Brief description Water industries in Australia and Japan are aiming at developing compact wastewater treatment and reuse systems. This project will form the basis for a long-term study on coupling a new static floccuator/filter system being developed at UTS and a hanging sponge cubes bioreactor being developed at NUT. A properly designed physico-chemical biological hybrid system will be cost-effective in removing a wide range of pollutants with little maintenance. This study will establish a rational hybrid system through detailed bench and pilot-scale experimentation. It will make the optimum use of the complementary expertise and facilities at NUT and UTS.
