Aquaculture

Ecological Laboratories’ aquaculture products represent the most environmentally compatible approach to handling common aquaculture problems. The reason for this is simple. All waste, particularly organic, must be recycled in nature order to continually replenish the critical building blocks of life.

Ecological Laboratories’ MICROBE-LIFT® aquaculture products contain a full consortium of bacteria, including aerobic, facultative, anaerobic, chemotropic and photosynthetic species and may contain enzymes and vital nutrients to accelerate natural processes. Our aquaculture products are 100% natural and are safe for humans, wildlife, aquatic life and the environment. Ecological’s products contain no GMOs.

Using our technologies shrimp farmers and fish processors will experience cleaner water while at the same time be able to recycle waste as a food source and increase yield in the growing process. Result… improved cost and operational efficiencies, and higher profits.

Composting

Composting is an aerobic, auto-thermophilic biological process, designed to reduce the volume of biodegradable organic waste by converting a portion of the carbon to carbon dioxide through respiration.  Ecological Laboratories formulations are easy to incorporate into most composting processes. Our products are highly stable preparations of bacteria that includes aerobic heterotrophs (several of which are thermophiles), facultative anaerobes, anaerobes, chemosynthetic and photosynthetic organisms capable of accelerating many biological processes.

Bio-Gas

Ecological Laboratories has successfully supplied the Industrial, Environmental, Agricultural and Wastewater sectors with environmentally friendly and sustainable energy producing solutions to their waste management operations. Ecological Laboratories bacterial formulations are extremely efficient in stabilizing and maximizing the anaerobic digestion processes in the digester. Concurrent reductions in sludge and increases in biogas for energy has been a performance factor in most cases.

Cow manure will produce methane biogas via anaerobic digestion. By converting cattle manure into methane biogas instead of letting it decompose, global warming gases could be reduced by 99 million metric tons. Biogas is a sustainable resource because its production is continuous, and does not result in net increases of carbon dioxide.
