Cleaner Water. Lower Costs. A Better Environment.
Ballast water, used by ships to maintain stability during transits, is taken from coastal port areas that contain large amounts of organisms and sediments. Larger ships often carry millions of gallons of ballast water and discharge it at their next port of call.
Bilge water is also collected in the lowest part of the ship and must be pumped out to avoid sinking. This water contains oil, urine, detergents, solvents, chemicals, pitch, particles, and other materials.
While ballast and bilge water are necessary for proper function, their discharge causes a dilemma as millions of gallons of polluted water are dumped into the ocean. Across the globe, this wastewater has caused disruptions in the natural ecosystem, instigated economic crises, and even spread human diseases.
The PrO2 Solution
The PrO2 Series wastewater treatment system efficiently delivers large quantities of dissolved oxygen in a molecular state – no bubbles, no buoyancy, and incredible retention time.
Delivering up to 96% oxygen transfer efficiency, the PrO2 “wakes up” microbes and accelerates the natural breakdown of organic matter while also creating and preserving an odor-free environment.
Additionally, the PrO2 gives operators the ability to deliver and manage sufficient oxygen levels to consume up to 95% of organic waste, while reducing conventional aeration costs by up to 75%.
Though microbes occur naturally in wastewater treatment systems, assistance is often needed when the amount of waste overwhelms the bacteria’s capacity to degrade harmful contaminants.
Greener Planet Systems’ series of bioaugmentation products contain a blend of five to seven Bacillus strains in various ratios, combined with a proprietary blend of micronutrients that enhances the natural bacteria’s ability to degrade wastewater contaminants.
