The goal of this project was to integrate solar, biological, and nano technologies into wastewater treatment concept to create a novel small-scale wastewater treatment system that can significantly reduce mass of the wastewater, and simultaneously generate potable water for FOBs. Combining solar energy collection and biological methane generation provides sufficient and stable energy for small size wastewater treatment operations fixed film anaerobic digestion, water reclamation, and nano-filtration of water purification, and overcomes the disadvantages of individual technologies such as unsteady energy flow for solar power generation, low efficiency of conventional anaerobic digestion, and higher energy requirement of water purification.
