Waste Treatment

Our enzymes and enzyme-producing bacteria effectively break down organic waste and increase the quality of wastewater effluent without the use of harsh chemicals.  Our treatment products contain specially selected enzymes and/or bacteria strains that start acting quickly to degrade organic waste, reduce odors, and improve system efficiency over the long term.

Bio-augmentation of waste treatment systems with enzymes and/or bacteria has been shown to

  • Improve treatment system efficiency
  • Reduce odor
  • Reduce sludge volume
  • Improve the clarity of ponds
  • Reduce COD (chemical oxygen demand) in the effluent
  • Improve effluent water quality more consistently

Our enzymes and enzyme-producing bacteria can also be used to treat:

  • Dumpsters
  • Trash compactors
  • Refuse containers


Enzymes start degrading organic waste immediately upon addition, while our enzyme-producing bacteria strains use the organic wastes as carbon and nitrogen sources for growth and effectively treat your system for the long term.  We carry several pre-formulated enzyme and/or bacteria waste treatment products, or we can formulate products to fit your specific needs.


Our microbial concentrates are provided as pure cultures or as custom blends, tailored to fit your specific application needs. For more information, please contact us today.
