Wastewater from industrial applications can be complex and in addition the load can vary tremendously throughout the day. Detergents used during cleaning processes can also affect the composition of the wastewater and be toxic for the treatment system. BIO-BLOK® uses attached growth process which helps protect the treatments system from the variations and toxic conditions, enabling a robust and reliable system.
Often industrial wastewater is highly contaminated and very variable in both concentration and flow. The microorganisms growing on the BIO-BLOK® are protected by a biofilm which is more resistant to shock loads.
