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

In industrial and municipal wastewater and sewage treatment plants, pumping stations, septic tanks, and grease traps, Histosol is an effective, environmentally friendly, and economical solution used for the digestion of fats, oils, and grease, as well as the control and reduction of a wide range of odorous compounds, including hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans and ammonia, and their resulting corrosive effects.

What's in our product?

Chemtech’s Microbial products contain powerful bacteria and enzymes that act as organic catalysts to accelerate degradation of many organic polymers, including fats, proteins, plant carbohydrates, and certain types of solid materials.

Improves Efficiency

Microbe formulations effectively reduce treatment surcharges as well as frequency and severity of plant upsets, and remove specific waste compounds at higher rates. This ultimately improves the efficiency of treatment systems to produce higher quality effluents, helping to minimize operational costs and ensuring compliance with municipal and state regulations.

Safe for Personnel to handle

Chemtech’s Microbial products contain high numbers of naturally occurring bacteria that are effective for a wide range of degradation and treatment applications, and are safe for your facilities and personnel to handle.

  • Reduces COD, BOD and suspended solids of discharge effluent and thus reduces waste treatment costs and surcharges.
  • Eliminates waste and odors from drains, grease traps, septic tanks and similar disposal systems.
  • Utilizes the powerful waste digesting abilities of specifically selected beneficial bacterial cultures, and the natural enzymes produced by these cultures.
  • Destroys malodors naturally without the need of a fragrance or masking agent.
  • Breaks down proteins, carbohydrates, animal and vegetable fats, oils, and cellulase, effectively reducing waste and odor.
  • Prevents accumulation of sludge, scum grease, and other organic solids.
  • Eliminates carry over and odors in septic tanks and reduces the need for pump­outs.
  • Introduces microorganisms into the soil for improved drainage and smooth operation of drain fields, and leach beds. Speed up settling of solids in waste treatment facilities.

CHM­110­SB is available in 2oz, 4oz, 8oz and 1 lb (60gm, 113gm, 227gm, 454gm) water­soluble Bio­Pouches.
CHM­110­SB is also available in 25, 50, 100 lb (12, 25, 50 kg) and 400 lb (182 kg) bulk drums.*

*Additional cost for Water­soluble Bio­Pouches.
