Description

One of the major environmental concerns since the industrial revolution has been the byproduct of wastewater from production. Other forms of wastewater come from basic human use, agriculture, and domestic activities. Industrial wastewater can contain a large range of contaminants due to the variety of industries present today. Examples of these contaminants include heavy metals, plastics, oils, radioactive waste, and other suspended solids. Most of this wastewater enters sewage systems that transport it to treatment plants before being reintroduced to the environment. The treatment plants use techniques such as flocculation and settling to remove the contaminants. It is a relatively effective process, but there is still more that can be done. Currently, Israel is leading the way in wastewater remediation. This project will look more closely at the challenges and successes Israel has experienced and report an apt treatment process for the restoration of industrial wastewater into a natural stream. This project will be completed using combined efforts and perspectives from students at the University of San Diego and the Azrieli College of Engineering.
