Ensure a smooth plant start-up after a longer period of interruption

Ensure a smooth plant start-up after a longer period of interruption

As a response to the low commercial activity caused by COVID-19, several industrial wastewater treatment plants have either cut back or suspended operations completely.      

As things are slowly getting back to a normal state - at least in parts of the world - restarting your plant is necessary. But getting your plant back to normal operations after a longer period of interruption can be both complex and slow. A sudden excess of hydraulic or organic load to the biological treatment can cause upsets like:

  • Loss of biomass
  • Loss of settling
  • Increased sensitivity to toxic shocks 

Avoid expensive or permit-violating upsets, and take the necessary precautions with bioaugmentation. See below for more tips and advices.
