Enzyme PRO™ - Ezymatic
Degradation of organic compounds in the absence of oxygen is a principle cause of foul odours. Organosulphur compounds which are naturally present in all organic waste materials break down in the absence of oxygen to yield hydrogen sulphide (H2S) gas associated with the smell of rotten eggs.
Incomplete degradation of organic compounds under anaerobic conditions also produces volatile organic compounds (VOC's). These compounds can vary enormously in chemical composition and are characteristic of the waste from which they are derived.
Under anaerobic conditions organosulphur compounds generally degrade to simpler substances containing a sulphur-hydrogen moiety (S-H bond), known as thiols or mercaptans. The mercaptans can further degrade under anaerobic conditions to hydrogen sulphide.
If oxygen is available then aerobic digestion takes place. Under these conditions, the biochemical processes lead to the conversion of organosulphur compounds to water and sulphate (H20 and SO4) which are odourless.
Also, under aerobic conditions, VOC's are not produced because organic compounds are completely degraded to carbon dioxide and water which are odourless.
The odour that is perceived and that enables humans to differentiate between different odours is the result of a complex interaction between the particular spectrum of VOC's and the hydrogen sulphide that a given waste produces.
Hydrogen sulphide is detectable at extremely low concentrations (the recognition threshold is 0.47ppb). The detectable concentration of many malodorous VOC's is similarly very low. Thus, although a particular smell may be subjectively identified as "strong" this does not necessarily indicate a high concentration of odour causing compounds. It is a reflection of the response to the particular spectrum of VOC's that is present.
It is rarely possible to detect hydrogen sulphide alone. The assessment of odour resulting from the interplay of hydrogen sulphide and VOC's is highly subjective. Even a small alteration in the composition of VOC's or the concentration of VOC's relative to hydrogen sulphide can result in substantial changes in the subjective assessment of odour.
Enzyme PRO™ suppresses or controls odour by two different mechanisms. Firstly, it is able to complex with or "capture" volatile organic compounds producing a practically instantaneous reduction in perceived odour. This effect explains why odour may be controlled subjectively even though hydrogen sulphide is still detectable by objective chemical methods of analysis.
Secondly, Enzyme PRO™ affects digestion of organic contaminants in two ways:
- Direct Enzyme PRO™ catalysis of catabolic processes to breakdown complex molecules into progressively smaller less complex molecules.
- The smaller less complex molecules act as food substrate for microbes which can then proliferate and further promote biochemical breakdown of the organic substrate.
For hydrogen sulphide control, it is primarily the first method of action that is at play. Mercaptase enzymes break the hydrogen- sulphur bonds of the mercaptans and thiols that are generated at the surface of the organic waste, thus suppressing the generation of hydrogen sulphide. This is the most effective means of controlling the hydrogen sulphide component of the odour.
Hydrogen sulphide itself is a stable and potentially toxic gas. By eliminating the mercaptans and thiols from which it is produced, and thus preventing its formation,Enzyme PRO™ eliminates the need for the more difficult task of degrading H2S after it has formed.
It is for this reason that a fine aerosol spray onto the surface is the best way to deal with odor. This needs to be repeated as frequently as required to maintain odor control at the surface once the enzyme PRO™has been absorbed from the surface into the organic waste or has biodegraded.
A fine aerosol spray is also the most effective way for Enzyme PRO™ to capture volatile organic compounds. An aerosol spray generates a large surface area allowing the VOC's to be efficiently and rapidly absorbed.
When a more comprehensive Biotechnology Solution is implemented in a waste water situation, aeration increases the available oxygen to ensure that efficient full aerobic digestion of the organic waste takes place. This ensures that no H2S is produced and all of this substrate is fully aerobically digested to produce H20 and SO4. In addition, under aerobic conditions, malodorous VOC's are reduced or eliminated.
Artificial Grass / Synthetic Grass Cleaning
The use of harmful cleaning chemical cleaners are no longer approved nor desired as the safety of people, children, pets and the environment are of paramount importance.
The focus today is to provide a natural and safe cleaning option that will remove pet urine odours as well as eliminate and break down other organic waste such as faeces, saliva and vomit.
This will provide peace of mind for the user
In many cases artificial grass manufacturers recommended the physical removal of the solid waste followed by a wash down with water or application of a mild soap or commercial cleaner and final hose down. This would also be their preferred recommendation for removing urine. A mixture of vinegar and water is also suggested for the removal of more stubborn odours. Regular hosing down of the artificial grass with water is a sensible hygiene practice and rain is a great natural cleaner.
Quality artificial lawn has numerous drainage holes and if correctly installed with effective drainage, the water will freely drain away. New developments in backing cloth material now reduce and eliminate the absorption of waste and in addition the latest manufacturing techniques now allow more penetration of UV which will kill harmful bacteria.
However, urine and organic waste will still wash through the grass, the infill and backing material and even into the base foundation. Over time this material can accumulate and create a build-up of harmful bacteria with the associated bad odours.
Simple washing will not work
An understanding of urine
Urine whether human or animal, has three main components:
1. Urea, a slightly sticky substance
2. Urochrome, gives urine its yellow colour
3. Uric Acid, is a mild acid, rich in nitrogen.
Uric acid contains non-soluble salt crystals, which is the biggest challenge to removing urine from surfaces and materials.
The first two components can be washed away with ordinary cleaning and commercially-available cleaning products, but the uric acid crystals are extremely insoluble and remain tightly bonded to the surface. After initial cleaning and drying with ordinary products, it may appear that the problem is solved. However, any type of moisture will reactivate those remaining crystals and the smell returns, as strong as ever.
There are a number of urine odour products available to the retail customer. Most are composed of surfactants (detergents) and a masking agent (e.g. vanilla, lemon, citrus fragrance). Some use alcohol as a solvent and others are chemicals, whose molecules encapsulate, or coat, the urine molecules and "seal in" the odour. In most cases the odour is only treated for a short term and will return. None appear to have great success with old, dried and accumulated urine deposits.
Pets compound the problem because of their territory-marking behaviour and their very acute sense of smell. Even when the urine odour is unnoticeable to humans, animals detect it and are compelled to re-apply their own scent! So once an animal has "gone" in one spot, they frequently return to it again and again, no matter what we do.
The only effective means is to use a bio enzymatic cleaner formulation containing a combination of microorganisms that degrade the uric acid crystals, in addition to removing the other components of urine. With the source of the odour AND the stain removed, the problem is solved
For this reason, several artificial grass manufacturers are now recommending bio enzyme and green cleaners for use on synthetic surfaces.
The advantages of the product are numerous:
· Environmentally friendly
· Pleasant smelling
· Contains beneficial microorganisms
· Deep and long lasting cleaning action
· Degrades organic waste
· Provides residual cleaning control
· Does not contain any harmful chemicals
· Natural ingredients
· Easy and safe to use
· Removes odours and is not a masking agent
Application of product is via a spray or wash and it is recommended that the product be allowed a short dwell time on the surface to enable the microorganisms to penetrate the organic waste and initiate the degradation process. Allow to dry and then wash off with water. The solution will drain under the turf and into the substrate where it will continue to work.
Best to apply in the evenings or on cool days. Do not apply on hot days when evaporation will remove the product and reduce the effectiveness.
Avoid use on rainy days as dilution will reduce effectiveness.
It may be necessary to apply several treatments especially where the organic waste deposits are old or extensive. In some cases there may be a stronger smell than normal as the biological process is activated but this will reduce and disappear as the accumulated waste is eliminated.
Repeat applications until all odour is removed
Regular treatment with the bio enzymatic cleaner will keep the artificial lawn free from odour and harmful bacteria.
Some examples of basic cleaning recommendations taken from websites
Q: Is the artificial grass pet and child friendly?
Yes. All of our artificial grass is CSIRO tested for lead free and unlike most companies we check our products regularly. Also the synthetic grass is resistant to staining and it’s simply a matter of picking up and flushing any mess with water.
Q: Can pets harm my artificial grass?
We sell this product for use in kennels. Urine is not a problem as it absorbs into the sand and rubber and eventually evaporates. Other messes clean up the same as natural grass, using a scooper or shovel. You may also spray the soiled area with a hose then simply brush the turf back into place if necessary.
Q: For lightly soiled areas
A basic mixture of warm water with a 5% solution of a mild household detergent can work wonders! Simply sponge mop the affected spot and then rinse.
Q: How to clean urine
It is also easy to clean if your pets use your synthetic lawn as a toilet. Animal droppings and urine are easily washed away with detergent and warm water, rinse with water afterwards.
Some examples of enzyme cleaning recommendations taken from websites
Depending on the number of pets you own, enzyme neutralisers can effectively limit and control odours.
For extreme odours that do not seem to go away even after several types of treatments, apply an eco-friendly enzymatic cleaner designed for artificial grass.

“I have a large number of cats and 3 dogs litter tray and dog smells had become an issue. I've found a fabulous product for all odour control situations. It called Enzymatic. I doubt you'll find a better product. It actually destroys the smells not just try to hide them.”
Enzyme PRO ™ – DustsuppresSOR
Enzyme PRO™ DustsuppresSOR is a powerful binding liquid penetration that is applied to stockpiles, embankments, unpaved roads and shoulders, yard areas, parking lots and tailings. It penetrates, saturates and bonds surface dust and aggregate together to form a complete, dust free, water resistant and resilient surface.
Conventional ways of controlling the dangers of dust sometimes create greater problems than the dust itself. Use of the wrong dust suppressants has caused lingering environmental and health concerns. Increasingly, legislators are outlawing dust suppressants that are found to be dangerous to humans and our natural environment
Water often becomes the dust suppressant of choice. Water provides only a short-term remedy that is labour-intensive and requires costly multiple applications.
DustsuppresSOR is wetter than water, ten times wetter than water. DustsuppresSOR aids immensely in compaction by virtue of the way in which it controls hydration, thereby, decreasing water surface tension and promoting a uniform transmission of moisture throughout the soil. The principal object of DustsuppresSOR is to penetrate the soil more rapidly allowing a more through mix and an even distribution of moisture using far less water. DustsuppresSOR hydrates far slower; seven to ten times slower than water alone, so is ideal for dry hot days and even dry hot and windy days when the truck just can't keep up.
Secondly, DustsuppresSOR is specifically formulated to be ten times wetter than water alone to control dehydration, so that the soil wets out more rapidly and stays at the desired moisture content for a longer workable time.
DustsuppresSOR saves on haulage both in distance and time, all the time the truck is away the soil is dehydrating faster than the truck can travel, pump and return. Some soils using just water need to be left over night for correct penetration; with DustsuppresSOR you can use the soil right away.
The proportions of DustsuppresSOR required to bringing a given soil or gravel to a workable consistency varies with the ratio of sand and clay in the soil. A soil high in clay content absorbs a greater amount of moisture before it reaches plastic state than soil high in sand content. Other factors are the soil moisture content on the day and the ambient temperature coupled to the degree of wind, as all of these factors affect the rate of hydration and dehydration.
