We have a recommendation to install charcoal slow sand filters (CSF) to contain microbes from the waste water generated from our bioprocess lab. We are already steam autoclaving before discharging the effluent to environment. Is the CSF really required?
The recommendation from our safety contractor is that the microbes need to be contained in the bio lab itself. Microorganisms which are researched are type BSL-2 microorganisms. Is it mandatory to contain the microbes in the bioprocess lab itself since we are already having SBR reactor, activated carbon filter and pressure sand filter in our ETP unit but it is located around 150-200 m from our bioprocess lab.
