We have applied Biological Innovation to develop better cleaning solutions and more effective products that are accessible for all who want to omit harsh chemicals in their cleaning routine.
Our Biological Innovation method ensures that our cleaning products are safe and environmentally friendly.
In simple terms, unlike harmful and hazardous cleaning chemicals, biological cleaning products work by introducing specially selected biological bacteria into the cleaning process to treat the problem of organic waste and related lingering odour.
These friendly bacteria in turn produce specific enzymes which break down large organic waste particles and turn it into natural substances namely water (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2).
The friendly, non-pathogen bacteria feed off the changed structure of the organic waste, thereby creating more enzymes to prolong the positive work it is doing; an enzyme factory. As waste is reduced, the lingering odour that is associated with it is also eliminated; at the source.
Bio-enzymatic cleaning products, unlike harmful and hazardous cleaning chemicals, is a targeted approach to treating waste and odour at the source, rather than a scatter-gun method. Biological cleaning products work differently to voluminous cleaning chemicals and are safer for humans and better for the environment.
Bacteria vs Enzymes vs Chemicals
What Are Bacteria, Enzymes and Chemicals?
Bacteria are living cells which have the capabilities of consuming wastes of different types, reproducing, and actually producing enzymes.
Better said, bacteria are the factories that produce enzymes. When the right bacteria are present in the right quantities and in the right conditions, they produce enzymes much more economically than people can manufacture them.
Enzymes are NOT alive. They are complex chemicals produced by bacteria. They cannot reproduce, or actually consume waste. They speed up chemical reactions without getting used themselves. However, enzymes are all proteins, and some enzymes attack proteins. Therefore, enzyme usefulness is limited by digestion from other enzymes.
Chemicals are NOT alive. Chemicals include soaps, harsh acids and bases, solvents, and enzymes. Chemicals do not reproduce themselves.
Chemicals can be used to mimic the properties of bacteria or enzymes, but they are environmentally harmful, not as efficient, and potentially hazardous to human health.
How Do Bacteria, Enzymes and Chemicals Work?
Bacteria consume waste materials. When bacteria consume waste, they convert the waste into safe by-products – carbon dioxide and water. When the waste materials are very complex; such as hardened grease or uric scale buildup; bacteria actually produce enzymes to break down the complex waste into simple compounds that the bacteria can consume.
Enzymes are not capable of consuming waste materials, such hardened grease, uric scale, or ammonia. Rather, all that they can do is convert complex wastes into simple wastes. Bacteria are still needed to consume the waste material – enzymes alone will not do the job. An enzyme product only has half the tools necessary to get the job done right!
Chemicals can oxidize hardened grease, uric scale and ammonia, but only very harsh and dangerous chemicals can accomplish this job. Less hazardous chemicals are generally not effective in a plumbing environment for tough jobs like organic waste digestion. Also, chemicals have considerable toxicity issues, and are likely to aquatic plants and organisms, wildlife, and the general environment.
Which System is best for the Environment?
Bacteria contained in biological cleaning products are 100% natural, safe, and non-pathogenic. The bacteria in these products are not genetically engineered or altered in any way. Since bacteria both degrade complex waste & consume the by-products, less pollution is discharged into the environment.
The bacteria in these products also consume calcium, uric salts and ammonia. Properly selected bacteria are the environmentally superior solution.
Enzymes are not necessarily bad for the environment, but they do not have the advantages that the biological cleaning products’ bacteria provide. Again, enzymes do not actually consume wastes; they simply break complex compounds into simpler compounds. Bacteria are still needed to finish the job.
Therefore, enzymes alone have limited benefits.
Chemicals are often bad for the environment, and they do not have the advantages that the biological cleaning products’ bacteria provide. Chemicals can be used for some treatment, such as chlorine removal, heavy metal removal, and pH adjustment. But they are neither effective, economical nor environmentally appropriate for removal of uric salts, calcium, ammonia, nitrite, or sludge.
