Abstract:

The report covers research and development efforts which have demonstrated the feasibility of an advanced photochemical waste treatment system. A full scale system for a 200 man vessel has been fabricated and tested. Data is presented on a 200 man Navy prototype system capable of treating 5,200 gal per day of sewage. Effluent from the sewage has been treated to a level of suspended solids under 80 mg1, BODunder 50 mg1, and a coliform bacteria count near zero. A parallel demonstration program was conducted with a catalyst in place of the UV cell. Because of the major reduction in system size, complexity, and power consumption with the catalyst system, it was preferred.
