New environmentally friendly wastewater treatment brings cost savings

12 April 2010

A revolutionary new system for the treatment of wastewater is now available in the UK and Ireland. BioAmp is an environmentally friendly system that solves a range of wastewater problems and at the same time brings considerable cost savings.

BioAmp is a compact, computer controlled microbial fermentation unit that is installed on site and delivers a large amount of active, naturally occurring bacteria directly into the drains.
 
The bacteria then goes to work on the wastewater, reducing grease, fats and oils build-up, as well as eliminating odours. It is ideal for use on grease traps, septic tanks and sewage treatments at far less cost than other bacteria based systems.

The BioAmp system delivers 31 trillion live bacteria every 24-hours into drains, grease traps, lift stations and wastewater treatment plants. The BioAmp system is 1000 more powerful at one-tenth the cost of commercially available dry powder or liquid bacterial formulations. It enables wastewater problems to be solved in-house, enabling compliance with European Directives and local regulations. The system has US National Sanitation Foundation approval.

The UK Government and local authorities have introduced stringent requirements on wastewater purity for industrial and commercial facilities, involving surcharges and fines for those who do not meet the standards required. BioAmp speeds and amplifies the natural breakdown of organic waste, including soluble BOD, TSS, ammonia and FOG, transforming highly polluted wastewater to more acceptable levels and the water utility operators.

BioAmp’s unique technology can bring savings of thousands of pounds per year by reducing surcharges, fines and energy costs for businesses and other organisations. Because the system is supplied and maintained on a monthly fee basis, there is no capital equipment investment required. It can normally be incorporated into existing drainage systems without the need for modifications.

Many companies, both large and small, are already benefiting from BioAmp, including manufacturers, food processors, hotels, restaurants, hospitals, local authorities, utilities and mining.

Typical examples of savings achieved are a food processing company in the Philippines that is saving approximately £16,000 per year in fines for foul odours, a telecommunications company in Ireland that has reduced its wastewater charges by around £30,000, and a food manufacturer in Denmark that has achieved a total saving of around £17,000 on its drainage costs.

BioAmp converts Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) to CO2 and H2O and reduces the amount of off-site sludge disposal. It lowers energy consumption, conserves water and can replace harmful chemicals, making it a vital part of any environmental improvement programme. It can also help companies achieve ISO 14,001 Certification and enhance the IPPC directive.

BioAmp presents one of those rare opportunities when solving an environmental problem has an immediate and measurable impact, needs no large capital investment and brings with it a sizeable cost reduction.

BioAmp is produced and supplied by BioHygenic, which is an NCH company.
