Control Solutions for Water Treatment Facilities
Invasive biofouling pests such as zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha), quagga mussels (Dreissena rostriformis bugensis), and golden mussels (Limnoperna) infest raw water transfer pipes, intake screens, monitoring lines, pre-ozonation units and filter beds.
Other problems include blocked or impeded water transfer, difficulties inspecting pipes, inefficient treatment due to failed pre-ozonation and filtration, and taste and odour problems in supplied water.
Biofouling can result in total works failure.
Biofouling often leads to large hidden costs associated with increased energy consumption in addition to the more visible costs associated with control / mitigation attempts.
BioBullets Ltd has worked closely with Thames Water and Anglian Water in the UK to develop highly effective products for control of biofouling pests in water treatment works.
