Intensification of wastewater treatment plants

We reduce or wholly eliminate the need to construct new WWTP buildings

It ensures the intensification of wastewater treatment plants that are operated at the same time; however, they are hydraulically or materially overloaded or their treatment processes show low efficiency.

By using modern technologies we reduce or wholly eliminate the need to build new WWTP buildings. Our solutions reduce the costs of WWTP reconstruction and intensification and shorten the implementation time.

Intensification methods

Dosage

The dosage for B-CAT depends on the amount and composition of the organic matter processed in the biogas plant. The usual dose for B-CAT is 2 – 4% of the daily volume of organic matter applied to the biogas plant’s fermenter.

Intensification of biogas production

In cooperation with SKANSKA, a.s. we offer a method for intensifying the decomposition of the organic substances used for biogas production. It is a biotechnology that enables the fermented biomass to be utilized at a greater efficiency and thus increase biogas production by using a biologically active biocatalyst solution (B-CAT).

ABESS, s.r.o. is the know-how provider supplying the B-CAT technology.

B-CAT production

B-CAT is produced by fermenting a specific organic substrate in water under set process conditions (temperature, pressure, residence time). B-CAT is a colourless and odourless liquid. B-CAT is a mixture of enzymes and non-pathogenic microorganisms. B-CAT is a safe, hygienic dilution and has been approved for use by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic (valid for the EU). B-CAT production is continuous and takes place under set conditions.

B-CAT is manufactured in production facilities that are designed individually depending on the requisite output and location conditions. ABESS, s.r.o. provides the B-CAT production equipment, controls its operation and the quality of the final B-CAT solution.

Construction advantages

  • B-CAT accelerates and strengthens the biochemical processes during organic matter decomposition, it even enhances the degradability of organic substances that are not easy to break down, such as cellulose.
  • It intensifies the enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulose.
  • Better use of the biomass’ energy potential brings significant effects, namely higher decomposition efficiency of the organic substances, improved stability of the fermentation process and, in particular, higher biogas production.
  • The resulting effect of applying B-CAT in biogas plants is an increase in biogas production, usually by 5 – 15% compared to a conventional fermentation process.
  • B-CAT also reduces the production of odorous substances and their release to the air.

Technologies

  • ABESS, s.r.o. can supply biogas plant operators with B-CAT production equipment.
  • We then carry out a trial run to verify the method is effective in the particular biogas plant.
  • After assessing the test run results, there is a transition to permanent operation and the commercial delivery of the technology.
  • The method costs approximately 35% of the increase in the biogas plant’s economic efficiency.
