With the use of the Noflex Digestor, the chemicals that destroy the bacteria are neutralized. The process of destroying the aerobic bacteria is required in order to efficiently and effectively operates the Marine Sanitation Device. Noflex also helps in dissolving the built-up sludge situated in the piping systems and the Marine Sanitation Device. The process results in the liquification of the sludge material. It also facilitates the release of oxygen into the sewage facility. With the added oxygen, the aerobic bacteria become healthy and grow. This then results in a healthy, clean and odorless sewage plant.
The importance of treating wastewater
Wastewater treatment facilities are very important in that they purify or cleanse the water coming from toilets and drains before releasing it to the environment. Over time, water treatment facilities have evolved and improved. Their most important role is in clearing the water that people use in homes from solid materials. This process involves screening and settling down the materials and is referred to as primary treatment. This process might remove large debris from the wastewater; however, the latter is still teeming with organic materials which are so smelly. If these substances are directly dumped into bodies of water and to landfills, it can contaminate the environment and perhaps consume oxygen in the area as it will be decomposing. It is for this reason that almost all of the treatment facilities in the United States use a process known as aeration in order to encourage the growth of helpful microorganisms. These beneficial microorganisms help in breaking down the biological substances in the wastewater in a process that is referred to as secondary treatment.
In most treatment facilities, the water is discharged after undergoing sterilization with the use of ultra violet light. The extreme light will kill the potentially disease causing viruses and bacteria.
In recent technological advancements, research and developments have brought new kinds of technologies that can treat wastewater. The nutrients are removed in the third phase which is known also as the tertiary treatment.
In 2003, an incident known as the Greenwich Bay fish kill happened in Rhode Island because of pollutants coming from untreated water sources. After the incident, a law was passed requiring a 50 percent reduction in the discharge of nitrogen from wastewater treatment facilities that are situated in the upper bay. Today, water treatment plants in the area are already adhering to this environmental protection law.
