Project in Brief
- Project Name: Monte Verdi Wastewater Treatment Plant
- Location: Clovis, CA
- Installation Date: April 2019
- Source of Odors: Sprinkler Box
- System Type: Biofilter
- Media Type: Fiber-Max, Crater-Max®
- H2S Removal Efficiency: >99%
The Monte Verdi WWTP had commissioned the furnishing of a complete biofiltration system with a concrete biofilter. GES Biotek was retained to supply and install filtration media and components for the system.
GES Biotek specified a dual biological media setup. A base layer of Crater-Max® supported a thin film sulfur oxidizing bacteria for the removal of H2S. The top layer of Fiber-Max supported the growth of naturally occurring fungal and bacterial micoorganisms for the capture and degradation of organic compounds and odors. GES also supplied all necessary components, including plastic screen barriers, media support plates, irrigation system, and control package.
GES Biotek provided complete startup and installation services and performed performance verification testing to ensure the system was installed properly and was functioning to specified parameters. A one-year service agreement was included.
Additional Case Studies
Hono'uli'uli WWTP, Honolulu, HI
Three biofilters required outfitting with a complete odor control system, including all media, equipment and accessories.
Eastern Municipal Water District, San Jacinto, CA
Enhanced Cell-Max, Crater-Max®
GES Biotek installed a dual-media ecosystem to properly distribute the foul air and remove all complex odors and VOCs.
Headworks Bar Screens Project, Hayward, CA
Biofilter beds were refitted with porous Crater-Max® media, which served as the ecosystem for the microorganism growth.
Bio-Scrubber® Tower System, Stockton, CA
Decontamination and remediation was required to restore this two-tower system with new Cell-Max media, screen, and support system.
