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. A township in Pennsylvania was able to keep their water safe by using Microbe Life
Effective, Environmentally Friendly, & Economical Solution
What's in our product?
Safe for Personnel to handle
A unique bacterial-laden solid, combining a high bacterial count with slow release technology, to dose bacteria into wastewater and effluent handling facilities.
Chemtech Bio-Block is a solid material that slowly dissolves, releasing bacteria for digestion of organic waste in higher flow systems such as lift stations, wet wells, etc. These beneficial bacteria are present in high numbers to handle difficult organic problems. This unique brick will gradually dissolve over a 3090 day period which allows for continuous treatment and digestion of waste. The naturally-occurring bacteria contained in the block will reduce odor, sludge, fats, oils, and grease buildup

What is soil bioremediation exactly, and how is this process being used to reverse ecological issues? In this article, we’re going to take a look at how to define bioremediation, and also examine some of the key industrial applications of this highly useful form of biotechnology.
Wastewater odor control and chemical treatments are crucial for any facility or plant handling waste and producing effluent. But what exactly are these wastewater microbes, and how do they work in the process of water treatment? Read on as we explore this in more detail.
Wastewater is an important consideration for facility managers right across the USA. Management teams need to be able to ensure the quality of the effluent they leave behind, protecting public and environmental safety. So where does the preliminary treatment of wastewater fit into the process?
