Presentation on theme: "Field Efficacy of VBTTM"— Presentation transcript:
1Field Efficacy of VBTTM Application of VBTTM will:Reduce accumulated solid wastes.Reduce power consumption.Reduce undesirable odors.Reduce contaminants in discharged. water (Improve water quality).
2Military Application Deployable Aerobic Aqueous Bioreactor Military Application Deployable Aerobic Aqueous Bioreactor* (The “DAAB”)Traditional aeration uses buoyant bubblesbuoyant bubbles float to surfacecontact/DO delivery time is minimalbuoyant bubbles are expensive to generateAerob-A-Jet bubbles are tinyvacuum bubbles are created under a partial vacuumtiny bubbles remain suspended for hours (.25 mm for hours)they readily diffuse and disperseoptimize aerobic bacterial growthVBA (Vacuum Bubble Aeration) technology replaces large motors3 hp can replace a 25 hp motor (traditional aeration)VBA is maximized with less mixingEven better results if sludge is not disturbed !!For high strength wastes, VBA has no equal !traditional aeration can’t handle BOD above 2-3,000VBA can handle 9,000 BOD!Converts anaerobic to aerobiccan dramatically improve aerobic performance in any BOD applicationTraditional aeration is very common and well establishednumerous large companies with established world-wide market-shareold method of traditional aeration has NSF approval[The competitive landscapeProvide an overview of product competitors, their strengths and weaknessesPosition each competitor’s product against new product]*Patent Pending
3United States Air Force Sam Houston State University
4USAF/SHSUThe US Air Force and Sam Houston State University are working on a project to develop a self-contained, portable wastewater treatment system using VBTTM to support 1,000 personnel on bases with no pre-existing infrastructure – bare bases.

9Deployable Aerobic Aqueous Bioreactor* - The “DAAB” *Patent Pending
10Deployable Aerobic Aqueous Bioreactor* - The “DAAB” A new bioreactor system for treating industrial and municipal wastewaters is easy to deploy and operate.Produces minimal amounts of sludge and odor.Fully functional and meets EPA release requirements in less than 24 hours.*Patent Pending
11Deployable Aerobic Aqueous Bioreactor* - The “DAAB” continued Small, flexible foot print.Can be set up as a self contained, stand alone unit or incorporated into an existing 400 sq ft space.Low energy (<10 kW/h daily) requirements.*Patent Pending
12Deployable Aerobic Aqueous Bioreactor* - The “DAAB” continued Other uses - sanitation and environmental cleanup for communities affected by natural disasters.*Patent Pending
13How DAAB WorksUses bio-augmentation to optimize the growth of healthy biofilms.Optimizes the metabolism of selected wild type microorganisms by increasing their collisions with biodegradable waste products.
14How DAAB Works continued The system’s VBTTM provides an oxygen saturated environment to maximize aerobic metabolism of the microorganisms.The DAAB system* utilizes gravity to reduce operational costs.*Patent Pending
15What Separates DAAB from Other Portable Wastewater Treatment Units? DAAB generates very little odor; other systems use aerosols to suppress odor.DAAB generates approximately 1% sludge; comparable units generate from % sludge.
16What Separates DAAB from Other Portable Wastewater Treatment Units What Separates DAAB from Other Portable Wastewater Treatment Units? continuedDAAB produces effluent acceptable to EPA standards within 24 hours following setup.Comparable units require days to produce an effluent acceptable to EPA standards.
17What Separates DAAB from Other Portable Wastewater Treatment Units What Separates DAAB from Other Portable Wastewater Treatment Units? continuedDAAB is a fixed film reactor capable of complete digestion, unlike activated sludge systems that do partial digestion and rely on settling to remove residual organic matter.
18What Separates DAAB from Other Portable Wastewater Treatment Units What Separates DAAB from Other Portable Wastewater Treatment Units? continuedDAAB operates on approximately 1/5 power required to operate units with comparable treatment capacities.
26Industrial Wastewater The DAAB system* has undergone extensive testing to establish its ability to degrade numerous VOC’s within 24 hours of exposure.Microorganism degradation of VOC’s is enhanced when provided with the DAAB environment.In the DAAB environment the microorganisms are resistant to VOC concentrations in excess of 80 ppm.*Patent Pending
