What is the difference between aerobic bacteria and anaerobic bacteria?
Aerobic bacteria uses oxygen to thrive while anaerobic bacteria cannot survive in an environment saturated with oxygen.
What role do the bacteria have in eliminating odours?
Anaerobic decomposition (without oxygen) is a main cause of noxious odours. Anaerobes cause odours by producing Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), a colorless gas that smells like rotten eggs. Aerobic bacteria do not cause these odours since they produce Carbon Dioxide (CO2), a colourless and odourless gas.
What are the by-products of aerobic and anaerobic bioremediation?
Aerobic bacteria produce Carbon Dioxide (CO2) as a by-product while anaerobic bacteria produce Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), which can produce toxic and corrosive gases and liquids like Sulfuric acid.
Where should I apply the eco-tabs™?
There is a specific location for each application in which you would want to apply our tablets for optimal inoculation. In general, for a system that utilises flow to move the waste (grease traps, wastewater facilities) you want to position the tablets so the current passes through a plume of oxygen that our tablets create. For an application that retains the waste for future pumping or treatment evenly distribute the eco-tabs™ to ensure treatment of the entire tank. Start in the middle of the tank and then distribute the necessary dosage to areas without treatment.
