Municipal Wastewater

Byo-Gon PX-109® Organic has proven time and time again to effectively work in wastewater treatment facilities in every market in which it has been tried. Using this product actually speeds up the treatment process and can do the following, based on application rates and points of injection:

  • Lower BOD (biological oxygen demand) and TSS (total suspended solids)
  • Reduce oil, grease, and sludge
  • Eliminate odors
  • Reduce sludge volume in the treatment facilities and lagoons

The degradation of soluble and suspended organic matter in a wastewater treatment plant is dependent on maintaining environmental conditions that maximize biological activity. The fact that final discharge waters still contain measurable BOD, TSS, NH3 (ammonia) and other organic compounds, as well as secondary solids (sludge), indicates this decomposition process did not go to completion. Something in the “environment” limited complete breakdown of this organic matter. Byo-Gon PX-109® Organic overcomes these limitations and pushes the naturally occurring biomass to more completely decompose this material.

Byo-Gon PX-109® Organic requires no special handling or equipment. It is non-toxic, non-flammable, non-corrosive and 100% organic material which is 100% biodegradable.

How do we know it works?

wastewater testing test tubeByo-Gon, Inc. is a US distributor for LuminUltra’s ATP measurement technology. We have been working with this advanced technology from New Brunswick, Canada for over 6 years to identify and quantify how Byo-Gon PX-109® Organic stimulates biological activity in wastewater. In fact, our test studies have shown marked increases in microbial activity, as measured with ATP, and we can demonstrate this improvement via our network of sales representatives and resellers. Our Australian reseller (Royce Water Technologies) is also actively involved in the distribution of this advanced measurement system in their area.

Quantifying microbial activity (and subsequent increases with application of Byo-Gon PX-109® Organic) has never been easier. Contact us for a system evaluation today.  We can show you how Byo-Gon PX-109® Organic can increase cellular metabolism, Active Biomass Ratios, and reduce Biological Stress Index for your site.

What is Byo-Gon PX-109®?

Byo-Gon PX-109® Organic is NOT a bacteria, nor an enzyme. It is an alkaloid, Xeronine, that was developed and patented by the Research Corporation of the University of Hawaii.

The alkaloid Xeronine is a cell growth accelerator that acts as a precursor to enzymatic activity at the cellular level. At the cellular level, enzymes govern the rates and types of biologic reactions that take place. Enzymes require specific environmental conditions for them to function. If these are not met, specific reactions do not take place and biological processes slow down. At the cellular level Xeronine acts as an “on-switch”, restarting enzymatic processes and promoting more rapid cell growth, overcoming limiting environmental conditions.
