Why Bio Treatment?

Biological treatment of wastewater is recognized as a responsible choice in the chemical industry. The process utilizes bacteria and other microorganisms to naturally degrade organic contaminants, thus resulting in a reduction of the biological oxygen demand (BOD) in the resulting effluent. This degradation of the pollutants and the decreased BOD introduce readily usable water into the receiving stream.  

Stolthaven Houston's effluent water is discharged directly into the Houston Ship Channel and, as such, is stringently regulated by Federal, State, and Local agencies to ensure:

  • Protection of public health and the environment
  • Prevention of water pollution 

All wastewater treated at Stolthaven Houston is monitored throughout the handling process to ensure all regulatory and performance requirements are met.
