High speed digestion of organic waste produces effluent that limits harmful discharges to the environment
Effective wastewater treatment is critical to the environment and ultimately, human health. In industrialized countries, tighter discharge limits, reduced operating and capital costs are key drivers. In developing nations, inexpensive and effective treatment solutions are in-demand particularly for collected yet untreated sewage.
BiOWiSHTM technology helps industries and governments leapfrog conventional, costly and capital intensive treatment technologies. The net results are multi-fold: meet regulatory discharge requirements, reduce operating and capital costs, improve aeration efficiency and reduce odors.
Wastewater Treatment Technology
Enhancing the rate of biochemical reactions
BiOWiSHTM technology is a highly-refined, proprietary fermentation process that creates a composite biocatalyst from a unique blend of microorganisms, enzymes, and co-factors. This composite biocatalyst coexist with existing wastewater biology to enhance the rate of biochemical reactions in wastewater treatment plants, enabling the process to work faster and more efficiently than native biological organisms alone.
The technology rapidly accelerates the rate of oxidation of pollutants, making it beneficial for wastewater and water treatment. The technology fits into a relatively new scientific field called bioaugmentation that is being used across a number of wastewater treatment plants. Bioaugmentation presents a quick and cost effective way to solve a number of wastewater treatment problems that would traditionally be solved with expensive capital enhancements
Unique to BiOWiSHTM technology is the ability to adapt to new substrates due to changes in flow or industrial loading. A number of alternate microbial and enzymatic products rely on engineered formulations specific to a waste stream. These products require formulation and trial to obtain the most effective result and can be rendered ineffective if the substrate changes.
Additionally, traditional chemical treatments only impact the insoluble component of Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD). It is often necessary to feed a chemical oxidant, such as Hydrogen Peroxide or Ferric Chloride to reduce soluble BOD. BiOWiSHTM technology treats both the soluble and insoluble portions of BOD, reducing polymer usage, hauling fees and dangerous chemical handling.
