Bio-Organic Catalyst Technology
Bio-Organic Catalyst Mechanisms of Action
Catalyzation: Reduces the amount of energy required for biological or chemical reactions to occur, then participates repeatedly in these reactions while reducing the time and rate required for turnover (accelerates nature’s degradation process 100-fold faster).
Solubilization: BOC solubilizes the cellular structure of organic waste, thereby increasing gas transfer rates, and making it easier for naturally occurring bacteria to digest organic substances and oxidizing agents to work.
Oxygenation: Seeds formation of micro-bubbles that act as a platform for biological and chemical reactions to occur, and creates a stable, time-delivered system to disperse oxygen throughout the water column thereby increasing the availability of oxygen beyond Henry’s Law (more available oxygen enables aerobic reactions that will speed up the natural degradation process).
Competitive Advantages: The superior performance and broad applicability of BOC over traditional chemical agents, or biologically derived products, provides profound competitive advantages in the current marketplace. BOC patented bio-organic catalysts have the ability to exclusively meet the key performance objectives now faced by facilities management, such as nitrogen discharge reduction, increased carrying capacity, FOG treatment, sludge reduction, higher aeration capability, reduction of mineralization build-up, and reduction of total discharges.
Convenience and Versatility in Multiple Applications: The integrated nature of BOC products, combining multiple catalytic process elements, provides extraordinary versatility in application. While the actual process mechanism is founded on complex biochemical interactions, the methods for use are quite simple and do not represent a barrier to product acceptance.
Significant Performance: BOC products offer customers a means to achieve superior performance objectives, often improving the fundamental economics of the applicable process.
Efficacy: BOC products have independently demonstrated broad and significant efficacy in process and application enhancement. In the wastewater operation, it can reduce energy usage up to 40% and sludge disposal/ treatment volumes up to 30%, eliminate odors, clean FOG accumulation in lift stations, and help facilities reach regulatory discharge requirements.
Non-Toxicity: BOC products are non-toxic, non-caustic, non-corrosive, non-irritating, hypoallergenic, bacteria-free and biodegradable. The environmentally friendly features of the products substantially reduce exposure and liability to the user, its workers and the environment, and don’t trigger costly OSHA or hazardous material handling requirements.
Fast Results: BOC offers dramatic improvements achieved very quickly. In wastewater treatment facilities, the early results odor control, FOG elimination, and aeration energy optimization are seen within a few days.
Shifting The Nature of Biological Treatment: The biological mechanisms of the treatment system are beneficially and fundamentally changed, thus reducing major organic contaminant loads from the waste stream. This results in dramatic improvements in reduction of collection system corrosion of concrete, steel, and aluminum surfaces from H2S gases, loading and throughput at the plant, and reduced energy costs, sludge disposal costs, maintenance and downtime.
Displacing Capital Expenditures: BOC can immediately increase the efficacy and efficiency of wastewater treatment systems, enabling capacity expansion to be deferred for years. The avoidance of capital costs, coupled with lowered operating costs, has the potential to significantly restructure water treatment project economics in favor of BOC biocatalysts.
