Industrial Water Treatment with Electrocoagulation
Plating wastewater is an excellent match for treatment with an electrocoagulation system. For example, a plating wastewater stream was treated with the EC treatment process. The water treated very well in the EC reactor and generated a good floc that settled well following treatment. A polymer was used to assist in floc formation in the sample. The metals concentrations in the treated water meet the discharge standards for the client. The metal concentrations in the raw and treated water are listed below.
|Sample||Zinc, ppm||Copper, ppm||Chromium, ppm||Iron, ppm||Nickel, ppm|
Mining and Manufacturing Wastewater Treatment
The BiO2 Solution will provide a patented, engineered process that is a nature based and environmentally compatible replacement for mechanical aeration components utilized on aerated lagoons. This technology will provide an affordable and performance driven alternative solution to the high capital, operating and maintenance costs associated with mechanical systems.
Case Study - Swine and Beef Industrial Processing Facility
An Oregon meat processing facility, in close proximity to residential neighborhoods, was having trouble with effluent quality and odor issues. The existing flocculation process, installed in 1997 for $ 0.7M, had little impact on resolving issues that had historically plagued the wastewater operation.
The owner of the production facility installed The BiO2 Solution™ system in the summer of 2001, to solve the lagoon related operational problems.
The system was successful in treating waste produced by the industrial facility and solving odor issues identified by the community. A summary of the testing completed at the facility is provided in the following table.
|BOD mg/l||TSS mg/l||D.O. mg/l||Test Date||Test No.|
|Pre BiO2||286||3120||<0.10||05-09-01||KES 11187|
|Post BiO2||82||1950||2.68||09-04-02||KES 22046|
Case Study - Truck Washout Facility
A truck wash in Colorado provides facilities to clean livestock trailers. Approximately 3,000 gallons of water is used in the washing of each trailer to flush swine, cattle and sheep waste from the truck into a wastewater lagoon facility. Increasing odor and sludge levels created issues that jeopardized the continued operation at the existing location. The City agreed to accept the waste from the truck washout pending the development of wastewater pretreatment facilities that could meet specific discharge criteria acceptable to the City.
