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.

Is Bioremediation Really Effective in Oil Spills?
What is bioremediation used for? The process harnesses the power of microorganisms in the disintegration and digestion of contaminants such as petrochemicals and hydrocarbons, making bioremediation useful in oil spill mitigation and cleanup.
The Role of Microorganisms in Oil Degradation
Oil degradation is an effective environmental bioremediation technique in which microorganisms digest petrochemical pollutants. But which biological and chemical processes help to make this happen, and how can we better understand the benefits? Read on to learn more.
Understanding Bioremediation Costs: Planning a Bioremediation Process
The bioremediation process helps facility managers, clean-up specialists, and business owners working in heavy industry to effectively remove contaminants from the soil. But bioremediation costs can be high, so it’s important to remain aware of the different price factors involved.
