Hydro Biodigesters

Eliminate odors and wastes from wastewater treatment systems with Hydro Biodigesters

What are Biodigesters?

Biodigesters are a combination of naturally occurring bacteria, enzymes, micro and macronutrients, available in liquid or dry formula. When combined with water, they effectively eliminate offensive odors and organic wastes found in numerous environments.

How do Biodigesters work?

Enzymes are first selected to target the undesired substance (substrate). Micro and macro nutrients are also added so that a ready source of food is available for the bacteria, enabling them to start reproducing immediately. Then, in a process called Step Degradation, the enzymes use chemical reactions to break the substances down into fats and simple sugars, making them easier to digest and making them the bacteria's new primary food source. Eventually, the hungry bacteria overwhelms and consumes the substrate completely.

Why use Biodigesters?

Wastewater filtration systems alone cannot remove odors. Historically, most other bacteria and chemicals used to treat wastewater release H2S gas into the atmosphere, which not only smells bad, but is also dangerous.

Ozone gas (O3) produced by ozone generators has also been introduced into wastewater to kill odor-causing bacteria. But not only is ozone corrosive, it is also simply not effective on its own, due to its short half-life. Ozone is typically supplemented by using other corrosive oxidizers such as chlorine and hydrogen peroxide. But while these substances may help to reduce odor, they do nothing to fight against the contaminates that cause the odor in the first place.

Biodigesters not only work faster and more effectively, but are also much safer and environmentally friendly. The FDA lists Biodigesters as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe). They clean the inner-workings of the system, including the coalescing plates, pipes, and valves. They also target the solids in sumps and tanks, eliminating the oils and greases that coagulate at the bottom. All byproducts are harmless and odorless, which means no costly waste-hauling fees.

How do I use Biodigesters?

Wastewater systems with odor problems should be disinfected 48 hours prior to dosing with Biodigesters.

Liquid biodigesters can be used at a rate of 1 gallon to 500 gallons of water for initial cleaning. For regular maintenance on a wastewater system, 3.5 oz per 500 gallons is recommended. Small, hourly doses work better than larger daily quantities. To help with that, check out our Automatic Liquid Dosing System.

Dry formula biodigesters can use 16 oz. for every 1000 gallons of water. Application of dry formula is as follows:

  1. Mix a 16 oz. package with gallons of warm (90°) water.
  2. Allow the solution to sit for one hour.
  3. Introduce the solution into all water holding bodies within the system.

Under what conditions do Biodigesters best perform?

  • Dissolved oxygen: Levels of at least 3ppm are recommended. An aeration system will normally fulfill this requirement.
  • pH level: A range of 5.5 to 9.5 is allowable. Optimum growth rates will occur from 6.6 to 7.4.
  • Temperature: Temperatures of 70 - 90° will provide the optimum conditions for growth. Anywhere between 45 to 150° will allow the product to remain active. Sustained temperatures above 150° will cause cell death. Below 45° cell growth will slow and stop but this will not kill the cells.
  • Nitrogen: Hydro Biodigesters require at least 5ppm nitrogen. Reproduction rates will be shortened at more than 20ppm nitrogen.
  • Salinity: Hydro Biodigesters have been proven effective in both marine and fresh water environments.
  • Toxic shock: Hydro Biodigesters have proven resistant to toxic chemical shock including sudden influxes of petroleum hydrocarbons, chlorinated compounds, cyanides, and heavy metals.
  • NOTE: When chemicals of known bactericidal concentrations are present in the wastewater contact Hydro Engineering for consultation before treatment.

Where can I use Biodigesters?

  • Rendering plants and waste lagoons - treat waste streams to control all types of organic wastes while substantially reducing odors.
  • Aquaculture - treat in place to consume organics, nitrates, reduce bottom solids, reduce algae, and to control nitrogen and phosphorus, without harming fish or aquatic plants.
  • Surface cleaning - Eliminates oil and grease left on surfaces from prior wash operations, even porous surfaces like concrete.
  • Oil and Hydrocarbon removal in; grease traps, oil/water separators, oil and fuel spills, lift stations, trenches, pipes, tanks and sumps.
  • In situ remediation - treat by flooding or injection to breakdown organics. An excellent treatment for animal stalls and paddocks to eliminate odors and restore drainage through organically impacted soil.
  • Anywhere odor problems exist: septic tanks, settling tanks, oil coalescing systems, waste holding tanks, evaporation ponds and more!

Hydro Biodigesters are the answer to foul odor control. In addition, continued treatment will produce a noticeable water clarity improvement and long-term system maintenance will be reduced.

Stop using expensive, dangerous, and ineffective chemicals for wastewater treatment. Contact us for the safe, economical, and productive solution to wastewater management. Hydro Biodigesters are the answer.
