Biosmart Technologies - Harnessing Nature


The bacteria we use are non-pathogenic strains of Bacillus.
They produce a wide range of enzymes to degrade or digest organic matter.


An enzyme which degrades starch and similar carbohydrates e.g. rice, potatoes etc.
An enzyme which degrades cellulose and is effective on digesting paper
An enzyme which degrades fats, oils and greases (FOG's)
An enzyme which degrades proteins e.g. food residue.
An enzyme which degrades Uric Acid

How do enzymes work & why are they needed?

Enzymes work by breaking apart large, complex compounds (substrates) into smaller, more readily absorbed nutrients that the bacteria can absorb. Each enzyme is designed to unlock and break down a specific food source.

In today's hi-tech industries the use of harsh cleaning chemicals has become the norm. In most cases the drains and waste treatment plants are at full capacity. BioSmart Technologies have blended a range of microbiological products designed to help the 'natural' enzymes to cope with the high demand placed on them to quickly break down all types of organic waste and odours.
