Elevator Shaft Odor Control

Elevator Shaft Odor Control Elevator shafts have a number of odor problems, including urine and feces. These problems can be solved by using beneficial microorganisms such as those contained in Custom GT Tabs.  Here’s a link to a white paper about the bioremediation of odors. Bioremediation of Odors for Elevator Shafts. Custom GT tabs contain specifically selected beneficial bacteria. These bacteria were chosen because of their ability to rapidly metabolize the organic materials, such as urine, that cause  the odors. Unlike chemical masking agents, bioremediation of odors actually digests and eliminates the odors. The bioremediation of odors has a number of industrial applications such as: elevator shaft odor control, car wash recycle water odor control and oil water separators. GT Tabs and Odor Control Custom Biologicals’ GT Tabs product is a live synergistic blend of selected microorganisms specifically chosen for their ability to rapidly metabolize organic material into carbon dioxide and water. The bacteria in Gt Tabs actually digests and eliminates the odor at its source rather than merely masking or attempting to chemically neutralize the odor. GT Tabs controls odor in different ways depending upon the origin of the odor. If the odor is produced by indigenous bacterial decomposition of organic material such as sewage or urine, the bad...

International Distributor Opportunities

International Distributor Opportunities with Custom Biologicals International distributor opportunities are plentiful at Custom Biologicals. In fact, we currently have over 40 international distributors representing over 25 countries. Why so many international distributors? Well, we try to make it easy for our customers to do business with Custom regardless of their location, but there are several distinct advantages to becoming an international distributor of Custom Biologicals. Advantages for International Distributors of Custom 1. Concentrated Products The use of concentrated products is a tremendous advantage of working with Custom Biologicals. Here’s why; Concentrated products: Greatly reduced shippings costs and shipping times. Reduced shipping costs and shipping times is so important that I’ll use an example to further explain. Recently, I was working on an international order where the client wanted a finished product. The estimate shipping cost was $700 and shipping time 3 months. This same order, using concentrated products had a shipping cost of $70 and a shipping time of 2-3 days.  Lower inventory requirements means less money out of pocket. Allows for customization of the finished product. Allows for easy private labeling. 2. Private Labeling & Exclusive Agreements Custom Biologicals allows private labeling and rebranding of all of our products. Exclusive Agreements for some countries are available. Minimums and some restrictions may...

FAQ’s about Bioaugmentation of Wastewater

FAQ’s about Bioaugmentation of Wastewater Frequently asked questions about the bioaugmentation of wastewater. Q. What is bioaugmentation? A. Bioaugmentation is simply the addition of specifically selected microorganisms (mainly bacteria) to wastewater. When properly implemented bioaugmentation of wastewater will improve the performance of the plant. Q. I’ve heard about using “bugs” and bioremediation but isn’t that just snake oil? A. In the past, there were a lot of snake oil salesman peddling magic bacteria that could do wonderful things at treatment plant. Bioaugmentation companies had a reputation worse than that of a sleezy lawyer. The myth continue because treatment plant operators normally have a background in engineering, not biology. The wastewater engineers found very little math to evaluate wastewater treatment bacteria. So instead of bioaugmentation, most industrial and municipal wastewater treatment plants used polymers and chemicals to treat their wastewater problems. Q. So what can bacteria and bioaugmentation really do? A. First, its important to remember that bacteria are alive. They have certain nutrient requirement that they need to live, grow, and reproduce. Here’s a quick list of the most important parameters: Dissolved Oxygen – Greater than .5mg/L Temperature – 50-95 degrees F. pH 6-9 Ammonia 1-3 mg/L Phosphate .5-2 mg/L Yes, a wastewater treatment plant can operate out side...

The Role of Bacteria in the Industrial Wastewater Treatment Process 3

The Role of Bacteria in the Industrial Wastewater Treatment Process 3 Industrial Wastewater Treatment Enzymes in biochemical reactions act as organic catalysts. The enzymes become part of the reaction but are not themselves changed by the reaction. This is done by first the enzyme and the substrate coupling forming and enzyme-substrate complex. After the reaction is complete, the enzyme is released for catalyzing another reaction. Okay, so now we have some general information about the biochemical reactions of bacteria and their enzymes. However, these chemical reactions occur within all bacteria, not just those in industrial wastewater and sewage treatment. So lets get back to the subject at hand – the role of bacteria in the industrial wastewater treatment process. All bacteria, useful or otherwise, in a flow of industrial wastewater got there by happenstance. They remain, eat and reproduce because there is a food supply available to them. Remember bacteria have only thing on their mind; live, grow and reproduce. They are completely unconcerned about the quality of their workmanship as determined by your wastewater laboratory chemist. Since it’s true that almost all industrial wastewater treatment plants are designed to take advantage of one of natures essential resources, the decomposition of organic material by bacterial activity, then we should...

The Role of Bacteria in the Industrial Wastewater Treatment Process Part 2

The Role of Bacteria in the Industrial Wastewater Treatment Process Part 2 Here’s the next part of our series on bacteria in the industrial wastewater treatment process. The typical growth rate curve of a bacterial culture, known as the bacterial growth rate curve, is a result of the four following phases of bacterial growth: The Bacterial Growth Cycle Lag Phase (Sometimes called initial phase). When bacteria are first introduced into an environment, little growth will take place until they adapt to their new environment. In fact, it generally takes several generation times before the bacterial numbers begin to significantly increase. In practice, the lag phase typically lasts three hours or longer.  Log Phase (Logarithmic Phase). Once full growth and cell reproduction is underway, the bacterial growth curve develops the log phase. This is the phase where the bacteria are rapidly dividing. This phase is limited by the food source and waste buildup. Stationary Phase. This phase occurs when some bacteria are growing and reproducing while others are dying. The actual number of living, viable organisms will remain fairly constant. Death Phase (Sometimes called log death phase). After a period of time, the environment becomes loaded with bacterial waste products, food supply is depleted, and the entire system begins to...
