The Only Corn Syrup Degrader
High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), corn starch, and vegetable starch are among the most difficult complex carbohydrates to degrade in wastewater. These compounds are extremely high in BOD and their complexity resists bacterial breakdown.
Facilities with these constituents in their wastewater try to counteract the high COD by over-aerating. Over-aerating increases bad odors, costs thousands of dollars in electrical bills, and only provides marginal reduction in COD.
Aquafix, Inc. has developed a new biocatalyst to break down these complex, high molecular weight polysaccharides in wastewater processes. Qwik-Zyme CS speeds up the degradation of HFCS and vegetable starches while allowing major savings on aeration and other operational costs.
When used for HFCS: Qwik-Zyme CS allows complete breakdown of HFCS into glucose to be further digested by bacteria. Its high-performing biocatalyst is an essential piece missing from HFCS wastewaters.
When used for corn and vegetable starches: Qwik-Zyme CS is used to break down the complex starches into glucose and other bio-available simple sugars. Alternating between Qwik-Zyme CS and Qwik-Zyme P when breaking down starches allows the bacteria to access even more of the simple sugars and degrade them.
