Biodyne South Africa, we are an innovative environmental biotechnology company
Our intent on harnessing the power of naturally occurring beneficial microorganisms for use in a variety of environmental applications. We manufacture products that provide economical and relevant solutions to many of today’s environmental issues.
With a diverse team of beneficial microorganisms present in high concentration levels, ENVIRONOC 401 is a natural way to promote the fundamental relationship between the soil and plant. The microbes that make up this robust team are not genetically modified, non-pathogenic, and 100% naturally occurring.
What is the Biodyne Difference? Our Approach
At Biodyne South Africa we understand the fundamental relationship between the soil and the plant. The soil is alive and is designed to feed the plant, in turn the plant is alive and is designed to feed the soil. Although this relationship is complex the simple truth is that this fundamental relationship is made possible through the activities of beneficial microorganisms. By establishing and maintaining a diverse population of beneficial microorganisms, the soil and plant will efficiently work together to maximise the plants growth and productivity. Without the presence and maintenance of a robust and diverse population of beneficial microorganisms yield potential is lost. This understanding is the Biodyne difference!
Bioremediation refers to the use of microbes (bio) to remove contaminants from the environment, thereby returning the resources to their "clean & natural" state (remediate).
Can external inoculation help?
Bioremediation use specially selected microbes with known degradation capabilities targeted to the particular environmental contamination. Bioremediation techniques are designed to get the contamination clean and back to a "natural state" completely.
Biodyne has developed microbial blends with special appetites for a variety of contaminants in many different applications. The success of bioremediation ultimately depends on the presence of capable microorganisms which can be properly "managed" to utilize their capabilities.
Biodyne-South Africa produces these capable microorganisms that have helped with hundreds of Bioremediation projects, and our microbes are a valuable tool in getting contaminated sites to closure quickly and completely. Please Contact Us for more information and project experience and examples.
The biological treatment of wastewater utilizes a variety of techniques to create optimal environmental conditions for the removal of organic matter using beneficial microorganisms. Basically any wastewater that packs an environmental impact needs to be treated before release. Biodyne-South Africa has several ENVIRONOC blends to help with many wastewater concerns and issues.
Types of wastewater
Wastewater can take many forms: domestic sewage from homes, food service establishments, commercial and industrial wastewater; industrial wastewater from manufacturing and servicing; wastewater generated washing equipment and floors; water generated while washing school buses, trucks or heavy equipment; industrial wastewater from food manufacturers, or a myriad of other similar examples.
Biodyne-South Africa has provided microbial products for a wide variety of wastewater projects with outstanding results. Inoculation with one or more of the ENVIRONOC blends has proven both beneficial and economical in these projects, and very beneficial for the environment. Feel free to contact us to learn more about our recent wastewater projects.
Biostimulation of Plants
Biostimulation of Plants
ENVIRONOC 401 Beneficial Microorganisms have demonstrated a number of benefits for a variety of plant species. By populating the rhizosphere with known beneficial and capable microorganisms, potential adverse populations may be reduced while at the same time providing the many skills of these added microbes to fulfill the special needs of the plant roots.
How can microbes stimulate plant growth?
The growing roots of plants have an intimate relationship with the soil around them. As they push through the soil, they endure significant abrasion to their protective layers leaving a trail of organic debris in their immediate vicinity (rhizosphere). Ubiquitous indigenous microorganisms may be able to utilise this debris as a food and energy source and begin to populate the area. While many of these indigenous strains may be harmless, some may be undesirable neighbours for the roots. Inoculated microbes can bring new talents to the area of the rhizosphere with potential advantages to the plants.
Beneficial Microorganisms that provide enhanced degradation of many polymers such as cellulose, chitin & related, lignin & related, increased efficiency for composting and vegetation degradation applications Over 25 Strains of Fresh, Viable, and NaturalMicrobes selected for their capabilities to provide Enhanced Composting, EnhancedAgricultural Field Stubble Digestion , Grass Thatch reduction, and other vegetation degradation
How can microbes enhance compost production and help with agricultural crop residue management, and contribute to grass thatch reduction?
Now that recycling and reuse have become the norm rather than the exception, composting has taken on a role of importance. Landfills now compost yard waste rather than simply burying it. Homeowners often compost their non-animal food wastes rather than putting it in the garbage. Flower and vegetable growers often compost crop cuttings to amend to new beds.
Farmers may plant new crops directly in the stubble left from the previous crop to save energy. Biodyne has assembled a very capable team of bacteria and fungi in Environoc 501 that have excellent ability to reduce many of the difficult polymeric components of vegetation waste.
They work with the indigenous plant inhabitants to optimize the composting process and degrade the compounds quicker. Environoc 501 has shown very good efficacy in Agricultural Crop Residue digestion applications as well as biological dethatch of grass. Specialized cellulose and lignin degrading and other microbes may assist in breaking down various crop and grass thatch residues that can help release nutrition and organic matter into the soil.
This biological digestion relieves many of the challenges associated with excess crop residue or grass thatch. Environoc 501 is a consortium of beneficial microbes selected for their special abilities to assist composting, crop residue management, and grass de-thatching applications.
Pond Muck Reduction
Pond Muck Reduction
Excessive muck layer or sludge is often the buildup of organics like dead vegetation, leaves, or grass clippings, as well as fish and fowl waste products. Proper inoculation with ENVIRONOC 301 can reduce the muck layer in ponds as well as clarify the water of organic waste.The microbial inoculation ensures a healthy colony of beneficial microorganisms that digest the organics in the muck layer and water and keep your pond healthy and clean.
Water Clarity Enhancement
Uncontrolled growth of algae in ponds and aquaria often results when mineral nutrients get out of normal balance. This may result from high nitrogen due to fish and food waste in aquaria or fertiliser runoff into the neighbourhood pond.
When environmental factors change to favour the excessive growth of algae, the results can be unsightly and odorous blooms that require some effort to reverse. Now, beneficial microbe inoculation with ENVIRONOC 301 can potentially undo some of the conditions that lead to excessive algae growth and increase water clarity. This is true in aquaria as well as in aesthetic and working ponds.
Grease / Odour Control
Grease & Odour Control
Whether fast food or sit down meals, food preparation puts many food materials into the drain system from a variety of sources. This may lead to line blockage, odor, excessive grease trap buildup and possibly fines.
Can external inoculation help?
ENVIRONOC 301 microbes produce enzymes which digest fats, starch and protein under a variety of temperature conditions. This means less line clogging,less grease trap pumping and lower BOD and TSS values in the effluent leaving the grease trap.
