Bioremediation service provider FBF Organics says it can provide a simple, cost-effective and environment-friendly solution to the wastewater problems the country is currently facing.

The national sewage and effluent infrastructure is currently under stress from overloading and an ageing infrastructure that is in critical need of upgrading and refurbishment.
Essentially, FBF uses a natural product and fermentation technology to improve biological wastewater processes.

How It Works
Biological treatment technology involves the use of bacteria and other micro-organisms to degrade or remove contaminants from wastewater. The FBF Organics programme enhances this rate of degradation or decomposition through bioactivation.
This is the stimulation of existing micro-organisms by speeding up the metabolic activity. This increased metabolic activity is achieved by inoculating effluent ponds with activated effector molecules produced through the fermentation of a natural product in a specially designed bioreactor on site.

Tap water and the bioactivator are continuously fed into the bioreactor, allowing for regulated and effective management of wastewater treatment works (WWTWs).
FBF's solution could improve the bioremediation of wastewater, not only in municipal situations but also in agricultural and industrial applications.
The company has been successful in improving the performance of WWTWs in a wide variety of industries, such as tanneries, distilleries, fiberboards, sugar and paper mills, as well as on municipal sewage sites.
The FBF product has proven to be especially effective in treatment technologies including activated sludge, biofilters, anaerobic digesters, sludge lagoons, oxidation ponds, septic tanks, land fills and rivers.

Benefits of the Bioactivator
The primary benefit that FBF Organics offers is the increased capacity of WWTWs. The increased capacity means that the WWTW's ability to handle shock loads is also increased significantly.
Thus, the prevention of overflowing effluent and future sludge build-up is easily achieved. The product works best in overloaded systems.
FBF also allows clients the opportunity to be more environment friendly and improve their carbon footprint through the effective management of their WWTWs.
The FBF product has the potential to improve river water quality in South Africa and contribute to the achievement of legislation standards. It offers easy installation and operation, as well as being affordable, making it an attractive solution.
