logo aquaproxOpening a market for natural, non-pollutant and non-hazardous alternatives is the main objective of AQUAPROX.

AQUAPROX is interested in the specific demand of industrial operators for natural products whilst remaining environmentally aware.

Thanks to its know-how in the biotechnologies field, AQUAPROX develops and markets natural products, nutrients, and micro-organisms with diverse industrial applications (for the agrofood and chemicals sectors, the paper-making industry, etc.).

Called “white biotechnologies”, these biotechnologies are used for industrial purposes in the fabrication, transformation or breakdown of molecules thanks to natural enzymatic or fermentation processes and as an alternative to chemical processes in order to foster economic savings and sustainable development.

AQUAPROX has developed a wide variety of cultures since it was founded, and in particular developed the ²Optibiom®² process, which enables the biomass to be amplified before it is shipped to the plant for efficient treatment of the effluents.

The AQUAPROX, bioreactor, a mycetes amplifier associated with the Optibiom range’s products, enables growth to be controlled  and optimum production of amplified micro-organisms.

Industry concerned
Sugar cane refinery

Issue to be dealt with

Increasing the wastewater plant’s capacity to respond to a COD load experiencing a 50 % increase (continuous operation of the plant) whilst complying with the discharge standards.

The plant includes an anaerobic stage followed by an aerobic stage.

AQUAPROX solution proposed
Optibiom®4470 fungal treatment in the aeration tank.

trichoderma

 

 

 

 

Operational results
Increase in the COD efficiency of the aerobic stage from 43 to 60%. Reduction in the produced sludge volume by 42%.

Economic results
No investment outlays for the customer and operational savings. Treatment using fungal bioaugmentation is made profitable by the gain made on the sludge process.

Environmental results
Discharge in accordance with the requirements of the Prefectural operational order.

Conclusion
The implementation of biotechnologies enables a qualitative gain (treatment efficiencies) and also a quantitative gain (operational savings).
