Application of Bioaugmentation for quick restoration of microbial activity in a Cheese WWTP
The use of Bioaugmentation has been shown to be a very effective method of restoring activity in a wastwater treatment plant treating the effluent from cheese production. The plant had lost activity and in this case activity was restored without removing the existing dead biomass. This presented a considerable challenge and resulted in considerable savings for the client since the dead sludge didn't have to be taken off site for disposal. This process resulted in a more sustainable methodology compared to the standard approach which would entail transporting large volumes of dead biomass off site for special disposal.
