New Micronovo tackles FOG – naturally

A completely natural combination of bacteria, enzymes and fungi that removes pollutants from wastewater, but without having any detrimental effect on watercourses, is now available in the United Kingdom for the first time.

According to the manufacturer, the product is effective in almost any polluted wastewaters, including those badly effected by sewage, fats, oils and greases. The non-hazardous Novoflow (from Micronovo in South Africa) works in rivers, lakes and open seas, as well as at treatment plants.

In the presence of organic waste, Novoflow begins to break down waste, and actively competes for nutrients with unwanted pathogenic organisms. The company says 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 100% biological. It decomposes all organic matter, whether it be from raw sewage, animal waste or organic waste, into CO² and mulch.

The company also says Novoflow is particularly effective at a wastewater treatment plant, 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 COD and the BOD is also transformed by Novoflow into CO². Once the active mud reaches a level of 60%, the plant becomes a powerful filter.

Micronovo’s Novoflow is now available exclusively in the UK, Ireland and India from Designed Network Solutions
