Developing the new biotechnology of residential waste water treatment under low-temperature conditions. Print

For the first time we developed the biotechnology of hyperhaline (with 35 g/l sea salt concentration) waste water treatment from anthropogenic pollution for ecologically clean environmental regions (Arctic, Antarctica). The biotechnology presumes using the indigenous microbial associations, isolated from sea silt. We created the pilot plant and defined the stereometrical parameters of the module and the carriers of microorganisms-organic compound destructors as well as control technological parameters of the treating process. Using of this biotechnology in a flowing module allowed decreasing organic compound concentration in 15 times. The biotechnology developed by us is efficient and ecologically safe and may be used for domestic wastewater treatment on Ukrainian Antarctic station Academician Vernadsky.
