Our award-winning biotech research and patents started with water and wastewater over 20 years ago, with a focus on biological remediation.
Our natural A*LIVE bioproducts are ideal for dugouts, storm ponds, large lakes and aquaculture to naturally cycle nutrients, restore balance and clear up problematic conditions. This same biotechnology is effective and economical for septic systems and municipal wastewater.
Research & Results
For over 40 years, research has supported the theory that bacteria is useful in breaking down organic matter and cycling nutrients. A number of municipal wastewater operations utilize nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria for this purpose.
Over the past 20 years, using the same logic, our research with bodies of water has documented excellent results in addressing levels of sludge, dealing with odour issues and ensuring water clarity. Our dream was to treat large bodies of water, which necessitated the fine-tuning of our brewing technology. Today, we have the BrewTus, which allows us to brew enough beneficial bacteria to treat massive bodies of water.
Today, our most recent research has confirmed our bioproducts are beneficial in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS), where the flavour and overall health of fish is dramatically improved.
PONDS & DUGOUTS
Our A*LIVE Pond ComboPack consists of a two-part, multi purpose, biological kit. Each kit includes 1 gallon of ultra-concentrated, liquid bacteria for fast acting results (A*LIVE Pond), and one slow-release, biodegradable A*LIVE EcoSock for long-lasting protection.
Our ComboPacks can restore large ponds and dugouts to a healthy, balanced state. This all natural product is odourless and contains no toxic chemicals harmful to people, animals or aquatic life.
Lakes can become catch basins for many sources of nutrient pollution. Excess nitrogen and phosphorus from animal or fish waste, stormwater runoff, grass clippings, or leaves and fertilizers are just a few examples of nutrient pollution.
Lakes overloaded with these nutrients can experience depletion of oxygen, fish kills, excessive weed growth, or harmful algae blooms that negatively impact water quality.
Chemical treatments, washouts and runoff are all common events that can negatively impact the abundance or activity of beneficial microbes in an aquatic environment.
Brewing sludge-digesting and nitrifying bacteria on-site will increase beneficial microbial populations and balance the ecosystem in the lake.
We believe Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) technologies have a crucial role to play in helping aquaculture feed a growing planet, while reducing our environmental footprint.
Our approach to RAS water treatment is based on our long experience in wastewater treatment, where it is common to use bio-augmentation to ‘steer’ a biofilter over time.
Recent research has proved that using our RAS Right bacteria in these systems has reduced and almost completely eliminated off-flavour in a number of different fish species.
A*LIVE Septic is an all-natural, non-toxic blend of beneficial bacteria designed to knock down sulfide odours, digest sludge, reduce excess buildup in sluggish septic tanks, unclog drain fields and improve final discharge.
Using A*LIVE Septic, before your tank needs to be pumped out, can reduce the frequency of pumping and restore your tank to peak efficiency. A*LIVE Septic is very effective for RV's, pit toilets and other septic applications.
For municipalities, culturing sludge digesting and nitrifying bacteria on-site results in bottom-line savings by increasing overall efficiencies and greatly reducing handling costs associated with sludge, organic solids, and fats/oils/grease, as well as lowering use of polymers and other chemical agents.
