Packaging
Dried powder on bran carrier
Pail:  10kg  approximately 22 pounds
20 x 500g water soluble packages  which is 20 (twenty) 1.1 pound water soluble packages.

Key Features

Provides through a six (6) strain Bacillus  blend optimal activity and enzyme production across a broad range of environmental conditions.
Enhances the effectiveness of most biological waste treatment systems used to treat organic material.
Provides effective growth and treatment across broad pH and temperature ranges.
Has facultative organisms-works in both aerobic and anaerobic environments.
Is all natural, non-toxic, and non-GMO.
Is stable-two year shelf life.

The specific number of strains was determined in order to provide the most complete, robust product possible and then they were enhanced by adding a proprietary blend of micronutrients and biostimulants.

Industries

Pulp/Paper;  Food Ingredient;  Beverage;  Meat;  Dairy;  Petroleum;  Pharmaceutical

Dosage:

Typical Industrial Lagoon:  41.8 pounds per million gallons of water.

Dairy:  Monthly dosage of 1.1 pound (one water soluble pouch) per:

    • 100,000 lbs of milk produced if 100% of waste goes into the lagoon.
    • 200,000 lbs of milk produced if 50% of waste goes into the lagoon.
    • 300,000 lbs of milk produced if 25% of waste goes into the lagoon.
  • At the 100% capture rate = 29 pounds per month per 1000 cows.
  • At the 50% capture rate = 14.5 pounds per month per 1000 cows.
  • At the 25% level rate = 7.25 pounds per month per 1000 cows.

Too much math?

  • At the 100% capture rate = Three 1.1-pound pouches per month per 100 cows.  Basically 1 twenty pouch pail per month.
  • At the 50% capture rate =  One-and-a-half  1.1-pound pouches per month per 100 cows.
  • At the 25% level rate = Seven 1.1 pound pouches per month per 100 cows.

First treatment should be 3 times monthly amount and if not treated for more than three months, then restart by making the next treatment as if it were the first.

Water Temperature range  45-1200 F  Water Temperature Optimum  59-104°F (15-40°C)

Description

BioKix-Plus© Dairy Lagoon Waste Treatment Bacillus has added micronutrients and biostimulants to its powerful 6 strain standard product BioKix Dairy Lagoon Waste Treatment Bacillus.

Methane Reduction Through Bioaugmentation

BioKix has submitted a grant request to determine if bioaugmentation using BioKix-Plus© Dairy Lagoon Waste Treatment Bacillus will reduce methane as a viable alternative to capital and labor intensive investments.  Success with this bioaugmentation trial will allow both large and small dairies to implement a simple and inexpensive methodology to achieve methane reduction and simultaneously benefit from odor reduction and full decomposition of solids.

Dairy manure lagoons are inherently anaerobic (lack oxygen). The bacteria in raw manure needs oxygen to decompose manure waste and whatever degradation occurs will occur under septic conditions which convert hydrogen and sulfur to form hydrogen sulfide and transform carbon into methane. The right strains of bacillus packaged with micro-nutrients do not need oxygen to decompose waste quickly and they feast on organics like sulfur and carbon. The initial and long term cost of methane reduction bioaugmentation using BioKix-Plus© Dairy Lagoon Waste Treatment Bacillus to a dairy would be between 10 cents and 40 cents per lactating cow per month.

Lagoons

Lagoons are inherently anaerobic (lack oxygen).  Raw bacteria stops decomposing in the absence of oxygen.  The lagoon doesn’t decompose solids if left on its own and degradation must occur under septic conditions which are slow, odorous, and yield incomplete conversions of waste. Some of the untreated lagoon biological processes convert hydrogen and sulfur to form hydrogen sulfide and transform carbon into methane. Other carbon will be converted to organic acids that create low pH conditions in the basin and make the water more difficult to treat and promote odor formation.

Animal waste will only partially decompose on its own.  What does not decompose either floats and forms a solid crust or sinks to the bottom and stops decomposing. Partially decomposed waste will also stick to the sides of lagoons.  Deep accumulations of sludge on the lagoon floors and sides require frequent removal by tractors or the lagoon will become too small to hold the amount of waste coming in.  Those removed solids have to be stored elsewhere on the far
