Anaerobic biological treatment for wastewater is a very effective technology, particularly for heavily loaded large-scale industrial applications, mainly in the Food & Beverage and Pulp & Paper markets. In anaerobic conditions, wastewater is converted into biogas with low excess sludge, hence presenting a highly cost-effective treatment method.
The DACS® DANA hybrid process provides an end-to-end solution for clients with high-load wastewater that are required to meet stringent discharge or reuse limits.
- No air/oxygen supply needed in the anaerobic process
- Wastewater converted into biogas
- Highly effective combination between aerobic and anaerobic treatment in one tank
- Thanks to flexible configuration, fits into any available tank
- Highly cost effective
- Possibility to use biogas created in the process
- Small footprint
- Robust solution
- Reduced energy consumption
- Production of green biogas
How does DACS® DANA work?
In this configuration, the anaerobic DACS® reactor is followed by an aerobic polish of an AGAR® MBBR reactor. The flexibility of the DACS® reactor geometry allows putting the aerobic reactor on top of the anaerobic one, thus significantly reducing overall system footprint, a significant advantage for industrial facilities with limited space.
Moreover, streamlining the two processes supplied by a single vendor provides the client with a “one-stop-shop” approach and full integration of biological processes.
