Natural Environmental Systems, LLC produces all-natural, environmentally friendly, live microbial-based products utilizing naturally occurring beneficial bacteria to eat and digest waste and other organic contaminants in a wide array of commercial, industrial, agricultural and residential applications, providing a biological alternative to hazardous chemicals and caustic solvents.
BIOLOGICAL WASTEWATER TREATMENT PRODUCTS
Biological Wastewater Treatment involves the use of microorganisms (bacteria) to naturally degrade organic waste resulting in BOD reduction, COD reduction and wastewater odor control.
The bacteria in our biological wastewater treatment products are specifically selected to handle the degradation and removal of a wide variety of wastes found in municipal wastewater, lift stations, industrial wastewater, pulp and paper wastewater, food processing wastewater, petrochemical wastewater and even animal waste wastewater. Additionally, we have special bacterial formulations to address specific needs of a wastewater treatment plant such as bulking and foaming reduction, filamentous bacteria control and phosphate reduction.
While all each formulation contains different select groups of microbes to work in each specific environment, they all achieve the following biological wastewater treatment goals:
- Reduces labor time
- Enhances BOD/COD removal
- Effective and easy to use
- Degrades wide range of organic waste
- Contains no chemicals
- Increases system efficiency
- Reduces sludge build-up
- Reduces hydrogen sulfide cost
Municipal Wastewater Treatment
Municipal wastewater plants face the constant challenge of combating solids, sludge, malodors, organic buildup, and grease. These can be defined as undesirable levels of BOD, H2S, TSS, FOG, and poor DO stability. Municipalities face these challenges due to older, outdated facilities, which are over the designed capacity, along with a wide range of residential, commercial and industrial waste streams. The quick fix attempt of using chemicals or manual labor as wastewater treatment measures can be costly and inefficient. Our microbial formulation contains specifically selected strains of microbes to target organic wastes common is wastewater treatment plants to prevent solids/sludge accumulation at pump stations, in sewer lines, and improve the plant efficiency.
Industrial Wastewater Treatment
Our industrial wastewater treatment product is a specially formulated blend of bacteria that aids in the removal of various contaminants in industrial wastewater systems. Because it is highly effective, economical and environmentally safe, it continues to provide the ideal solutions of industrial wastewater treatment due to the ever changing demands and regulations. The naturally occurring bacteria work by digesting organic waste, preventing malodorous situations, preventing sludge build-up with reduced BOD, while not harming any necessary end products.
This formulation has also demonstrated vast success in the degradation of petroleum hydrocarbons.As oil spillages occur, water systems become increasingly contaminated by petroleum hydrocarbons presenting undesirable environmental conditions.
Food Processing Wastewater Treatment
NE 2000FP is a natural bacterial consortium formulated to meet the demand of maintaining grease traps, drains, plumbing lines, sewers and wastewater pre-treatment facilities in food processing plants to keep them free from blockages caused by fat, oil and grease (FOG) accumulations and reducing BOD. These benefits will greatly increase the amount of time between scheduled grease trap pumping/cleaning; keep effluent well below the discharge limits and yield a drastic reduction in the overall grease cap and solids build up on the bottom of the trap.
Pulp and Paper Wastewater Treatment
NE 2000PP is a proprietary blend of different wastewater microbes developed to address the daily challenge of wastewater treatment in the pulp and paper industry. Companies may find it difficult in allocating capital to address the ever-tightening environmental restrictions; therefore these professionals are expected to do more with less by squeezing every ounce of performance out of the current wastewater treatment system. The diversity of the bacteria strains makes this product more efficient as the bacteria selected will address the removal/reductions of cellulosic solids, resin acids, sludge and BOD.
Specialty Wastewater Treatment Bacteria
The quality of a water system can be drastically improved by introducing NE 2000PHR into the con¬taminated system. NE 2000PHR works by populating the contaminated water system with naturally occurring bacteria strains that absorb the phosphate. By changing the respiration level - anaerobic to aerobic - this causes the bacteria to ingest the oxygen forcing the phosphate to fall out and separate, which facilitates removal from the system.
Foaming and Bulking Control
Foaming and bulking do to excessive filamentous bacteria can create many problems in a wastewater treatment facility. Foams and solids on the surface of aeration and settling tanks may decrease oxygen transfer efficiencies; prevent cooling of high water temperature effluents and trap waste gases - all indicative of poor wastewater treatment. The organisms usually responsible for this unsightly mess are filamentous bacteria liked Nocardia and Microthrix. Controlling these filaments by chemical means is only a temporary fix as these organisms will return. NE 2000FB is a selectively chosen bacterium consortium formulated to reduce foaming and bulking and promote better settling of sludge by destabilizing filamentous organisms, while also reducing fog levels, a key food sources for filamentous bacteria.
Cold Weather Bacteria
Biological treatment of wastewater can be negatively effected due to uncontrollable factors such as weather. Growth of microbial populations occurs at temperatures between 45F and 140F, however between 70F and 90F the bacteria achieve optimum growth and are most effective. For this reason we have developed a microbial blend containing a bacterial consortium that is more tolerant of lower water temperatures. This cold weather bacteria formulation addresses the issue of poor bacterial growth and enhances the waste degradation process in cold weather climates.
