The pilot at the Anheuser-Busch Baldwinsville plant in New York State will consist of a treatment module that will be installed in three components:
The VIVA Module treats organic secondary wastewater. VIVA reduces energy use in secondary treatment by eliminating Wastewater Aeration.
The Controller: A digital device that tracks biological activity and biochemical oxygen demand (“BOD”)/chemical oxygen demand (“COD”) removal. Will provide real-time data on biological activity and cathode potentials. A biological or mechanical problem or upset will provide data to alert the plant operator and MICROrganic directly.
The Site Evaluation Unit (SEU): Will be installed tank-side of one of the aeration bays. Wastewater intake into the SEU will come from the equalization tank at the plant. Activated sludge in the treatment process will be used, energy reductions related to VIVA vs. Conventional Aeration are 85-90%.
