3. Nitrogen and phosphorus content are unknown. But in this kind of wastewater N and P are
more or less absent. Sufficient quantities must be added as nutrient for anaerobic treatment.

4. The chloride content is assumed to below 500 mg/l. Frequently higher values would have
consequences for material choice (type of stainless steel). Unless mentioned otherwise,
stainless steel used in machines and systems is AISI 304 and AISI 304L (1.4301), or
occasionally better.

5. We further assume sufficient inherent anaerobic biodegradability of the organic matter in the
wastewater, as measurable in a lab test, and being at least 75%, as common for such paper
mills. Potentially toxic, harmful or inhibiting products are not present in concentrations that
can disturb a biological system in one way or another.

2. PROCESS DESCRIPTION
=========================

2.1 Pretreatment

The wastewater is pumped over a screen (S100) and into a DAF (Dissolved Air Flotation) unit
(S105).

In the DAF unit, the solids are forced to float by fine air bubbles attaching to the solids. The fine
air bubbles are created by recycling clean effluent, in which air is dissolved under pressure. After
injection into the flotation tank, the pressure release results in formation of fine air bubbles.

After the DAF the wastewater is pumped (P115A/B) into the equalization tank (B101) where
biological hydrolysis/acidification processes take place, resulting in the formation of organic
acids, which causes a serious pH drop (down to 5 7). This equalization tank is gently mixed
(with submerged mixers A101A/B).

A pH correction on the equalization basin outlet (anaerobic reactor inlet) is foreseen. This pH
correction with NaOH is mainly important in the start-up phase, afterwards it will be low or
stand-by, as typical for this type of paper mills. The pH in the feed line to the methane reactor is
continuously measured and, if required (occasionally), adjusted through in-line NaOH dosing in
front of a static mixer. The setpoint of the pH control lies in the neutral to acid range, depending
on the progress of plant start-up and the loading of the plant. In automatic mode, a cascaded pH
control is activated. The setpoint of the influent pH control is dynamically and step-wise (at
preset intervals) adjusted, in function of the pH in the methane reactor effluent (=pH in recycle).
This system allows minimization of NaOH consumption, while safeguarding correct pH
conditions at any time. In case this pH cascade system would be insufficient to keep the pH of
the methane reactor within a pre-set range, the wastewater influent flow will automatically stop,
as long as the pH remains out of the safe range. If in the meantime the equalization basin fills up,
it will overflow and bypass the anaerobic treatment stage.

2.2 Anaerobic treatment (ANUBIX-B)

From the pretreatment the wastewater is pumped (P101A/B) into 3 ANUBIX-B methane
reactors, which is the recommended reactor selected from GWE's program that constitutes the
best system for this wastewater. It is an Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Bed (UASB) type of
system.

Note that GWE has several different types of anaerobic systems, from low rate covered lagoons
to ultra-high rate expanded granular sludge bed (EGSB) systems, built as high tower reactors.
GWEs EGSB system, called ANUBIX-T is ideal for paper mill wastewater with over 5000
mg/l COD, but is not recommended here, since the wastewater is considerable more dilute, and
the ANUBIX-T system loading becomes strongly limited by hydraulic factors. The

REV Date DESCRIPTION BY CHD

ANUBIX-B system is more suitable for dilute wastewaters, and is not or less limited by high
hydraulic loads (inlet flows).

The wastewater enters the reactors D101A/B/C at a constant flow rate through an influent
distribution system at the bottom. The total wastewater flowrate to the reactor is controlled at a
predetermined setpoint. The influent (effluent of equalization basin) is controlled by a flow
control loop which, after start-up has been completed, has its setpoint controlled in cascade by
the level in the equalization basin. In order to assure a constant flow to the methane reactor, a
second control loop is installed on the methane reactor effluent recycle line (P102), to
compensate for flow variations of the influent.

The ANUBIX-B reactor is equipped with a special "3 phase separator" device at the top of the
reactor. After rising through an expanded bed of anaerobic active methanogenic sludge (the so
called "sludge blanket") the wastewater/sludge mixture passes
through an internal 3-phase separator device at the top of the
reactor. This results in a separation of the mixed liquor into
clarified wastewater, biogas and sludge. The absence of any
mechanical agitation allows a natural selection towards heavy
floc and granules of active methanogenic sludge. Effluent
recycle is necessary to have a sufficient mixing in the sludge
blanket and a sufficient upflow velocity to expand the sludge
bed. The internal 3-phase separator comprises a built-in "cross-
flow" type parallel plate separator section, to prevent the loss
of even small methanogenic sludge floc. This highly efficient separator, developed by our
engineers to the present 6
th
generation model, has proven to be very reliable in practice and
allows peak reactor loading rates without significant sludge loss. As sludge loss is effectively
prevented, the separator also allows shorter start-up periods.

Excess sludge can eventually, from time to time, be withdrawn from the bottom of the reactor.
This is not envisaged in the first half year of operation. If no excess sludge is removed, it will
leave the reactor with the effluent, and be removed in the aerobic treatment. This practice is quite
common, and recommended here. However, to obtain the cleanest effluent (lowest TSS, COD,
BOD), regular removal of excess sludge should be applied. The excess sludge can be quite thick
(5-10% DS). It can be land applied (agriculture) or used to start-up new reactors elsewhere. To
facilitate sludge disposal a storage tank can be foreseen (optional on request, but not essential).
Such a tank also provides an emergency stock or a strategic reserve of sludge, to be reused in
case of incidents with the wastewater treatment plant. When storing anaerobic sludge for several
months, the activity drops only slowly.

2.3 Biogas handling

If not reused in the factory, the biogas is flared off. Several types of biogas flares --- elevated
flare with visible flame, or shielded flare with largely hidden flame, or groundflare with
completely enclosed flame --- can be used, according to the requirements (see InfoSheet). A
standard elevated flare (H101) has been foreseen for this project.

We recommend future reuse of the biogas, e.g. in a factory steam boiler. A separate proposal for
the supply of a biogas burner system, together with other equipment like biogas blowers,
instrumentation, etc. can be made, after the characteristics of the factory boiler have been given.
GWE has extensive experience in the utilization of biogas, and many installations in operation
worldwide.

4. SHORT TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
====================================

Note:
- GWE reserves the right to apply technical modifications, resulting from ongoing
improvement activities and technological progress.

GENERAL CONCEPT:

The plant is conceived as a compact concrete block, built above ground, with the methane
reactor and the equalization basin in one block. The available area is unknown by assumed to be
available. The outer appearance is that of a building, and not of a wastewater treatment plant.

Example:


The plant can alternative be conceived as a set of circular concrete or steel tanks, cheaper to
build but resulting in higher cost for connecting piping.

LOCAL REGULATIONS:

Any specific requirements (=beyond standard public domain regulations) from local
authorities, mentioned in the construction and operation permit of the wastewater treatment plant
(WWTP) or of the factory as a whole, if applicable for the WWTP, must be communicated to
GWE in advance. Typical items of importance, to be cleared by the client in advance are:
- emission standards for sound, gaseous components, odor, if specified
- fire fighting and safety requirements
- effluent monitoring obligations (e.g. sampling devices)
- constructional and architectural requirements, e.g. maximum height, distance to boundary,
colors, materials used.
