Description

A proprietary treatment of
specially selected bacteria
and microbial strains
which produce massive
concentrations of digestive
enzymes when introduced
into wastewater and
sewerage environments.

Introduction & Challenges:
Sludge: Sludge handling is the
number one problem waste water
treatment plants. What enters the
waste water plant has to exit the
plant at some time and some place.
The more sludge removed, the
greater the expense in labour,
offsite hauling and disposal, not to
mention that the huge carbon
footprint of offsite haulage costs.
Sludge handling costs vary from tens
of thousands of Rands in small
plants, to hundreds of thousands or
even several million Rands in larger
facilities, on a monthly basis.
Mechanical Equipment Failure: As
sludge builds up in the system the
waste water’s viscosity becomes
much thicker which immediately
puts enormous strain on all the
mechanical machinery in the
sewerage plant which results in
components failing and breaking
more often from the extra torque
requirements placed on them for
which they are not designed.
Equipment repairs in these
instances are high capex items
which are mostly unplanned for and
extremely expensive.
Electricity Costs: An addition to the
mechanical strain sludge causes, the
electro mechanical systems in the
plant run at a fraction of their
intended efficiency resulting in large
inefficiencies of scale which greatly
increases utility and overall
electrical bills which are huge cost
items when looking at the overall
monthly costs of running a sewer
treatment plant.
Downtime: With the problems
caused by sludge build-up,
mechanical failure is eventually
guaranteed, and this results in the
total in-operation of smaller plants
or partial closure of larger plants for
repairs. This in turn places severe
operational loads and constraints on
other sections of the plant which has
a vicious knock-on effect which
starts all over again in a continuing
and downward spiral.
Odour Pollution: The odour
generated by sewer plants is
enormous and can often be
overbearing depending on the state
of the waste in the plant. By pure
design or eventual population
expansion sewer plants are often
situated in residential or commercial
areas and the foul odours generated
can be unbearable. This has an
immediate and negative effect on
perception of commerce and
industry as well as deteriorating
property value, not to mention
quality of life for surrounding
communities and businesses.
Ongoing Problems:
Such large expenditures and
challenges are not likely to decrease
because of expanding population,
fewer approved disposal sites,
inflation, increased use of chemicals
which add to sludge volume and
deteriorated state of the sludge and
waste, as well as ever tighter
growing regulations. There is an
enormous consumer trend of
increasing the disinfectant
properties of commercial hygiene,
cleaning and personal care products.
These disinfectants are transferred
downstream and indiscriminately
kill all bacteria, good and bad, which
are needed for sewer plants to
function correctly. Without good
bacteria, sewer plants will grind to
an immediate halt.
