There is a challenge of maintaining the desired level of microbial activity for the treatment
Most of the conventional treatment plants do not perform efficiently and effectively. The reason behind it
- The designers have failed to address the issue of maintaining the desired level of microbial activity in treatment plants, which results in process failure.
- Knowledgeable personnel for operating small plants using suspended growth processes are a dying tribe
The suspended growth processes have high cell mortality leading to a collapse of the process and wash out of biomass from the aeration tank has been a handicap in such technologies making it economically nonviable, requiring personnel with knowledge of microbiology.
Lack of knowledgeable personnel for operating plants using a suspended growth process
Unlike the attached growth process, the suspended growth process requires people with lots of experience and knowledge to run the plant. Which is a dying tribe like we said.
At OxyO, Our biological treatment plants achieve the desired results in the destruction of biodegradable organics with the utilization of biofilm which is simple, efficient, and produces results that meet the prescribed standards. It is an established knowledge that maintaining the (consortium of microbes) microbial cell count and cell viability in the reactors is the only way to treat wastewater efficiently. Any process that can help sustain microbial activity results in the most efficient method of biological treatment. Our process has all the ingredients to support the microbial activity to treat the wastewater successfully. Generally, any level of purification efficiency can be achieved based on the principle of microorganism’s metabolism.
