With the addition of My Green Labs EBT2 to an activated sludge wastewater treatment facility, the activity and metabolism of specific, naturally occurring bacteria is stimulated.
By maintaining a dominance of these select biological cultures with the addition of My Green Labs EBT2, tremendous benefits can be achieved in the operational efficiency of a treatment facility along with savings in cost and time.
With the introduction of My Green Labs EBT2 to the front end of an activated sludge treatment facility, the population and metabolic rate of facultative anaerobes is significantly increased. With the population of these micro-organisms significantly enhanced in an activated sludge treatment facility, overall removal efficiencies can be increased with substantial energy and capital cost savings.
APPLICATIONS IN AN ACTIVATED SLUDGE FACILITY
Typical results that can be expected with the use of My Green Labs EBT2 in an existing activated sludge treatment plant are as follows:
i) Increase in BOD removal efficiency due to:
a) increase in biological activity within aeration basin
b) improved settleability of solids in clarifier resulting in lower suspended solids in the effluent.
ii) Decrease in suspended solids in effluent due to:
a) improved solids settleability
b) more complete solids digestion
iii) Increased organic/hydraulic loading capacity of treatment facility due to:
a) increased BOD removal capability
b) increased solids settleability
iv) Increase in overall operational efficiency due to:
a) increase in biological activity resulting in an increase in BOD removal
b) more complete solids digestion and solids settleability resulting in lower suspended solids
v) Decrease in energy requirement due to:
a) decrease in oxygen requirement of system due to increased activity of facultative bacteria
vi) Decrease in nitrogen and phosphorous in effluent due to:
a) more active and complete biological degradation resulting in consumption of more available nutrients
b) lower suspended solids in effluent thus lowering nutrient concentrations associated with the solids.
