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...

Bioremediation of Chicken Processing Wastewater – A Case Study

This case study is about the bioremediation of industrial wastewater, specifically the bioremediation of chicken processing wastewater. Food processing wastewater is one of the most common industrial wastewater problems that we work with at Custom Biologicals.  F-TREAT is the product highlighted in this case study. F-TREAT is a biological wastewater treatment product designed to reduce FOG, reduce BOD and COD, reduce odors, and reduce sludge at industrial and municipal wastewater treatment facilities. F-TREAT contains specifically selected bacteria. These bacteria have been selected because of their enhanced ability to metabolize the organic components at wastewater treatment plants.  Bioremediation of Chicken Processing Wastewater – A Case Study Client Category: Industrial Wastewater – Chicken Processing Plant Location: Georgia, USA Physical Plant: 3.5 million gallon pond and 0.9 million gallon settling pond Flow: 230,000 GPD (Gallons per Day) Problem: The protein conversion plant (rendering plant) has a LAS permit (Land Application System Permit) that allows the rendering plant to spray the treated water from the final settling pond onto fields at a rate limited by the phosphorous levels in the water. The phosphorous level was at the maximum allowable limit. Previous Treatment: Chemically treated for reduction of BOD and grease. There was not a phosphate removal system. Custom Treatment: An initial “shock” treatment of 110 gallons of F-TREAT with a daily application...

Industrial Wastewater Treatment of Petrochemicals

This case study is about industrial wastewater treatment of a petrochemical plant’s wastewater. The biological treatment of industrial wastewater is best achieved using bioaugmentation, the addition of specifically selected bacteria, to the wastewater. Generally, the native bacteria are ill equipped to metabolize the wastewater in industrial effluents. Custom Biologicals manufactures F-TREAT, a bioaugmentation product designed for use in both industrial and municipal wastewater. F-TREAT will enhance the biological degradation of the organic chemicals found in municipal and industrial wastewater treatment facilities. Each industrial wastewater effluent is unique and a “cookie cutter” approach is unlikely to produce the best results. Contact Custom Biologicals to discuss if biological treatment of industrial wastewater can help you.    Industrial Wastewater Treatment – Petrochemical Plant Client Category: Petrochemical Plant – Industrial wastewater treatment Location: Houston, TX, USA Physical Plant: Industrial Wastewater treatment plant Flow: 200,000 GPD (gallons per day) Problem: Ammonia influent levels average of 10 mg/L with spikes up to 42 mg/L. The MCL (maximum contamination limit) for this location is 20 mg/L. Previous Treatment: The client was using a competitors biological product and decided to switch products due to significant cost savings. Previous treatment was successful with average ammonia effluent levels of 2 mg/L. Custom Treatment: F-TREAT was injected once per day at a rate of 1-3 gallons per day...

Biological Treatment of Industrial Wastewater – A Case Study of Blood Plasma WasteWater

This case study is about the biological treatment of industrial wastewater, specifically blood plasma wastewater. Industrial wastewater treatment can be performed biologically using a bioaugmentation product such as F-TREAT by Custom Biologicals. F-TREAT is a biological wastewater treatment product designed to reduce odors, reduce BOD, reduce COD, reduce FOG, and reduce the petrochemicals typically found in industrial wastewater. F-TREAT contains specifically selected bacteria proven effective in improving wastewater treatment plant performance. The bacteria in F-TREAT will break down and metabolize organic compounds such as: fats, oils, greases, proteins, starches, hydrocarbons, and phenols.   Biological Treatment of Industrial Wastewater – A Case Study of Blood Plasma Wastewater   Client Category: Manufacturer of blood plasma products. Industrial wastewater. Location: Los Angeles, California, USA Physical Plant: Six-stage 430 gallon clarifier. Retention time 30 minutes. Flow: 110,000 GPD (gallons per day) Wastewater Problem: City surcharges for excess BOD and TSS average $50,000.00 per quarter. Previous Treatment: Chlorine injection after clarifier. The BOD of influent and effluent were virtually the same. Custom Treatment: F-TREAT was continuously injected into the system at the rate of two 55 gallon drums per month. Bionutrients were also added. Custom Results: An ten day product trial produced to following results. Note the almost immediate reduction in BOD by the use of the biological treatment of industrial wastewater....

Bioremediation of an Oil Water Separator – Case Study

The Bioremediation of a Oil Water Separator – A Case Study This case study involves the use of Custom-HC, a bioremediation bacterial product, in a oil water separator. Oil water separators are deigned to keep oil, fuel oils, and hydrocarbons out of municipal sewage systems. Oil water separators are a form of industrial wastewater treatment and work because of the different densities of water and oil. The generally accepted method to maintain the oil water separator is simply to pump it out periodically. This is expensive and unnecessary. Bioremediation, the use of specific bacteria to metabolize oil, is as less expensive and efficient process of maintaining oil water separators. Custom HC, a bioremediation product of Custom Biologicals, is the bioremediation bacteria used in this case study. Custom HC contains petrophilic, oil loving, bacteria. These bacteria have been specifically selected because of their enhanced ability to metabolize, eat, typical compounds found in oil water separators such as; oil, diesel, gasoline, BTEX, TPH, and phenols. Client Category: Oil Water Separator Repair garage for fleet of 29 vehicles Location: East Boston, Massachusetts Capacity: 200 gallon separator discharging into city sewage system Industrial Wastewater Problem: Received letter from city to either clean the separator or pump it. The TPH was 33,940 mg/L. The city code calls for under...
