2018 (English)In: Ecotechnologies for the Treatment of Variable Stormwater and Wastewater Flows / [ed] Katharina Tondera, Godecke-Tobias Blecken, Florent Chazarenc, Chris C. Tanner, Cham: Springer, 2018, p. 1-6Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The occurrence of variable stormwater and wastewater flows, mostly precipitation driven, brings with them the challenge of both peak flows and pollutant loads. Wastewater treatment systems can be divided into those that are specifically designed and operated to deal with variable flows, and those that presume more steady-state operation, only coping with peak flows as anomalies for short periods of time. To date, the different types and scales of variability and the impact of this variability on functioning and treatment performance have neither been well characterised nor properly dealt with for the design of suitable treatment systems. In this book, ecotechnologies are defined as processes for the treatment of variable wastewater flows that

  • harness ecological processes involving microbes, plants, animals, natural soils and media or recycled materials;

  • have a low reliance on mechanical machinery or external energy sources; and

  • have a positive impact on the quality and biodiversity of the surrounding environment.

This book focuses on treatment systems compliant with these definitions, but which are also specifically designed for variable flows.
