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.

Industrial Effluent Treatment – Food Manufacturing Facility

This case study is about the industrial effluent treatment of a food manufacturing facility by the use of F-TREAT, a biological wastewater treatment product. F-TREAT, by Custom Biologicals, is a biological effluent treatment designed to reduce odor, reduce FOG, reduce BOD and COD, and reduce BTEX, in industrial wastewater treatment plants. F-TREAT has applications in food manufacturing wastewater, pulp and paper wastewater, petrochemical wastewater, and refinery wastewater. Industrial Effluent Treatment – Food Manufacturing Facility Client Category: Industrial Effluent Treatment – Wastewater – Food Manufacturing and Serving Facilities Location: Orlando, Florida, USA Physical Plant: Seven Locations. Four have 1500 gallon holding tanks and three have 500 gallon tanks. Effluent waste stream is from the tanks only. Flow: 8,000-10,000 gallons per day. Problem: High BOD in excess of 2,000 mg/L. High TSS in excess of 1200 mg/L. FOG exceeding the 100 mg/L limit. The temperature in the tanks was elevated above average at 150° F. Previous Treatment: Pumping the tanks every 30 days and dumping it in a landfill. Previous Results: BOD decreased to 1400 mg/L average. Backups into the preparation areas were common and sewer odors were emitted each time the waste was pumped. Custom Treatment: 6 gallons of F-TREAT were added to each 1500 gallon tank each day and 4 gallons of F-TREAT were added to each 500 gallon tank...
