ESD Waste2Water, Inc. is proud to have partnered with a major utility provider on an environmental cleanup project involving dredging contaminated silt from a small section of New Bedford Harbor, Massachusetts. The harbor is contaminated with a byproduct consisting primarily of coal tar. New Bedford is only one city, among thousands of other locations in the US, which used Manufactured Gas Plants (MGP) in the distant past. From the late 1800's to about the 1950’s, all natural gas used for heating in the Northeast came from these plants. Coal was essentially "cooked" and the off-gas was used as a natural gas. Due to the use of today’s form of natural gas, which is extracted from deep wells, thousands of MGP plants have closed since the 1970’s. Unfortunately, most have been left with environmental issues.
ESD Waste2Water developed a customized Tube Settler Clarifier which is a component of the system treating the decant water from the dredged sludge and silt. Tube settlers use multiple tubular channels, sloped at a 60°angle, to form an increased effective settling area. The Tube Settler Clarifier is used for industrial and municipal wastewater and water treatment for removal of suspended solids by gravity separation.
