Wastewater Treatments for the Food Processing Industry
EcoCatalysts provides effective, economically beneficial and environmentally friendly treatments for wastewater in the food processing industry. Our non-toxic treatments are recognised globally as an alternative solution to harsh chemicals for the advanced treatment of water, soils and air.
We offer a range of high-performance bio-organic catalysts to provide the food processing industry with effective wastewater management.
Our bio-organic catalysts are unique and are categorised according to four key actions.
- Biologically-derived catalysts that result in solubilising organic matter
- Surface-modifying compounds that increase dissolved oxygen
- Carbon activation platforms that self-organise the components for a more efficient biological reaction
- Supplements and trace elements for a healthier bacterial metabolism
Elimination of fats, oils, greases and odour
EcoCatalysts has designed the EcoCatalyst bio-organic catalyst specifically for the elimination of fats, oils and greases that cause blockages in drains, collection and septic systems. Our EcoCatalyst bio-organic catalysts eradicate odour and maintain free-flow in:
- Grease traps
- Garbage disposals
- Wet wells
- Pump stations
- Septic systems
EcoCatalyst rapidly solubilises organic contaminants, including fats, oils and greases, and aids filamentous bacteria control. Our bio-organic catalyst eliminates hazardous gases and noxious odours and use of our EcoCatalyst bio-organic catalysts in sewers, lagoons and aeration tanks will increase the amount of dissolved oxygen.
Our EcoCatalyst bio-organic catalysts are a cost-effective solution for wastewater treatment in food processing plants, municipal reticulation systems and industrial and commercial cleaning.
Application of bio-organic catalysts
Dilation rates vary depending on water flow volumes and turbulence; for metered pumps, 1ppm of EcoCatalyst can be used in high-flow collection systems and a higher concentration of EcoCatalyst is recommended under low-flow conditions.
Applications with power washers and hoses require 30ml of EcoCatalyst to 4l of water, with 30ml of EcoCatalyst to 1l of water needed for hand sprayers and water buckets.
In applications where drains or grease caps are present, we advise that EcoCatalyst is injected through a high-pressure spray system, or injected so that it takes advantage of the location’s hydrodynamics.
Environmentally friendly bio-organic wastewater treatment
Occupational, health, safety and environment (OHSE) concerns can be alleviated with our bio-organic treatments as their properties include:
In contrast with the limited oxygen transfer of conventional organic catalysts, our bio-organic catalysts are self-organising and create microbubbles with high oxygen transfer characteristics.
EcoCatalysts’ bio-organic catalysts are made from a plant- and mineral-derived fermentation supernatant and have a non-iconic surfactant and stabilisers.
We provide bio-organic catalysts that can be used for a range of wastewater treatment applications, including:
- Elimination of fat, oil and grease issues
- Reduced power cost in aeration
- Reduced sludge volumes
- Reduced BOD, TSS and nitrogen discharges
- Odour elimination in plant, sludge and surrounds
Green and sustainable technologies
EcoCatalysts was formed on World Environment Day in 1996 and is an investment vehicle for green and sustainable technologies. We continue to focus investments on bio-organic catalysts, sustainable agriculture, organic fertiliser and renewable energy.
