Ammonia Reduction Blend CHM-AMRB-5B
Chemtech’s Histosol and Microbe products are the industry-leading odor control, bioaugmentation, solids degradation, and corrosion prevention solutions. For over 20 years, we are the trusted and preferred supplier for a wide range of industries worldwide, including food processing, wastewater treatment, paper and pulp, refinery, and agriculture.
Safe, Natural Product
Histosol is a safe, natural product derived from organic matter consisting of natural soil constituents, including humate salts, humic acids, lignin matter and extractions of highly humified organic matters – powerful components that capture odorous compounds and interrupt their corrosive reactions, and enhance biological activities for solids degradation, reducing Total suspended solids (TSS) and Biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) levels.

Ammonia Reduction Blend (AMBR-5B)
CHM-AMRB-5B is a concentrated, dry blend of stabilized bacterial spores and micronutrients formulated for ammonia reduction.
High ammonia concentrations cause problems in many industries such as wastewater treatment, aquaculture, and animal waste treatment. To address this issue Chemtech and its business partner’s scientists in the BioTech field have set out to isolate strains to deal with these excessively high ammonia levels.
For this research replicate flasks of sterile media consisting of basal salts, glucose, and ammonia were inoculated with different strains of bacteria. The flasks were placed on an incubated shaker, and bacterial growth was monitored over a thirty-hour period. An increase in growth is indicative of the ability to utilize ammonia for cell growth. As demonstrated in the graph at right, our bacteria have the ability to utilize ammonia.
After screening over 300 strains of bacteria, the best ammonia degraders were combined to form Chemtech’s Ammonia Reduction Blend. This blend was further tested for the ability to reduce ammonia in swine barns. One barn was treated with our scientifically selected bacterial cultures and the other barn was left untreated for comparison. After 6 weeks of treatment, the ammonia and hydrogen sulfide levels were compared between the two barns after.
As is shown in the graph at right, Chemtech’s Ammonia Reduction Blend significantly reduced the ammonia level in the treated barn as well as the hydrogen sulfide level.

Do wastewater treatment plants smell? Well, not with the right odor control methods. Let’s take a look at this common misconception of wastewater treatment, along with a few others, as we seek to dispel the myths surrounding these facilities.
Is it a good idea to use polymers for water treatment? How does polymer water treatment work and what advantages does it offer to facility managers? Read on to learn about this in more detail and to examine how polymers can be deployed within your own wastewater treatment strategy.
There are many different ways that facility managers can use to reduce their environmental impact, including ecological remediation and wastewater treatment. These methods are not perfect, however, and there is often a by-product. Biogas is one of the most common of these by-products.
