The sewage treatment bio-culture medium is a carefully prepared blend of microorganisms, macro/micronutrients, and bacteria that can thrive at temperatures ranging from 5 to 55 degrees Celsius.
As soon as these beneficial bacteria are introduced into a septic system, they begin secreting enzymes that break down and disintegrate feces, urine, toilet paper, grease, fats, food scraps, detergents, and other organic wastes. These environmentally friendly bacteria multiply rapidly and colonize the septic system, restoring its biological health and efficiency.
Why use bioculture in wastewater treatment?
1. Reduces BOD, COD, and Suspended solids in industrial wastewater treatment effluent, resulting in faster recovery time after disturbances;
2. Creates less sludge than alternative solutions;
3. Reduces the efficiency of nitrate and ammonia;
4. Changes in Biomass Dynamics;
5. Complies with PCB requirements;
6. Promotes the formation of flocs;
7. MLSS increase;
8. Improves floc settling and prevents sludge thickening to increase the capacity of municipal, and industrial wastewater treatment systems;
9. Improves waste decomposition of specific target substances;
10. Reduces sludge build-up by breaking down fat and grease build-up;
11. Odour management is improved by natural organic acid oxidation;
12. Lowers the amount of suspended solids and complex material in bottom sludge;
13. Removes hydrogen sulfide gas and its odour;
14. Aids in waste degradation.
Microbes in anaerobic digesters in bio culture at wastewater treatment plants
Many species are present only because they are mixed in with the feed, such as primary sludge or surplus-activated sludge, and are thus dormant. However, the active key anaerobic microbes are less well-studied, than the activated sludge microbes.
Bacteria in bio culture (Aerobic, Anaerobic, and Facultative)
Bacteria make up 95% of the microorganisms in wastewater. They are single-celled microorganisms, classified according to their response to oxygen.
Aerobic bacteria use mechanically added oxygen to break down wastewater contaminants, and convert them into energy. This energy is used by bacteria to grow and reproduce.
Anaerobic bacteria get oxygen from their food. Methane gas is produced by anaerobic bacteria as they break down sludge. This methane gas can be used as a biogas alternative energy source, to power the wastewater treatment process. Anaerobic bacteria can also be used to reduce phosphorus levels in effluent.
Although, facultative bacteria prefer oxygen, they can switch between aerobic and anaerobic forms, in response to their surroundings.
Biocultural microorganisms are the workhorses of wastewater treatment systems and anaerobic digesters, where they remove pollutants and pathogens, recover nutrients and energy, and produce clean water.
Change in the wastewater industry takes time, but if we can demonstrate that online analysis is feasible, it is a relatively inexpensive technology, and with the database, it will be simple to use and fast - sampling and results can be obtained in a day, rather than weeks or months. Because, the work can be done by less skilled workers rather than experts, we believe bio-culturing will be very appealing to wastewater treatment operators and consultants.
