At Aquafix, our eagerness for fixing every problem in the wide world of wastewater means we encounter some of the strangest situations water can offer. In this new series, Unique Applications, we look at some of our most stand out issues and most inventive solutions.

MBBR (moving bed bioreactors) use additional media within the wastewater plants to increase the biofilm and speed COD removal rates. A facility that processes canola oil outgrew their wastewater process and was violating effluent COD discharge permits. In addition, during slow times he MBBR’s had a tendency for Nocardia foam.

Treatability testing by Aquafix Laboratories determined the addition of our Qwik-Zyme L and Qwik-Zyme P into the front end of their process could speed the breakdown of COD. They have noticed a 20-30% improvement in effluent COD.

Products Used: Qwik-Zyme L and Qwik-Zyme P
