There have been many advances made to expedite and reduce the cost of the wastewater remediation process. ERC’s bacterial invention involves a biological treatment that minimizes waste, utilizing a robust, effective mixture of heterotrophic bacteria for the enhanced treatment and degradation of organic wastes, converting said organics to water, sugar, and carbon dioxide gas.
Most refineries are classified as hazardous waste generators and are required to have a waste minimization program. Since most refineries don’t have a proper treatment, storage or disposal permit, all waste must be shipped to offsite facilities for disposal. This is a really long and expensive process that can be eliminated through ERC’s technology.
