This application claims priority to PCT Application No. PCT/CN2014/091365, having a filing date of Nov. 18, 2014, based off of Chinese Application No. 201410176164.X, having a filing date of Apr. 28, 2014, the entire contents of which are hereby incorporated by reference.

FIELD OF TECHNOLOGY

The following relates to the advanced treatment of biotreated effluent, specifically to a water reclamation method on the basis of integrated use of magnetic resin adsorption and electrosorption, more specifically to a highly effective and economically favorable water reclamation method on the basis of integrated use of magnetic resin adsorption and electrosorption that can effectively remove the remaining chromaticity, organic pollutants, total phosphorus, total nitrogen and the total salt content.

BACKGROUND

Water shortage has already become a prominent global challenge since we entered the 21st century, an age with accelerating urbanization, overpopulation and increasingly severe environmental pollution. It has become a great concern in China as well. The aggravating crisis of fresh water shortage calls for advanced technologies for treating agricultural wastewater, industrial wastewater and urban domestic sewage, particularly those that can realize deep purification of wastewater by removing most of inorganic salts, organic pollutants, total phosphorus and total nitrogen contained therein so that the high quality of reclaimed water required for multi-purpose utilization can be obtained. Development of these advanced technologies is consistent with sustainable development strategies and beneficial to communities and environmental improvement.

Biological methods are widely adopted in China to treat the agricultural wastewater, industrial wastewater and urban domestic sewage. However, with increasingly stringent standards stipulated by the Chinese government in respect of effluent discharge and reuse, it is necessary for biotreated effluent to undergo an advanced treatment process so that chromaticity, organic pollutants, total phosphorus, total nitrogen and the total salt content contained therein can be further reduced. Needless to say, efficient reuse of reclaimed water will reduce the total quantity of discharged wastewater and is consequently beneficial to the protection and conservation of water resources.

Desalting processes currently available for advanced wastewater treatment mainly include two conventional categories: the membrane process and the thermal process; the membrane desalting process mainly involves techniques such as reverse osmosis and electrodialysis; it presents excellent desalting effect, but it requires high investment and operating cost and bears a limitation that the membrane used in the process is susceptible to contamination; the thermal desalting process mainly involves techniques such as multistage flash evaporation, low-temperature multi-effect distillation, vapor compression distillation, but like the membrane desalting process, it requires high investment and operating cost as well. Another desalting process newly emerged in the field of advanced wastewater treatment is electrosorption, which realizes adsorption of ions by creating double-layer capacitance on the surface of an electrode supplied with a direct voltage less than 2 v. It is a highly effective and economically favorable process characterized by low cost and high efficiency. However, the organic pollutants in the wastewater may cause great damage to the electrosorptive electrode and therefore shorten its service life; besides, organic ions will compete with inorganic ions for adsorptive sites, which consequently lowers down the desalting efficiency of electrosorption. Therefore, when used alone for advanced wastewater treatment, electrosorption cannot guarantee the high-quality reclaimed water being obtained in an efficient and economical way.

A Chinese patent (publication number: CN 102452751A; publication date: May 16, 2012) entitled “A Method for Advanced Desalting and Reuse of Industrial Wastewater” disclosed a method for advanced desalting and reuse of industrial wastewater which is characterized in that the untreated industrial wastewater is sequentially treated in a hardness-reducing unit, a highly effective filtering unit and an electrosorptive desalting unit so that the effluent obtained therefrom can reach the reuse standards. The steps included in the process are (1). hardness reduction, precipitation and neutralization, (2). highly effective filtration; (3). electrosorptive desalting. This method requires no electrodialysis or reverse osmosis membrane devices, and it requires no ion exchange resin either. Besides, the whole system can work stably and without scale formation when the electrical conductivity of the water is higher than 2500 μS/cm. When this method is adopted to treat the biotreated effluent of industrial wastewater with electrical conductivity lower than 4500 μS/cm, the final effluent obtained therefrom can be used as water supply of an industrial recycled water system. It can be used for advanced treatment of chemical wastewater, dyeing wastewater, textile wastewater and refinery wastewater, and presents a variety of advantages such as wide applicability for various types of wastewater, stable operational performance and high desalting efficiency. However, this method is not suited to treat urban domestic sewage, particularly those types of wastewater that contains high concentration of organic pollutants, as the organic pollutants in the wastewater will cause great damage to the electrosorptive electrode and therefore shorten its service life; besides, organic ions contained therein will compete with inorganic ions for adsorptive sites, which consequently lowers down the desalting efficiency of electrosorption. Therefore, when used alone for advanced wastewater treatment, the electrosorption process disclosed in embodiments of the invention cannot guarantee the high-quality reclaimed water being obtained in an efficient and economical way. A new method need to be found for advanced treatment of wastewater with high concentration of organic pollutants, particularly a method simultaneously presenting all advantages of electrosorption and ensuring long service life of the electrode so that the high-quality reclaimed water can be obtained in an efficient and economical way.

SUMMARY

1. Technical Problem to be Solved

In view of the limitations presented in the known art, such as, firstly, the organic pollutants in the wastewater causes great damage to the electrosorptive electrode and therefore shortens its service life; secondly, organic ions contained therein compete with inorganic ions for adsorptive sites and consequently lower down the desalting efficiency of electrosorption; thirdly, when used alone for advanced wastewater treatment, the electrosorption process cannot guarantee the high-quality reclaimed water being obtained in an efficient and economical way, embodiments of the present invention provide a water reclamation method on the basis of integrated use of magnetic resin adsorption and electrosorption; this method is particularly suited to treat wastewater that contains high concentration of organic pollutants as it simultaneously presents all advantages of electrosorption and ensures long service life of the electrode; therefore, the method disclosed in embodiments of the present invention can guarantee the high-quality reclaimed water being obtained in an efficient and economical way.

In order to solve the problems mentioned above, the technical solution adopted in embodiments of the present invention are as follows:

A water reclamation method on the basis of integrated use of magnetic resin adsorption and electrosorption, comprising the following steps:

    • (1) pump the biotreated effluent for further advanced treatment into an reactor that is filled with magnetic resin particles; keep the temperature at 10-60° C. and make sure the contact reaction between magnetic resin and biotreated effluent is sufficiently carried out so that the contents of organic pollutants, chromaticity, total nitrogen and total phosphorus in the original biotreated effluent are effectively reduced;
    • (2) channel the wastewater that has undergone sufficient mixing and reaction mentioned in step (1) into a precipitation tank for precipitation; filter away the precipitated magnetic resin from the wastewater so that the continuous operation of the whole process is guaranteed and the use efficiency of magnetic resin is improved; channel 60%-80% of the precipitated magnetic resin back into the reactor and the rest of the precipitated magnetic resin into a regeneration tank, wherein the precipitated magnetic resin is regenerated and sent back to the reactor thereafter;
    • (3) channel the wastewater that has undergone the filtering process mentioned in step (2) through an electrosorption unit so that the double-layer capacitance formed on the surface of the electrode of the electrosorption unit by operating voltage can be utilized (on the basis of electrostatic adsorption) to adsorb the charged ions contained in the wastewater that has been treated by magnetic resin; the concentration of inorganic salts and organic pollutants contained in the wastewater that has been treated by magnetic resin is further reduced after the electrosorption process; after the completion of the whole process of wastewater treatment, turn off the operating voltage, channel tap water into the electrosorption unit to desorb the electrode under the short circuit condition.

Preferably, the magnetic resin used in said step (1) is magnetic strong base anion exchange resin with a polyacrylic matrix, provided in one Chinese patent (application number: 201010017687.1) applied by Nanjing University.

Preferably, in said step (1), the volume ratio between the magnetic resin and the wastewater is 1:100˜300.

Preferably, in said step (1), the hydraulic retention time of the wastewater within the resin reactor is 10˜60 min, and the sufficient liquid-solid contact is realized through mechanical or pneumatic stirring.

Preferably, the concentration of major quality indicators in said original biotreated effluent is: CODcr lower than 150 ppm, chromaticity lower than 100° and the total salt lower than 5000 ppm.

Magnetic resin adsorption is a well-developed process for advanced wastewater treatment, as magnetic resin can on the one hand effectively remove various organic substances and chromaticity in the biotreated effluent through adsorption, and on the other hand remove inorganic substances through ion exchange; when used for advanced wastewater treatment, it presents such advantages as high concentration ratio, low operating cost and convenient operation procedure. However, how to integrate magnetic resin adsorption with electrosorption, namely, how to overcome their respective limitations and make them work synergistically is a constant challenge to those who are skilled in the art. In embodiments of the present invention, magnetic resin is firstly utilized to reduce the quantity of organic substances in the biotreated effluent so that the damage caused by the organic pollutants to the electrosorptive electrode is reduced and the desalting efficiency is enhanced; meanwhile, the adoption of the electrosorption process can also effectively eliminate the inorganic substances generated in the magnetic resin adsorption process and remaining in the effluent thereafter; besides, in comparison with other processes for advanced wastewater treatment such as coagulation, nanofiltration and reverse osmosis, the process integrating magnetic resin adsorption and electrosorption as is disclosed in embodiments of the present invention is characterized by lower equipment investment and operating cost. Therefore, this new method has a broad application prospect. The desirable synergistic effect obtained by the method disclosed in embodiments of the present invention is unpredictable to those skilled in the art; therefore it makes substantial progress in the field of advanced wastewater treatment. Particularly, when utilized to treat the wastewater that has been previously treated by the magnetic resin prepared through the method disclosed in the Chinese patent 201010017687.1 (application number), the electrode that is made from activated carbon, carbon black and polytetrafluoroethylene in the ratio of 5˜16:2˜3:2 can raise the efficiency of the whole electrosorption process by more than 20%, and its service life also increases more than 2 times as its performance against contamination caused by organic or inorganic salts is greatly enhanced in comparison with those conventional eletrosorptive electrodes.

The mixed fluid of precipitated resin and water is channeled out from the bottom of the precipitation tank and flows at the rate of 40 L/h into a buffer tank, wherefrom 70% of the mixed fluid is pumped back into the reactor and the rest 30% flows into a regeneration tank. The deactivated magnetic resin is regenerated in the regeneration tank with 15% (by mass) NaCl solution for 30 min, and then is sent back to the resin storage tank; the desorption liquid generated therein is separately disposed of. After being treated by the integrated process disclosed in embodiments of the present invention, the water quality is greatly improved as major quality indicators are CODcr 40 mg/L, chromaticity 20°, total phosphorus 1.5 mg/L, total nitrogen 16 mg/L, the total salt content 80 mg/L respectively.
