The nitrification process is a complexe, sensitive and slow reaction that requires specific environmental conditions in order to work.
The most common bacterial strains involved in the transformation of ammonia to nitrate are from the genus Nitrosomonas and Nitrobacter. These sensitive strains require a strict aerobic environement and sufficient alkalinity to perform the conversion. They are slow to reproduce and may be easily inhibited by cold water temperature or the presence of a inhibitory organic load (BOD).
Bio-STAR NitroBac contains a bacterial consortium that allows rapid recovery of nitrification and the process maintenance in optimal conditions.
However, if the inhibitory conditions are maintained (high BOD, temperature, toxic environment) and that ammonia is the targer element to treat, Bio-STAR Industrie is what you need. Composed of heterotrophic strains, especialy developed to trive in difficult environments, the bacteria in Bio-STAR Industrie have the ability to fix ammonia directly in there metabolism.
