What is Bio-Kat?
A natural bio-cellular activator sewage additive product containing a blend of proprietary constituents.
Does not contain microbes.
Is a microbial metabolic stimulant blend used to decrease corrosion, hydrogen sulfide, FOG, bio-solids, ammonia, and polymer.
Converts the collection system to a pre-treatment step by increasing overall biodegradability in the sewer collection systems.
Is a proprietary blend of various constituents that enhances an anoxic degradation in the sewer lines at an ORP of around -100 mV instead of -300 mV, which causes the production H2S gas and mercaptans.
Where is Bio-Kat Used?
Typical application of Bio-Kat. The dosing unit provides an industry-first, compact, and unobstructive dosing equipment footprint.
Above ground drums and totes are used for forcemain applications.
Corrosion and hydrogen sulfide gases reduced by 90% in most areas being treated.
Odor complaints reduced significantly.
Emergency call outs due to FOG reduced from 87/year to 3/year.
Elimination of contractual services for FOG gravity main lateral jetting; lift station vactor truck.
Reduction in biosolids.

Operation & Maintenance
NRP provides a full turn-key service
Treatment cost is calculated based on total daily flow
Typically 25% to 45% less expensive than traditional chemical treatment.
Long-term capital expenditure savings due to corrosion reduction
Based on the H2S data from the New Orleans Parish study, the estimated savings was $4.1M/year.
Significant savings due to near elimination of FOG emergency service callouts (SSOs)
Hollywood, FL emergency call outs due to FOG reduced from 87/year to 3/year.
Elimination contractual services for FOG gravity main lateral jetting; lift station vactor truck.
Optimization of WWTP operations (Reduction of BOD, TSS, FOG, and Biosolids).
