Biological wastewater processes for petrochemical

by Biowater Technology     based in Cumberland, RHODE ISLAND (USA)

This wastewater typically contains a lower biochemical to chemical oxygen demand.  We determine biodegradability of each waste stream and the presence of toxic or inhibitory compounds. 

Waste water respirometry solutions for process optimisation

by Strathkelvin Instruments Ltd.     based in Motherwell, UNITED KINGDOM

Respiration rate of activated sludge has been recognised as a key controlling element in the modelling of process control, by the International Water Association Task Group. Actual respiration rate of the sludge in the aeration tanks, as well as the endogenous and maximum respiration rates are variables that indicate the rate of BOD removal and aeration requirements. The maximum respiration rate is also closely linked to the Critical Oxygen Concentration point, that is, the point at which diffusion over the bacterial cell walls ceases and therefore biodegradation is significantly compromised.

Energy and Fuels from Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)

by Advanced Plasma Power (APP)     based in Swindon, UNITED KINGDOM

Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), which includes household waste, is the residual waste put into a black bin bag or wheelie bin. MSW contains a mixture of recyclable, organic, inorganic and biodegradable materials. We recover as many recyclable materials as possible before drying and shredding the remainder to make a Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) for the process. Our energy from waste process, Gasplasma®, transforms the RDF into a clean hydrogen-rich synthesis gas (syngas).

Ozone generators for industrial application

by Absolute Systems Inc.     based in Edmonton, ALBERTA (CANADA)

Disinfection of industrial and chemical freshwater, process water and cooling water. Disinfection, detoxification, decolouration and deoderization of industrial wastewater and improvement of its biodegradability. Oxidation of industrial off gasses. Chemical Oxidation.

Trivol 102 Regeneration

by Ameret LLC     based in Overland Park, MISSOURI (USA)

Trivol 102 Regeneration is a natural based absorbent that will soak up all hydrocarbon spills on land. We have super charged our product with millions of microbes that speed up the biodegradation process. Another special additive helps to naturally fertilize the soil to stimulate plant growth and further remediate the affected area. Trivol 102 Regeneration can be added to Trivol 101 Containment after it has been skimmed from water to dry ground.

Membrane filtration systems for biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry

by GEA Filtration     based in Hudson, WISCONSIN (USA)

GEA Filtration is experienced in processing a wide range of products on a commercial basis and by testing products at the plant site or in our pilot plant testing facility. Definition of the Industrial Biotech and Environmental Biotech Sector. This sector uses living organisms to manufacture a variety of products that result in the reduction of pollution, resource consumption and waste. Typical products include bioethanol, industrial enzymes, biological fuel cells, enzymes for bioremediation, biodegradable plastics and much more.

Microbial Solutions for Soil Bioremediation

by Microbial Discovery Group (MDG)     based in Franklin, WISCONSIN (USA)

The remediation of soils, sludge, and water require more than just the addition of packaged microbes.  Microbial Discovery Group can assist you in applying a total systems approach to soil bioremediation. Here in the US, sometimes we take for granted how precious it is to have non-contaminated soils and water. In many countries, industrial pollution has destroyed the soil and water ecosystems leading to toxic concerns and poor health. We at Microbial Discovery Group believe the remediation of soils, sludge and water require more than just the addition of packaged microbes. Applying a total systems approach to soil and water remediation has to be the primary focus of your bioaugmentation program. We are here to help you in that process. Lucky for us, many of the recalcitrant pollutants in the environment will serve as food sources to microbes.  By taking advantage of using natural processes to clean up contaminated sites, MDG provides solutions by speeding up the biodegradation of harmful chemicals. By rebalancing the system with the proper microbial processes, chemical breakdown will go from years to weeks.  Let MDG work with you to start cleaning up the world, one site at a time.

In-Situ Soil & Groundwater Remediation

by USP Technologies     based in Atlanta, GEORGIA (US) (USA)

The use of H2O2 to chemically oxidize the contaminants into mineralized products (CO2 , salts, and readily biodegradable organic fragments) offers a number of advantages over these current treatment methods. Benefits of Soil Decontamination by Chemical Oxidation: The reagent used (H2O2) is inexpensive, readily available, and has as its reaction products water and oxygen; The chemistry of the process (Fenton's Reagent) has been known for over 50 years and its applicability to a wide variety of contaminants is well documented; The process is easily applied and controlled; The treatment occurs rapidly, lasting from a few hours to a few weeks; The process produces no by-product wastestreams, and can be tuned for the degree of contaminant removal desired. This allows it to be used synergistically with other technologies such as biotreatment or soil washing.

Microbial formulations for industrial sector

by Bioscience, Inc.     based in Allentown, PENNSYLVANIA (USA)

MICROCAT microbial formulations from Bioscience, Inc., are blends of specialized, naturally occurring microbes and other ingredients that work together to solve the problems associated with wastewater treatment from heavy process industries. By augmenting existing microbial populations, MICROCAT products naturally enhance the biodegradation of wastewater from refineries, pulp mills, chemical plants, steel mills and textile plants. When properly applied as recommended by Bioscience’s team of seasoned professionals, MICROCAT bioaugmentation formulas can result in more stable and efficient wastewater treatment plant operation and better overall effluent quality for their difficult-to-treat wastewaters.

Solutions for the aerobic bioremediation

by The BioSolve Company     based in Lexington, MASSACHUSETTS (USA)

BioSolve Pinkwater is used to accelerate natural bioremediation of contaminated soil either on site through surface application or on land farms through application to biopiles. When Pinkwater solution is sprayed onto and aggressively mixed into contaminated soil, hydrocarbons come in contact with the strongly “lipophilic” (oil loving) surfactant. Mimicking the process by which bacteria make hydrocarbons digestible, the surfactants “solubilize” contaminates, pulling them into an aqueous phase. This greatly enhances “bioavailability” for naturally occurring hydrocarbon degrader bacteria. Bacteria are able to more rapidly consume the contaminating oil/fuel, thereby dramatically accelerating the biodegradation process.

Wastewater treatment solutions for anaerobic sludge digestion sector

by QM Environmental Services Ltd.     based in The Hague, NETHERLANDS

Anaerobic digestion is a series of processes in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen, used for industrial or domestic purposes to manage waste and/or to release energy. It is widely used as part of the process to treat wastewater, like Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) reactors. As part of an integrated waste management system, anaerobic digestion reduces the emission of landfill gas into the atmosphere. Anaerobic digestion is widely used as a renewable energy source because the process produces a methane and carbon dioxide rich biogas suitable for energy production, helping to replace fossil fuels. The nutrient-rich digestate which is also produced can be used as fertilizer. The digestion process begins with bacterial hydrolysis of the input materials in order to break down insoluble organic polymers such as carbohydrates and make them available for other bacteria. Acidogenic bacteria then convert the sugars and amino acids into carbon dioxide, hydrogen, ammonia, and organic acids. Acetogenic bacteria then convert these resulting organic acids into acetic acid, along with additional ammonia, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide. Finally, methanogens convert these products to methane and carbon dioxide.
