Benefits of Bacterial Cultures in Waste Disposal

Bacteria are small but powerful organisms that we have lived with for centuries. They have been used to make bread rise and make alcoholic beverages in days of old. Today however, bacteria is not only used to make your pastries and beer but also help the environment clean up our waste products.

If you’re curious about how you’re helping yourself by using bacterial cultures then read on.

Why Use Bacterial Cultures?

The environment can easily handle small amounts of waste products. However, dumping billions of gallons/tons of waste without treating it will overwhelm our environment and put the ecosystem in jeopardy. This is where bacterial cultures come in. It ensures that there is less waste floating around, fewer diseases, less odor, and make sure that the environment we live in can cope with the waste we dump every day. 

Less Waste

Bacterial cultures are used to help eliminate solid waste from wastewater. This process is called Biodegradation.The use of bacterial cultures ensures that waste products are removed quickly and efficiently when compared to just dumping it into the environment and hoping that nature will take care of it. Nature is too slow to handle all the waste we output every single day so using it on our waste ensures that we give nature a helping hand in handling our waste.  

Odor Removal

You would think that bacteria would create a terrible odor while eating away at the waste however, there are specific bacterial cultures that can eliminate up to 75% of the odor from waste. This bacteria is lactobacillus which is commonly found in yoghurt and cheeses. It works by producing lactic acid which prevents the growth of other more odorous bacteria.  

These bacterial cultures will definitely be able to handle the odor that will be billowing out of your outhouse after burrito night.  

Disease Prevention

Untreated sewage is also a carrier of disease. Without treatment, diseases such as leptospirosis, diarrhea and hepatitis could contaminate sources of drinking water. Your drinking water. It would also infect fish that you would commonly find on your dinner plate. This can cause stomach problems and illness when eaten. 

Better thank bacteria for making sure that your next Salmon Mignon and cold glass of water is as pristine as a crystal clear river and tastes just as good as it looks. 

Environmental Preservation

Solid waste absorbs oxygen from the water around it which means there is less oxygen that can be used by fish and other forms of aquatic life. If there isn’t enough oxygen in the water, aquatic life will find it difficult to thrive, let alone survive. Rivers formerly teeming with life will slowly be left barren and dirty due to all the waste floating around.

Bacterial cultures are the heart and soul of waste disposal and we would literally be in deep sh*t if we weren’t using them.
