Water treatment

bioregulator-bioaugmentator "BIOFOX" - The solution

       Aquatic plants of stable water reservoirs (lakes, ponds) tend to grow under the influence of nutrients, nitrates and phosphates present in the water. The main nutrient resource is blackwater and agricultural waste, which cause active algae growth, along with other types of vegetation. As a result, huge accumulations are formed on the walls and bottom of reservoirs. When vegetation dies and organic matter decomposes, a large amount of dissolved oxygen is consumed in the water, which leads to the creation of anaerobic conditions in the reservoir.
Phosphates and nitrates used as agricultural fertilizers, organic waste and cleaning detergents containing phosphate get into rivers and lakes, which causes their pollution near urban and agricultural areas, especially in the warm season. Once in a body of water, nutrient chemicals trigger the growth of algae, cyanobacteria and duckweed, which subsequently die and decompose, causing the complete consumption of dissolved oxygen on the water surface, and as a result the death of aquatic organisms, whose life depends on the oxygen in the body of water. Small lakes with a low oxygen content and rich in organic and nutrients are called eutrophic.

What happens to a body of water during eutrophication?

Biological changes
A significant increase in phytoplankton, blue-green algae and the extinction of other species
Activation of anaerobic fermentation
Aquaculture disease and extinction
Chemical changes
Dissolved oxygen level reduction to 0.5 mg/l instantly has a negative effect on the life of all aquaculture
When the level of dissolved oxygen is reduced to less than 0.5 mg/l, the organisms die. Significantly increased BOD and COD
The increase in concentrations of nitrogen-containing and phosphate compounds, along with other chemical elements.
Physical changes
The accumulation of the remains of dead animals and plants at the bottom, reducing the ability of the reservoir to circulate (organic matter)
The appearance of a brown shade and an unpleasant odor. Change of color to red, green, yellow, etc.

How to stop eutrophication?

а) Prevention of phosphate, nitrate and excess nutrient contamination


b) Control of contaminated water treatment during eutrophication.

It is also recommended to check the surface tension to determine the effects of divergents in water.

"BIOFOX"® in Action

         The decomposition of organic substances and suspended matter during biological treatment of the lakes and water bodies, provides sunlight, and, accordingly, the resumption of photosynthesis of vascular plants and the production of oxygen in water. At the same time, BIOFOX “neutralizes” the algae nutrition source formed as a result of biochemical processes in organic environment. In conditions of a decrease in available food sources and the stop of anaerobic process, algae do not survive, losing the fight against vascular vegetation.
        With the decomposition of organic substances, BIOFOX stops the process of their natural anaerobic fermentation, preventing the formation of methane (CH4), hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and derivatives of the mercaptans group. Due to the above-mentioned biological cycle, the aerobic process in the ecosystem progresses and prevails.

"BIOFOX"® and seaweed:
       The richest nutrient resources for algae - nitrogen (nitrites), phosphates and potassium, similar macro nutrients determine the growth of ordinary plants. The advantage of vascular plants is their ability to temporarily store nutrients, in contrast to algae, that instantly die in the absence of a nutrition source.
Usually, the presence of suspended matter and organic substances prevents sunlight from entering the body of water, thereby stopping the process of photosynthesis. The lack of oxygen creates anaerobic conditions and is the cause of the eutrophication of the water body. Anaerobic fermentation products are formed, accompanied by a putrid, marsh odor (hydrogen sulfide, methanethiols).
Using Biofox in eutrophied reservoirs has shown that the effect of the product significantly (by more than 70%) reduces the amount of suspended and dissolved substances in water; decomposes organic complex compounds; reduces the performance of compounds of the nitrogen group; significantly reduces the indicator of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), stops the anaerobic fermentation process; stimulates and forms an aerobic environment. The normal environment reservoir is fully restored. All changes and processes are observed already after the 2nd week of use.
