Enzymes for Water and H2S Risk Reduction

Enzymes For Bio-Stimulated Wastewater Treatment

Did you know; By adding our waste water enzymes this significantly reduces odor, BOD and COD and sludge volumes. (Download our data sheets/PDF's below for more information)

Wastewater treatment has assumed great significance in today’s context where protecting the environment is a prime concern. 

Custom Enzymes formulated enzyme products effectively break down organic waste and increase the quality of wastewater effluent without the use of harsh chemicals, a major benefit is a reduction in odour.

Enzymes start degrading organic waste immediately upon addition while existing bacteria strains use the organic wastes as carbon and nitrogen sources for growth and effectively treat the system for the long term. 


The main objective of wastewater treatment is to treat the effluent before it is discharged so that the environment is not polluted. Wastewater treatment in general refers to the reduction of suspended and floatable material and the oxidization of biodegradable organic matter. 


Wastewater from the food processing industry contains carbohydrates, proteins, fats and pectinaceous materials that are barely decomposed by microbes during the activated-sludge treatment. To enhance the treatment of wastewater from these processing industries, a combination of specialized enzymes facilitates hydrolysis of BOD and renders it suitable for decomposition by activated sludge treatment and composting.

How can the effects of H2S be mitigated and why? 

With the introduction of specifically designed and tailored custom enzymes into wastewater processes, it is possible to achieve a significant reduction in sulfate (SO4) build-up. Thereby reducing the number of Sulfides (SO2) that can form at every stage within the process.

  • This can help protect workers from one of the leading causes of death in the industry.

  • It can protect infrastructure and save money by reducing the necessity to replace machinery and pipelines as often due to the reduced presence of hydrosulfuric acid. 

  • It will help local communities by reducing the foul odour from processes.

  • The chemicals involved are significantly reduced meaning treated water can be released or recycled with minimum worry.

Sulfates and metals are the most common pollutants in wastewater. Sulfate-containing wastewater is generated from food, paper and pulp, petroleum industries and mining.
