How does it work?
Hundreds of strains were analysed and tested to identify those that produced the most effective enzymes for the degradation of fats, starch, cellulose and protein:
- Lipase breaks down fats, oils and greases
- Amylase breaks down starch, e.g. potatoes, pasta
- Cellulase breaks down cellulose, e.g. vegetable matter
- Protease breaks down proteinaceous matter, e.g meats, cheeses
- Consists of spore forming bacteria which have a number of advantages:
- The spore coat is highly resistant to temperature, physical and chemical challenges.
- Spores germinate and flourish in the right conditions, i.e. when warmth, nutrients and water are present. The bacteria revert to the spore form when conditions deteriorate, germinating when conditions become favourable once more. This provides valuable residual protection.
- The bacteria form biofilms on the interior surfaces of grease traps and wastewater pipework, providing a continuous and renewable source of enzymes for the removal of FOG and other organic matter.
- Daily dosing ensures that a thriving biofilm is maintained while allowing the bacteria to spread with the flow of water.
- All strains used are Class 1 bacteria and are safe for human and kitchen use
- Fermented under sterilised conditions to remove any chance of harmful contamination or incorrect strains.
- Contains preservatives to ensure that the bacteria remain inactive until use and prevent product contamination once dispatched.
- Local UK Production and supply chain reduces CO2e impact from transport
- Technologies are renewable and sustainable, sourced from plant extracts, fermentation, microbes and manufacturing by-products reducing CO2e and environmental toxicity.
- Post Consumer Recycled bottles provide a circular life cycle reducing CO2e and removing physical plastic pollution.
- Highly concentrated to reduce plastic, transport and storage costs and environmental impact.
- Readily biodegradable (99% over <28 days).
- 0% manufacturing waste.
- Not tested on animals.
- Excludes all ‘watch list’ raw materials.
