Earlier in this article series, we touched on how bioaugmentation treatments for wastewater have been around for 50+ years to help resolve toxic upsets. We also explored how Bacillus, a certain genus of bacteria that can be used in microbial treatments, are resilient to oxidizers.
Today, we’ll examine how Bacillus are resistant to another powerful but non-oxidizing anti-microbial: Quats.
What are Quats?
Quaternary ammonium compounds
When distributors participate in our Biotifx® program, they become armed with the knowledge and confidence they need to support their customers with superior microbial wastewater treatments – even during the winter months.

MDG manufactures pre-measured and easy-to-use septic tank pouches that work hard well after application to continue
Many of us know what happens when you mistakenly under-preserve a biological product: the bottles start to bulge or suck-in (the latter can also be caused by fragrance issues), fungal growth starts to appear or it starts to have an unpleasant odor.
