The BioCycle Cyclic Aeration Process is an automated mixing and aeration system that utilizes real-time controls to create ideal conditions for nutrient removal in secondary wastewater treatment processes while saving energy. This patented process integrates the BioMix Compressed Gas Mixing System within a facility’s new or existing diffused aeration system to optimize biological phosphorus removal, simultaneous nitrification/denitrification, and alkalinity recovery in a single bioreactor.
By decoupling aeration and mixing functions and integrating a process control system, operators can enhance a bioreactors flexibility to control dissolved oxygen (DO) levels, taper aeration, and create discrete anaerobic, anoxic and aerobic conditions. BioCycle effectively reduces energy consumption while maintaining effluent quality.

BioCycle dynamically creates optimal process conditions in secondary aeration basins. To determine when to change the cycle operation, the controller monitors DO, oxidation reduction potential (ORP), nitrate (NO3) and ammonia (NH4) concentrations in the basins. Traditional diffused aeration provides the aeration needed to create aerobic conditions, whereas BioMix provides the mixing required for the anoxic cycles.
