Our EP-1700 is the natural solution for controlling filamentous growth. Why control filamentous growth? The numerous negative aspects of filamentous bacteria include:

  • Poor settling of activated sludge
  • Increased foaming
  • Increased polymer consumption
  • Increased solids production

Foams and sludge on the surface of aeration and settlement tanks may reduce oxygen transfer efficiencies; prevent cooling of high temperature effluents and trap waste gases all indicative of poor waste treatment. The organisms typically responsible for this unsightly mess are filamentous bacteria like Nocardia and Microthrix. Controlling these filaments by chemical means is only a temporary fix as the organisms will eventually return.

Our EP 1700 is a selectively chosen bacterial consortium which will reduce foaming and promote better settling of sludge by destabilizing filamentous organisms, while also reducing FOG levels, a key food source of filamentous bacteria.
