Potential to reduce classification of sludge waste sludge is removed from the operation as filter cake (industrial) or bio-solids (sewage). In certain industrial treatment plants, the biological activity is often low due to the type of contaminant being treated, and as a result of low resonance times. Filter cake is a result of high coagulation and flocculation additives utilized to remove suspended solids and contaminants. BIOSTRAINZ™ enzymes rapidly remove contaminants at the molecular level, including many suspended solids, hence the need for flocculation and coagulation is substantially reduced, resulting in reduced filter cake volume.
In sewage treatment and some industrial processes, the majority of bio-solids produced are dead bacterial cells that were formed to remove the nutrients (carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus etc) from the sewage through microbial digestion for energy and in the creation of new bacterial cellular material. As a high speed enzyme technology.
BIOSTRAINZ™ does not rely on a biomass to remove the nutrients, solids and contaminants. The second source of bio-solids is residual contaminant material. Through its high speed action, BIOSTRAINZ™ achieves a higher removal rate of this waste. In combination this enables BIOSTRAINZ™ to achieve bio-solids reductions of up to 95%.
In some instances the efficiency of BIOSTRAINZ™ technology will remove a significant amount of pathogens and volatile organic content from sludge waste. This may result in the reclassification of waste products to less hazardous criteria. This may make sludge waste suitable for salable commercial applications rather than waste disposal.
