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

Septic System 5B
A ready-to-use, stabilized, bacterial spore concentrate, designed to biologically digest and deodorize organic wastes.
Chemtech’s biologically active formula includes an odor neutralizing fragrance, biodegradable surfactant and a proprietary stabilization system that will break down organic waste naturally and effectively. This product is fully formulated, simply place in a toilet tank and the bacteria are released with every flush – it’s that easy!
Scientifically selected bacterial cultures are selected for optimum enzyme production, assuring efficient breakdown of proteins, carbohydrates, cellulose and fats in organic wastes generated in a household or commercial septic tank system. Chemtech’s non-engineered cultures rapidly digest odor causing organic wastes. Odors aren’t just covered up; they are eliminated at the source! Bacteria are stabilized and shipped in spore form, ensuring long-term stability and extended shelf life.

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.
