Tertiary Equivalent 95 BOD Reduction plus Phosphate Removal

A tertiary treatment plant removes practically all solid and organic contaminants from wastewater, thereby producing drinkable water direct from sewage. Many tertiary treatment plants include nitrogen removal systems using either bacterial nitrification, air stripping, or ion exchange.

In times of scarce water resources, the treatment systems described may represent the future source of water for semiarid or highly populated regions as well as the means to eliminate water pollution.
