Oily Wastewater Treatment

Oily Wastewater Treatment

A multi-year study was performed for the US Navy to determine the effectiveness and viability of an accelerated biological process to treat oily water. The initial bench testing provided excellent results, and was followed by a successful field test at a shore-based site. An onboard-simulated test was performed at major base utilizing oily bilge water.

The process demonstrated an ability to reduce oil remediation to hours from weeks, reducing oil levels. Samples taken and pictured here show the change in the oily water over 96 Hours.

  • Micro-nanobubbles increase flotation of free and emulsified oils
  • Micro-nanobubbles reduce off gassing and stripping of VOCs
  • Elevated dissolved oxygen levels satisfy increased biological activity during treatment
  • Micro-nanobubbles reduces off gassing and stripping of VOCs
