The plant, in a city of about 100,000 people, wanted to significantly reduce its solids production by at least 50 percent, from 740 ton/year to 370 ton/year. Besides reducing the costs of hauling biosolids to a disposal facility, the Cannibal system can reduce the plant’s power and labor costs from aerobic digestion and dewatering systems.
The treatment process at the plant will be as follows: the wastewater influent will undergo primary treatment, then biological treatment, secondary clarification and filtration. Mixed liquor from the secondary clarification stage will be sent to the Cannibal solids separation system. Non-degradable trash and inert material will be separated from the biological solids and disposed of, and the screened mixed liquor will be either recycled to the main biological treatment stage or sent to the biological interchange tank. The plant is designed to treat a flow rate of 11,000 cubic meters per day. Siemens, which was awarded the contract for the Cannibal system in February 2007, also provided a control system for the process.
Cannibal is a trademark of Siemens and/or its affiliates in some countries.

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
