Wastewater Reuse Technology Trials

Project Overview

CDS Technologies has a patented high rate technology that has been applied chiefly to the physical separation of gross solids from stormwater and sewage. This project included trials involving application of the FSS process to sewer mining by combining it with other downstream processes to produce a high quality effluent from raw sewage for reuse purposes.

Overall the project was aimed at providing an attractive option for treating sewage to a standard acceptable for re-use.

More specific objectives were to:

  • Establish water quality standards through testing that could be achieved by the plant,
  • Identify costs per kilolitre for water of different quality
  • Establish the footprint required for the various operating regimes.
