Carbon supplements for biomass health in wastewater systems, designed for overall system health, are more reliable, cost-effective and risky.


It beats dog food. SmartBOD is a carbon supplement that contains bioavailable sources of amino acids, complex proteins, carbohydrates, and micronutrients designed to feed and support the bacteria in your biological wastewater processes.

Healthy bacteria form and build floc and remove nutrients. Chronic low food issues for bacteria lead to underperforming wastewater plants, because the bacteria are missing key building blocks of life.

This is also an issue in plant start-ups. Smart BOD can properly seed and boost biomass to get everything running smoothly.

SmartBOD is cost effective when it follows the dosing plan, which ensures the application of a system sensitive amount

It will even be helpful in lowering ammonia and nitrate. If your plant has enhanced biological phosphorus removal SmartBOD will be effective for your biomass.

Smart BOD supports biomass health in wastewater systems


Biomass health in wastewater systems suffers when the system is in a state of low food. The low food problem literally means your beneficial bacteria do not have enough bioavailable nutrients to be active and effective. Since the health of your biomass is a core part of smooth operations for your wastewater system, there can be a broad range of symptoms when a system has low food. Visual indicators range from the general appearance of your floc to hard measurements like ammonia and nitrate levels.

Since biomass is fundamental in wastewater management, it makes sense to design a food source for your biomass that doesn’t create new or different problems in other parts of your operations. Substituting animal feed for well-researched and designed bacteria seems cost-effective until the higher levels of fats and phosphorus found in these products build-up and have negative system-wide impacts.

Smart BOD is designed to create better effluent, because it is better for your bacteria and biomass. Properly fed bacteria produce cleaner effluent with less settling, because they consume more of the food they encounter.

Plus Smart BOD is designed so you can use less product to get better results. It’s not just cost-effective because it helps prevent other problems, it’s cost-effective because the amount an operator requires is less than other types of protein/fat/carbohydrate supplements for biomass.

And, it isn’t just a question of fats and proteins used to support your biomass. Smart BOD provides a proper amount of carbon *sugars* that enable your biomass to rapidly grow, with proper nutrition. Just like humans, bacteria don’t thrive for long on a sugar-only diet.
