Treatment For Sewage and Grease With SEBS

Guaranteed Bio-Augmentation Process

Every “sewer treatment” facility, from a cesspool to the most advanced membrane filter processes, is an engineering endeavor to create as conducive an atmosphere as possible to help the natural bacterial degradation processes work. Most systems depend on available Bacteria delivered to the treatment system from the human body.

Bacteria are generally grouped by the way they “breathe”- Anaerobic bacteria use little oxygen in processing their food (best in closed tanks and pipe), Aerobic bacteria need more oxygen to process their food and work better in an oxygenated atmosphere (in leach field or aeration chamber) and Facultative bacteria can work in either atmosphere. Each single cell Bacterium has a favorite “diet”, so a variety of Bacteria are required to process all the pollutants encountered in any sewer system.

The Bacteria in our bodies, which we couldn’t live without, are primarily Anaerobic. Through their adaptation to living in our bodies, they have evolved into highly specialized critters, and have done most of what work they are capable of in processing our waste before they enter the sewer system. Many of them are destroyed by the pollutants we flush down our sewer system every day- soaps, cleansers, bleach, medicines, grease etc., so their numbers are limited and not adapted to coping with these various other pollutants. Included in our bodies’ Bacteria are species which, through their processes, create sulfur compounds (that obnoxious “rotten egg” smell) that, when acidified, damage the sewer system infrastructure as well as create bad odors..

Bacteria begin their evolution as plank tonic (“free swimming”) creatures. They, like most creatures, like to “attach” themselves to something, and each other. As they attach themselves to each other, or some surface, they are referred to as Sessile (“non-swimming”) and develop a biofilm (“slime”) by producing ESP (“exocellular polysaccharide substances”) to bind them together. Once in their biofilm and “colonized” they begin to assume specific “duties”, reproduce at a much slower rate and generally become far less effective than their plank tonic ancestors.

Plank tonic Bacteria reproduce far more rapidly than Sessile Bacteria, and have much more voracious appetites than their more evolved progeny. They will soon replace, by natural selection (survival of the fittest) and their exponential reproduction cycles, the less effective, more evolved Bacteria in the system and provide for better waste processing every time.

We might compare Bacteria’s “Plank tonic” stage to Attila the Hun’s hoards, and their “Sessile” stage to the Roman Empire near its collapse.

No matter how hard we try to create the perfect atmosphere for the bacteria to do their job, if we do not have the proper mix of species of Bacteria, in sufficient quantities and strength to mitigate all the pollutants, the battle will be lost. We might never have won the American Revolution without the help of Lafayette, Kosciusko and Pulaski.

By using the SEBS processes, is your mercenary army against the most difficult to destroy pollutants in your system.

It is even more important in Grease Trap operation, as the Bacteria content from kitchen activities is negligible, and indeed, most of the other pollutants associated with kitchen and wear washing activities that flush through grease traps are deadly to Bacteria.

EST Inc will analyze your requirements, and blend the necessary breadth of species in sufficient quantities of natural, non-pathogenic aerobic, anaerobic and facultative bacteria into a compound of symbiotic species needed to address your specific problems, and introduce these first generation plank tonic bacteria, in the proper dosage, to remedy and maintain your system.

Introduced at Grease Traps, Lift Stations and into the Processing Plant or Septic Tank, the SEBS system will eliminate odor and remove sulfur compounds, reduce sludge by 45% or more and reduce maintenance time and costs in the plant, lift stations and the delivery system. Once your system is balanced and operation properly, the cost of the process will be paid for many times over by the savings you will enjoy – we guarantee it!

SEBS was applied over an 8 ½ week period. The surface was cleared and bottom sludge reduced by 80%. A maintenance dosage continues to consume residue.
