OxyShark as an Integrated System Case Study

For facilities producing specialty wastewater, the problem arises of how to manage the water. Because of the chemical contaminants within specialty wastewater, it cannot be treated by traditional systems. Additionally, in many rural areas where specialty waste is commonly found, there are rarely municipal sewer systems available to manage the water. This leaves the facility in a difficult situation with no immediate solution to its dilemma.

With these concerns comes the need for unique solutions that integrate with current wastewater treatment processes to develop sustainable solutions that will improve site functions and stability. Fortunately for producers of specialty waste, OxyShark® can work as an integrated system, using additional processes to handle particularly difficult strains of specialty waste.

For producers of specialty waste such as pathogens and complex organics, OxyShark has developed a multi-layer treatment process to be used in addition to the modular OxyShark system. Supplemental processes can be added ahead of or following the Oxyshark biological process where pre-treatment or post treatment is required (e.g., settling, clarification, ultrafiltration, chemical addition, etc.). Finally, ozone can be used as a final measure to remove odor, remove color and destroy any lingering pathogens in the final stages of treatment.

What’s more, OxyShark can integrate these additional processes without slowing down operations or reducing pollutant removal efficiency. While many traditional systems struggle to manage specialty waste efficiently, OxyShark can integrate supplemental processes that enhance pollutant removal while keeping operations running smoothly.

An OxyShark integrated system is already in use at a specialty waste producer site. The system capably manages its needs, reducing the cost of typical specialty waste treatment alternatives.

Each site is unique, as is its wastewater. To see if OxyShark is the right system for your needs, please email info@oxyshark.com

Seafood Processing Plant Case Study

The Alabama Gulf Coast is well known for supplying quality seafood to consumers around the world. Because of its massive levels of water usage, the seafood processing industry brings with it a need to use water efficiently throughout its processes.

One such member of the industry is a seafood processing plant that supplies shucked and packed (processed) oysters to restaurants, hotels and other fine dining establishments within the United States. This company has been in business for a number of years, but due to more stringent environmental regulations that were recently introduced, the plant began to fall behind in complying with the latest standards. In order to address these compliance issues, the facility sought after and evaluated options to meet regulations, such as relocating the facility, wastewater treatment system options, etc.

The oyster processing plant produces about 6,000 gallons of wastewater every day; each gallon must be treated in order to be discharged in a safe and efficient manner. Furthermore, this wastewater has a strength of up to 600 mg/l BOD5 – that’s about twice as strong as domestic sewage. Such a large and complex operation naturally requires a treatment system powerful enough to thoroughly process its wastewater.

That’s where the OxyShark® system comes in. OxyShark provided the processing plant with an environmentally friendly and easy-to-use solution to the compliance issues that the plant was facing. The OxyShark system now treats the plant’s wastewater, turning it into clean water that leaves behind a minimal footprint as it is discharged into the ground. In fact, the OxyShark system at the plant discharges water with a pollutant removal efficiency as high as 97 percent!

Furthermore, not only did the OxyShark system provide a viable solution to the operation’s environmental compliance issues, but it did so at a much lower cost than the alternative treatment systems the plant evaluated. Even better, for a growing operation such as a seafood processing plant, the OxyShark system can be adjusted to fit the needs of the operation as it expands.

For new installations, OxyShark can provide on-site training to assist owners and operators in familiarizing themselves with the system. The intuitive nature of the system has allowed employees at the seafood processing plant to learn how to effectively manage their OxyShark in a relatively short amount of time.
