It is estimated that 50-90 percent of the power cost for wastewater treatment is for aeration. Fine pore diffusion presents the opportunity to significantly reduce these costs due to its oxygen transfer efficiency. The report provides the latest information on performance potential, requirements and costs for installation in new municipal wastewater treatment plants as well as retrofitting existing facilities, and describes the requirements for an operation and maintenance program. Although not a design manual, the document will assist practicing engineers in the selection, specification, design, and control of fine pore aeration systems.
