Research around the world has determined and documented that different blends of bacteria degrade organic matter at different rates. In STPs/ETPs the most common bacteria are ones that arrive with the fecal matter. Most waste treatment plants are designed around the BOD loading formulas for the fecal bacteria, even though these species of microbes are amongst the least efficient degraders.
The OS STPs are designed around the metabolism rates of specially engineered blend of microbes and enzymes which are specifically chosen due to their high efficiency of degrading and stabilizing organic waste. The addition of beneficial microbes shortens the treatment cycle and increases the efficiency of the STP. It also reduces nuisances like foul odor and heavy sludge deposits and also makes the plant more stable and ready for shock loads.
We use specially engineered media to enable high biomass concentration which in turn enables the use of a smaller aeration basin and also reduces the sludge volume.
