Bioremediation of Produced Water FAQ’s

Bioremediation of Produced Water – Frequently Asked Questions. What are the general characteristics of produced water? Produced waters that are formed from gas production tend to have high concentrations of aromatic hydrocarbons, specifically the BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, and xylene) compounds. Produced water also contains the chemicals used for gas processing such as; sulfide removal chemicals, dehydration chemicals, hydrogen sulfide reducing chemicals, and chemicals that inhibit hydrates. Produced water contains free product hydrocarbons, and a number of dissolved and dispersed compounds. Generally, produced water is placed into a holding pond. What is bioremediation of produced water? Bioremediation of produced water is the use of bacteria to metabolize the hydrocarbons and other petroleum compounds associated with produced water. What are the major problems associated with produced water? Generally, produced water is first treated to remove as much free product hydrocarbons as possible. While the goal is to reduce TRPH to below 100ppm, most treated produced water contains 300-400 ppm TRPH. Additionally, produced water contains saturation concentrations for any hydrocarbons present. These hydrocarbons can’t be removed by physical methods. Treating these remaining hydrocarbons is the major problem with produced water. Also, as the produced water begins to evaporate, a number of problems develop. The hydrocarbons in the produced water begin to...

Custom HC Tabs Bioremediation Bacteria

Custom HC Tabs Bioremediation Bacteria Biological Hydrocarbon and Petroleum Digestant Custom HC Tabs are the easiest solution to Oil/Water separator maintenance. No Measuring! No Mixing! No Pumps! Simply drop Custom HC Tabs into the separator to help reduce TPH, BTEX, hydrocarbons, oil, and more. Custom HC Tabs contain a highly concentrated blend of naturally occurring, petrophilic (oil loving), bacteria that actually digest hydrocarbons and petroleum products that would normally accumulate inside the oil water separator, laundry wastewater, or car wash recycle water. These bioremediation bacteria have been selected because of their safety and their enhanced ability to metabolize hydrocarbons and petroleum products. Custom HC Tabs’ slow release formula continuously releases bacteria for maximum effectiveness without the need for expensive pumps. Now, you can use the latest technology, bioremediation bacteria, to solve your oil water separator and car wash odor problems.

Biological Wastewater Treatment

What is Biological Wastewater Treatment Biological Wastewater Treatment is the use of microorganisms, generally bacteria, to naturally degrade organic wastes found in wastewater.  The use of biological wastewater treatment results in BOD reduction, COD reduction, FOG (Fats, Oils, and Grease) reduction and wastewater odor control. Custom Biologicals manufactures F-TREAT which is our main biological wastewater treatment product. The bacteria in F-TREAT have been specifically selected because of their enhanced ability to degrade and remove a wide variety of organic wastes. Custom Biologicals has over twenty years experience in the use of bacteria to degrade the organic chemicals found in municipal and industrial wastewater. F-TREAT has proven to be effective in degrading the organic wastes found in a number of wastewaters including: Municipal Wastewater Lift stations Industrial Wastewater Pulp and Paper Wastewater Food Processing Wastewater Petrochemical Wastewater Animal Waste Wastewater Shrimp Aquaculture Wastewater Custom also has the ability to customize a biological wastewater treatment specifically for your specific wastewater problem. We have addressed wastewater problems such as phosphate reduction, nitrogen reduction, bulking, foaming, and filamentous bacteria problems. Contact Custom Biologicals for more information about how to customize a wastewater solution. Custom wastewater solutions are not limited to large scale wastewater treatment plants. We have products for on-site wastewater treatment such as...
