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.

Bioremediation using F-TREAT in Municipal Sewer Lines

Bioremediation using F-TREAT in Municipal Sewer Lines Use of F-TREAT The problem of grease and fat buildup (FOG’s) in municipal sewer lines creates a major monetary investment for its removal each year. Cleaning, therefore is carried out only in those sewer lines where blockage of flow is a major concern. Any new and economical method of alleviating the problem is of great value. F-TREAT, a bioremediation product, has demonstrated a potential to achieve the required results and can be used in the following situations. As a Complete Bioremediation Solution – Problematic sewer lines undergo an inoculation treatment to remove fat deposits such as those exemplified by the Parliament and Piccadilly Street Branch sewers.  As a pretreatment – Physical and mechanical fat removal methods can be made substantially easier by pretreatment of the sewer lines with F-TREAT. Trials have shown that F-TREAT can significantly alter the characteristics of FOG’s making it less sticky and more friable and aid in its removal by suction. As a Maintenance/Preventative Treatment – Physically, mechanically, or biologically cleaned sewers are susceptible to recurrent problems as soon as the fats start to buildup again. Maintenance dosing of a cleaned sewer will prevent FOG buildup by bringing about a continued solubilization of the fat before it can cause...

Problems with Fats Oils and Grease in the Sewage System

Fats Oils and Grease in the Sewage System Fats oils and grease (FOG) cause the majority of the problems and the headaches for municipal wastewater treatment systems. Fats oils and grease accumulations can cause sewage blockages, increase sewage odors particularly at lift stations, cause pipes corrosion, and general make wastewater treatment operators’ job much more difficult. The source of Fats oils and grease in the sewage system is animal fat, vegetable fat, and oils used to cook and prepare food. While restaurants and food service companies produce the majority of FOG’s, its important not to overlook the amount of FOG’s added to the sewage system by individual households. Many communities require FOG pretreatment from industrial and commercial sources. However, since no there are no real restrictions on FOG disposal by residences, fats oils and grease will always get into the sewage systems and cause problems. Problems with Fats Oils and Grease in the Sewage System Fats oils and grease collect on the inside of sewage pipes. Much like arteriosclerosis in the human circulatory system, the accumulation of FOG’s in the pipes over time causes the pipes to constrict. This constriction reduces the sewage pipe capacity requiring more frequent pipe cleaning and more frequent pipe replacement. Further, this pipe constriction...
