Actiflo® Carb for tertiary treatment EDCS removal



The Actiflo® is a physicochemical process well suited for drinking water clarification in particular of surface water. It combines the benefits of ballasted flocculation and ballasted settling in a lamellar clarifier. This process is thus very efficient and compact (between 5 and 20 times smaller than conventional clarification systems). In the BIOTTOPE project we will use this technology to remove organic micropollutants from biologically treated urban wastewater. To do this we added a step to put in contact wastewater with activated carbon. The evaluation of the effectiveness of this technology will begin in the first quarter of 2013.
