Wastewater system start-up: A tricky business
Reduce production delays, enable discharge compliance
Novozymes BioQuick 5140® is a unique enzymatic solution for wastewater treatment start-up systems.
BioQuick® contains beneficial microorganisms on a microporous mineral carrier and trace elements. When added to an aeration basin, the carrier acts as a support medium and provides attachment sites for bacterial growth, while the micronutrients and microorganisms help accelerate biomass development.
As the microbial community develops, BioQuick® 5140 helps floc particles increase in size, mass, and ability to settle.
BioQuick 5140® should be used in conjunction with other Novozymes’ microbial products for start-ups and for upset recovery. This allows the start-up process to happen faster and with greater predictability.
