Eco Tabs

What is Eco-Tabs?


The Eco-Tabs products are multifunctional products, 100% ecological, for the treatment of wastewater. They contain a high concentration of beneficial bacteria, provide oxygen and balance the pH to facilitate the reproduction and development of the microorganisms provided. They allow to eliminate odors, prevent corosion and cause aerobic biodegradation of sludges, fats, oils and other organic components.

How does it works?


The Eco-Tabs by their weight fall into the bottom of the tanks and dissolve releasing micro particles that cause bubbles and diffuse efficient microorganisms creating an oxygen and bacterial shock that immediately attacks the contaminants. The tablets are designed to get rid of slowly thanks to the use of natural water-soluble polymers and non-pelleted binder polymers. All the ingredients in the products are environmentally safe (under international NSF standard) and do not require any special permit for their use in effluents or as pre-treatment

What's its benefits?

  • Significant reduction in Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD).
  • 90% reduction in hydrogen sulfide (H2SO4) and in atmospheric sulfuric acid (SO4)
  • Massive reduction in Total Suspended Solids (SST) and improvement in sedimentation.
  • Significant reduction in the need for mechanical aeration and increase in dissolved oxygen levels.
  • Massive reduction or elimination of bad odors and massive reduction in ammonium levels.
  • Elimination of sludge in lagoons.
  • Removal of foams
  • Massive reduction of fat accumulations.


  • Sodium Bicarbonate (Food Quality)
  • Na2CO3 sodium carbonate.
  • Citric acid (Food Quality).
  • Lactose (Food Quality).
  • Sodium percarbonate oxygenating agent (widely used in WWTP operations around the world).
  • 12 strains of non-pathogenic bacteria (Bacillus) and 2 non-pathogenic strains of pseudomonas.
  • Bacterial concentration: 5 billion CFU per gram (Colony-Forming Unit), which is doubled every 20 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

It is the application of a biological treatment, mainly microbes, for the cleaning of dangerous contaminants in the soil and in surface or underground waters. Microorganisms are used to convert contaminants into less harmful forms.

It is defined as Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) of a liquid to the amount of oxygen that microorganisms, especially bacteria (facultative aerobic or anaerobic: Pseudomonas, Escherichia, Aerobacter, Bacillius), fungi and plankton, consume during the degradation of substances organic substances contained in a sample of contaminated water. It is expressed in mgO2 / l. It is an indispensable parameter when it is necessary to determine the state or quality of the water of rivers, lakes, lagoons or effluents. The more organic matter the sample contains, the more oxygen your microorganisms need to oxidize it (degrade it). As the decomposition process varies according to the temperature, this analysis is performed in standard form for five days at 20 ° C; this is indicated as BOD5. According to the regulations, BOD values ​​are set maximum that wastewater can have, to be able to discharge them to rivers and other water courses. According to these values, it is established, if possible, to throw them directly or if they must undergo prior treatment.

The Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) is a parameter that measures the amount of substances susceptible to be oxidized by chemical means that are dissolved or suspended in a liquid sample. It is used to measure the degree of contamination and is expressed in milligrams of diatomic oxygen per liter (mg O2 / l). Although this method pretends to measure mainly the concentration of organic matter, it suffers interferences due to the presence of inorganic substances susceptible to be oxidized (sulfides, sulfites, iodides …), which are also reflected in the measurement. It is a method applicable in continental waters (rivers, lakes or aquifers), sewage, rainwater or water of any other origin that may contain an appreciable amount of organic matter.

They are bacteria that already exist in nature. They are called criollas, they are not genetically modified, they are only cultivated and selected. They do not have any danger.

  • Bacteria are the most abundant living unicellular microorganisms on the planet. They have the ability to multiply and consume waste of various types. Rather, bacteria are cleaning machines that nature provides to remove contamination.
  • Enzymes are NOT alive. They are chemical complexes produced by bacteria. You can not reproduce or consume waste. They serve to “cut” complex molecules and dilute pollution.
  • Chemists are NOT alive. They are molecules produced by the industry. They can be used to mimic the properties of bacteria or enzymes but are mostly harmful to the environment and inefficient
  • Bacteria consume waste. When a bacterium consumes waste, it converts it into harmless byproducts, carbon dioxide and water. When the waste is very complex, bacteria produce enzymes to degrade complex molecules into simple components that bacteria can digest.
  • Enzymes are not able to consume waste. In reality, what they do is convert complex waste molecules into simpler molecules. Bacteria remain necessary to consume simple molecules. Enzymes alone do not do the job completely.
  • Chemists can oxidize sludge and ammonia but generally only aggressive and dangerous chemicals can do so. The less dangerous chemicals in general are not very efficient. Chemists have considerable problems of toxicity and are prone to damage life in bodies of water.

Anaerobic decomposition (without oxygen) is a leading cause of bad odors. Anaerobic bacteria cause odors because they produce hydrogen sulfide (H2S), an invisible gas that smells like a rotten egg. The aerobic bacteria Eco-Tabs ™ do not cause these odors since they only produce carbon dioxide (CO2), a gas without color or odor.

Yes, Eco-Tabs ™ has presentations and sizes intended for industrial use and others for residential use. To see the presentations for the house, you can look for information here

  • The industrial dosages are studied in a personalized way since they depend on the goals, the level of initial contamination and the incoming flows. The products are applied on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. The doses for the houses are standardized and are of monthly application. In the housing section, you can find an application calculator with all the information you need.
