Experiments of sodium nitrate liquid waste treatment by biological method

Takahashi, Kuniaki ; Meguro, Yoshihiro ; Kawato, Yoshimi; Kuroda, Kazuhiko*; Ogawa, Naoki*

Low level liquid waste discharged from a Reprocessing Facility includes sodium nitrate. In the case that it is directly solidified with cement and so on and then the solidified waste are disposed under the ground, sodium nitrate soaks into the environment through underground water layer. We planned to apply the biological treatment system that many ordinary industrial plants are running in the field of waste water treatment to reduce nitrate. We carried out degradation experiments of nitrate for 4wt% sodium nitrate solution by biological method. To solve the assignments that biological treatment technology has, we tested and obtained the results as shown below; (1) The amount of sludge ash could be cut down a tenth as much as usual. The disposal cost reduction of secondary waste is just in sight. (2) Treatment performance could be improved up to 7 kg-N/m$$^{3}$$/d from 4 kg-N/m$$^{3}$$/d. It could be expected the more compact system by improvement of the membrane set into the biological treatment tanks.
