Application of air nanobubbles in washing sewage of a Soft drink bottling plant [Aplicación de nanoburbujas de aire en aguas residuales de lavado de una Embotelladora de Bebidas Carbonatadas]

Thalia Nuñez, Jhonny Valverde Flores


The research’s purpose was to apply air nanobubbles in washing sewage of a soft drink bottling plant. The methodology used was pre-experimental and applied. The air nanobubbles were applied in the 3 samples of 20 liters of washing sewage of a Soft drink bottling plant, from which 2 samples were extracted: one at 45 minutes and another at 90 minutes after starting treatment. The results showed that air nanobubbles reduced the concentration of: conductivity by 8.4% (from 2500 mS/cm to 2290 mS/cm), turbidity by 71.97% (from 152 NTU to 42.6 NTU), BOD5 by 99.89% (from 1892.7 mg/L to 1.9 mg/L) and COD in 99.13% (from 3681 mg/L to 32 mg/L).
