Control odor and hydrogen sulfide with Protein Matrix!


Pilot & Case Studies

Hydrogen Sulfide Elimination

Spring 2015

Protein Matrix has also been shown to reduce hydrogen sulfide production due to FOG accumulation. Hydrogen sulfide, which can be produced by bacteria that thrive on FOG mats, is not only extremely dangerous (even limited exposure can be deadly), but can also cause significant structural damage to pipes and lift stations.

Protein Matrix was applied to a lift station with a history of FOG accumulation and high concentrations of hydrogen sulfide.   Throughout treatment, not only did the lift station remain free of FOG, hydrogen sulfide was not detected (see graphs at left), potentially saving the municipality in question thousands of dollars in repair costs and eliminating the risk of tragedy during a cleaning or repair event.
