and Wastewater Treatment
Wastewater treatment facilities often have the undesirable side
effect of strong odors that migrate outside of property boundaries.
The use of GSA's odor control product, ZK406H, has the beneficial
effect of reducing strong odors in addition to the more commonly
used cation exchange properties which also eliminates volatile organic
compounds(VOC). Facilities using composting or other solid waste
disposal methods for recycling the organic components can also use
ZK406H to reduce bothersome odors and help retain ammonia and other
nutrients in the composted material.
is a major issue for the treatment of municipal wastewater. Ammonia
levels in municipal wastewater can be reduced to 30-35 ppm through
traditional primary and secondary treatment facilities. However,
tertiary treatment is required to lower the ammonia concentration
below 10 ppm. Polishing columns containing clinoptilolite, a natural
zeolite, are commonly used to lower the level of ammonium to acceptable
discharge levels. The zeolite beds are regenerated with a sodium
elution and have very long bed lives if properly maintained. The
GSA products commonly used in this application are ZS403H and ZS500RW.
The size of zeolite used in wastewater
polishing filter columns varies according to the design. A size
specification of 20 x 35 or 8 x 20 Tyler mesh is typical for this
application. Work on enhancing the ammonia specificity of our ZS403H
product is underway in a joint project with New Earth Systems which
is developing a modular wastewater treatment system for remote subdivisions
and golf courses under mandate to use recycled effluents for their
