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 ready to use pond treatment product formulated to reduce pond sludge, turbidity, and the nutrients required for the growth of algae.
Chemtech’s biologically active formula contains a proprietary blend of bacterial strains that were selected for the ability to breakdown excess waste material in ponds and reduce the amount of available phosphorous causing a reduction in the algal population.
Chemtech’s naturally occurring cultures efficiently digest pond bottom materials and reduce the organic matter in the water column leading to cleaner water and higher oxygen levels. The bacteria are stabilized and shipped in spore form, ensuring long term stability and extended shelf-life.
Multilevel quality assurance processes extend far beyond our doors. Purity and microbial concentration is guaranteed for consistent and superior biological products in the hands of your customers.
As demonstrated in the graph above, the application of Pond Clear Powder resulted in a significant reduction in Chlorophyll A, a measure of algal concentration, Phosphorous, and turbidity. These results were not generated in a laboratory, they were obtained under actual field conditions.

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.
