Title
Biological manganese removal from potable water using trickling filters
Abstract

Two pilot-scale trickling filters were constructed and tested for manganese removal from potable water, using different fractions of silicic gravel as support media (mono- and multilayer filter). Manganese oxidation in drinking water was found to be cause by both biological oxidation and heterogeneous catalytic paths. Mixed culture populations were used to inoculate the trickling filters and the feed manganese concentrations and volumetric flow rates (VFRs) were between 0.6–2.0 mg/l and 500–2000 ml/min, respectively. The monolayer filter was flooded for high VFRs, and it was very effective for all conditions tested (100% removal efficiency, up to 2850 mg Mn/day). The multilayer filter was less effective for high manganese concentrations but it could remove up to 3250 mg Mn/day. A new mathematical model was developed assuming heterogeneous autocatalytic and biological as the main oxidation manganese paths. First order kinetics was used to describe the heterogeneous catalytic oxidation, while Monod-type kinetics was used to describe the net biological manganese oxidation. The simplicity of the pilot-scale design, the lack of need for an external mechanical aeration source and the ability to predict operation of the system offers a very attractive solution for manganese removal from potable water.
