1 On-site greywater treatment and reuse applications, quality requirements, treatment solutions 5th June 2013 Beirut, Lebanon

2 I am… Markus Sellner Degreed engineer of Environmental protection Living in Göttingen / Germany Productmanager for decentralised water management Employeed at DEHOUST since April 2008

3 1. What is on-site greywater reuse?

4 Definitions Process water = water with different quality characteristics than drinking water serving commercial, industrial, agriculatural or similiar purposes (DIN 4046). Greywater = part of the household wastwater without faecal matter and urine (blackwater). Greywater is the drain from bath tubs, shower trays, washbasins and washing machines. It may also contain high-polluted kitchen wastewater. (British standard :2010) 1. What is on-site greywater reuse?

5 General flow schematic decentralised greywater treatment system 1. What is on-site greywater reuse?

6 Ideal building types 1. What is on-site greywater reuse?

7 Distribution of water consumption in residential buildings saving potential around 50 % Drinking water Treated greywater 38 % body care 2 % drinking/cooking 7 % dish washing 33 % toilet 13 % laundry 5 % others 2 % garden irrigation 1. What is on-site greywater reuse?

8 Typical water consumption in buildings source building type body care* [L/p*d] toilet [L/p*d] washing machine [L/p*d] Green irrigation residential building Depending on green area 60 – 200 L/m²*a hotel complex office building sports facility Existing information sheets and guidelines just give estimations/recommendations fbr information sheet H201 British Standard DIN about rainwater harvesting systems *showers, bath tubs, handwash basins L = litre; p = person; d = day; m² = squarmeter; a = year Greywater Process water 1. What is on-site greywater reuse?

9 2. Quality requirements for reuse

10 Code of practice for general requirements hygienical / microbiological safe colorless and clear particle free free from unpleasant odour emission British Standard : 2011 about greywater reuse 2. Quality requirements for reuse EU bathing water guideline 2006/7/EC DIN hygienic concerns of irrigation water

11 hygienical / microbiological safe colorless and clear particle free free from unpleasant odour emission British Standard : 2011 about greywater reuse 2. Quality requirements for reuse comparing German limits about coliform bacteria: raw milk: cfu/100 mL soft cheese: cfu/g minced meat: cfu/g Code of practice of general requirements EU bathing water guideline 2006/7/EC DIN hygienic concerns of irrigation water

12 3. Treatment technique

13 General flow chart

14 3. Treatment technique combination of aerobic biological sludge treatment and external submerged membrane filtration system. Ultrafiltration flatsheet membranes separating activated sludge from biologically treated wastewater.

15 3. Treatment technique state of the art in Europe exceeding all guidelines 100% barrier for sludge/particles 99,9% barrier for germs absolut clear water small footprint eco-friendly without chemicals packaged system by system manufacturer high investment costs maintenance costs

16 3. Treatment technique combination of aerobic biological sludge treatment and UV-desinfection batches: fill => react/aeration => settle => decant

17 3. Treatment technique with UV-desinfection state of the art in Europe exceeding all guidelines 99,9% barrier for germs eco-friendly without chemicals low maintenance costs low energy consumption not guaranteed clear water (e.g. foam) UV-efficiency depends on biological efficiency large footprint

18 3. Treatment technique constructed wetlands with additional desinfection combined treatment systems (sandfilter, carbon-filter, chlorine station) multi-layer-filters  not common and proven in long-term-operation  insufficient biological treatment => odour, foam,…  mixed technology– no packaged and tested units

19 4. LEED-Certification

20 110 possible points Simple certificate: 40 – 49 Points Platinum certificate: 80 Points or higher 4. LEED-Certification

21 110 possible points Simple certificate: 40 – 49 Points Platinum certificate: 80 Points or higher 4. LEED-Certification

22 5. Audiance Discussion Time for questions

23 Thank you for your attention !
