

LIVERMORE — Prodded by long-term taste and health concerns about its Delta drinking water, the supplier for 220,000 Tri-Valley residents is adding a new water disinfectant more effective than chlorine.

Adding ozone gas — an estimated $30 million project — will produce better tasting water with lower levels of a known carcinogen, as well as several chemicals of emerging concern such as endocrine disrupters, says the Alameda County Zone 7 Water Agency.

The district is a relative latecomer to ozone. The disinfectant has been used for years or decades several Bay Area water districts, including Santa Clara Valley, Alameda County, East Bay Municipal and Contra Costa Water.

Last week, Zone 7 moved to join them. Its water board approved a $2.7 million design contract to draw up plans for ozone equipment at the district’s largest treatment plant. It will take at least three years to finish the installation, officials estimated.

“Ozone will improve our water quality,” said Jill Duerig, the Zone 7 district general manager. “We think it will help a lot in dealing with taste and odor issues related to algae and other organic materials in Delta water.”

The district supplies treated wholesale water to city and local water systems in Livermore, Pleasanton, Dublin and part of San Ramon.The Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta — where Zone 7 gets its state water supply — is full of organic material and vulnerable to algae blooms. A recent Delta algae bloom resulted in many consumer taste complaints about Tri-Valley water until the last few days.

Ozone, a highly reactive gas, seeks out and breaks up organics that can impart bad smells and odors to drinking water.

Ozone also reduces the formation of disinfection byproducts called trihalomethanes that can cause cancer. The substances form readily when chlorine is added to water.

Zone 7’s concentrations of trihalomethanes is within public health standards, with not with as great a margin to spare as the district would like, Duerig said.

“There is no one silver bullet in water treatment, but this gives an important new tool,” she said.

Zone 7 has moved slowly to embrace ozone because of the high cost and the board’s historical reluctance to borrow money instead of funding new projects on a pay-as-you go basis.

With the ozone equipment planned, however, Zone 7 is looking into selling bonds and other financing alternatives to fund long-term projects.

The ozone project could raise Zone 7’s water rates about 3 percent, Duerig said.

Angela Ramirez Holmes was the only Zone 7 board member to vote against the ozone design contract.

She said Friday she is disturbed the district committed to spend nearly $3 million to design the project without knowing how it will finance the other $27 million of the cost.

“I think we should know the whole picture before we commit to a nearly $3 million down payment,” Ramirez Holmes said.

Ozone reviewed for water reuse options

The Qatar Environment & Energy Research Institute (Qeeri), one of the three research institutes under Hamad Bin Khalifa University, is in the process of conducting a pilot research into the reuse of treated sewage effluent and agricultural waste water, Gulf Times has learnt.
“A modular pilot plant will be used in the experiments to deliver improved, high-quality water that can be used for irrigation, grey water application, district cooling and other purposes” said Qeeri acting executive director Dr Khalid al-Subai.
“The reuse of treated sewage effluent will provide a major water source in Qatar for agriculture and industrial applications and reduce the demand on desalinated water and major capital investments to build more desalination plants.”
According to Dr al-Subai, the Qeeri project “Reuse of Treated Sewage Effluent and Agriculture Waste Water” aims to investigate the efficacy of ozone and ozone-based advanced oxidation process in conjunction with other treatment processes for the reuse of treated sewage effluent, industrial, and agriculture wastewater.
The official explained: “The pilot scale research would investigate the improvement and optimisation of wastewater treatment processes from reuse perspectives and the efficacy of advanced treatment technology such as ozone and ozone based advanced oxidation process to provide the required treatment.”
These applications could provide wastewater treatment plant operating authorities significant information on best practices to reduce and eliminate negative impacts from waste water effluents.
The design will include hybrid technologies to provide an optimised operation that could improve treatment process.
The official pointed out that Qeeri was dealing with two national grand challenges of water security and energy security. “Ensuring water sustainability includes identification and management of water resources; maintaining water production in terms of quantity and quality, researching the most efficient desalination technologies at minimum cost, conserving environmental quality and managing water for society,” he maintained.
Dr al-Subai said Qeeri had a project-oriented structure where basic fundamental and applied sciences are integrated to achieve water sustainability.”The main research areas are desalination technologies, groundwater mapping and recharge, and reuse of treated wastewater.
We are conducting cutting-edge research and development programmes in these three areas.
“The aims of these R&D projects are to: increase energy efficiency, reduce costs, and minimise health risks and environmental impacts.The water security grand challenge programme at Qeeri involves the research and development of innovative techniques from concepts to near market products.”
The official noted that high quality and innovative research programmes were pursued at Qeeri along with other stakeholders including Kahramaa, QWEC, Ashghal, Ministry of Environment and Municipalities, Qatar Cool as well as with industries in the oil and gas sector that use and produce large amount of water.
“A key component for achieving water sustainability is the partnerships with governmental water authorities.
Qeeri has also launched a monthly open programme called “Science Majlis” as part of its activities to raise awareness among school children and the public on the topic,” he added.
