Occasionally, wastewater operators are faced with illegal dumping into their systems. Some of the dumping may include heavy crude, hydro-carbons, oils and fuel. These materials are detrimental to the active biology operating at the wastwater facility.
Fortunately, with BioLynceus programs it is possible to get the bio-activity back working properly, while digesting the hydro-carbons. In several instances around the country BioLynceus has implemented a two-fold application to help the operators. The first goal was to get the bio-activity of the plant operational, so the wastewater digestion could do the job it was commissioned to complete. The second goal included getting the digestion of the hydrocarbons on-line and working, to remove and mitigate the contaminate from the plant's wastewater stream.
After the initial innoculation of BioLynceus' products, an on-going application of the hydro-carbon digesting product was followed-up for use in the systems. The operators could actively see the reduction of the hydrocarbon in their system and with the increased biological activity. In a matter of a few weeks the system was returned to optimal digestion and the impact of the hydro-carbon was reduced.
In the situations where BioLynceus has been commissioned to assist water treatment professionals, there was an obvious dumping of hydro-carbons into the treatment facility. In one case a truck had dumped some weathered diesel directly into the lagoon system. In other cases it is likely that the materials were dumped via the sewer system. In all of the cases the dumping of the hydrocarbon material was devesatating to the active digestion of the wastewater plant. The plant needed a solution to remediate the chemicals and get their system running efficiently.
Wastewater traditionally has a high amount of FOG - or Fats, Oils and Grease that are based on hydro-carbons. BioLynceus has been providing FOG solutions to municipalities around the country with tremendous success. Remediation of any kind of hydro-carbon is an ideal application for BioLynceus programs.
