Aerobic processes

„Cellular respiration is the set of the metabolic reactions and processes that take place in the cells of organisms to convert biochemical energy from nutrients into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), and then release waste products. The reactions involved in respiration are catabolic reactions, which break large molecules into smaller ones, releasing energy in the process as weak so-called “high-energy” bonds are replaced by stronger bonds in the products. Respiration is one of the key ways a cell gains useful energy to fuel cellular activity. …. Although technically, cellular respiration is a combustion reaction, it clearly does not resemble one when it occurs in a living cell.“

EnviCare® Engineering GmbH uses aerobic bioprocesses mainly as an oxidative purification of organically polluted water and air streams.

Reasonable due to low costs

Although these classical “end-of-pipe” cleaning methods usually are not only energy-intensive and potentially valuable ingredients are degraded by oxidation in safe but useless end products, namely CO2, sewage sludge, ash from waste incineration plants, they are, from an economic perspective, often preferred. This is due to the ease of management and as the prices of fossil fuels, compared to costs of renewables, are still relatively low.
