OCION BD41 is proven commercially for controlling bacteria in sewage and wastewater, landfills, manure, feed and food processing waste. BD41 targets and kills bacteria such as Escherichia coli (E. coli), fecal coliform, salmonella, listeria as well as a wide range of the anaerobic microbial population. The addition of BD41 in wastewater targets immediately the anaerobic bacteria when applied at the proper dosage, increasing efficacy of wastewater treatment and allowing the good aerobic bacteria to flourish.
By controlling the anaerobic bacteria, BD41 eliminates the noxious odors associated with odor-causing bacteria. In this species targeted process, a healthy balance between aerobic and anaerobic biomass degradation is entrenched. That leads to an odor free and process enhanced wastewater treatment.
How It Works
OCION BD41 is a mineral-based bacterial regulator that targets and kills anaerobic bacteria while allowing the growth of beneficial aerobic bacteria and promoting biomass digestion. At relatively low concentration (ppm), copper ions uniquely formulated in OCION BD41 penetrate the target organisms (denitrifying bacteria, sulfur reducing bacteria, methanogens, and sulfur-oxidizing bacteria) at the cellular level and kill the odor-causing bacteria that produce noxious/toxic gases like ammonia (NH3), hydrogen sulphide (H2S), methane (CH4), and sulphur dioxide (SO2). By minutely targeting all these anaerobic bacteria (including the universal water born bacteria) at the cellular level, it creates an inhibitory effect on that bacterial population. This creates an immediate balance between aerobic and anaerobic bacterial population and allowing the standard wastewater, sludge, and biomass treatment processes becoming a far more efficient and odor-free process.
OCION BD41 is uniquely manufactured to be an environmentally friendly product as part of OCION’s commitment to achieve a sustainable future environment. Using OCION’s AIM technology and combining naturally occurring minerals, OCION produces an environmentally friendly highly effective OCION BD41, a bactericide and disinfectant. OCION BD41 offers the following advantage to the environment its applied to:
Reduces pathogens in manure and organic waste
Greatly reduce the foaming action of the effluent
Controls odor and noxious gases
Prevents and controls algae, fungi, fly and larvae infestation
Protects and improves livestock health and growth rates
Better quality and improved manure handling
Increase solubility and reduce build-up of solids
Safe for workers and animals
What Users Are Saying
OCION BD41 in our aerated waste lagoons has minimized several serious problems for us. Before using OCION BD41, approximately 20% of the lagoon’s volume would settle as organic waste. Now, we find that no settling of the waste takes place. Odorous gases have been reduced very significantly especially during the hot weather. As an added bonus OCION BD41 has greatly reduced the foaming action of the effluent on top of the waste lagoons. The overall results are a significant improvement in the control of our waste treatment.
Thank you for your assistance in controlling manure odors from our broiler breeder farm. After 3 – 4 days we already knew OCION BD41 was working because the odor was completely gone.
We have been using OCION BD41 since November 2000 on our hog manure both in the pits inside the barns as well as on the outside lagoon and we couldn’t be happier with the results. The major benefits are the reduction of the smell and the increase solubility of the manure that is gradually reducing the past solids build-up in the lagoon. When we spray the manure, there is no smell and the manure is more homogenous. Before we had mostly water coming out of the sprayers and solids only towards the end. Now the liquid is dark from start to finish of the spraying. I have noticed that the corn that grows on OCION BD41 treated manure appears to grow faster and larger. I am very pleased with the results we are getting from OCION BD41application and look forward to your next developments on manure treatment. Keep up the good work.
My wife, son and I weaned and processed pigs the first of March and noticed when we finished that we didn’t cough as much after we had been in there most of the day. I pumped out again the 19th of March. This pit pumped out the cleanest it had been for a long time. Everything flows well to the pump outs. I also noticed when I spread it on the top of the ground this time that the smell was not as strong as it has been in the past.
I should continue using OCION BD41 as this makes a better environment for both of us and the pigs. It will also help make better relationships with the neighbors on the odor
