Bioclean TM – Industrial  and Municipal Wastewater Treatment

Biodegradation is the Earth’s natural process of converting organic matter into environmentally safe by-products including water, carbon dioxide and methane gas. This process is accomplished through naturally occurring micro-organisms such as bacteria and fungi. Although these micro-organisms are naturally occurring, certain extraneous factors may not be conducive to proper growth of these microbes or for the reduction of organic compounds. For instance, nutrient levels, presence of chemicals and atmospheric conditions (viz. variations in temperature, oxygen, and pH levels) can adversely affect growth of these micro-organisms.

Bioclean TM is available in dry concentrate bacterial formulations, specially designed to provide improved waste degradation in wastewater treatment. Each gram of the product contains up to 4 billion microbes. There are up to 76 different strains of bacteria in each Bioclean TM product, depending upon the formulation type, which can biodegrade very diverse types of molecules. The microorganisms in Bioclean TM are supported on the porous surface of a special inert dry media. This special technology provides them with extraordinary durability against aggressive and toxic mediums. The technology is easy to use, inexpensive and safe.

Bioclean TM cultures are specifically formulated to resolve problems in wastewater systems receiving high-strength effluents. These microbes are really tough! They have been selectively adapted through a scientific process that develops the bacteria and allows them to degrade tough and toxic compounds that would normally overwhelm naturally occurring bacteria. The Bioclean TM Series is designed to make good systems operate better and significantly improve conditions in problematic effluent treatment plants, as a result it decreases the amount of fee must be paid for exceeding the effluent concentration limits set by the law. These microbes increase the efficiency of the plants without the need for increasing plant capacity, thereby saving electricity costs.

Bioclean TM STP – Biogas production enhancement and foaming control of anaerobic digesters

By using Bioclean STP the following benefits are expected in the operation of anaerobic digersters:

  • Increasing biogas production and improvement of Methane content
  • Foaming control

The operational mechanism of the Bioclean STP:

1 ) Increasing biogas production and improvement of Methane content









Figure 1: Processes of anaerobic degradation

Bioclean STP is a microbial complex, bacteria, enzymes, micronutrients and trace elements, developed specifically for the improvement of operational stability and increase the biogas production of anaerobic biogas reactors. The product is highly efficient in improving the speed of all phases of anaerobic degradation.

In chronological order the four phases of the anaerobic digestion process are the following:

  1. Hydrolysis
  2. Fermentation or acidogenesis
  3. Acetogenesis
  4. Methanogenesis

During hydrolysis, the complex molecules with large molecular weight, like lipids, polysaccharides, proteins and nucleic acids, are degraded into less complex compounds like fatty acids, monosaccharides, amino acids and nucleotids. In this phase, the effect of Bioclean STP’s hydrolytic bacteria can be detected primarily at the faster hydrolysis of hardly biodegradable organic macromolecules, as this is the limiting step of the four processes in terms of reaction rate.

During the fermentation, the less complex compounds resulted by hydrolysis are further degraded. Both the electron donors and electron acceptors are organic substances. During the fermentation, through several intermediate products, finally acids, mostly low-carbon-chain carboxylic acids are formed. After that during the acetogenesis, Acetate, Hydrogen and Carbon Dioxide are produced, which are used in the fourth step by methanogenic bacteria. In biochemical terms, the processes of fermentation and acetogenesis should be treated together. The types of the acidic compounds formed during the fermentation by the acidogenic bacteria are depending on many factors. These factors are temperature, pH, redox potential, the final products of hydrolysis (the types of the acidogenic reaction’s substrates), and the composition of acidogenic microbe population. The composition of the fermentation’s end products is determining the speed of acetogenesis. Fluctuations in the acetogenesis cause fluctuations in the next process, the methanogenesis, because as it has been mentioned earlier, the end products of the acetogenic bacteria are directly used by the methanogens. The carefully selected acidogenic microorganisms of Bioclean STP help the formation of proper, stable, and homogeneous end product composition, fast-metabolising acidogenic microbe population, and as a result of the above, stable, constant acetate-formation will be achieved. It helps to avoid the increase of Hydrogen’s partial pressure, which depresses the acetogenesis. The latter is responsible for the phenomenon when Propionic Acid, Butyric Acid, Ethanol and other foam causing compounds are formed instead of the Acetate.

From the final products of fermentation, methane is formed in two different methabolic pathways during the methanogenesis. The Hydrogen-utilizing methanogenic organisms produce methane using Hydrogen as electron acceptor, and Carbon Dioxide as electron donor, and the Acetoclastic methanogens break the acetate into Carbon Dioxide and Methane. Bioclean STP contains both hydrogen-utilizing and Acetoclastic methanogens, and besides that, the most important criteria during the selection of methanogenic species were the short generation time and the resistence against inhibitory and toxic factors. Summarizing: Bioclean STP enhances the speed and reduces the fluctuation of the process’s fourth phase.

2 ) Foam control

Foaming in a wastewater treatment plant’s digestion towers, and the operational problems due to that are caused by one of the following reasons:

– the quantity of filamentous bacteria count in the excess sludge part of the thickened sludge which is lifted into the digester is significantly high, and during their lysis, surfactants are released into the reactor causing foaming

– the digester is exposed to a toxic shock, which causes a significant cell lysis

– the fermentation and the acetogenesis are not working properly, there are significant fluctuations in the process.

Bioclean STP reduces the foaming of the reactor in each of the three cases, because:

– in case of foaming caused by the lysis of filamentous bacteria, the surfactants and lysed cells that cause the foaming are quickly decomposed by the extracellular esterase and lipase enzymes of the bacteria in Bioclean STP.

– the resistance against toxic and inhibitory loads is higher when the reactor is treated with Bioclean STP, and besides that, in case if constant treatment, the degradation of lysed cells, and surfactans that are released during cell lysis is fast.

Bioclean STP is stabilizing the fermentation and acetogenesis, so the amount of organic compounds that cause foaming are significantly reduced.

Bioclean TM Compost – Highly effective compost accelerator

Composting has been defined as the product of natural degradation of botanical and putrescible waste by the action of bacteria, fungi and other organisms in the presence of an adequate air supply. Composting has been used since man began to plant and harvest for food, when an association between waste products, plant growth and the harvest yield was realised. Different waste products have been used over the centuries that fertilise the soil through the breakdown of waste material known has composting. Although these products have been used extensively the processes involved were not clearly understood until recent years and even today the reactions in the compost pile though understood can be vague.

Features of Bioclean TM Compost:

Bioclean TM Compost contains naturally derived enzymes and saprophytic bacteria originally derived from soil which utilize only non-living organic matter as a food source. It is a unique combination of mesophilic and thermophilic bacteria, molds and yeasts, consisting different types of microbial cultures, all of which occur naturally in soil, but in very small numbers. These microorganisms are not harmful to either aquatic or land plants, birds, animals or humans and have been released all over the world into marine and fresh water lakes, ponds, rivers, municipal sewer lines, drains, septic systems and soil with complete ecological safety.

Benefits of Bioclean TM Compost:

Successful composting relies upon the right microorganism to biodegrade wastes. Bioclean TM Compost is a proprietary blend of high potency live bacterial cultures, enzymes and micronutrients, selected from nature to seed new compost piles with high numbers of environmentally beneficial organisms.

When Bioclean TM Compost is used as a bioseed, organic debris will typically be converted to a rich organic compost within 30 days.

Bioclean TM Lake/Pond Clarifier – Effective bioremediation of lakes and water bodies

The ecological status of water bodies can be determined by two main parameters – phosphorus content and chlorophyll content. Phosphorous is a limiting nutrient for algal growth, which cannot be fixed from atmosphere or any other source. Excessive phosphorus levels, encourages the growth of algae, which is reflected in chlorophyll values. The ecological status therefore can be determined from the concentration of these two factors. Based on phosphorous and Chlorophyll content the lakes are classified as follows.

Analytical Parameters for determining the trophic status of water bodies:

Trophic State
Phosphorus (µg/L)
Chlorophyll (µg/L)
Oligotrophic
4 – 10
1.0 – 2.5
Mesotrophic
10 – 35
2.5 – 8.0
Eutrophic
35 – 100
8.0 – 25.0
Hypertrophic
> 100
> 25.0

There are literally millions of different naturally occurring microbes in our world. We have found a way to isolate and create unique products from certain microbes to perform highly specific, beneficial tasks. The microbes in BiocleanTM Lake / Pond Clarifier help restore natural balance in situations where environmental factors have led to unstable and unhealthy water quality conditions.

Bioclean TM Aqua – Aquaculture, Total Pond Management solutions for the health of aquatic life

Bacteria are the primary decomposers of all organic waste. They have specific functions of degrading an enormous number of compounds both simple and complex. When the right strains are chosen they can even degrade toxic compounds that are man-made or those that are present in nature.

In aquaculture, massive quantities of organic compounds leach out from the feed into the pond water. These organic compounds may be rich in nitrate and phosphate, which disturbs the ecology of the pond by stimulating only certain type of life forms. The microbial communities become unstable. The toxicity of the pond goes up due to the incomplete decomposition of the organic matter. The discharge of faecal matter by the shrimp/fish into the pond adds to the toxicity of the water.

This deterioration of the water quality increases the culture’s susceptibility to stress and disease. The partially decomposed sludge starts breeding certain pathogenic bacteria viz. Vibrio cholera. High amount of toxic wastes induces blue green algae to thrive, and become unstable, the incidence of disease and stunted growth increases, and mortality rates soar.

BiocleanTM Aqua is a proprietary blend of carefully selected naturally occurring microorganisms, enzymes and growth stimulating factors. It is a balanced formula of upto 94 different microbial strains, which work synergistically to lower the toxicity level in the pond and create a healthier and more beneficial environment for fish, prawn and shrimp. The toxic pollutants are broken down to non-toxic by-products such as carbon dioxide and water. This is also evident when there will be a remarkable reduction in foul odours in the pond water.

Magic Gro – More crop, healthier plants

The soil supporting today’s agriculture activities is lacking sufficient microbial activity to promote healthy plant growth. This is due primarily to an over reliance on pesticides to control disease and insect infestation. These synthetic chemicals also destroy non-target organisms, namely the essential bacteria and microbes found in healthy soil. Beneficial microorganisms are necessary to promote healthy, vigorous plant growth. When microbial population is depleted the plant growth system becomes stressed giving rise to a myriad of problems.
