MNC solid waste bio-stimulant is formulated to support high populations of facultative bacteria. These beneficial microbes occur naturally in most organic waste types, and readily function in both aerobic and anaerobic environments, without producing odorous by-products.
The formulation consists of a natural, non-toxic and biodegradable blend of amino acids, essential oils, vitamins, minerals, purines, pyramidines, and complex organic extracts. Together these promote the rapid growth of facultative bacteria which quickly outcompete odour-producing anaerobic bacteria.
Instant and long-term effect
The application of MNC works immediately on contact to suppress nuisance odours such as sulphides, mercaptans, volatile fatty acids, amines and ammonia, with long lasting results. This is made possible by working on the root cause of odours rather than just the symptoms.
MNC bio-stimulant is highly concentrated and dilution with water is required to aid distribution. It may be applied topically to stockpiles or windrows, or blended with feedstock at the start of the stockpiling process. Corgin can advise dosage levels based on either the volume or the surface area of the waste to be treated.
MNC's performance is confirmed by substantive product tests. One such independent test on compost, which was formulated to contain a carbon:nitrogen ratio of 30:1 (conducive to the production of ammonia under anaerobic conditions), demonstrated many beneficial results, including:
- 16% reduction of time required for waste to become stable (ie reach endogenous stage)
- 40% reduction of ammonia levels
- Microbial populations in waste multiplied by a factor of 10
Safe to use
MNC is non-hazardous and non-toxic, and as a natural and biodegradable product, is essentially harmless to humans and the environment. It is PAS100 accredited, making it safe for use in PAS100 composting operations.
