The Bio Reactor is a "JoJo" tank, or series of tanks, which is/are installed on the site nearest where the waste water enters the treatment plant. The installation is non-invasive and there is no re-engineering or any form of construction required to be undertaken by the client. Installation is usually completed in a few hours.

The installation does not interfere with the plant or it's operation and there is no down-time required. The day-to-day running of the Bio-Activator process is very simple and it only requires 2 minutes per day by one operator to add the daily Bio-Activator dosage to the tank. No special skills are required and this task can be accomplished after only a few minutes instruction. After the first dosing of the bio tank with biomass to initiate the process, the tank must be dosed daily (client's responsibility) with a specified quantity of Bio-Activator feed material. This process is simple and the dosing is done via the lid on the top of the tank. It does not require any special skills or any form of protective clothing or equipment as Bio-Activator is very safe (see the Material Safety Data Sheet).

The Bio Reactor requires a 24/7 (varies per application) dedicated water supply in order to inoculate the waste water at the influent point. The feeder system is both a water fed and manually fed process. The feed material is manually fed into the tank in dehydrated form where the water hydrates the feed material. This feed material then feeds the biomass within the tank. 

The biomass molecules are inoculated through a specially designed outlet into the waste water pond/plant. Once in the waste water treatment plant, the Bio-Activator improves the bacterial metabolism of organic material. This in turn reduces sludge levels and eliminates odours. It operates aerobically under anaerobic conditions. It inhibits the production of hydrogen sulphide and methane. It is very effective in organically overloaded plants and improves the plants' ability to handle shock loads.

The Bio-Activator does not interfere with any of the processes anywhere in the waste water treatment plant. In fact it enhances and improves all the organic functions, both anaerobic and aerobic, throughout the system. Because this product is completely organic there is no hazard to any fittings, pumps or any form of corrosion or any other negative effect. It is completely safe for people, animals and crops and it is environmentally friendly.

These photos were taken at the waste water treatment plant of a mission hospital in Khanye in Botswana, showing the simplicity of the system.

The pipe leading to the concrete structure on the right is feeding the activated Bio-Activator into the chute where the effluent from the hospital enters the waste water treatment plant. The pipe on the left is the dedicated water supply which is controlled by a flow meter.

This is what the "treated" water used to look like after having been processed by the waste water treatment plant, but before the Bio-Activator process was introduced. This effluent is supposed to be clear at this stage where it is then subjected to a disinfection process prior to discharge. It is evident that the waste water treatment plant was failing dismally.

Within 12 hours after the bio reactor being initiated the bad smells had completely disappeared. This is a sample of the final effluent which had cleared within a week after the bio reactor was commissioned.

The Parmalat factory in Gaborone, Botswana, experienced issues with their effluent. It is discharged into the municipal sewer but it did not meet the standard. The effluent also had a very bad smell which was also a great concern. On late in the afternoon of 4 December 2015 the Bio-Activator process was commissioned using a 1000 liter tank.

The effluent consists of milk and milk fats and cleaning solutions that are flushed out of the factory. This is the primary sump which first receives the effluent. Before implementing treatment this waste was extremely thick in consistency and it was very difficult to stir with a steel pole.

An inspection the following morning (12 hours later) revealed that the waste had already started softening up and best of all the bad smells were completely gone.

By 14 December, just 10 days later, the incoming effluent was staying very fluid (still smell free). The muck which previously was accumulating on the walls had also disappeared.


In a static laboratory test conducted by Zambia Sugar, they determined the effectiveness of Bio-Activator in reducing the Chemical Oxygen Demand in the effluent from the sugar factory. Under constrained circumstances Bio-Activator managed the phenomenal achievement of reducing the COD by 52% in just 48 hours!















The advantages of the Bio-Activator process in waste water treatment plants:

-          Prevents the generation of odours

-          Stops the production of hydrogen sulphide

-          Greatly increases bacterial metabolic rate

-          Improves the ability to handle shock loads

-          Improves bacterial breakdown of organic material

-          Very effective on organically overloaded treatment plants

-          Increases treatment plant capacity dramatically

-          Prevents ponding and solids build-up in trickling filters

-          Increases the rate of nitrogen cycling

Bio-Activator is suited for treating:

 -         Tannery effluent

 -         Textile effluent

-          Distillery effluent

-          Sorghum brewery effluent

-          Soft drink and bottling plant effluent

-          Beer brewery and bottling plant effluent

-          Municipal Sewage and waste water treatment plants for hotels, resorts and housing complexes

-          Abattoir effluent

-          Dairy effluent

-          It prevents the generation of odours in landfills

 Bio-Activator positively promotes and enhances the capabilities of:

-          Anaerobic Digesters

-          Activated sludge

-          Sludge Lagoons

-          Oxidation Ponds

Bio-Activator will specifically reduce and render the following to standard:

-          Chemical Oxygen Demand                                                        

-          Biological Oxygen Demand                                                 

-          Total Suspended Solids

-          Total Dissolved Solids

-          Nitrates

-          Phosphates
