Biological treatment and reliance on bacteria is not new or novel; it has played a central role in conventional waste treatment throughout the history of mankind. What is new however, is our growing understanding of the natural processes and how we can utilize bacteria for industrial, agricultural and residential applications in breaking down organic waste thereby enhancing the bio degradation process fundamental to natural recycling and sanitation clean-ups.
“More than US$ 2 billion have been spent from 1993 to 2000 to clean up the Dianchi Lake in China’s scenic Yunnan province. But the investments have produced little if any payoff because they have not addressed the root sources of pollution such as agricultural runoff. The central and provincial governments are now looking for innovative ways to address the problem.“ Quoted from an online April 2000 report by the U.S. Embassy Beijing.

This 12-acre office park in Florida was designed with a one-acre pond at its bottom edge for water retention. However, as the surrounding areas were maintained with fertilizers and pesticides the pond became filled with surface scum creating a very unattractive eyesore. The primary points of pollution were run-off from fertilizer applied by the lawn care company, grass clippings from the lawn maintenance company, storm water from the parking lot, and debris from surrounding trees. The pond had been previously treated by a different company with chemical algaecide and blue dye to remediate algae but this treatment was not effective long-term.
