Waste Water Treatment

Treating wastewater can sometimes be a major challenge. Operators of industrial wastewater systems probably face some of the greatest challenges due to the instability in the waste stream. Furthermore, chemical treatment and mechanical separation is often employed in industrial treatment.

Although in many systems chemical treatment and mechanical separation is essential (i.e. pH reduction to precipitate metals, mechanical screeners to remove heavy solids, etc.), some instances occur when these types of treatments create a secondary waste stream that is larger than necessary. In certain cases, the secondary waste stream can be significantly reduced or eliminated because the target contaminate can easily be degraded biologically. This results in conversion of the contaminant [in an aerobic environment] to biomass (more bacterial cells), carbon dioxide and water. The degradability of the contaminant will determine the reduction level of the secondary waste stream.

Wastewater generators can experience significant cost savings through reduced disposal costs by reducing secondary waste streams.

A common issue with some industrial treatment plants is meeting local wastewater regulations. Under proper conditions, microbial inoculation can significantly enhance the performance of industrial treatment systems. This can be achieved because microorganisms specific to the target contaminant can be injected to ensure a microbial population is present that can efficiently degrade the compound.
