Enzymes are the bacterium’s
chefs; they prepare the meal for consumption by the bacteria.
Enzymes are proteins that form chemical reactions that breakdown
the substrate into smaller more palatable bits for the bacteria.
Enzymes are so good at their job they can create up to 30
million chemical reactions per second. Here is an example
of “Step Degradation”: long chain hydrocarbons (oil) is first
broken down into simple fats, then into simple sugars and
consumed by the bacteria in Hydro-Biodigesters.
Bacteria produce their
own enzymes but will quickly acclimate to the most readily
available food source. By including the correct enzymes into
our formulas the targeted substrate becomes the most readily
available food source. Later, when the bacteria start producing
their own enzymes, they have adapted to the proper food source
and thereby produce the proper enzyme for breaking down that
particular substrate. Watch out for products that
say “bacteria with enzymes” by reading the fine
print you will find they say “our bacteria produce enzymes”.
This is very misleading, all bacteria produce enzymes.
Lab Grade Purified
Enzymes are the most expensive ingredient in our
products. Each strain is hand selected and thoroughly checked
before replication. Make no mistake, putting impure enzymes
into your product creates a confused bacterium. Its like giving
someone several road maps to follow and not telling them which
one is to the correct destination.
There are over 3,000
known bacterial strains. Our bacteria and enzymes are selected
for their ability to aggressively breakdown the targeted substrate.
First, we select only facultative strains that can operate
in aerobic (with oxygen) or anaerobic (oxygen depleted) situations.
Our bacteria are most effective in an aerobic state working
5-7 times faster. We also take into consideration other factors
like resistance to; high and low pH, chemical shock and temperature.
Biodigester products can tolerate a pH of 4.5 to 9.5 without
dieing off, but…the closer to neutral pH of 7 the better.
They are resistant to disinfectants like chlorine up to 150
PPM and remain active in temperature ranges of 50°-140°
F. DNA matching insures that each correct strain of bacteria
Grow Out and
Once the correct bacteria
are selected for a particular formula they are propagated
to many, many times their numbers, then flash frozen and dried.
Once put into a state of dormancy they are microencapsulated
to protect them from moisture. This is a patented process.
Targeted enzymes along with micro and macronutrients are added
finishing off the formula.
Micro And Macronutrients
To make our bacteria
start reproducing immediately upon activation key nutrients
are supplied providing them instant food. These nutrients
supply a well rounded diet until the enzymes provided in the
formula start breaking down the substrate and serving it up
to the bacteria.
bacteria are seldom found in high enough numbers to obtain
the fast breakdown rates provided by Hydro-Biodigesters. By
supplying enough viable strains of bacteria with the targeted
enzymes in one location, the substrate is overwhelmed and
are so prolific they multiply by double every 15-20 minutes.
If you start out with one cell in fifteen minutes you have
two and so on. In 8 hours you will have 17-million and in
twenty-four hours you have a 1 with one hundred and twenty
six zeros behind it. Our products have a guaranteed cell count
of 2.7 trillion in each pound of dry formula and 450 billion
per gallon in our stabilized liquid.
