Abstract:

The Department of Defense facilities generate thousands of tons of oily sludge annually. The Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center NFESC was tasked to conduct bench and pilot-scale testing of oily sludge biodegradation. In collaboration with PWC Pearl Harbor, NFESC designed, installed and operated a 10,000 gallon sequencing batch reactor SBR for the on-site degradation of oily sludge. Test results demonstrate that on-site biological treatment is technically and economically feasible and that a sequencing batch reactor is easily assembled on site using off-the-shelf components and surplus tanks. The Users Data Package UDP addresses the criteria to qualify and SBR treatment system. The factors that need to be assessed prior to the procurement and installation of a SBR treatment system include economic feasibility, design considerations, regulatory requirements, sludge generation rates, sludge transporting requirements, and site applicability. This document also contains a sample economic analysis, sample statement of work SOW, and applicable AutoCAD drawings. This time estimate for system installation from initial design to system operation is typically 20 months.
