Wastewater Compliance Systems – Bio-Domes

Extend the Life of Your Lagoons for Many Years to Come at a Fraction of the Cost

Company Description:

Wastewater Compliance Systems, Inc. (WCS) is a provider of submerged bio-reactors used to enhance the biological activity of treatment systems in order to reduce ammonia, BOD and TSS concentrations. WCS’ goal is to help communities comply with state and federal environmental regulations without resorting to expensive mechanical plants. Whether yours is an existing system, or new construction, Bio-Domes can help minimize the expense of your treatment system.

Technology Description:

Wastewater Compliance System’s award-winning, patented Bio‐Domes are intended for use as a means of increasing the naturally occurring biological activity in a water body. They sit on the floor of a lagoon and are completely submerged. The Bio‐Domes enhance the naturally occurring biology by providing 2800 square feet of surface area per unit, a gas delivery mechanism capable of providing air or more specific gasses as necessary, an environment protected from UV light, and significant mixing action to ensure nutrient availability to the biology as it grows.

When used in a wastewater lagoon, the enhanced biology is capable of accelerating the nitrification of ammonium and the subsequent denitrification of nitrates and nitrites. Additionally, the gas delivery/aeration design helps reduce BOD levels. As organic material is consumed by the bacteria, overall TSS levels are reduced. The airlift action created within the Bio‐Domes is the mechanism behind the mixing action and helps delay the buildup of sludge on the bottom of the lagoon.

Technology Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators

Aeration:

  • Primarily applicable for flush system followed by primary solids separation and within a region that has concerns regarding local odor emissions from long-term storage lagoons.
  • Capital costs for the mechanical surface aerators and their platforms/electrical connections are moderate.
  • Operating costs, even with limited aeration can be high due to high utility costs for continuous operation of energy intensive aerators.
  • Well-researched, understood and engineered system with multiple vendor platforms available across industries, including manure treatment.
  • Several types of aerators are available in the market that are suited for dairy operations.
  • Specification requirements of aeration equipment and its installation depend on farm size, manure characteristics, and odor mitigation goals of that dairy farm.

Newtrient Comments/Opinions:

Wastewater Compliance Systems has not been evaluated using Newtrient's 9-point scoring process because, although their process appears to be suited for use on dairy manure, they do not currently have any dairy based projects.
