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.

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

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.
