Abstract
NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: There is an immediate demand for floating bead filters with improved single pass removal characteristics for wastewater treatment. AST has identified several potential areas of bead filter application that are inhibited by poor single pass removal of fine particles. These potential areas of application include treatment aquaculture backwash waters and effluents, aquacultural influent treatment systems, water pretreatment systems, nutrient harvesting systems and display aquaria. Successful completion of this research effort will facilitate rapid expansion into several new markets including agriculture and domestic wastewater treatment, potable water treatment, swimming pool filtration, industrial cooling water systems, and educational applications such as zoos and large public aquaria.
