Biofixit 5400GC (General Chemicals)

Environmental International Limited harnesses the power of environmental biotechnology to deal with the problems in the treatment of effluent from the chemical industry. This is achieved by the use of products such as Biofixit 5400GC that contain a range of specialised microbes with the ability to efficiently degrade a broad range of organic chemicals.

What is Biofixit 5400GC?

Biofixit 5400GC is composed of a carefully selected blend of natural micro-organisms that have the ability to efficiently degrade a wide range of organic chemicals. These include solvents, amines, aromatics, aliphatic hydrocarbons, pharmaceutical intermediates, etc. The use of a wide range of strains ensures that the range of organic chemicals found in many chemical effluents can be effectively degraded. The strains chosen for the formulation can produce the complete range of enzymes required to degrade complex chemicals. These strains grow at a fast rate so that they can quickly establish dominance in the biomass, which is the heart of the wastewater treatment system.

The product contains strains that have the ability to produce good floc structure. This helps to produce a biomass that will settle well and produce a clear final effluent. Since many chemicals can prove to be toxic to the micro-organisms that are responsible for nitrification it is important to efficiently degrade these compounds so that toxicity to nitrifiers is reduced. The cultures in Biofixit 5400GC can provide this function. This is a key benefit from the use of the product since nitrification can be slow to restore once it is lost. The strains in the product have been isolated from the natural environment so they work in harmony with the existing biomass and increase its overall efficiency so that plant performance is restored as quickly as possible.

The type of systems in which Biofuture 5400GC can be used include

·  Activated sludge

·  Sequencing batch reactors

·  Pure oxygen systems

·  Aerated lagoons

·  Biotowers

The microbial strains are produced as single pure cultures, harvested, stabilised on a cereal base and blended together to produce the final product. Extensive checks are conducted throughout the process to ensure the purity and quality of the product.
