A pond is a stagnant water reservoir used for various purposes such as bathing, drinking, and washing by humans and animals. These ponds serve as an essential source of water and nutrients for species of life, including migratory birds, flora, anumerous nd fauna. Wastewater from open drains are the predominant source of pollution.
Lakes and reservoirs are essential for livelihood, industrial activity, and agricultural purposes. However, sewage from domestic and waste from industrial and agricultural activities are polluting the water.
Rivers play a significant role in defining the natural, cultural, and economic developments. However, rivers are contaminated by a variety of toxins due to the discharge of industrial effluents. In addition, wastewater form the open drains contribute to a major extent in degrading the water quality. The river waters eventually carry the contaminants to the ocean which in turn affects the marine life.
Bioxgreen offers holistic planning approach that integrates the provision of sustainable wastewater treatment and a solid-waste disposal strategy into the urban planning process. The solutions are customized application based on the effluent characteristics, using bespoke microbial consortium encompassing the following:
Brownfields STPs are existing treatment plants that have outlived their design period. These STPs are either defunct or not performing to the desired levels because of the costs involved in rejuvenation and upgradation. Construction of new STPs are capital intensive and poses a variety of challenges including land availability. An eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative would be to augment the existing STPs to perform efficiently through bioremediation technology.
BIOXGREEN TECHNOLOGY FOR BROWNFIELD SITES
2. Brownfield ETPs
Brownfield ETPs are existing industrial effluent treatment plants including common effluent treatment plants (CETPs). The majority of them are underperforming due to variation in the influent waste characteristics leading to negative impacts on the environment. Bioxgreen technology has experience in treating various industrial effluents including :
Food and beverage industry
Iron and steel industry
Chemicals and pesticides industry
Fine chemicals industry
Coffee processing industry
Following are the solutions developed by Bioxgreen for the Brownfield ETP
