Product Technical Bulletin


DEGRADE–PS is a blend of selected bacteria with organic degradation properties specifically for industrial wastes. This formula still handles odors, aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons and phenolic compounds, but will now degrade fatty acids, tannery wastes, pharmaceuticals, ketones and surfactants too. This product responds to high organic overloads or uncharacterized upsets with higher growth and utilization rates, providing improved industrial plant stability.
Suggested applications : Manufacturing of paint, pigment, phenolic resins, rubber, styrene, lubricants, corn sweetener, starch, surfactants, petrochemicals, refining of petroleum and natural gas, dairies, fruit processing, distilleries, tanneries, poultry processing, and vegetable oil recovery.
  • Bacteria Count
  • 5 Billion Colony Forming Units/gram
  • Appearance
  • Free flowing brown powder
  • Odor
  • Yeast Like
  • Cultures grow in either the presence or absence of oxygen.
  • Optimum choice for handling recalcitrant COD
  • Reduces toxicity so that nitrifying bacteria can initiate ammonia removal
  • Effective over a wide temperature range (7oC -40oC)
  • Effective over a wide pH range (6.0 to 8.0), with ideal performance near 7
  • Degrades a wide variety of difficult compounds which are toxic to naturally occurring bacteria.
  • Enhances odor control through degradation of malodorous organic acids and sulfur compounds.
Non-toxic, non-corrosive, safe to handle and store when used as directed.

For concentrated bioremediation, maintain at least 1.0 mg/l of Ammonium nitrogen and 0.5 mg/l of Ortho-Phosphate. The strains in DEGRADE – PS degrade most toxic chemicals, particularly hydrocarbons, aerobically, requiring at least 1 ppm of oxygen, with 2 to 5 ppm being ideal. Hydrogen sulfide remediation can be performed both aerobically and anaerobically, with the addition of sodium nitrate.
For general application rates for lagoon or activated sludge system application : Check the metric dosage chart of DEGRADE RANGE OF PRODUCTS for dosing. Mechanical aeration may be needed where natural aeration is deficient.
Although product may be applied dry, either loose or in soluble packets, for optimum bacterial performance, we recommend that you hydrate DEGRADE-PS before application. Thoroughly mix each Kilogram of dry product with10 liters of warm (approx.28 - 30oC) water without chlorine. Allow the mixture to hydrate for two hours, stirring vigorously every half hour. After final settling, carefully pour off the top liquid layer for use, squeeze all liquid from the bran that has settled into the liquid and either dispose of the remaining bran, or toss into the system.

DEGRADE–PS is packaged in 25 & 50 Kilogram drums. Store in a cool dry place. Avoid inhalation of dust. Wash hands with warm, soapy water after handling.
