How the YDRO Process® works

The YDRO Process®

The YDRO Process® is the continuous adaptation of the microbial population to the conditions of each process according to the targets. The added bacteria become dominant, and the existing ones are adapted and assimilated to coexist and collaborate. In suitable conditions, the added microorganisms produce enzymes that enhance the biological process. The degradation of complex organic molecules, oils and greases into simple ones leads to the production of Volatile Fatty Acids (VFAs), such as Acetic, Butyric, Propionic Acid, etc. The VFAs are then easily converted to Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O) in aerobic conditions and, methane (CH4) and hydrogen (H2) in anaerobic conditions which creates free and available energy.

The breakdown and molecular destruction occur up to 80% of the total biomass through the metabolic pathway called Catabolism. Only 20% of the total biomass is utilized for the synthesis of new bacteria.

The Ydro Process® requires less oxygen supply as the Ammonia (NH+4) is converted to Nitrites (NO-2) and then Nitrogen (N2) without first being converted to Nitrates (NO-3) where the largest consumption of Oxygen occurs depending on operational conditions.

The Ydro Process® consists of:
Ydro Series Microorganisms®  specialized microbial strains that enhance the ability of the microbial community to respond to process fluctuations or to degrade certain compounds:

  •  By changing the microbial community to include specific microbes, the operational characteristics of the microbial community can be improved
  •  Technical and Operational Support –parameter adjustments according to the targeted objectives
  •  Results in improved treatment and elimination of excess sludge
