Odour & corrosion reduction
The removal or inhibition of both hydrogen sulphide and ammonia not reduces odour and create a safe working environment but also reduces odour complaint and phone calls from neighbours and the community. Apart from the obvious odour effect, hydrogen sulphide and ammonia are corrosive and damage pumps, pipes, machinery, buildings and other assets costing major capital expenditure to replace plant and machinery. BioProtect® Industrial Treatment protects these assets from the aggressive gas attacks on the equipment allowing for reduced maintenance and increased equipment life, deferring the requirement for replacement and saving money.
As a liquid it penetrates hard to reach places in industrial applications, including sewers, grease traps and sludge ponds to prevent blockages caused by fats, oil, grease and organic wastes. Controls ammonia, hydrogen sulphide and other offensive odours.
An environmentally friendly and powerful probiotic bacterium, Bacillus subtilis is found protecting plant roots around the world.
Bacillus subtilis is the bio-active that biodegrades substances found in industrial applications. It prevents the build-up of fat, grease and oils, and rapidly breaks down organic matter.
Blended as an extremely safe, pourable liquid product, non-toxic and considered non-pathogenic. Minimal Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required for application. Bacillus subtilis is considered a safe, benign organism. Both the American Society of Microbiology and US-FDA classify BioProtect® Industrial Treatment as a Generally Regarded As Safe: “GRAS” organism. This means it can be safely handled by employees and customers without concern for their health or the environment.

Dosage rates vary according to the application and area of use. Typical dosage rates for wastewater are between 500 – 1000 ppm.
For odour control and degradation of organic material, Industrial Treatment can be sprayed, fogged or misted directly onto the problem areas that are generating the odour. An authorised BioProtect® distributor should be consulted prior to use to determine the most effective program.

Managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the goal of the BioPreferred program is to increase the use of biobased products. Biobased products are derived from plants and other renewable agricultural, marine, and forestry materials and provide an alternative to conventional petroleum derived products.
As we seek out greener products to lessen our everyday impact on the planet, USDA wants to make it easy to identify biobased products. The USDA Certified Biobased Product label assures that our product contains a verified amount of renewable biological ingredients. You can trust the label to mean what it says because our claims concerning the biobased content are certified and has been strictly monitored by USDA.
