EM America provides clients with specifically targeted applications of EM Technology® that are able to dramatically reduce odors caused by putrefied wastes. The picture on the right shows the walls of a lift station that once were black and now look like new cement. This dramatic change was achieved simply through the application of EM-1® Waste Treatment. This effect happens throughout the entire collection system when EM Technology® is properly applied in the collection system. Timing, flow rates, system design, and management are all considered in developing an application program for atreatment plant and collection system (sewer).
EM-1® Waste Treatment has a unique ability to stabilize complex proteins through a shift from anaerobic putrefaction cycles to a fermentative cycle. Hair and plastics can play havoc with the balancing of an anaerobic digester by creating over-thickening of the scum layer. Hair is primarily composed of complex proteins, which have been historically difficult to stabilize to a point at which the biological breakdown will occur in a timely manner. EM-1® Waste Treatment will assist by accelerating protein stabilization.
EM-1® Waste Treatment is applied at various stages in the treatment process for optimum results. The application site and dosage amounts are dependent on the type of treatment system, the age of the system, and the goals of the parties involved. Application rates can vary from 1: 1000 to 1: 40,000. The average rate into a treatment system is around 1: 10,000 (based on daily flow). The EM-1® is activated and injected at various points throughout the collection system on a steady flow.
The microbes in EM-1® Waste Treatment secretesubstances such as organic acids, and antioxidants (chelated minerals and vitamins) when in contact with . In wastewater applications, EM-1® assists in shifting conditions from putrefactive to non-putrefactive. This unique ability enables EM-1® to transition the wastewater collection system into a pretreatment system, thereby lowering the loading demand on wastewater treatment . Essentially, consistent applications of EM Technology® into the collection system will increase the capacity of the treatment plant, decrease the operation costs, and improve the efficiency of the entire system.
Since every treatment system is in itself a separate ecosystem, EM America will custom-design each application for a wastewater treatment system after an assessment of the entire system.
