Need to Boost Nitrification? Add a Dose of A55L

October 5, 2021

Ammonia is a major pollutant that needs to be removed from wastewater before it can be released to the environment. It is also a problem in aquariums and ponds where excess levels can have negative effects on fish. While Bionetix® International recommends BCP655as the most efficient way to reduce nitrogen and ammonia levels and simultaneously lower BOD/COD (especially when facing lower temperatures or oxygen levels), you can also add A55Lwhen you need to increase nitrogen removal, as when shock loading occurs.

A55Luses nitrifying bacteria to support the natural nitrification process. The Nitrosomonas strain in A55Loxidizes ammonia to nitrite using available dissolved oxygen in the water. Nitrobacter bacteria then take up the next step of the process by oxidizing the nitrite into nitrate. A55Lcan be used to restore nitrification quickly after upsets and support natural nitrification in colder months (optimum temperature is 59-86 °F [15-30 °C]).
The end result is cleaner wastewater without the extra surcharge for nitrogen-based pollutants!
