One component of maintaining any biological system is providing the elements required by the microorganisms in a bio-complex that is conducive to their metabolic activity. NUTREX™ is a concentrated blend of compounds that promote accelerated biological growth in the waste stream.

The nutritional requirement of bacteria is generally satisfied by nutrients contained in the waste stream. This includes nitrogen, water and carbon which is derived from the organic waste which may also contain toxic elements that restrict efficient biological break-down of waste matter. Addition of NUTREX™, supplies ACT®, natural buffers, bio-stimulants, co-enzymes and rare-earth nutrient elements which have shown to enhance the digestion cycle.

When added in the non-sterilized or biological treatment phase of a wastewater treatment plant, NUTREX™ will improve biochemical oxidation and liquidation of treated effluent, maintain plant stability and reduce plant-operating costs.

Benefits of use:

  • Improves degradation activity including enhanced general or specific organic removal efficiencies
  • Process stabilization, including shock-load resistance or intake buffering capacity
  • Reduction in COD and BOD levels
  • Increases dissolved oxygen levels
  • Reduction in odors
  • Faster reduction of sludge volume
  • Buffers pH in acidic environments
  • Activates aerobic and facultative bacteria

Application instructions:

NUTREX™ is highly concentrated and is ready to use.

Soil: apply 2.5–5 gallons per acre every 2 weeks with sprayer. Dilute in 50–100 gallons of water.

Wastewater: apply 2-3 parts per million (2-3 PPM) continuously by chemical feed pump or manually 2-3 times per day.

NUTREX™ performs best within a pH range of 5.0-9.5 with optimum near 7.0. Temperature affects microbial activity, with an approximate doubling in growth rate for each 10ºC (18ºF) temperature increase to an upper limit of approximately 40ºC (104ºF). Very low activity can be expected below 5ºC (41ºF).
