Bio Solutions — Company Introduction Bio Solutions is dedicated to providing sales and services of biological solutions to meet the demands of commercial, residential, and municipal customers seeking efficient, environmentally friendly, and cost saving methods for eliminating waste while maintaining and protecting their assets. Bio Solutions’ main objective is to help the municipal wastewater collection system run smoothly, without backups, Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSO’s), or Hydrogen Sulfide (H 2 S) issues in lifting stations. Bioremediation targets where the majority of fats, oils, and grease (FOG) waste originate – Food Service Facilities. Bio Solutions products for Lift Stations/Manholes will reduce FOG’s, SSO’s, odors, and the reduction of H 2 S. Bio Solutions’ products are also made to reduce sludge, organic loading, and foaming in Wastewater Treatment Plants. You may ask, “What is the importance of a Municipal Grease Control Program?” Most importantly, it is an Environmental and Public Health issue. Without a grease control program, any given municipality could face financial issues dealing with property damage, clean-up costs, and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fines.

Partnering with Your Municipality Schools/ Universities Food Service Facilities Hospitals/ Nursing Homes Municipal Influence Reducing grease and other organic waste accumulating in the wastewater collection system has several benefits, including the reduction of SSO’s and drain back ups, saving costs in equipment maintenance, man-hours, plumbing and pumping, improving the quality of water, and helping protect the environment which saves every municipality costs downstream. Bio-Solutions Microbial Systems Significantly Reduce: 1.Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG’s) 2.Total Suspended Solids (TSS) 3.Sludge/Sediment 4.Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) 5.Ammonia Odors 6.Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) levels
1. Mode of Action in Reducing FOGs Fats, oils, and grease are organic compounds that are called triglycerides. They are insoluble in water. BSLM microbial systems are specifically designed to digest these types of molecules. The products also offer systems to provide for a more suitable environment for microbial activity as well as making the FOG more soluble in water. FOGs→Fatty acids and glycerol→carbon, hydrogen, etc. 2. Mode of Action in Reducing TSS Total suspended solids are un-dissolved waste particles in water. TSS of wastewater in grease traps and lift stations typically consist of proteins and starches. BSLM microbial systems include various microorganisms that will digest these solids. Protein (polypeptides)→Peptides (chains of amino acids)→amino acids→ carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, etc. Starch (polysaccharides) →simple sugars (monosaccharides)→ carbon, hydrogen, etc. 3. Mode of Action in Reducing BOD Biochemical Oxygen Demand is a condition that occurs when there is undigested organic matter in water. Large organic molecules, such as fats, oils, grease, and un-dissolved solids attribute to BOD, causing a depletion of oxygen. BSLM's microbial systems accelerate the process of the break-down of organic matter, while also providing conditions to overcome the oxygen demand.
4. Mode of Action in Reducing Sludge and Sediment The characteristics and degradation of sludge and sediment vary depending on the system and type of organic waste. BSLM microbial systems contain a range of microorganisms that not only degrade several types of substrates, but also have a range of environmental conditions to facilitate activity. The system provides tolerance to varying conditions of pH, temperature, and oxygen levels. So whether the solids are sediment in the bottom of a grease trap (mostly starch and protein from food) to wastewater sludge (mostly undigested organic matter and proteins), BSLM microbial systems will be able to target the contaminant. Under Anaerobic Conditions large organic molecules →smaller organic molecules→H2O, CO2, NH3, etc. Under Aerobic Conditions Protein (polypeptides) →peptides (chains of amino acids)→amino acids →carbon, hydrogen, etc. 5. Mode of Action in Reducing Hydrogen Sulfide Hydrogen sulfide gas is produced in excess where there are high concentrations of organic waste and sulfated in sewage. The organic waste contributes to a low oxygen condition (anaerobic), which BSLM systems can help control. Under anaerobic conditions, sulfur reducing bacterial (SRB) convert sulfates into sulfides, including H2S. Organic Matter + Low D.O. + SO4 (sulfates)→HS + H2S + H2O A. BSLM microbial systems help reduce the organic waste accumulating in sewer systems and help control more stable pH and D.O. (dissolved oxygen). B. BLSM provides systems specifically targeted for reducing H2S by focusing more control on environmental conditions such as pH and D.O. C. Microorganisms introduced by BSLM systems will help compete and replace SRB.

“The Public Service District has been using Bio-Plumber 310 in lift stations for several years. This product has proven to be very beneficial in eliminating the grease problem experienced in the past. The District had tried several different types of products without success before discovering this simple solution. I also encourage restaurants to use the product in their grease traps and have seen a beneficial effect on the downstream sewer lines.” ~ Barry B. Milam, General Manager Crab Orchard, Mac Arthur “As part of a pilot project we now require all restaurants being served by the Boiling Springs lift station to use the services of Bio-Solutions. Our lift station has not developed accumulation of grease as of this date. We recommend Bio-Solutions for your consideration in solving problems with grease on your system.” ~ Bob Fulton, General Superintendent Oxford Water Works, Oxford, AL Full Testimonial Letters available upon request

“We have engaged Bio-Solutions, a bioremediation company, to provide services to our city in treating certain sewage locations. This company is currently the only provider that has been approved by the City, and while we cannot singularly endorse any one provider, they offer to work with you, just as they have the city.” ~ Stanley Bond, Public Works Director City of Fort Payne “When you allow Bio-solutions to provide you with their service and treat your grease traps with their microbial product, you will be participating as cost sharing partners.” ~ Chip Chandler, Chief Operator City of Lincoln Full Testimonial Letters available upon request
Food Service Facilities (Restaurants, Hospitals, Schools, Nursing Homes, etc.) Every Commercial Cooking Establishment kitchen generates grease, which when it accumulates will clog drains, cause sewage system back-ups, create foul odors and serve as a breeding ground for pests such as fruit flies and drain gnats. This situation when left unattended, can completely disrupt the operation altogether.
Best Kitchen Management Practices Drain Line protection includes: Injected microbial treatment Prevents drain gnats/ fruit flies Virtually Eliminates Odor Best Kitchen Management & Safety Practices Includes all of the above benefits with the addition of our Bio-Care Hygienic Floor Soap. The floor soap benefits are as follows: Removes grease proteins, starch, and dirt from tile, marble, wood, and linoleum floors Helps eliminate odors from floors Imparts shiny, clean look Quick drying (2-3 minutes) Helps prevent slip and fall incidents The Grease Trap: Weekly treatment with our microbial products to eliminate and prevent the buildup of fats, oils, and grease (FOG’s) Eliminate odor and the expense of pumping
Seeing Is Believing The pictures below are before and after photos of a grease trap at the Dinner Bell Restaurant in D’Iberville, MS, after being treated for only 2 1/2 weeks with Bio-Solutions integrated microbial systems. Before After Bio-Care Grease Trap
“A year ago we could not drain our pot sinks, or dishwashers without causing a flood. We were facing some expensive plumbing work. You came along with your products and in a few short weeks drainage was no longer a problem. Additionally, all of our grease traps on the campus were full to the point where we needed to pump them out. Your company agreed to take on cleaning our grease traps with your products. I told you, I have been told by many they could get rid of our grease, but none had proven their statement to be true. Within a few weeks, the grease trap only had a slight topping of sludge and no buildup, I was sold! I am so pleased with the Bio-Plumber products, I would recommend them to anyone in the food industry. This stuff works and it is environmentally safe.” ~ James Outland, Associate Director University of Southern Mississippi “I was truly amazed by this product and would recommend it to anyone who operates a food service establishment. Using Bio-Plumber has saved our franchise the high costs of plumbing service, and there is no more vacuuming the grease trap, snaking lines, or the use of toxic chemicals around food products. I stand behind your products 100 percent.” ~ Floyd Feske, District Manager Taco Bell Full Testimonial Letters available upon request
Bio-Care Septic Works in your home septic tank as in municipal sewer lift stations. This is important because your septic tank is receiving the same type of waste (on a smaller scale) as a city lift station. With the break down and digestion of organic wastes (grease, food waste, fecal, etc.) into simpler elements by our microbes, the wastes will never reform as solids and will flow out as effluents. Reduce your risk of back-ups and cost of pumping your septic tanks by using this product once per month. This is also great for holding tanks (motor homes, campers, boats, etc.) This view is of the outlet end of the septic tank of a two septic tank system that was installed 2 years ago. It has never been pumped. The customer has 2 people using the system and they have been on our products since installation. 1A — Is the side wall of the 1,000 gallon Xactics Poly Septic Tank 1B — is the end wall of the 1,000 gallon Xactics Poly Septic Tank 1C — Is the bottom of the 1,000 gallon Xactics Poly Septic Tank #2 — Is the outlet baffle / also is set up for a filter #3 — Is the next flow of septic water going to the Leaching Field and the water level of the septic juice American Septic Service Wallkill, New York
“Two years ago, the Chamber established an annual award — Green Business of the Year… The first winner of the award was American Septic Service, in business for 43 years as Sloboda Brothers, Inc. They were recognized ‘as the only company that offers non-mechanical aerobic wastewater treatment, which experts believe will be the preferred method of treating septic wastewater in the future.’” —The Business Viewpoint, August 2009 Full Testimonial Letters available upon request
Bio Solutions Cleaning Products Bio-Care Odor Control Developed for drain lines, dumpster areas, septic drain fields, etc. “In December of 2001 I was the manager of Quincy's in Oxford, AL. Bio-Solutions of East Alabama was requesting a variance to Oxford's Sewer Code. John Shaddix treated our drains and grease traps for the next three months. Our drain lines stopped smelling and stopping up and our grease trap did not have to be pumped anymore. Due to this success the city granted a variance and Bio-Solutions began treatment on their system. I am now the dietician at NHC Place in Anniston. I was pleased to discover that Bio- Solutions is treating our drains and grease trap here. An odor problem in the drains has been solved and our grease trap has not needed pumping in over a year. This method works.” ~ Ron McClellan, Dietician NHC Place, Anniston, AL Bio-Care Fruit Fly Control For commercial cooking establishments and other facilities with fruit fly or drain gnat problems. “Since the introduction of the Bio-Solutions treatment method over a year ago persistent problems such as clogged drains, drain gnats infestations, and fruit flies have ceased. Additionally, our grease traps have not had to be pumped since treatment began and back flow odors are non-existent.” ~ Chad George, Manager IHOP, Oxford, AL

Each electronic unit has a protective cover. The sign is yellow with black print and red flashing emblem. Slip-and-fall incidents are one of the most common liabilities for businesses.
Bioremediation VS. Pumping PumpingBioremediation Pumping is the transportation of grease and other buildup from one location (the grease traps) to another. This does not solve grease problems, it merely transports the grease from one point to another. The problem remains and the waste is then dealt with on a much larger scale- the city/municipality. After the waste becomes a city problem, it is then transferred to the taxpayer. Bioremediation eliminates the waste, which in turn reduces odor and pests such as drain gnats and fruit flies. Bioremediation keeps the cost of maintaining waste to a minimum by solving problems instead of transporting them. By reducing the waste entering the sewage conduit, the cost to the city is reduced and the savings are generally passed on to the taxpayer.
