BEFORE: Disruptive filaments caused this digester to overflow with foam.
A municipal wastewater treatment plant in Kansas called with an aerobic digester overflowing with foam. This digester had produced minimal methane for over two years, and within a week of the foaming issue, lost all methane production. The plant first sent Aquafix samples of the foam and mixed liquor, where our lab identified multiple species of disruptive filaments. The plant then added our Foam Buster at the aeration basin along with Biogas1 in the anaerobic digester. Within two weeks the digester stopped foaming and saw record methane production.
