Enzymes and Odour Control

Image :

Enzymatic is a high performance, non-toxic and 100% biodegradable multiple enzyme at the forefront of the modern Australian biotechnology industry. It breaks down oils and greases in septic tanks, sludge treatment ponds, grease traps, floors, drains and pipes making it easier for the bacteria to consume any organic waste matter. At the same time, it rapidly eliminates odours.

Enzymatic is effective over a wide range of pH levels and temperatures. Because it is in a liquid form, bacterial stimulation is immediate and there are no residues. The use of enzymes to improve the biological degradation of organic matter is well known. It has been found especially advantageous to add quantities of a number of enzymes directly into septic tank systems and sludge treatment ponds so that catalytic reactions can digest organic impurities and stimulate and accelerate natural bacterial action.

Odour Elimination

Enzymatic works to eliminate odour by changing the molecular structure of the host environment. Reaction time is instantaneous. Normally present bacteria produce odours while decomposing nutrients. Hydrogen sulphide is the most infamous. Enzymatic does not produce malodorous compounds. Rather, it uses them in its unique metabolic process thus an advantageous synergistic relationship is formed. To control organic odour on tip face and in transfer stations Enzymatic is sprayed in a diluted form to capture the air born sulphides, return them to the ground to continue the digestion of the organic waste. Enzymatic is not a masking agent; it digests the cause of the odour so it cannot return. Enzymatic is passed by AQIS [ DPI ] and MAF[ NZ ] for use in food preparation areas for odour control and surface cleaning.

Grease Traps, Septic Tanks And Sludge Treatment Ponds

Enzymatic emulsifies and digests grease and other organic contaminants that cause expensive pump-outs and foul odours. With conditioned use, Enzymatic will keep grease traps, drain lines, garbage disposals, septic tanks, leach drains, and sludge treatment ponds free flowing and odourless. There are many organisms naturally in traps and lines. Few affect animal and vegetable fats and oils. In order to deal effectively with grease biologically, it is necessary to induce a population shift from undesirable to desirable organisms ( i.e., to dominate microbial activity). Bioaugumentation with Enzymatic accomplishes this dominance. Grease is digested by Enzymatic and converted to fatty acids, glycerol's, carbon dioxide and water. This process is called solubilisation. It inherently prevents rebinding of the grease recreating the problem further down the line as can happen when using chemicals and solvents. Some of the other by-products of solubilisation become nutrients for other bacteria present to further reduce accumulation.

Leach Drains & Sullage Pits

Enzymatic will rejuvenate clogged leach drains, sullage pits and restore the absorption field to full capacity eliminating and/or significantly reducing expensive maintenance

BOD's and Suspended Solids

Reduces levels of Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) by enzymolysis through decomposition or conversion of the contaminants. A Mr. Brian May of West Australia Water Authority has been conducting tests with Enzymatic over twenty four months and has continued to re order Enzymatic as reductions in BOD's and suspended solids in the order of 30- 40% are being achieved. The paper is being written but is at this stage six months over due. Brian May himself is enthusiastic about the products potential and has agreed to act as a verbal referee. Should you wish to contact him please phone our Brisbane office for contact details.


There are many users of Enzymatic who will testify that previously clogged and dysfunctional grease traps, septic tanks and leach drain systems have begun to operate effectively as a result of continual usage of Enzymatic. This process can take anything from a few weeks to a few months to take effect. It is our firm belief that if reconstruction were occurring then these systems would block up again relatively quickly. The evidence is the opposite with our largest user, Baldivis Poultry Pty Ltd who have been using the product for approximately for 4.5 years. His leach drain has never worked as well despite a four fold increase in his chicken processing works.
