Bio-treatment of tank cleaning generated waters.
The application of biological systems for remediation and control of environmental processes has greatly increased in recent years. Employing bio-remediation, pollutants are degraded into products that are part of naturally occurring cycles. Degradation of hazardous and toxic wastes employing naturally occurring bacterial cultures go hand in hand. Transport Service Company has merged this process into an industrial wastewater treatment system. Equipment used to facilitate this process includes: air pumps, fine air diffusers, pH control mechanisms, holding tanks and a separator for primary treatment.
Benefits include the reduced toxicity of generated wastewaters via naturally occurring organisms.
Details of Reductions
Additional Information :
Financial benefits include reduction of man hours associated with the previous treatment process. Operational cost have been substantially reduced. Most importantly, though, are the reduction in surcharges imposed by the POTW for secondary treatment. These surcharges annually are $20,000.00. Payback on project estimated at 1.5 years.
