Surfactants, such as laundry and dishwasher detergents, personal care products, and disinfectants, are persistent in municipal and industrial waste streams and pose a significant challenge for wastewater treatment plants.
Goleta Sanitary District in Goleta, California, faced significant challenges with their plant’s efficiency as they were nearing design BOD/TSS loading. Due to drought and extreme water conservation in California, their influent concentrations were very high. Even though they eliminated contributions from industrial users in 2016 when they became aware of the impacts of surfactants, the 2020 pandemic increased surfactant loading on the facility. Learn how nanobubbles helped Goleta improve plant efficiency, reduce costs and more.
