NCH Europa has launched a new wastewater treatment system of two parts that is 1000 times more powerful than standard powder or liquid bacterial formulations. The BioAmp system works in conjunction with NCH´s FreeFlow products, in the delivery of twelve species of active and safe bacteria for food in flow systems.
Powered by NCH´s Europe Wastewater Innovation Platform, BioAmp is a range of computer controlled delivery systems that can be easily programed by an end user. They can automatically dose flow metering systems reducing the need for labor.
The FreeFlow products used by BioAmp deliver daily about 30-500 trillion live bacteria in the sewage system, 1000 times more than its nearest competitor, according to the company. While many products remain dormant in a system for hours before entering the system, FreeFlow bacteria are activated from the very moment they enter the system. It is available in liquid and tablets.
Waste Water elimination
FreeFlow bacteria were selected because of their ability to readily degrade carbohydrates, proteins, animal fats, cooking, oil and grease (FOG). This makes them effective in removing and decomposing waste that cause malodors, typically as a result of FOG obstruction clogging drain lines or grease traps.
“BioAmp and FreeFlow allow companies to avoid being exposed to financial or even legal consequences, which can be caused by sewage disposal,” explains Mario Kelly, vice president of the Platform for Wastewater Innovation of NCH Europe. “If a business discharges into drains or rivers it must meet strict regulations required by an effective treatment system,” he says.
“The BioAmp system is able to degrade pollutants that contribute to biological oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD) and suspended solids (SS), which reduces the risk of non-compliance charges,” he says.
Obligations of the companies
NCH Europe recalls in the statement that companies discharging their wastewater into sewer may face fines imposed by courts and internal operating costs based on the flow and COD and SS pollutants level. Discharges to the river may have legal implications determined by the BOD and SS discharge parameters., they warn.
BioAmp can be easily integrated with existing wastewater treatment equipment and can be easily mounted in restricted space, while service personnel trained by NCH maintains all the company systems, which further reduces needs for manpower.
