Research on UltraZyme Hydrocarbon Published in the Journal of Environmental Engineering

Cypher EnvironmentalNews

  A recent study conducted by the University of Alberta, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, was published in the Journal of Environmental Engineering, which showcased the use of Cypher’s UltraZyme Hydrocarbon product to remediate oil sands tailings.  Oil sands consist of a mixture of sand, water, clay and bitumen, and in Canada the deposits that are the largest and most widely developed are known as the Athabasca Oil Sands.  Although the most technologically advanced processes in the world are used to extract these Oil Sands deposits, there remains an accumulation of 1,075 million m^3 of tailings – enough to fill 430,000 Olympic sized swimming pools!  The research conducted by the U of A using UltraZyme has shown promising advances in the steps being taken to improve the processes involved in the remediation and recycling of these tailings. The tailings being generated by the Athabasca Oil Sands can be generally … Read More

Eco-Infrastructure Solutions Applies UltraZyme® to Reclaimed Landfill for Odour Control

Cypher EnvironmentalNews, UltraZyme Projects

Reclaimed Landfill

UltraZyme® reduces the general population of Sulphate-Reducing Bacteria (SRBs) in anaerobic systems and therefore, over time, alleviates and reduces odour issues. Cypher Environmental had developed this particular treatment plan with Eco-Infrastructure Solutions, who were trying to apply the product to open pit landfills in order to reduce any unwanted odours as well as reduce methane output as a result of decomposition. The unique cultures within UZP are selected for optimum enzyme and bacteria production, assuring efficient breakdown of proteins, carbohydrates and fats when UZP is applied to any treatment area. A proprietary micronutrient carrier provides accelerated germination and growth, while bacterial enzyme production reduces odour, BOD, COD, suspended solids, turbidity, and ammonia concentrations. UZP works well in aerobic, anaerobic and facultative environments. Cypher’s unique, non-engineered cultures contained in UZP rapidly digest odour-causing organic wastes. Odours aren’t covered up – they are eliminated at the source. To learn more about projects … Read More

Reduces Environmental Footprint Another technical article written by the largest peer reviewed environmental publication in the Americas about Cypher International Ltd. and the highly proven UltraZyme® wastewater remediation solution. The effluent generated by livestock at agricultural operations all over North and South America has a significant environmental footprint that flows far downstream from its source. One Hog farm in particular has been using a breakthrough technology referred to as UltraZyme® to enhance the biological activity within its waste lagoons in order to discharge a much less toxic waste stream into the environment. UltraZyme® has been in use for over a year now for wastewater remediation at a hog farm owned by Blue Ribbon, near Panama City, Panama, and its results have been closely monitored through lab tests, visual verification and testimonials, proving its great success. Most notably present in these effluents, or agricultural runoffs, are manure and urine as well … Read More

UltraZyme Effective Against Oil and Grease Contamination

CypherUltraZyme

UltraZyme has been proven to be an effective solution for the treatment of oil and grease contamination.  UltraZyme was the product of choice for Alam Flora Sdn Bhd, one of Malaysia’s largest solid waste management companies.  For many years, the company’s grease traps and sump pits experienced high levels of oil and grease contamination.  The constant level of oil and grease also contaminated the wastewater stream and became a source of bad odour. UltraZyme was able to reduce the oil and grease content of the water within one month.  Visible change could be seen in the collection pits where the walls and parts were previously coated in a thick sludge.  Not only was UltraZyme an effective solution, it was also an environmentally friendly choice.  See the results of the leachate collection pits 2 weeks after UltraZyme application.
