Bioxgreen is the recipient of the Leadership award for ‘Geospatial Excellence in Water Utility’ jointly with Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation in recognition of its contributions made for wastewater treatment at Versova WWTF through digital innovations and bioremediation.


What is Bioremediation of waste water?

  • Biological systems in a wastewater treatment plant can be enhanced to deliver improved process efficiency and output in terms of BOD, COD, and nutrient reduction by the introduction of pure microbial cultures to efficiently oxidize organic compounds with the aid of molecular O2 into CO2, water, and a new cell.
  • The process involves isolating specific strains of microbes (having the potential to release specific enzymes for breakdown of pollutants) and being dosed in the existing aeration tank.
  • The use of such specific consortia can overcome the inefficiencies of the conventional biological treatment facilities currently operational in sewage treatment plants.
  • The Introduction of pure culture microbial consortium will have a cumulative effect on increasing the biomass activity, growth efficiency, and enzyme production
  • Pure culture microbial consortium serves to overcome feedback regulation and catabolic repression, as the products of one microorganism act as a substrate for the other.
  • The microorganisms (or biomass) are the key soldiers in a wastewater treatment plant / STP / ETP or Open drains that fight and degrade the pollutants in the wastewater. The native biomass is always dynamic depending on the incoming pollutant load wherein different microbes get suppressed or outnumbered or simply die under adverse or stressed conditions such as toxicity, variable pH, low DO, excessive COD loading, and high (or low) wastewater temperature leading to poor or inconsistent effluent quality.
  • Bioaugmentation is the process of incorporating special potent and highly-efficient microbes specifically designed to target specific pollutants and address the issues of reduced or lost bacterial populations that impact net performance.
  • Bioaugmentation helps in efficiently handling shocks and quick upset recovery owing to shock loading.
