Technology: optAER® fine-bubble lagoon aeration (and associated process upgrades)
- Effectively improves lagoon cBOD and TSS treatment
- Stops nuisance odors
- Reduces sludge by promoting internal digestion
- Facultative lagoons/waste stabilization ponds
- Old or underperforming aerated lagoons
- cBOD removal
- TSS removal
- Algae control/pH stabilization
- Water Reuse
- Sludge reduction
Associated Case Studies:
Your challenge: Improve lagoon BOD/TSS removal
Reduce BOD/TSS: Improve Biological Oxygen Demand and suspended solids removal performance to meet lower limits without constructing additional lagoons.
Increase capacity: Upgrade the lagoon to increase the design capacity of the system and accommodate new industrial contributions or community growth.
Reduce energy consumption: Upgrade existing aeration with fine bubble aeration to reduce energy requirements.
Reduce energy consumption: The old aeration is using a lot of power to little effect.
Stop odors and sludge build-up: Nuisance odors spell trouble for a town’s aromatic aesthetic, while manual sludge removal spell trouble for its pocketbook.
Save space, time, and money: You'd like to do it on a compact footprint, and as usual, the simpler to operate and more inexpensive the solution, the better.
Our technology: optAER® Fine-Bubble Lagoon Aeration
The Nexom optAER system is an efficient pond-based wastewater treatment solution used in a broad spectrum of applications. In comparison to conventional mechanical treatment facilities, optAER process-enhanced lagoons maintain the simplicity of a lagoon system at a fraction of the cost to construct and operate.
Of course, aside from financial benefits, the documented performance of optAER systems make it a reliable solution for achieving high effluent quality and meeting increasingly stringent wastewater effluent regulations, especially when paired with Nexom’s other lagoon-based process upgrades (including SAGR™ post-lagoon nitrification and infini-D™ Zero-Downtime Phosphorus Removal System).
The sludge digestion capability of the optAER process results in minimal long-term solids accumulation, extending the design life of the lagoons and allowing longer operation prior to de-sludging.
