A guide to the function of our bacterial digestants and how they go to work to digest organic waste.
The information on this page outlines the biological process of bacterial digestion. This process is responsible for the digestion of organic waste, no matter where it occurs. With minor variations, this same process digests waste in:
Bacterial digestion is the process of bacteria consuming organic matter. The bacteria feed on the organic waste, deriving nutrition for growth and reproduction. Using complex chemical reactions, the organic waste is metabolized down to water and carbon dioxide (the final metabolic waste products), providing the bacteria with energy to sustain their life. It may be simply shown by the following equation:
Organic Waste + Oxygen Bacteria Water + Carbon Dioxide
Organic waste is consumed by the bacteria, used as nutrients by the bacteria, and is no longer present to produce clogs, odors, sludge, pollution, or unsightly mess.
