The WHO defines Category A wastewater as one which does not contain more than 1000 FCU 100 ml(-1) of faecal coliforms (FC) and less than 1 helminth egg (HE) per litre. The objectives of this work were to determine: 1) the disinfectant capacity of different concentrations of silver (Ag), silver-copper (Ag-Cu) and silver-copper-peracetic acid (Ag-Cu-PAA) when(More)
The green microalga Scenedesmus acutus was cultivated in two different municipal wastewater discharges (pre- and post-treated), and was compared to a culture medium with basic nutrients (20% of N, P, K), in order to study the simultaneous potential of nutrient removal and lipid accumulation ability. The highest level of nutrient removal was found in the(More)
Ciliates present in an activated sludge biological reactor used for removal of nitrogen compounds with intermitent aeration were determined. The reactor had a working volume of 30 liters, a hydraulic residence time of 20 hours, and a cell retention time of 15 days. Operating temperature was 15 degrees C, and it was fed with domestic sewage. Aeration was(More)
The aim of this project has been to study and compare the ciliate populations present in roptating biological reactors treating three different wastewaters. Wastewaters chosen were a maize mill (nejayote), a sugarcane/ethyl alcohol plant (vinasses) and a recycled paper mill (whitewaters). The initial dissolved organic contents, measured as soluble chemical(More)
The comparative study of the ciliate populations present in rotating biological reactors (biodiscs reactors) of 20 l working volume, treating three different wastewaters is the aim of this project. Wastewaters chosen were those of a maize mill, of a sugarcane/ethyl alcohol plant, and of a recycled paper mill. Its dissolved organic contents, measured as(More)
