Bio-organic catalysts cannot be simply categorised as bacteria, enzymes, polymers, or as a traditional chemical.Instead, they are multi-pronged cleaning agents composed of a powerful fermentation supernatant that is derived from plants and minerals, blended with stabilisers and a non-ionic surfactant.The result is a broad-spectrum liquid concentrate that, when applied, hugely accelerates naturally occurring chemical and biological reactions within water and solid waste treatment.
Bio-organic catalysts contain no bacteria, and are completely nontoxic and biodegradable.
Bio-organic catalysts are a significant advance over all other currently available chemicals, or biological agents.Conventional organic catalysts tend to limit oxygen transfer.Bio-organic catalysts create ultra-fine microbubbles with very high oxygen transfer characteristics. This is one of four key pathways that help rapidly clean surface waste contaminants and break them down into their fundamental constituents.
- Biologically derived catalysts rapidly solubilise organic matter.
- Surface-modifying compounds increase dissolved oxygen.
- A Carbon activation platform organises the components for a more efficient biological reaction
- Supplements and trace elements generate a healthier bacterial metabolism
Maintaining an aerobic environment in waste collection systems is essential to avoid chronic service problems and dangerous conditions due to hazardous gases.These gases are also the source of most public complaints.Bio-organic catalysts are superior in this situation because they effectively clear out slime layers and fats, oils and grease clogging. They also increase dissolved oxygen levels within gravity and forced mains, as well as other aerobically compromised parts of the system.
Bio-organic catalysts substantially raise dissolved oxygen levels. This boosts the efficiency an aeration system. Resultant increases in gas transfer rates, improved bioprocess efficiency can lower energy requirements by as much as 30%.The ability to maintain higher dissolved oxygen levels during even heavier loading periods also provides operators with the means to better manage optimum microbiological activities.
Operators of waste treatment facilities of all varieties face competing challenges.The need to provide sufficient treatment capacity must be juggled against compliance demands and the need to constrain operational expenses.Each of these areas can be favourably affected by the use of bio-organic catalysts, making a compelling cost-benefit analysis.Using bio-organic catalysts in key areas can boost bio-processing loading and cut chronic fats, oils and greases congestion. Used as a pre-treatment, it also creates more favourable aerobic microbiological conditions, reducing the total organic load on the plant.Aeration energy demands — along with bio-solids processing costs — can be reduced by around one-third. Regular use of bio-organic catalysts can also eliminate many chronic maintenance procedures, reducing wage expenses, worker health risks as well as public complaints.
Increased regulatory discharge levels require operators to evaluate the most cost-effective approach to achieving maximum reduction in discharges.Bio-organic catalysts help address bio-processing optimization of existing facilities and therefore are exceptionally cost effective.
Bio-organic catalysts can improve nitrification because of the oxygen demand required to oxidise ammonia into nitrate.Ammonia oxidising-bacteria (Nitrosomonas) and nitrite oxidising-bacteria (Nitrobacter) require high, sustained levels of dissolved oxygen for complete nitrification to occur. Bio-organic catalysts are able to boost dissolved oxygen levels and lower the demands for the required bio-chemical reactions.
