The Vital Role of Stabilized Lime in Wastewater Treatment
Have you ever wondered how wastewater is cleaned? When we pump your septic facilities and remove all the sludge, we then take it to an aerobic sequence batch reactor system to begin the process of filtration. A series of aerated tanks removes solid contaminants so that the effluent can be treated further at local wastewater plants and redistributed to homes as clean water.
The good news is that the remaining solid waste is not wasted either. By pushing it through a belt filter press and then treating it with lime, we create a Class B biosolid. The lime raises the pH of the sludge to 12, and this kills the pathogenic bacteria and viruses. The resulting biosolid can then be used for things such as fertilizer at farms.
At EarthCare we’re doing our part to minimize our environmental footprint, and we encourage you to participate. If your business or community would like to make sure its waste is being handled responsibly, Contact Us and let our guys discuss some earth-friendly options with you.
