Performance Based on Experience and Knowhow
The advantages and reliability of FAST sewage treatment systems are inherent in the FAST process. It is a winner where consistently good performance is required, where loading and operating conditions vary and where trained operators are not available. These applications include but are not limited to marine and offshore. The advantages and reliability of the FAST process also makes it ideal for many land applications (www.biomicrobics.com).

  5. 5.     4  www.sciencofast.com  Company Overview   Scienco/FAST, a division of Bio‐Microbics, Inc. has delivered thousands of advanced, Marine Sanitation Devices (MSD) that are  pre‐engineered, pre‐packaged blackwater/greywater treatment systems on a variety of vessels and offshore platforms around  the world.  With more than 60,000 installations ranging from harbor tugs to cruise ships and from single homes to small cities  in over 70 countries, our simple, low‐cost, robust  “Fixed Integrated Treatment Technologies” (FITT®) are the result of decades  of real world operation and proven results…FITT® for the purpose intended.      With pioneering the development of wastewater treatment  technologies  since  the  first  our  installation  1969  in  the  maritime industry, Scienco/FAST has become a leading U.S.  manufacturer  and  educator  regarding  regulations,  technologies, installation experiences, and challenges facing  this sector and is the most experienced solutions provider in  the MSD retrofit market.   The  MarineFAST  MSD  process  uses  efficient,  aerobic  fixed  film  process  capable  of  meeting  or  exceeding  any  known  effluent  standard.  Combined  with  a  recommended  disinfection system to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive  species,  the  MarineFAST  MSD  System  offers  a  compact,  modular  design  with  simple,  fully  automatic  operation  to  provide  years  of  trouble‐free  existence  making  it  an  attractive solution for any type of vessel and Ship Operator!      The  process  can  produce  effluent  that  meets  virtually  any  requirement worldwide and will do so without adjustments,  clogging or other such problems.  Using the excellent FAST  process, the equipment itself is designed on the basis of the  applicable regulations.  Although many people treat sewage treatment as a public  service,  the  key  to  our  business  is  to  fully  meet  the  requirements  of  the  individual  customer  and  regulation  without unnecessary cost or complexity.  For example, units  certified  for  international  voyages  under  MARPOL  regulations  are  more  expensive  than  those  meeting  domestic  requirements  for  rivers  and  lakes  in  many  countries.    So, to determine if we can give you what you need, contact  us about your specific requirements:    Email us: solutions@sciencofast.com
  6. 6.     5 www.sciencofast.com  The regulations have changed several times during the past 40+ years and have continuously updated/upgraded these  units to also take advantage of technical developments.  The most recent of these changes are:   Scienco/FAST  obtained  approval  from  US  Coast  Guard  and  Transport  Canada  using  peracetic  acid  (PAA)  as  a  disinfectant instead of chlorine.  PAA is environmentally friendly, eliminates the adverse effects of chlorine and its  use permits a substantial simplification and reduction in cost for disinfection systems meeting MARPOL.   Scienco/FAST  also  obtained  certification  under  MEPC.227(64)  with  PAA.  To  us,  the  most  significant  effect  of  MEPC.227(64) is that it stops the use of unrestricted dilution to pass certification tests.  International Standards:  Shipboard sewage systems manufactured in compliance with MARPOL Annex IV may be certified by the U.S.  Coast Guard Marine Safety Center (MSC) as meeting the requirements of both 33 CFR Part 159 and MARPOL Annex IV.  Type approval is  annotated on the U.S. Coast Guard Certificate of Approval.  More information is available in the U.S. Coast Guard Navigation and Vessel  Inspection Circular No. 1‐09.  Vessel Manufacturers:  Manufacturers may not sell or distribute vessels having an installed toilet facility, unless it is equipped with an  installed and operational MSD of the type approved by the U.S. Coast Guard to meet the requirements of 33 CFR Part 159.  The term vessel  includes every description of watercraft or other artificial contrivance used, or capable of being used, as a means of transportation on the  waters of the United States.    Vessel Operators:  No person may operate any Vessel having an installed toilet facility, unless it is equipped with an installed and operable  MSD of a type approved by the U.S. Coast Guard to meet the requirements of 33 CFR Part 159.  Inspected Vessels:  In addition to the requirements in 33 CFR Part 159, inspected vessels must also comply with the marine engineering  regulations in 46 CFR Subchapter F and the marine electrical regulations in 46 CFR Subchapter J.  The U.S. Coast Guard Certificate of Approval  and device label will both indicate inspected vessel for those devices that meet these additional requirements and therefore are suitable for  installation onboard inspected vessels.  For more information see 33 CFR 159.97.   International  Voyages:    U.S.  vessels  on  international  voyages  may  obtain  a  U.S.  Coast  Guard  Statement  of  Voluntary  Compliance  to  demonstrate compliance with international sewage regulations contained in Annex IV to MARPOL 73/78.  More information is available in the  U.S. Coast Guard Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular No. 1‐09. MARPOL Annex IV, a sewage treatment plant installed on a passenger  ship intending to discharge sewage effluent in special areas should additionally meet effluent standards when tested for its Certificate of Type  Approval by the Administration  Foreign vessels:  While in U.S. waters, foreign vessels having a valid International Sewage Pollution Prevention Certificate (ISPPC) issued by  its  flag  Administration  indicating  that  the  installed  sewage  system  complies  with  MARPOL  Annex  IV  as  amended  by  either  resolution  MEPC.159(55) or MEPC.2(VI) will be accepted by the U.S. Coast Guard as being in compliance with 33 CFR 159.7(b) or (c) provided the system  is in operable condition.  For more information see Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular No. 1‐09.   “ All  of  us  at  Scienco/FAST  are  honored  that  so  many  ship  owners  and  operators  have  chosen  the  MarineFAST  technology  as  their  Wastewater  treatment  solution. ”   “ We  are  committed  to  providing  the  most  innovative and advanced  Wastewater  treatment  technology,  which  complies  with today  and  future  maritime  industry  sanitation  regulations. ”     ~ Robert J. Rebori, President

  8. 8.     7 www.sciencofast.com  MarineFAST® - How It Works: 1. Sewage enters the system.  No need for a macerator or bar  screen to clean or repair.   2. Quiet,  compact  BLOWER  provides  air  through  the  piping  system that connects to the airlift inside the media tank.  3. Aeration through the AIRLIFT circulates and aerates the tank  contents  to  promote  microorganisms  present  in  sewage  to  grow and become fixed on Media to digest organic material.   Media does not require replacement or cleaning.  4. From  center  line  SPILLOVER  pipe,  treated  effluent  passes  through TABLET CHLORINATOR and dissolves chlorine tablet  proportional  to  the  flow  rate.    Other  disinfection  methods  are available.  5. Sized  for  peak  flow  periods,  the  Chlorine  Contact  Tank  or  WETWELL  provides  the  chlorine  enough  time  to  disinfect  treated effluent prior to discharge.  Automatic Float Switches  (shown in yellow) located in the center line of the tank gauge water levels for on/off operation.    6. A submerged EFFLUENT PUMP in the wetwell transfers the treated effluent to discharge out of the tank.  Other transfer options available.   EFFLUENT STANDARDS Check which effluent requirements you must meet. See chlor/dechlor and PAA disinfection options, as well!  USCG 33CFR159 - Minimum 33CFR159 / MEPC.2(VI) standards for 150 TSS, 200 fecal, certified by U.S. Coast Guard installed aboard vessels and not subject to effluent sampling in service not required by regulations.  MARPOL 2010 - 25 BOD5, 35 TSS, 125 COD, 100 fecal effluent for USCG certified units and recommended for general marine use with 2 months internal sludge storage and dechlorination of effluent. Secondary treatment may be required for restricted waters, barges meeting local or harbor regulations, and offshore applications that are subject to state or other regulations.  USEPA Secondary Treatment - Applications requiring 85% removal, 30 BOD5, 30 TSS secondary treatment, 3 months internal sludge storage, and derate by 10% for dilute sewage.

By the Engineering Teams at Georg Fischer, LTD (www.georgfischer.com); Scienco/FAST   In the “show‐me” state of Missouri, a St. Louis‐based manufacturer is taking “show‐me,” user‐friendly technology to a new level in clean water treatment.  Scienco/FAST, a subsidiary of Bio‐Microbics, Inc., is well known for their innovative water treatment solutions (potable and waste) for shipboard use. With  over forty years in product development, they are no stranger to the industry or to the challenges that are inherent in the operation of water treatment  systems on oceangoing vessels.   Scienco® SciRO™ Reverse Osmosis (RO) system, encapsulates that knowledge. At the heart of the system is Georg Fischer’s innovative 0846 Profibus  Concentrator, a device that simplifies the integration of Signet measurement and Georg Fischer valves into a PLC with a minimum of programming and  wiring.  The  Scienco  Team  was  aided  in  unlocking  the  power  of  this  device  by  two  St.  Louis‐based  distributors,  Spec‐Tech  Industrial  Electric  (spectechind.com)  and  Indelco  Plastics,  formerly  Corrosion  Products  (indelco.com).  The  result  is  a  compact  RO  unit  that  is  easily  customizable  for  deployment globally aboard ships and in land‐based applications.   
  48. 48.     47 www.sciencofast.com  Decades of engineering experience have given Scienco/FAST valuable insights into the world of shipboard water treatment.  Scienco Systems were the hallmark of salt‐based tableting and brine systems in the 1950‐60’s when it was a division of Morton  Salt during its expansion phase in its history and sold to combine with FAST Systems in 1985. “We’ve all been on the operating  side of it,” said Steve Carpenter, Director of Engineering at Scienco. “We know what works from being on the other side of the  fence. We’ve operated these systems in the Navy and aboard merchant vessels.” Jim Predeau, Senior General Manager of  Operations at Scienco/FAST, has been on that “other side of the fence” for over 46 years. He explained, “We are all very aware  of  where  the  trouble  spots  are  in  our  industry.  Severe  space  restrictions,  minimized  downtime,  as  well  as  operators  with  diverse responsibilities, backgrounds, and languages all present issues that often compete with each other. Addressing each  one  effectively  is  certainly  a  challenge.  With  our  background  in  the  industry,  we  have  experienced  the  results  of  great  execution. That’s why ease of operation is the DNA of Scienco.”  “In  catastrophic  situations,”  Jim  Predeau,  Senior  General  Manager  of  Operations  at  Scienco/FAST  noted,  “water  becomes  a  primary  need.  With  just  a  few  hours  of  operator  training  on  the  Profibus  Concentrator,  our  new  Scienco  SciRO  system can begin processing clean water.”  In  conjunction  with  their  simplified  operating  methods,  the  advanced  design  and  affordable  price  point  of  Signet  products  require  little  maintenance  or  troubleshooting  and  decreases  the  probability  of  human  error.  Scienco/FAST  predicts their new SciRO system will have  a global impact, both with shipboard and  land‐based applications.  # # # # #    “ It’s great to see the simple  design of this one and not be  concerned  about  the  technical  issues  we’ve  faced  with  the  more  complicated  systems . . .This is so simple  to use! ”   “ I  enjoy  examples  of  exceptional  design  and  engineering…[about  the  SciRO]…things that should be  automated  are,  and  more  importantly,  adjustments  better  done  by  humans  are  not….this machine gets a big  gold  star.  Everything  is  just  right. ”     ~ Comments from Bio‐Microbics  Distributors at the SciRO  introduction training event.

Type II Marine Sanitation Devices (MSD) must comply with the 33 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) Part 159 regulations “to prevent discharge of untreated sewage from vessels into the waters of the United States,” says the US Coast Guard (USCG). From their site, the System Engineering Division (CG-ENG-3) of USCG states (http://www.uscg.mil/hq/cg5/cg5213/msd.asp), “In addition to the MSD requirements in 33 CFR part 159, inspected vessels must also comply with the marine engineering regulations in 46 CFR Subchapter F and the marine electrical regulations in 46 CFR Subchapter J.” They are certified, flow-through discharge devices that produce effluent having fecal coliform bacteria count not greater than 200 per 100 milliliters and suspended solids not greater than 150 milligrams per liter. This certification means the dilution of sewage is not an acceptable means for removing pollution. That is why Type II systems with biological treatment process, such as MarineFAST (www.sciencofast.com), are ideal. The MarineFAST® technology does a better job of treating all blackwater (toilet(s), galley sink(s), ground food waste, etc.) and graywater (laundry, personal wash water, dishwater(s), etc.) generated on board. The MarineFAST process supports a more complex microbial culture than conventional suspended growth systems and reduces the mass rate of sludge accumulation by one-third or more. No need for macerators, grinders, pretreatment or flow equalization tanks. MarineFAST systems are certified by the US Coast Guard’s USCG and International Maritime Organization’s MEPC.159 (55) effluent standards. The certification process involves thorough testing of how the system handles shock and vibration in the most extreme environments above and beyond standard requirements. Typical effluent standards include the following:  USCG 33CFR159 - Minimum 33CFR159 / MEPC.2(VI) standards for 150 TSS, 200 fecal count, certified by U.S. Coast Guard installed aboard vessels and not subject to effluent sampling.  MARPOL 2010 - 25 BOD5, 35 TSS, 125 COD, and 100 fecal count for USCG certified units and recommended for general marine use with 2 months internal sludge storage and dechlorination of effluent. Secondary treatment may be required for restricted waters, barges meeting local or harbor regulations, and offshore applications that are subject to state or other regulations.  USEPA Secondary Treatment - Applications requiring 85% removal, 30 BOD5, 30 TSS, 3 months internal sludge storage, and derate by 10% for dilute sewage. Not only are type II MSDs required for all inspected vessels, the MarineFAST’s patented, robust treatment process delivers consistent performance, system reliability, and easy maintenance. With a marine vessel’s constant movement, small space requirements, variable ship personnel, and flow surges, the MarineFAST is self-regulating and has a long service life. Installed for new ship-building construction or retrofit for upgrading current systems, these MarineFAST® LX- (1-40 crew), M- & MX- (1-80 crew), and DV- (1-2,000+ crew) Series wastewater treatment systems help lessen the environmental impact of contaminants and produce high-quality effluent to help keep the vessel in compliance. MarineFAST sanitation devices (MSDs) are installed on some of the ‘greenest’ boats in the world to provide total sewage treatment, pretreatment, and (in some cases) water reuse opportunities. The MarineFAST units provide outstanding effluent quality and starts up much faster than conventional suspended growth processes - usually in half the time!
