Technical Questions

Seed sludge, waste-activated sludge, and undigested primary sludge are terms commonly used in wastewater treatment and are related to the different types of sludge produced during the treatment process. Each of these types of sludge has distinct characteristics and origins.

Seed sludge, also known as activated sludge, is a crucial component of the activated sludge process in wastewater treatment. It serves as the microbial inoculum or "seed" for the biological treatment of wastewater.

It is typically a mixture of microorganisms, including bacteria and protozoa, that have been previously acclimated to the wastewater treatment environment. These microorganisms help break down and consume organic matter in the wastewater.

Seed sludge is typically taken from a well-operating wastewater treatment plant and added to the influent wastewater to kickstart the biological treatment process.

Waste-activated sludge (WAS) is the solid biomass that accumulates in the secondary treatment process of a wastewater treatment plant, particularly in the aeration tank or biological reactor.

This sludge consists of microorganisms (biomass) that have grown and multiplied while metabolizing organic pollutants in the wastewater. It also includes some residual organic matter and inorganic particles.

WAS needs to be periodically removed from the treatment system to prevent excessive accumulation and maintain the efficiency of the treatment process. It can be further treated or dewatered before disposal or reuse.

Undigested primary sludge is the solid material that settles out in the primary sedimentation tanks of a wastewater treatment plant. It is one of the primary byproducts of the primary treatment stage.

Primary sludge primarily consists of organic matter, inorganic solids, and suspended particles that settle out during the initial treatment process. It has not undergone the biological treatment that activated sludge receives.

Unlike waste-activated sludge, which is biologically active, undigested primary sludge is less biodegradable. It typically has a higher organic content and may require additional treatment processes, such as anaerobic digestion or dewatering, before disposal or beneficial use.

In summary, seed sludge is the microbial culture used to initiate the biological treatment of wastewater, waste-activated sludge is the biomass produced during secondary treatment, and undigested primary sludge is the solids separated during the primary treatment stage.

It is a nonpathogenic bacteria. Do not cause disease.

Acclimatization is the process in which an individual organism adjusts to a change in its environment such as a change is altitude, temperature, humidity or pH, food allowing it to maintain performance across the range of environmental conditions.

No. TDS can be reduced by BactaServe.

You need to add DAP and Urea in both of cow dung and BactaServe case. Analyse the Ammonical Nitrogen & Phosphate content of the effluent. If it exists in the ratio of 100:5:1 - BOD:N:P then additional urea or DAP is not required to be added. If the effluent is deficient, then add UREA/DAP as per above formula.

This totally depends upon type of effluent, daily plant capacity, effluent characteristics, type of biological process available in ETP, biological tank capacity.

For lab scale:- Sample provided can be used for plate count and also used to detect the group of bacterias. From that you can authenticate our product. This much sample cannot be used on lab scale for treatability studies.

Yes. It reduces odour completely.


General Questions

Wastewater treatment with bioculture is an environmentally-friendly process that uses naturally occurring microorganisms to break down and remove contaminants from wastewater. This approach harnesses the power of beneficial bacteria to purify water, making it safe for discharge or reuse.

Bioculture, a mixture of selected microorganisms, is introduced to the wastewater. These microbes consume and digest organic matter, pollutants, and pathogens, effectively purifying the water. The process involves biodegradation, adsorption, and transformation of pollutants.

Using bioculture in wastewater treatment offers several advantages, including cost-effectiveness, sustainability, reduced chemical usage, improved water quality and compliance with environmental regulations.

Yes, bioculture is a safe and eco-friendly solution. It relies on natural processes and reduces the need for harmful chemicals in wastewater treatment. It promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria that occur naturally in the environment.

Yes, bioculture is adaptable for various wastewater treatment applications, including industrial and municipal settings. It can effectively treat wastewater from factories, municipalities, agriculture and more.

The treatment duration varies depending on the specific wastewater characteristics and the bioculture used. It can take anywhere from a few hours to several days to achieve the desired level of purification.

Bioculture can effectively remove a wide range of contaminants, including organic matter, suspended solids, nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus), heavy metals, and some toxic chemicals. It can also reduce pathogenic microorganisms.

Yes, bioculture treatment is often more cost-effective due to lower operational and maintenance costs, reduced chemical usage, and the potential for energy savings. It's a sustainable and efficient solution for wastewater treatment.

Yes, bioculture can be used in conjunction with other treatment methods like physical filtration, chemical treatment, and UV disinfection to enhance the overall efficiency of wastewater treatment processes.

It's important to carefully manage the dosage and conditions for bioculture treatment to avoid overdosing or failure. Proper monitoring and adjustments ensure the best results and prevent potential issues.

Yes, there are various types of bioculture tailored to specific wastewater treatment requirements. Different bioculture formulations are available for different applications and contaminants.

To get started with bioculture wastewater treatment, you can reach out to bioculture providers or consultants who can assess your specific needs, recommend a suitable bioculture product and assist with the implementation and maintenance of the system.
