Anaerobic Digestion

Comments are Off

BCP12 contains facultative anaerobic bacteria with a total count of 5 billion CFU/g. These bacteria can digest sludge aerobically and anaerobically.  They can be used for reduction of mass and volume of sludge in aerobic, anaerobic, and facultative lagoons in biosolids management. Bioaugmentation with BCP12 can increase the efficiency of overloaded treatment systems by breaking down proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids mostly through hydrolysis and further through acidogenesis. In addition, bioaugmentation with BCP12 reduces unpleasant odors. BCP12 also increases the production of biogas, a renewable fuel. The use of biogas fuel is growing globally especially as a part of agricultural and municipal waste treatment. Biogas can be used for plant and digester heating at a significantly lower cost than natural gas. BCP12 therefore increases wastewater treatment plant productivity by accelerating biogas production. BCP12 is applied to the primary digester, and application rate is based on digester volume —
