Bio-Lace® is developed for upgrading the existing treatment plants to achieve their desired goals without any downtime.With recent guidelines on treatment discharge norms, achieving the required parameters without much civil changes and low downtime.
The amount of sewage flowing into rivers and lakes is causing serious environmental problems threatening not only those immediate areas, but also the whole ecosystem. While there are many proposals on how to treat sewage, a new method has emerged which has been attracting the attention of local governments all over the country.
The Bio-Lace® system is developed by Euroclean USA. Bio-Lace® can be easily implemented to treat the organic pollutants entering the lakes, rivers and oceans.

What is Bio-Lace ?

How does Bio-Lace® works?

The Bio-Lace® floating reactor is made with a specialised float with higher grade buoyancy. The regenerative blower gives oxygen via the highly efficient diff user system to supplement aeration to Bio-Lace® module. This module is chosen precisely for a quick deployment, in field conditions without disturbing the existing operating system.
Each Bio-Lace® Module is simply made up of a core strand covered with numberless rings of thread. This thread is made of polymer, such as poly (vinylidene chloride) and polypropylene thread. In appearance, it resembles a fantastically long tangle of thread covered in loops. When in use, 10m lengths of the cord are stretched between pairs of poles, spaced 10cm apart. These poles are planted on a riverbed so that the cords are underwater. The total number of lace to be used varies with the width and depth of the tank/ lake.
When Bio-Lace® module is placed in the water, entire Bio-Lace® media gets submerged and the oxygen shall be given from the bottom for microbes via diffused aerations system.
These conditions will help the microorganisms to grown on the Bio-Lace®.In the natural state, rivers have sufficient hydrophytes and microorganisms to cleanse the water with organism contamination at normal levels. However, they are unable to cope with large quantiti es of contaminant, and also become less efficient when the surface area of the riverbed is reduced by flattening it and covering it with concrete. The objective of Bio-Lace® is to supplement the Lakes/ river’s inherent ability.
At first it might seem to be a matter of chance that bacteria will adhere to Bio-Lace®, however, the thread rings have a positive charge in the water and the microbe cells are negatively charged. As a result, the microbes are attracted to and held by the threads. In addition to this, bacteria is divided into two types, aerobic and anaerobic, according to their preference for air. The intricate Bio-Lace® prevents dissolved oxygen from reaching the cored centre, where anaerobes prevail. On the other hand, aerobes multiply in the outer part. Bio-Lace® thus provides a symbiotic culture bed for a wide spectrum of microbes including bacteria, protozoans, and algae. The proliferating microbes efficiently treat the sewage, and ensure a high quality of treated water.
Anaerobes consume the excreta of the aerobes, so the system becomes a balanced food chain in itself, and produces less excess sludge than other systems. The simple Bio-Lace® system requires little maintenance, and is easy to install.
Bio-Lace® has been recognized as a promising water treatment tool, and can be implemented in medium and small size ponds, lakes, rivers, treatment plants without any significant down time.

Hence, Bio-Lace® works in three stages - attachment, growth and dispersal.
