Vacuum Bubble Technology:
A Brief History
In the early 1970s, Vacuum Bubble Technology was first used in livestock production. The elimination of odor and sludge in manure storage pits and lagoons along with the reduction of corrosive gases in animal confinement buildings through the use of VBT became a major contributor to the development of environmentally sound agriculture.
By the 1990s, Vacuum Bubble Technology had been adapted to improve the operation of home septic tanks. Addition of the Vacuum Bubble Technology Aerator to an existing or new home septic tank showed that a clear, odorless effluent was produced, and there was a reduction in the need for regular sludge pumping. It was also found that the use of VBT extended the life of drain fields. A further refinement of the Vacuum Bubble Technology Aerator was the development of a retrofit kit for installation in failed aerobic treatment units.
All kitchen waste from restaurants is held in underground grease traps and the VBT was shown to reduce costs through the less frequent need for grease trap pumping. Customers and restaurant staff were also pleased by the elimination of offensive grease trap odors. Cleaner grease trap effluent also meant less clogging and fewer backups in kitchen drains.
The same principles that made Vacuum Bubble Technology so effective in livestock production were also found to be applicable to large commercial users in many industrial applications. Industrial processes which had foul odors due to an accumulation of anaerobic bacteria were improved by the Vacuum Bubble Technology Aerator. Operating costs relating to disposal of unintended organic sludge accumulation were significantly reduced or, as in some cases, eliminated.
In 2001, with the colaboration of Advanced Aeration International (AAI) and the Space Alliance Technology Outreach Program (SATOP) the technology was further developed in the aquaculture environment. The use of VBT™ demonstrated increased survival rates and increased yields of fish in breeding ponds.
The measure of its success lies in the ever-growing network of Licensed Technology Providers (LTP) in these markets. See Business Opportunities.
AA's LTPs operate in -
- Specific Market Segments
- In a specific Territory and
- Serving a specific Application
Each Market has two or more Applications and each Application has a set of clearly defined Goals which aeration must address. A goal of aeration common to all Markets is the elimination of odors. VBT achieves this, and additional goals, by supporting aerobic bacterial metabolism as opposed to the more common, and inefficient, odor producing anaerobic consumption of organic waste.
Below is a table showing the markets within which AA is currently operating through the LTP network. The table illustrates the versatility of VBT™ in meeting regulatory, environmental, and social needs within wastewater management.
