ACHEIVES NEW CPCB NORMS
The use of BioXGreen’s special microbial formulations would help achieve new CPCB norms for waste water discharge without additional CAPEX investment. The change in waste water dynamics over the years, calls for development and incorporation of newer types of cells/bacteria that could breakdown the xenobiotic pollutants thus getting into the water bodies.
Microorganisms in the environment have always broken down waste which has been effectively exploited by humans (knowingly or unknowingly) in agricultural, domestic and industrial activities. Microbial diversity is an important component of the overall global biological diversity. At BioXGreen we do a careful selection of microbes and intelligent design of test assays which are the key steps in developing new technologies for effective utilization of microorganisms for sustainable agriculture and environmental protection. Environmental pollution caused by the release of a wide range of compounds as a consequence of industrial progress has now assumed serious proportions. Nitroaromatic compounds (NACs), polycyclic aromatics and other hydrocarbons (PAHs) that are constituents of crude oil, and halogenated organic compounds together constitute a large and diverse group of chemicals that are responsible for causing widespread environmental pollution. Another source of pollution is Sewage, which is composed of organic matter such as carbohydrates, fats, oil, grease and proteins mainly from domestic waste. It also contains dissolved inorganic matter such as nitrogen species and phosphorous species mainly from agricultural use. It is essential to remove the nutrients before they are released to the environment because it interferes with natural habitats by altering the chemical composition such as pH or oxygen level both directly and indirectly. As a result, BioXGreen developed cost effective technologies for microbial remediation of pollutants and xenobiotics. Research shows a diverse number of bacteria could utilize these pollutants as substrate for metabolism often mineralizing them or converting them into harmless products, and in the process helping to clean up the environment.
Many bacterial consortia capable of growing on these chemicals produce enzymes which degrade toxic compounds to non-toxic compounds.
Organic/Xenobiotic compound + O2----------------CO2 + H2O + biomass + residue(s)
The process of conversion of biodegradable materials to gases like carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrogen compounds are called mineralization. Mineralization process is completed, when all the biodegradable biomass is consumed and all the carbon is converted into carbon dioxide.
