Record #183812:

Wastewater treatment in Antarctica / M.A. Connor.

Title: Wastewater treatment in Antarctica / M.A. Connor.
Author(s): Connor, M. A.
Date: 2008.
In: Polar Record. (2008.), Vol. 44(229) (2008)
Abstract: Examines evolution of wastewater treatment practices in Antarctica, with particular reference to drivers for change and efforts by some countries to go beyond provisions of 1991 Madrid Protocol. Reviews types of treatment plants installed at research stations, and how these choices have been determined by constraints affecting engineering projects in Antarctica. Discusses biofilm-based processes; rotating biological contractors (RBC); contact aeration systems; repatriation of sludges and sludge dewatering techniques; and development of sophisticated processes such as membrane technologies and thermally efficient evaporative techniques.
