Treatment of Industrial Wastewater

UltraZyme® is a specialized blend of naturally occurring bacterial cultures, enzymes and micronutrients that are effective as seed or as maintenance cultures for the biodegradation of a wide range of municipal and industrial organic wastes.

How It Works

When wastewater treatment facilities are struggling to meet discharge limits and potentially at risk of receiving fines, UltraZyme® can be employed as part of the treatment program to optimize biodegradation performance and reduce excessive organic loading.
UltraZyme® may be utilized to mitigate common wastewater treatment problems such as:

  • Fats, oils, and grease (FOG) buildup
  • Surface scum accumulation
  • Scum solidification
  • Odours
  • Line blockages
  • Non-settling solids
  • Excessive Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) effluent
  • Excessive suspended solids
  • Foaming and bulking in aeration tanks


UltraZyme® is environmentally friendly; formulated with the highest count of specialized beneficial microbial cultures to significantly boost biological activities. The blend of naturally-occurring microbial cultures and enzymes has been selected for the ability to effectively digest/degrade high concentrations of organic matter within the water column; reducing hostile factors that are detrimental to the health and life cycle of both fin and shell fish.

UltraZyme® can be used for different types of wastewater treatment systems including: Activated sludge systems, Sequencing Batch Reactors (SBRs), Rotating Biological Contactors (RBCs), trickling filters, lagoons and septic systems. UltraZyme® can also be applied at various stages of the treatment process (e.g. lift stage).

How to Use

Available in a highly concentrated powder form. To use, mix the prescribed amount of UltraZyme® with warm water or wastewater directly from the system to be treated and apply directly into the system. Consultation will be had with a local Cypher representative to determine the application rate to be used. Please contact us for suggestions on which UltraZyme® product is best suited for your needs, as well as a consultation on the best application rate to use.
