Ydro Process® is a technology which increases the performance of biological treatment processes by adding selected bacterial cultures which enhances the process of:
The Ydro Process ® is the continuous adaptation of the microbial population to the conditions of each process according to the targets. The added bacteria become dominant, and the existing ones are adapted and assimilated to coexist and collaborate.
In suitable conditions the added microorganisms produce enzymes which enhance the biological process.
The degradation of complex organic molecules, oils and greases into simple ones leads to the production of Volatile Fatty Acids (VFAs), i.e., Acetic, Butyric, Propionic Acid etc.
The VFAs are then easily converted to Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O) in aerobic conditions, methane (CH4) and hydrogen (H2) in anaerobic conditions and free available energy.
The breakdown and molecule destruction occurs up to 80% of the total biomass through the metabolic pathway called Catabolism.
Only 20% of the total biomass is utilized for the synthesis of new bacteria.
The Nitrogen Cycle with the Ydro Process ®
The Ydro Process® requires less oxygen supply as the Ammonia (NH4+) is converted to Nitrites (NO2–) and then Nitrogen (N2) without first being converted to Nitrates (NO3–) where the largest consumption of Oxygen occurs depending on operational conditions.
The combination of the Ydro Process® and the addition of the suitable microbial product results in:
