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

SuperInter Columbia Experiences Positive Results of UltraZyme® Grease Application

SuperInter Columbia - Cypher Environmental

UltraZyme® Recommended by SuperInter, Columbian Super Market   Our UltraZyme® Powder product was used in the grease traps at a SuperInter Super Market in Guadelpoupe, Colombia. The product was applied to reduce odour and overall grease volume. Grease traps normally pose a threat to water treatment plants because of the large amount of grease that accumulates. This grease can cause major blockages and reduced capacities in the piping systems leading into waste water treatment plants. On occasion, grease traps need to get pumped out because of build up. This is costly to the operator and creates solid waste that must be disposed of in the landfill. With the implementation of UltraZyme® into grease traps, customers can be assured that their grease traps will be functioning well. With reduced fats, oils, grease and significantly less odour, the typical reductions in BOD and COD will be achieved as well. Superinter has 26 locations … 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

Columbia School Rebuild - Cypher Environmental

Cypher Helps in Colombia School Rebuilding Project   In the summer of 2011, Aliados Ambientales SAS and Cypher Environmental participated in rebuilding a local community school in Columbia. The project was initiated to bring radical change in the poor communities of the city and to improve living conditions. The building was located in one of the most dangerous neighbourhoods in the city. There was an immediate need to bring about change in the area to help children break the cycle of violence and conflict. One of the key requirements of the project was to create a school that was environmentally friendly and sustainable. It also required a supply of clean water and onsite wastewater treatment. Cypher’s EarthZyme® and UltraZyme® products were donated graciously by Aliados Ambientales and played a key role in the project’s success.

Cypher Environmental - Haul Road

Industrial products provide dust suppression, water management alternatives. Anyone who has driven on a rural road or worked in remote areas where oil, mining, forestry or other development is occurring knows dealing with dust and unstable soils can be annoying; it can also be a never-ending and costly task. Winnipeg-based Cypher Environmental Ltd., run by 34-year-old entrepreneur Todd Burns, has perfected an eco-friendly way to virtually eliminate that dust and to stabilize soils in areas like mine sites, where heavy truck traffic is a constant and expensive irritant. And it has developed a technology that uses bacteria and enzymes for wastewater remediation, potentially a multimillion-dollar market. Cypher’s business motto – “Driven by innovation – partners in performance” – captures the fast-growing company’s raison d’être. As is the case with most successful companies, it took leadership to bring that motto and vision to reality. Burns, who has travelled to more than … Read More

Cypher’s President, Todd Burns, was once again asked to take part in the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce’s BOLD Radio show, on Saturday, March 19th. Todd was joined by Executive Vice President of the Winnipeg Chamber, Loren Remillard, to discuss the new BOLD strategy that the Chamber has rolled out for the Province of Manitoba, and in particular, to discuss procurement within the province. Cypher was chosen to take part, specifically due to their expertise in working with procurement departments and professionals globally, and how some of that experience can be imparted to have a positive impact on how procurement is done locally, here in Manitoba. Through four years of engagement with community thought leaders and research into best practices (here and abroad), Manitoba BOLD sets out an ambitious vision of Manitoba’s future and the steps the province must take to get there. Manitoba BOLD is more than a document on … Read More
