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.

Enhanced anaerobic biodegradation for the soil and groundwater industry

by REGENESIS     based in San Clemente, CALIFORNIA (USA)

Enhanced anaerobic biodegradation is the practice of adding hydrogen (an electron donor) to groundwater and/or soil to increase the number and vitality of indigenous microorganisms performing anaerobic bioremediation (reductive dechlorination) on any anaerobically degradable compound or chlorinated contaminant. The most commonly targeted chlorinated groundwater contaminants are primarily used in industry as degreasing agents and include: Perchloroethylene (PCE), Trichloroethylene (TCE), Dichloroethylene (DCE), Vinyl Chloride (VC).

Other anaerobically degradable compounds include: carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, methylene chloride, certain pesticides/herbicides, perchlorate, nitrate, nitroaromatic explosives (TNT, RDX), dyes and chlorofluorocarbons (CFC’s).

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.

Microbial testing in upstream oil & gas industry

by LuminUltra Technologies Ltd.     based in Fredericton, NEW BRUNSWICK (CANADA)

On-the-spot measurement of total microorganisms! Microbial growth can be a significant nuisance in the upstream oil and gas sector. Well drilling, completion and stimulation activities can introduce microbes into a producing formation. Microbes found in the near well bore of producing wells can impede inflow, corrode tubulars and pumps and sour the formation. At the surface, production problems associated with microbial infection include corrosion and fouling of wellheads, pipelines, heater treaters, separators and storage tanks and bullets. The best solution to these problems is early detection and treatment.

Oxygen Monitoring from Aerobic and Anaerobic for Biodegradation Assessments

by Respirometer Systems and Applications, LLC     based in Springdale, ARKANSAS (USA)

Biodegradation tests involve testing samples in response to various parameters: dilution, nutrient addition, pH, temperature, and others. The pattern of oxygen uptake in aerobic tests; nitrogen gas production in anoxic denitrification tests; methane production in methanogenic tests; hydrogen production during glycolysis; and carbon dioxide production during fermentation reactions gives a measure of the rate and extent of biodegradation of the organic constituents of the test sample. 

Cooling & Drinkingwater: ATP monitoring of biomass growth in waters

by microLAN On-line Biomonitoring Systems     based in Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS

Monitoring Biomass in (Cooling Tower) Waters through ATP monitoring

The TOXcontrol can be used for ATP monitoring. Currently our company is doing research for further developments for this application on the TOXcontrol.

Monitoring the microbial population of cooling towers is necessary in order to maintain the proper operation of the system. Conventional methods for monitoring microbial populations work by culturing microorganisms, a time-consuming procedure that requires days or even weeks of incubation before the results are known. Biofouling can be well-advanced before treatment begins. In addition, it is believed that this technique does not detect the full range of microbial life present in cooling systems.

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.

Soil and Groundwater treatment solutions for bioremediation industry

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

Today bioremediation is successfully used as soil– and groundwater remediation technology. Many bioremediation systems, both in-situ as ex-situ techniques, usually result in considerable cost savings. Since the beginning of the 1980’s both in-situ and ex-situ bioremediation projects have been successfully completed worldwide through the use of preselected and adapted bacteria. QM Environmental Services supplies a range of microbial, bioactivator and nutrient products and gas delivery systems for the use in both aerobic and anaerobic bioremediation programs. Most common contaminants ranging from aliphatic hydrocarbons such as petroleum, lubrication oils, aromatic compounds like benzene and toluene to chlorinated solvents can be treated with these products.

Industrial water Ammonia & Arsenic removal from water

by PuriTech Ltd     based in Herentals, BELGIUM

Nitrogen is a nutrient essential to all forms of life as a basic building block of plant and animal protein. Nevertheless, too much of it can be toxic. The processes used for the removal of ammonium ions from drinking waters include ion exchange. PuriTech`s ION-IX system can be broken up into 4 distinctive zones with each zone operating continuously. The resin is initially loaded with the Ammonia ions (and partially calcium and magnesium)in the adsorption zone. As the ION-IX multi-port valve rotates, the resin that has been saturated with Ammonia ions (and some calcium and magnesium ions)moves into a one-bed displacement zone with softened water to ensure hard water does not cause precipitation within the multi port valve.

Carbon Dioxide Sensing for Controlled Environment Horticulture

by Edinburgh Instruments Ltd     based in Livingston, UNITED KINGDOM

Introduction: Controlled Environment Horticulture is a vast topic, and has been utilised in varying forms for centuries. Excavations of the city of Pompeii showed remains of early greenhouses dating back to AD79; and the modern greenhouses are thought to originate in the thirteenth century in Italy. Most people recognise the use of greenhouses for growing flowers and vegetables, whether in their own garden, at garden centres or on a commercial basis. Indeed most people will be conversant with irrigation systems that are used to supply water to such greenhouses and the use of heaters to control the temperature and thereby extend the growing season.
