Supplier Partner – BioSafe Systems

BioSafe Systems
BioSafe Systems, a family-owned manufacturer of biodegradable disease-control products, began selling to the horticulture industry in 1998. The company quickly expanded to the agricultural, industrial, and municipal markets with innovative products, processes and services.

The mission of BioSafe Systems is to provide solutions utilizing reduced-risk chemistries that do not negatively impact the health and safety of people and the environment. The Company is headquartered in Connecticut, but provides products and services throughout North America.  BioSafe Systems divides its business into several market segments: Agriculture, Horticulture, Post-Harvest/Food Safety, Aquatics and Commercial, Industrial or Municipal water oxidation, disinfection and alkalinity.

Our partnership involves working with municipal and industrial clients to develop solutions in the following functional areas:

Municipal Wastewater

  • Disinfection using pre-generated or onsite-generated peracetic acid products
  • Odor control and supplemental dissolved oxygen for non-aerated retention ponds and lagoons using hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid or both chemicals
  • Control of anaerobic bacteria in EQ tank or headworks utilizing peroxygen chemistry
  • Odor control in collection system utilizing innovative delivery system of peroxygen based chemical stored in a safe, centralized location
  • Durational odor control for process sludge using cost-efficient peroxygen chemistry
  • Algae control for non-aerated ponds and lagoons utilizing peroxygen chemistry

Municipal Drinking Water

  • Hydrogen peroxide for quenching ozone residual used for disinfection and improving the taste and odor of water (typically seasonally)
  • Peracetic acid to pre-oxidize incoming water ahead of final disinfection using chlorine or hypochlorite to minimize generation of disinfection by-products (DBPs), including THHM and reduced operating cost

Industrial Wastewater and Process Water

  • Hydrogen peroxide for oxidizing sulfide prior to discharge to a POTW to cost-efficiently (compared to hypochlorite) meet permitted discharge limit
  • Hydrogen peroxide for enhancement of Dissolved Gas Flotation (including DAFs and DNFs) to improve removal of fats, oil and grease and pre-oxidize Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
  • Hydrogen peroxide for intermittent need of Dissolved Oxygen (DO) in activated-sludge aerobic bio-reactors when experiencing high incoming TOC or COD
  • Disinfection using pre-generated or onsite-generated peracetic acid products
  • Odor control and supplemental dissolved oxygen for non-aerated retention ponds and lagoons using hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid or both chemicals
  • Durational odor control for process sludge using cost-efficient peroxygen chemistry
  • Annual cleaning of biofilm from cooling tower packing and tubes using hydrogen peroxide to recover heat transfer value (of particular value to power generation sites)
  • Addition of periodic backwashing to media filters using hydrogen peroxide to enhance media life (of particular value to primary metal manufacturing sites)
