The naked proof

Bioaugmentation

Existing microbial communities can't always degrade all contaminants present in wastewater. Adding our microbial solutions to the community in a process known as bioaugmentation targets the problematic contaminants and makes the community more robust.

How do we know? Because the effect of bioaugmentation is measurable and proven.

The right solution

One size doesn't fit all

Bioaugmentation is not a one-size-fits-all solution, so the first step is to define a wastewater system's unique needs. Our technical experts recommend a solution after evaluating the system's operating conditions and diagnosing the microbial population using advanced analytical techniques.
Cost-efficient degradation

Hydrocarbon hero

When existing microbial communities can't maintain hydrocarbon degradation, many petrochemical wastewater facilities rely on powdered activated carbon (PAC) to do the job. This significantly increases costs, according to Steve Leach from our wastewater team. 
The goal is to minimize costs while maintaining effective hydrocarbon degradation in the effluent. Novozymes BioRemove 2300 is a blend of carefully chosen microorganisms with unique hydrocarbon degradation capabilities that saved one petrochemical facility $120,000 per year. It also reduced effluent TSS by 26% and kept effluent biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) below permitted levels.

Managing COD levels

Boost biogas production

 High organic loads in the agriculture and food and beverages sectors makes managing chemical oxygen demand (COD) levels a challenge.

Bioaugmentation can increase the efficiency of COD removal and production of biogas. Novozymes BG Max® 3000 saved one pork processing facility $170,000 per year through increased biogas generation, which reduced the need to buy natural gas.
