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 concentrated, dry blend of stabilized bacterial spores and micronutrients formulated for use in the degradation of petroleum based hydrocarbons.
Refinery wastewater contains petroleum hydrocarbons and nonpetroleum organic wastes. For this reason, Chemtech’s CHM-HCT-5B
contains a synergistic blend of petroleum degrading and organic waste degrading microbial strains.
Each strain in CHM-HCT-5B is selected to work under diverse environmental conditions and provide the most complete digestion of petroleum and petroleum degradation byproducts.
CHM-HCT-5B contains proven petroleum degrading strains. As shown in the two graphs on the right, gas chromatograph analysis confirmed that these strains metabolize hydrocarbon products such as gasoline, oil, diesel, and BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, and Xylene).
The bacterial cultures in this blend are also beneficial in treating soil contaminated with hydrocarbons. Soil treatments can be spray applied or tilled into the contaminated soil. The addition of nutrients in soil applications to balance the system often shows increased activity.

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.
