Organic Products Company contracted with a firm in the field of microbiology to formulate a microbial product which would use OPC’s Agripro (the organic Humate mined by OPC) as the substrate and accomplish the desired results. After several months of laboratory research, the Histosol Bio 10 product was ready for field trials. The microbiologists discovered that the OrganicPro substrate was an excellent incubation medium for microorganisms. The result was the birth of Bio 10.
The substrate of Agripro has an extremely high concentration of organic matter, packed with micro and macronutrients that provide the microbes with an excellent food source. Agripro was described as a “steroid” for microbes. The major problem associated with the use of microbial-
Bio 10 was added to the mill aeration pond (24 million gallon daily waste stream) at the rate of 2 PPM for a 10-
The BOD5 decreased to an average of 16,000, down 27,875, or 63.5%, following the treatment.
Bio 10 was extremely effective in rapidly reducing the TSS and BOD to the targeted levels in the mill aeration pond. The product provided Stone Container with a very cost-
