Due to the higher quantity and diversity of biomass that lives on the natural and artificial media in an Organica FCR, a wider spectrum of organics is broken down.
The result is that for the same quantity and quality of wastewater an Organica FCR will produce lower Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and Total Nitrogen (TN) when compared to conventional approaches, while we also see enhanced removal of other “hot topic” contaminants such as xenobiotics found in common in painkillers.
As a result of the unique ecological diversity enabled by our FBAS solution, Organica FCR WWTPs are highly resilient to changes in influent. We have found this is especially relevant in emerging markets, where at times industrial flows can unpredictably mix with municipal flows and threaten entire biological WWTPs. While killing any ecosystem is only a matter of resolve, the additional diversity in an Organica FCR means the system can adapt to rapid spikes in influent much more effectively than other approaches, making an ideal solution for today’s unpredictable world.
