Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Water

[hr top=”0″ bottom=”15″]

BOC has very synergistic characteristics that enhance water clarification and nearly all treatment systems used to purify water.

Municipal water systems, agricultural irrigation, aquaculture ponds, cooling towers, lagoons, rivers, pools, and hot tubs are all systems where water purity quality are dramatically impacted by BOC, and where BOC has distinct and proven technical advantages over any other chemistry.

BOC bio-catalytic technology works by increasing oxygen transfer rates and elevating the dissolved oxygen levels within water bodies (a key water quality measurement). This critical mechanism works in conjunction with a rapid breakdown of the organic wastes within the water column to create a higher purity of water.

BOC has shown the ability to eliminate the buildup of mineralization and biological film growth in water lines and tanks, reducing the organic waste by-products that feed pathogen growth and odorous conditions.

The ability to increase dissolved oxygen levels has proven to be the key factor in the Company’s success in eliminating odors in water bodies. The bio-catalytic capabilities provide a powerful broad spectrum enzymatic breaking of molecular bonds.

A key feature of BOC products is the immediate elimination of noxious odors upon contact.  Thereafter, BOC naturally accelerates the release of pollutant streams into a more readily consumable food source for ecological restoration.

Benefits include:

·        Clarification of water

·        Reduction of sanitizing chemicals

·        Reduction of waste by-products remaining in water column

·        Reduction of chemical odors (VOCs)

·        Elimination of mineralization buildup

·        Elimination of organic growth and films

WASTEWATER

[hr top=”0″ bottom=”15″]

BOC biocatalytic compositions provide numerous benefits all of the biological processes (aerobic and anaerobic) used to convert waste loadings into high quality discharges.

The array of benefits made possible with BOCs can be applied system-wide to bring critical solutions to the fundamental challenges of operators.  Odors, improving dissolved oxygen levels, reduction of organic loadings and biosolids, and improvements in discharges, are all operating parameters that can be improved with use of BOC.

BOC will allow a higher conversion of organic wastes, reduce energy usage, and lower sludge volumes. BOC  will therefore substantially expand a wastewater facility’s total loading and capacity requirements.

By greatly lowering the quantity of biosolids, processing and dewatering requirements are reduced. Transportation costs for hauling away these biosolids to landfills is likewise reduced.

BOC is unique in the ability to provide substantial improvements in dissolved oxygen levels, while simultaneously reducing the energy requirements of the aeration systems. This is both economically compelling, as well as critically important when the wastewater system is attempting to treat heavy organic loadings than the system is optimally designed.

The capability to not only eliminate H2S gas levels and odors, grease clogging is unequaled by any other technology on the market. Ultimately, BOC offers a tool to create within the collection system an accelerated aerobic biological breakdown of the organic loading (BOD/TKN) of the sewage prior to entering the wastewater treatment facility.

Benefits include:

  • Elimination of Odors
  • Increased Dissolved Oxygen (DO)
  • Reduces Energy Usage
  • Eliminates Floating Grease Build-up
  • Reduces Volatile Organic Compounds (Hydrogen Sulfide, Ammonia, Amines, Ketones and Mercaptans
  • Reduces Sludge Volumes
  • Reduces BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand), TDS (Total Suspended Solids) and COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand)
  • Enhances Biological Processing (BNR)
  • Cleans Collection System (Odors, Slime & FOGs)
  • Breaks Down Organic Binders & Mineralization (Struvite)
  • Reduces Oxidation Chemicals
  • Cleans Concentrated Animal Feedlot Operations (CAFO) Lagoons

SEWER AND COLLECTION SYSTEMS

[hr top=”0″ bottom=”15″]

BOC has phenomenal H2S gas (odor) reduction performance compared to other chemical or biological agent in the marketplace.  Importantly, it also offers an ability to biologically reduce sewage upstream of wastewater treatment facilities. BOC is able to treat miles of sewer lines downstream of injection, cleaning the biological growth (slime layers) within the pipes which are the underlying biological sites for anaerobic conditions leading to Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) formation, and creating higher bulk sewage dissolved oxygen levels.

BOC is able to increase the dissolved oxygen levels  within the sewage flowing  through the sewer pipes as it captures dissolved oxygen from the turbulence of wastewater flows.  When combined with aeration within wet wells, floating grease, clogging, and odorous gases can be solved, while at the same time initiating the biological reactions which can lower the eventual loadings (BOD/TKN) and discharges of wastewater treatment facilities.

Bio-catalysis of wastewater constituents (BOD, TKN) within the collection system, reduces the loading values prior to the wastewater treatment facility, thereby reducing aeration demands from BOD and TKN reductions.

BOC has shown capabilities to lower H2S levels in sewer line repair/replacement that exceed the capabilities of all other chemical products on the market.  This market application has proven to be quite compelling as the threshold levels of H2S for worker safety make these a crucial test of product performance against all competing, and typically toxic, chemical agents.

Benefits include:

  • Substantially eliminate H2S gases and odors
  • Eliminate floating grease in pump stations
  • Treat upstream TKN/BOD loadings (Active pre-treatment of sewage)
  • Reduce chemical costs
  • Much safer than harsh and toxic chemicals

ODOR NEUTRALIZATION

[hr top=”0″ bottom=”15″]

EccoMate has shown superior capabilities in odor elimination due the enhancement of oxygen gas transfer rates and conversion of anaerobic biological conditions to an aerobic state. The ability to effect an instantaneous elimination of noxious odors and dangerous gases, such as hydrogen sulfides (H2S), has important value to worker safety and preventing community complaints.

Existing odor reduction chemistries include oxidation oriented chemical agents and bacterial mixtures that are not nearly as effective, can cost more, and lack the additional capabilities our bio-catalysts of enhancing aerobic biological conditions.  These attributes are critical to eliminating the biological factors which lead to the formation of noxious gases and odors.  Additionally, studies are showing that in composting operations the actual rate of aerobic composting to be substantially improved with EccoMate.

For instance, ORKIN, the largest pest control company in North America, is using EccoMate as the active chemistry of its odor control units which are installed on a monthly service model to its substantial client base of restaurant and property owners.  An important aspect of odor control is the connection with insect control, as odors are the primary attractor to flies and other insects that plague establishments which deal in food wastes and other organic waste streams.

Through bio-catalytic oxygen transfer mechanism, EccoMate creates an immediate and accelerated cessation of odors from septic waters and solid wastes, and restoration of healthier aerobic biological conditions within entire ecological areas, such as the noxious odors produced in wastewater treatment, lagoons, urban and rural waterways, as well as the composting processes of renewable organic wastes.

ANAEROBIC DIGESTION

[hr top=”0″ bottom=”15″]

BOC offers substantial improvement in anaerobic digestion, providing higher yields of bio-methane, improved sludge quality, reduction of total solids, and significant reduction of noxious sludge odors.

BOC has shown, in municipal and industrial anaerobic digestion systems, that they act on the TVS and TS components, providing higher reduction rates over baseline values.

BOC can increase bio-methane yields over 100%, with up to 30% reduction in total solids discharged. Sludge quality is enhanced due to more complete digestion and sludge odors will be greatly reduced, including odors in dewatering operations.

BOC accelerate the anaerobic digestion processes into more optimized conversion efficiency. Case studies show a much higher yield per pound, or kilo, of organic waste biogas, while clearing the internal accumulations that build up over time.BOC requires little capital equipment expenditure, as installations involve simple  injection pumps, along with a reservoir of BOCs.  Results become evident relatively quickly, as a faster release of high bio-methane value components of the waste material shifts the internal biomass within the anaerobic digester into the Methanogenesis phase, increasing the bio-methane yields and total consumption of volatile fatty acids.

Applications in municipal and food processing AD systems showed close correlations between higher TS and TVS conversion rates and higher bio-methane yields on a dry weight comparison, pointing towards an acceleration of the phased Methanogenesis cycle.  This results in total overall enhancement of complete biomass vitality and microbiological population densities involved in the anaerobic processes required for optimal bio-methane yields and BTU values.

The combined total mass balance analysis shows improvements in obtaining optimal bio-methane yields,  On a dry weight TVS basis, can run from 25% – 100% over comparable baselines.

Additionally, the final biosolids quality and weight reductions (up to 25%), including substantial elimination of noxious biosolids odors, all indicate a more complete biological conversion of nutrient values.

Benefits include:

  • Increase bio-methane yields
  • Allow more complete digestion of solids
  • Reduce volume of solids
  • Reduce odors from solids in dewatering operations
  • Improve quality of solids
