What are “carbon sources?”
Carbon sources are organic compounds added to wastewater to promote bacterial growth and reproduction essential to effective biological wastewater treatment. MicroC® Premium Carbon Sources help establish or sustain this essential anaerobic biomass during periods of low biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) of influent wastewater, and reduce harmful nutrients and contaminants including nitrogen, phosphorus, perchlorate, and selenium.
Are any of the MicroC® products NSF certified?
Yes, our MicroC® 4000 is NSF approved for drinking water applications. More information is available at our Products webpage.
Are there any other compounds (micronutrients, nitrogen, phosphorus, etc.) in MicroC® products?
Some of our products naturally contain trace amounts of N&P. Some products are custom formulated to contain micro and macronutrients. For more specific information, please contact us directly.
Do I have to dilute MicroC® products to feed to my process?
Dilution water and carrier water are not recommended as it compromises the biological stability of the product. If dilutions are necessary, we recommend that fresh solutions are made every 48 hours.
Does EOSi provide technical or application support for their products?
