CONSUMES INORGANIC NITROGEN i.e. AMMONIA, NITRATE AND NITRITE IN MUNICIPAL AND INDUSTRIAL TREATMENT PLANTS

EC-2556 is formulated to...

Remove nitrogen from wastewater rather than converting it to another form.

Significantly reduce ammonia levels, typically 40-50% within 24-48 hours.

Enhance removal of organic nitrogen i.e. amino acids, proteins, purines, pyrimidines, nucleic acids etc.

Increase wastewater treatment efficiency by at least 50%.

Reduce plant upsets resulting from shock.

Eliminate expensive surcharges due to high TKN discharge levels.

EC-2556 removes nitrogen from wastewater, as opposed to  converting it  from ammonia to nitrate or nitrite.

THE PROCESS

EC-2556 bacteria are heterotrophs and utilize organic carbon as as an energy. During the cleanup process, overall nitrogen removal occurs through three separate mechanisms...

1. The bacteria strains are formulated to attack a wide range of organic chemicals and, as a result, they have a significantly higher carbon uptake when compared to bacteria found in conventional WWTP's. This increase in carbon uptake results in a corresponding increase in nitrogen uptake.  Since ammonia is available as a nitrogen source, ammonia consumption is increased and, as a result, ammonia levels, in the discharged water, are reduced.

2. When the system DO levels decrease to a critical stage, the bacteria utilize nitrite/nitrate for respiration. This results in lower nitrogen levels.

3. When the system is ammonia deficient, the bacteria utilize nitrite and nitrate for growth purposes.

PROCESS COMPARISON

NITRIFICATION EC-2556
Requires longer retention time & larger tanks Requires relatively short retention time, smaller tanks, cost effective
Temperature dependent Effective over a broad temperature range
pH dependent (pH 7.5 or higher) Less dependent on pH (effective pH 6 - pH 8)
Ammonia reduction is NOT coupled with BOD/COD reduction Ammonia, nitrite and nitrate digestion is coupled with BOD/COD reduction.
Sensitive to toxic organic compounds Consumes toxic organic compounds
Ammonia is oxidized in the presence of oxygen Ammonia is not oxidized - oxygen requirement is lower

APPLICATION RATES - FACULTATIVE SYSTEMS
For facultative lagoon systems, application rates are based on the lagoon surface area:

 Days 1 through 3  20 kg. /10,000 m2 / Day
 Day 4+  2 kg. / 10,000 m2/ Day

 

APPLICATION RATES - ANAEROBIC SYSTEMS
For anaerobic lagoons, application rates are based on lagoon volume.

 <200,000 Litres  1 kg. - 2x / week / 10,000 Litres
 >200,000 Litres  0.5 kg. - 1x / day / 20,000 Litres

NOTE: For lagoons in cold climates, commence program when the water temperature is at least 50F.
