FAQ's

Why FBF Organics Bio Activators?

FBF Organics offerings do not add any non-indigenous bacteria or enzymes at an application. They do enhance the activity of the indigenous organisms in situ . The simple addition of water (fresh) activates our product. It is easy to use and therefore requires very little training of personnel. All of these factors translate into cost saving and environmentally friendly problem solving.

 

What happens when you introduce new organisms into the environment?

Finding and using bio-remedial solutions involves learning a great deal about the ecology of the particular environment. It might be "more ecological" if the organism that is introduced is one that is already found naturally in the environment that has become contaminated.

The effect of introducing many more of a particular organism would have to be verified (exceeding certain levels might pose other problems for the environment). FBF Organics Bio-Activators does not introduce other organisms. The technology enhances the performance and activity of the existing organisms.

 

Where is FBF Organics made?

FBF Organics Bio-Activator offerings are a South African product produced in Pietermaritzburg, Kwa Zulu Natal.

 

What is Bioremediation?

Bio-remediation is the process of using a naturally occurring, safe and beneficial bio-activator to enhance the activity of indigenous (in the ground or in water) organisms that degrade environmentally harmful contaminants or offensive pollutants and turn them into non toxic compounds. Bio-remediation is a very effective and widely used applied clean up technology that can be used in, in situ or ex situ applications.

Background (Restoration) One of the most urgent problems being faced at a global level is the decontamination of soil and water due to domestic and industrial activities. Large polluted areas, besides having lost their eco-functionality, often represent a serious risk for human health. The policy of restoration of natural resources is thus a priority in developing, as wellas inindustrialized countries.

Background (Prophylactic) New international norms are demanding and governments are legislating minimum standards for industrial and domestic wastewater that is returned to a river system. In South Africa, legislation places responsibility squarely on the shoulders of the polluter. This is creating a new generation of industrial and domestic bulk water users that are very conscious of their outputs and are budgeting vast sums of money for cleaning operations that include bio-remediation.

 

What are the advantages of Bioremediation?

Bio-remediation is an attractive option for the remediation of organic waste and of hydrocarbon contaminants. The following are a few of the advantages and reasons why you should consider this innovative process and FBF Organics:
dot  The process is an ecologically safe and natural process. It is "natures way" of solving contamination problems.
dot  Odour removal is the first and timely, obvious sign, of the application.
dot  Bio-remediation is cost effective. The process is generally 60 - 70 % less costly than other technologies.
dot  There is no disruption of surrounding non-contaminated areas or industry.
dot  There is virtually no investment in "capital equipment"
dot  It can remediate areas that are not easily accessible or inaccessible to other technologies.
dot  Bio-remediation can be accomplished in situ thereby eliminating the hazard of off-site contamination caused by digging,hauling and transporting.
dot  Bio-remediation is very effective in industrial aerobic & anaerobic ponding or wastewater systems reducing sludge development by 40- 60 %
dot  The process poses no health or safety risks to your employees thereby reducing insurance costs.
