Biological Treatment of Industrial Residual Waste Water

OcotAir-10™ diffuser for aeration of residual water from an abbatoir.

The biological treatment of residual industrial waste water in the Agro-food sector is possible with aeration and bioaugmentation.

Waste water from the Agrobusiness sector is characterized by a large volume of organics, chemicals and suspended solids. Many industrial establishments discharge water with an appreciable amount of fat, phosphorous, nitrogen and sodium chloride. Since the water to be released is usually free of metals and is considered biodegradable, they can easily be treated with biological treatments.

  • One of our clients with operations in Saskatchewan, Ontario and Alberta has been in the Agri-food business for over two centuries. Their factories in Canada involved in food processing need to manage residual materials such as fats. They also must control odours, and ensure overall high water quality at the treatment sites.
    According to the specific needs and the type of transformation at each plant, we proposed our strongest beneficial bacteria formulation Bacterius 5B in conjunction with aeration in the basins.
  • Another client in Tahiti works in the field of animal slaughter. To comply with discharge standards, the only commercial slaughterhouse in French Polynesia had to be renovated. New, more energy efficient equipment had to be purchased to manage the wastewater.
    Two aeration systems with compressors and industrial OctoAir-10™ diffusers were acquired. The treatments with beneficial bacteria Bacterius specific to waste water, finalized the water treatment with a minimum of management and energy consumption.
