ATAD

ATAD | ATAD stands for Autothermal Thermophilic Aerobic DigestionWHAT IS AN ATAD? ATAD stands for Autothermal Thermophilic Aerobic Digestion. The ATAD process, orginially developed in Europe, can be simply defined as liquid composting. Thickened material, to ensure a minimum organic strength for heat production, is fed to the ATAD unit.

The unique ThermAer Process System ATAD - ThermAer - offers a complete solution. The process yields a Class A, high quality pathogen-free product giving WWTPs a range of final biosolid management options.

The ATAD process complies with the EPA requirements for time and temperature and operates on a draw and fill cycle. Hold times based on time and temperature range from 4-20 hours. ATADs have been used in the US almost exclusively to digest TWAS, thickened above 4% TS.

Clean Water Act

E P A  easing permitting process

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler today signed new rules that will streamline the permitting process for pipelines and other infrastructure projects under the Clean Water Act. The rules follow an August proposal to limit the reasons for rejecting permits and give states a one-year maximum to decide on permit applications.

Beneficial Use of

Biosolids Award

The installation of the ATAD system has mitigated several key risk factors associated with traditional composting and/or landfilling activities including vector attraction, contaminated runoff, and unwanted odor. The end product is essentially neutralized of pathogenic and odorous organic content, reducing the likelihood of vector attraction. 

One benefit of the ATAD process is that it provides more complete digestion of the incoming sludges, converting more of the influent BOD loading and reducing the amount of solids to be dried and hauled from the plant. 

A second benefit of the ATAD process is the nitrification/denitrification process inherent to the ATAD technology, which converts ammonia and nitrogen very efficiently.  

Over the past 10 years, the system has proven itself to be reliable and accurate in terms of operation, employing a sophisticated computer system to control the entire process and requiring little operator input from start to finished product.
