Micronovo Manufacturing tackles FOG naturally

A natural combination of bacteria, enzymes and fungi that removes pollutants from wastewater — but without having any detrimental effect on watercourses — is reportedly available in the UK for the first time. Micronovo’s Novoflow is available in the UK, Ireland and India from Designed Network Solutions (DNS).

Micronovo tackles sewage and FOG

Effective in almost any polluted wastewaters, including those badly effected by sewage; fats, oils and grease (FOG); the non-hazardous Novoflow from Micronovo in South Africa is said to work in rivers, lakes and open seas, as well as at treatment plants.

In the presence of organic waste, Novoflow not only begins to break down waste, but it actively competes for nutrients with unwanted pathogenic organisms. Decomposition is total, including sulphides and phosphates, to levels where wastewater is safe for irrigation or for return to the natural water cycle.

While filters, chemicals and bacteria can all help reduce pollutants, Novoflow is reportedly 100% biological. It decomposes all organic matter, whether it be from raw sewage, animal waste or organic waste, into CO2 and mulch.

At a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), Novoflow is effective when a pump circulates it between an aeration tank and a sedimentation tank. An active mud will form at the bottom of the sedimentation tank as the chemical oxygen demand (COD) and the biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) is also transformed by Novoflow into CO2. Once the active mud reaches 60%, the plant becomes a powerful filter.
