The treatment of wastewaters in both municipal and industrial applications virtually always incorporates a biological process at some stage. The removal of both natural and synthetic organic contaminants is accomplished in biological systems consisting of single and multicellular organisms where numerous mechanisms such as enzymatic simplification, bio surfactants, and direct absorption take place. Populations of many different types of organisms exist at varying levels depending on food (waste) source, temperature, pH, oxygen level, etc. This combined population is collectively known as biomass.
Maintaining a biomass requires tight control of a number of parameters, loss of control through improper operation, presence of toxicants or sudden environmental changes can result in contaminants passing through the system. Failure of a biomass may result in environmental damage and restoring its health can require considerable time and effort.
ReNew Systems products are designed to improve the efficiency of this biomass by adding oxygen through acclimation and continuous feed of 2-10 ppm. This level generally increases the metabolic rate so that we actually add oxygen to a Biomass which reduces COD, H2S, Ammonia, Phosphorus and other contaminants.
Failed lagoons cannot digest waste and therefore begin to store solids. The particles cloud the water to a point where sunlight cannot penetrate the water to stimulate algae growth, which is necessary to produce oxygen and take up nutrients.
With the addition of the NuSystems Program to the lagoon, there is an accelerated breakdown of organic compounds in the upper layer of the lagoon.
In time, further degradation of organic wastes allows light to penetrate into the water column. This allows the algae to begin growing while taking up the nutrients and releasing oxygen. The result is a sustainable cycle of oxygen generation, which is used by aerobic bacteria to digest organic waste.
