Syntroph Oxidation Bacteria - A new approach to bacterial bioaugmentation and solution for biomass conversion to energy.

Syntroph Oxidation Bacteria is the technology at the heart of the biological additives for wastewater treatment, sludge digestion and biogas production.

In creating the right environment, multiple strains called syntrophs put themselves together in a natural pulsion to form granules shaped communities. This consortium of diversified bacterial strains evolve in a way to protect the whole community against changes in their environment. Such changes may include toxic, physical and chemical shocks. They do so in a dynamic equilibrium of population, shapes, structure and species auto regulation. Each granule in itself represents a real miniature wastewater treatment plant. They turn out to be more efficient in degrading different kind of pollutants in the wastewater treatment and the biogaz production industries.
