RESOURCE RECOVERY & WASTE-TO-ENERGY PROGRAM
The specialized bacteria that converts various wastes into energy are used in the OAT (Optimized Anaerobic Treatment) Process of Anaerobic Wastewater Treatment.
Environmental Impact Benefits:
- Waste volumes are reduced,
- Waste disposal creates useful energy,
- Waste disposal actually pays for itself with a positive return on investment,
- Wastes represent a renewable energy source because they are a byproduct of human and animal life.
The OAT Process In General
The OAT is a cutting edge technology. U.S. Patent No. 5,630,942 was recently awarded to the process. The captive bacteria population of the fixed growth bacteria used by the OAT process is 5 times greater per unit volume than the suspended growth bacteria found in conventional digesters. The product of several efficiency increases is 2 x 4 x 2 x 2 x 2 or approximately 64 times. The details of efficiency improvements will be supplied upon the execution of a confidentiality agreement.
Wastes that can be treated include dairy waste, swine waste, ocean kelp, seaweed and agriculture wastes such as rice hull, grain debris, and silage, municipal and industrial wastewater. Additionally, type 0 and 1 solid wastes (sawdust, cardboard, paper and cartons) are processed when fed in slurry form. Existing treatment plants with conventional anaerobic digesters can be upgraded to enhanced energy production facilities with positive return on investment.
This is the one and only wastewater, biological, anaerobic treatment process that utilizes:
- Thermophilic Bacteria
- Attached Growth Bacteria
- Two-Phase Digestion
- Staged Treatment
- Flow Recirculation
- Nutrient Feed
- Computerized Process Control
