KKR and XPV Water Partners Form New Platform to Promote Water Quality



MicroC® 1000 Series

The MicroC® 1000 series is a proprietary carbohydrate-based and non-hazardous product. MicroC® 1000 series products are best suited for small municipal, package/decentralized and commercial/residential wastewater treatment facilities that require a safe, clean and consistent carbon source for nitrate removal and/or BOD supplementation. 


  • Eliminates flammability and toxicity concerns of traditional chemicals such as methanol
  • Provides capital cost savings vs. installation of flammable liquid storage and feed system
  • Non-hazardous product enables rapid and flexible deployment of carbon augmentation solutions 

Performance Advantages

  • Rapid start-up/acclimation
  • Superior cold weather performance

Environmentally Sustainable

  • Derived from abundant, renewable resources produced in the United States vs. largely imported fossil-fuel derived carbon sources (methanol)
  • USDA BioPreferred designation

Consistent and Superior Quality

  • Rigorous end to end quality control program
  • Consistent Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) values
  • No product degradation during long-term storage
Validated Performance

MicroC 1000

Introduced in 2005, MicroC 1000 is a non-hazardous carbohydrate based carbon source best suited for small municipal and decentralized facilities that are seeking a safe, consistent and environmentally friendly carbon source for denitrification and BOD addition.

MicroC 1100

EOSi's original MicroC product introduced in 2003, MicroC 1100 is a carbohydrate and methanol mixture that provides the benefit of lower hazard ratings, low freezing point and enhanced denitrification kinetics. This product is used primarily by decentralized facilities in colder climates that want to avoid the hazards of methanol.
