AZAcomp • - Registered in 1954 in California, the compound was first • used shortly after WWII in pit latrines. • The mixture of the various components in the compound • was perfected over a span of 20 years through research • using on-site lagoon trials, since laboratory trials do not • accurately enough mimic ‘real-life’ situations in all settings. • AZAcomp has successfully treated municipal and • agricultural lagoon systems for over 30 years in Canada.
AZAcomp -It is a very potent compound used in waste remediation which is non-toxic, non-chemical and non-caustic. - It contains a combination of aerobic, anaerobic and facultative anaerobic microbes, enzymes, and other complementary active ingredients. - It will increase the capacity of an existing system eliminating the need for costly facility expansion, or manual removal.
AZAcomp • -It eliminates the necessity of expensive mechanical • equipment. Simple to use, it requires very little expertise • for applications and reduces management requirements. • It specifically targets the biodegradable organic • components of effluent. It will not decompose components • such as plastics, metals, or clothing, nor will it harm pipes, • fixtures, or surfaces in any setting.
AZAcomp • - Using chemicals in waste remediation often arises after • blockages occur. Often the chemicals become diluted • and ineffective where they are needed the most. The use • of AZAcomp will avoid effluent blockages throughout the • entire septic system. • Due to its anaerobic action, the compound will incubate in • undergroundpipes/lines to reduce sludge build-up within • the entire septic system.

AZAcomp • All microbes and enzymes are USDA approved, and • are tested Salmonella and E.coli free. • The microbial cultures contained in the compounds are • non-pathogenic. • - These microbes and enzymes are ideally suited to • thrive on sewage and wastewater of an organic nature. • Once their nutrient source (sewage) is depleted, the • microbes and enzymes die off.

AZAcomp • Using AZAcomp, the decomposition rate is enormously greater then the rate at which the microbes normally found in the wastewater can decompose the effluent. • Enzymes, while not actually living entities, are essential bio-chemical catalysts required for all metabolic processes in nature. - Enzymes are highly specialized and have the ability to break compounds down into their components parts.
AZAcomp • Substantially reduces the populations of harmful • bacteria found in wastewater systems as the microbes • present in AZAcomp are exponentially more active than • microbes normally present in effluent lagoons. • The treated wastewater, can be spread onto agricultural • land reducing soil contamination issues. Long time • users have found that their soil quality has been greatly • enhanced.
AZAcomp • Microbes are naturally occurring recycling intermediaries. Together with their enzymes, they decompose organic matter within a liquid environment into their base components with these components then bio-available for other uses. - Microbes and enzymes are completely biodegradable and both are restricted by the availability of a favorable environment, e.g. temperature, pH, nutrient source, antibacterial agents in the aqueous solution.
AZAcomp Using AZAcomp, organic waste is converted into four main components: - Water - Nitrogen - Bio-gas, predominantly clean methane gas - Micro-nutrients
The Garden Plain Colony’s bubbling primary lagoon. A 550 sow hog operation in southern SK, Canada. Users of AZAcomp. for 10 years.
AZAcomp Beneficial by-products and complimentary action obtainable through AZAcomp’s use: • -Clean methane for use in heating and electricity • is created by the reduction/elimination of hydrogen • sulphide gas. • A high quality micro-nutrient fertilizer (which is easily • absorbed by plants) is left over from the decomposed • sludge.
AZAcomp - Greatly reduces odours associated with wastewater. - Creates recycled non-potable water for use in irrigation etc. - Water can be released into waterways, or lakes with no contamination issues once fully treated as per our recommendations.

AZAcomp Used for wastewater treatment & septic systems in: - Municipal (both lagoons and digesters) - Agricultural i.e. cattle, hog, poultry - Food processing - Commercial i.e. restaurants, abattoirs, hotels, camps - Institutions i.e. hospitals, schools, etc. - Residential
AZAcomp This is the testimonial from a large livestock producer in Southern Saskatchewan, dated November 4, 2008. “Before we used ‘AZAcomp’ we had to use four agitators to mix the solids up enough to be able to pump them out of the lagoon. After one year of using ‘AZAcomp’ we only had to use one agitator to do the same job. We have used this product for about 13 years and have never had to clean out or agitate our primary lagoon. We use all the liquid for fertilizer and have never had a soil problem. In fact, on the land where we used the ‘AZAcomp’ treated manure, our yields were approximately eighteen bushels more than fields treated with commercial fertilizer. Four years after use we could still see better yields.”
The OK Colony’s lagoon had 7-8 feet of solid sludge build up in April 2008. This picture, taken in May 2009, shows the results after using AZAcomp. for one year. Magrath AB, Canada.
AZAcomp • Lab results from the Town of Outlook, SK. Canada • Analysis report from a lagoon discharge sample • taken in April of 2007, and a final effluent sample • taken in September of 2007. • BOD level decreased from 16.6 to <2 mg/L • MPN total coliform decreased from 2014 to 323 • orgs/100ml • MPN E.coli decreased from 644 to <10 orgs/100ml
AZAcomp • Many factors influence dosage rates such as the effluent • retention time in lagoons, the severity of the sludge • build-up, chemical loads in the wastewater, the • effluent/water ratio, and ambient temperatures. • Chronic effluent problems require dosing at much higher • rates initially than maintenance programs, until acceptable • water quality is achieved. • - Applications must be made on a regular and consistent • basis.
AZAcomp • -Water management, including wastewater treatment, • are rapidly becoming critical issues world-wide. • Using AZAcomp provides a simple, all-natural, • and cost effective way to treat wastewater, at a time • when governments and industries alike are looking • for ways to reduce expenses, and lessen man’s • footprint on the environment.
