BioKix Wastewater Lagoon Treatment Enhanced with Micronutrients & Biostimulants best treats winery and brewery wastewater Lagoons.
The manufacture of wine, beer, and spirits is a water-intensive process. Two thirds of the water used during the wine making or brewing process goes into wastewater lagoons and have extremely high BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand) from bottling side spillage, and typically include solids like seeds, stalks, yeast, and sedimentation waste, which is expressed as Total Suspended Solids, or TSS.
Washwater from the cleaning of floors, equipment, pipes, and vessels may contain cleaning chemicals that can disrupt the biological breakdown in a wastewater treatment process. Brewers, winemakers, and distillers would undoubtedly prefer not to focus on wastewater, but it is a critical part of doing business. Insufficient wastewater treatment can cause permit violations and interruptions in production—both potentially costly outcomes.
Gas Reduction Through Bio-augmentation
Wastewater lagoons are inherently anaerobic (lack oxygen). The bacteria in these lagoons needs oxygen to decompose waste and whatever degradation occurs will occur under septic conditions which convert hydrogen and sulfur to form hydrogen sulfide and transform carbon into methane. The strains of bacillus in all BioKix products do not need oxygen to decompose waste quickly and they feast on organics like sulfur and carbon.
Eliminate Lagoon Shrinkage Through Bio-augmentation
Waste will only partially decompose on its own. What does not decompose either floats and forms a solid crust or sinks to the bottom and stops decomposing. Partially decomposed waste will also stick to the sides of lagoons. Deep accumulations of sludge on the lagoon floors and sides require frequent removal by tractors or the lagoon will become too small to hold the amount of waste coming in. Those removed solids have to be stored elsewhere. Bio-augmented lagoons can be fully pumped out and the liquid content used to irrigate and fertilize crops.
