EBS Products

Bioaugmentation 

Bioaugmentation, or the addition of supplemental bacteria, is often used as a reactive response to an upset or to address a myriad of wastewater problems including incomplete BOD reduction and excessive solids carryover due to the loss of biomass. EBS offers a wide variety of effective bacterial formulations, in both dry and liquid forms to meet clients’ specific needs. These formulations are specifically developed for applications in the pulp and paper, chemical processing, refining, and food and beverage industries. Products are both cost-effective and easily applied.

BAC™ & BAC-2™

Bacterial Acceleration Chamber

The patented EBS Bacterial Acceleration Chamber (BAC) unit and our second-generation BAC2 unit are designed to acclimate and grow 100 to 1000 times the bacterial population of the dry product in 24 hours. While the original BAC units are single-stage units, BAC2 units are two-stage units that provide higher growth rates. The size of the BAC units ranges from 15 – 300 gallons, allowing for optimal dosage application rates. These units can accept a variety of dry product quantities from 1 – 25 pounds per batch and produce up to four batches per day, or the equivalent of up to 5000 pounds of the typical dry product.  The BAC unit technology generates high levels of bacteria daily and the result is greater application success.

Carbon Sources

Carbon Sources

A reduction in BOD loading to the WWTP can have adverse effects on the microorganisms. The health of the biomass depends on a consistent source of loading to prevent endogenous decay. The average system loses approximately 3-5% of its biomass per day without adequate BOD.

MicroCarb™ 

Industrial Wastewater Treatment

  • Non-hazardous and non-flammable source of BOD to establish, re-establish, and/or sustain healthy biomass during an outage or system start-up.
  • Aids in Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR)
  • Product is available in tote or bulk quantities

CarboBOOST

Industrial Wastewater Treatment

  • Carbon and nutrient source intended for use with the BAC2.
  • BAC2 units allow for the growth of 100-1000X of the dry product.
  • Product is available in totes.
Nutrients

Nutrients

Maintaining a healthy biomass requires the appropriate blend of macronutrients and micronutrients. The theoretical amount of nitrogen and phosphorus required for new cell synthesis is dependent on the growth conditions of the system. The rule of thumb is to provide an influent ratio of 100:5:1 (BOD:N:P). EBS provides a variety of supplemental nutrient products to enhance system performance efficiency.

MacroGroCustom Formulated Nutrient Blends
