This product contains a proprietary micronutrient carrier which provides accelerated microbial germination and growth and microbial cultures that were selected for optimal enzyme production and the ability to function under a variety of environmental conditions.  This combination of superior microbial cultures and micronutrient system leads to the reduction of BOD, TSS and odors in pulp and paper systems.
