Green treatment for Greencore
Pulsonic Technologies has completed another Greencore bacterial waste treatment plant.
The company believes that in some cases the use of a chemical to treat a chemical is not the best environmentally-friendly solution.
It contains surface tension depressants and penetrants, which loosen and liquefy heavy grease deposits, assisting in their bio-degradation.
The major component of BCL 4000 is Yucca shidigera. This inhibits the activity of the enzyme urease, which converts nitrogen and urea to ammonia. Although the mode of action is unclear, the principal components of Yucca, saponin and sarasaponin, tend to immobilise the enzyme.
In wastewater bio-solids, the lack of odour being generated by the sludge material is generally attributed to activity against the anaerobic bacteria.
