Hybrid Adsorption and Biological Treatment systems (HABiTs) for Onsite Wastewater Treatment
Although conventional septic systems effectively reduce organics and pathogens in wastewater, there is limited removal of nitrogen. Passive nitrogen treatment systems have been developed to combat this problem. This presentation will explain the operation, usefulness, and public health benefits of Hybrid Adsorption and Biological treatment systems (HABiTs), which acheive nitrogen effluent concentrations of less than 3 mg/L yet highlight the aspects that make onsite systems attractive to owners: simplicity, low maintenance, low energy and low cost.
