Improvement of Aeration with Microbubbles Reduction in surface tension results in the creation of Microbubbles. For same volume of air pumped in, the formation of microbubbles creates a tremendous increase in surface area for biological reactions to take place.
Oxygen must first move through the bubble. Then it must cross through the film holding the bubble together Normal Bubble and Gas Transfer Normal Size fine bubble (1 to 3 mm) Then it must diffuse through a dense boundary layer surrounding the bubble. Then it must pass through the film at the edge of the boundary layer.
Once out of the bubble, oxygen still has to travel through the water to the bacteria. Improvement of Aeration All this must take place while the bubble rises quickly through the water.
Improvement of Aeration Oxygen diffusion is enhanced because the distance from the center to the surface of the microbubble is shorter than that of a normal bubble. Also, the surface of the bubble is not a rigid film, but a loose structure that oxygen can pass easily through. Normal Bubble Microbubble
Also, Microbubbles rise more slowly, allowing more time for gas transfer to occur. Improvement of Aeration Once outside the microbubble, other BOC molecules increase oxygen availability by aggregating with the bacteria and oxygen.

Acceleration of Biological Activity Amphiphilic molecule attaches to • Contaminants • Bacteria • Oxygen or other gas Microbubble
Acceleration of Biological Activity Once attached to the various elements, the molecules self-organize into a loose aggregate With all the elements for a biological reaction together, reduction of the contaminant proceeds rapidly

Accelerated Ionic Interaction Ionic interactions involve unlike charges. This is similar in many ways to opposite magnetic charges attracting each other.
BOC reduces the water resistance; allowing for more Ionic Interaction Accelerated Ionic Interaction
Anaerobic Digester Optimization The bio-catalytic action of BOC on the various organic components of a sludge waste stream, including the lipids, indicates that there is an accelerated release of high nutrient values to indigenous microbiological populations within the bio -digester system. This leads to a faster transition to the Methanogenesis phase, along with higher microbiological vigor, producing a more complete biological consumption of TS & TVS.
Anaerobic Digester Optimization The study done by the city of Ridgewood showed a correlation to biomethane yield improvements and TS & TVS consumption rates. This 1 year study demonstrates these trend lines as optimization is reached. Distinct qualitative characteristics of sludge discharged from AD exhibited substantial odor reductions, which follows from a more complete consumption of TVS components.
Anaerobic Digester Optimization As seen in the Ridgewood Case Study: • 69% increased biogas production produced an annual savings of $38,500 in NG purchases against the baseline period. • Increased biomethane yields offer potential further annual NG savings of $24,500 - $31,000 through a reduction, or elimination, of NG usage in Building Boiler. • 29.3% reduction of sludge volumes offers projected savings annually of $18,945.38. • Reduction of secondary aeration energy usage on total kWh’s used per Kg of CBOD5 has been reduced by 29.4%, for a savings of $132.67 per day, or a savings of $48,424.55 per year.

VOC and Odor Control BOC based VOC odor management systems provide the world's highest performance standards in eliminating noxious odors and hazardous VOCs. • Extremely cost effective due to the ability to be delivered through water based spray systems at high dilution levels. • BOC based systems are the next generation green chemistry, both exceptionally safe to use and able to provide accelerated bio-remediation of the toxic biological conditions which produce odors. • Used successfully in installations throughout the world to solve the toughest jobs. • Simple, flexible, and immediately effective upon contact. • Neutralizes ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and hydrocarbon type noxious VOC compounds in solid waste, organic compositing, and sludge treatment.
