Industrial Water & Wastes Digest has published a Probiotic Solutions® article, “Use of Biostimulants & Buffers for Upset Recovery at Paper Mill Wastewater System.”
Two specific Probiotic Solutions liquid bioremediation products were used to address process upsets at a paper mill in China. The products involved were Bio Energizer (BE)—a scientific formulation of organic acids, buffers, natural biological stimulants, micronutrients and energy systems—and Micatrol (MT), a specialized product that uses organic acid as a substrate to buffer wastewater microbial life. Both BE and MT are complexed with the proprietary Micro Carbon Technology (MCT), a process that converts a soft, humic material into extremely small oxygen-rich carbon molecules. The MCT process results in a carbon source that is an ultra-efficient carrier—due to the micro-carbon molecule’s low molecular weight, greater specific surface area and higher cation exchange capacity—to deliver readily bioavailable nutrients to microorganisms.
In this trial, BE and MT were applied to the biological treatment system of a large-scale paper mill to manage the hydraulic loading from new upstream processes that led to a system upset.
