Eco Friendly Cleaning Products Like Biological Bio-enzymatic Drain Openers & Cleaners Are Best, Safest and Environmentally Friendly Drain Cleaner


A Recap:

In part 1 of this 2 part series on Biological Bio-enzymatic Drain Cleaners we established that:

  • Most businesses with product residue will encounter drain blockages with associated odour problems. Blockages will also add to sewerage costs on account of reduced flow.

  • These blockages have a tendency to occur when it is least desirable

  • Some traditional solutions have resulted in pouring an even stronger cocktail of chemicals into drains in an attempt to free up the blockage. Such solutions are temporary at best.

  • We provided evidence to suggest that not only do traditional chemical solutions lower the natural pH within drains by killing off the natural digestive bacteria increasing the chance for future blockages, but they also damage and corrode pipes and plumbing contributing to expensive replacement and repairs. There is also the significant adverse impact on the environment that results from the continued use of chemicals that are not readily biodegradable.

  • We highlighted a superior solution to unclogging drain blockages that comes from nature itself. Biological bio-enzymatic drain cleaners harness bacteria producing enzymes to digest all forms of organic waste, making it one of the best eco friendly cleaning products.

  • Such products not only digest and liquefy organic waste but they are also pH neutral. This means they help restore the natural biodiversity in drains and plumbing lines that is so important for ongoing digestion and free flowing drains. Additionally, their neutral pH does not harm or corrode in any way drains, pipes and plumbing fixtures.


The Enzymes in The Eco Friendly Drain Cleaners - Bio-enzymatic Products That Clean and Maintain Your Drains:

In the second of this 2 part series, I will provide an outline of the nature of the enzymes that are produced from our biological bio-enzymatic drain cleaners and products generally. Specifically, I will comment on:

  • Why bacteria producing enzymes are used in our products and not enzymes alone.
  • An outline of the bacteria we have used and why we use these strands of bacteria.
  • An outline of the enzymes produced from these strands of bacteria when placed in an environment with organic soiling.
  • The applications to which our products can be put to use to aid in the digestion and liquefaction of organic waste.


Why Bacteria Producing Enzymes:

Many products today contain bacteria or enzymes that can clear blocked pipes, break down oil or grease and remediate the environment. To appreciate and understand the potential of these products, we need to understand their nature as well as their differences.

Bacteria are not enzymes. Bacteria are single cell microorganisms. Like all living cells, bacteria produce and use enzymes to break down or assimilate chemical compounds necessary for cell survival.

Enzymes, on the other hand are biological catalysts. That is, they help a chemical reaction take place quickly and efficiently. While enzymes are essential for all metabolic processes, they are not alive. What makes enzymes unique is their ability to facilitate biochemical reactions without undergoing change themselves. Enzymes not only work efficiently and rapidly, but they are also biodegradable. Enzymes are responsible for many essential biochemical reactions in microorganisms, plants, animals and human beings.

Factors that are important for enzyme action alone or for bacteria action via enzymes are temperature, pH (degree of acidity or alkalinity) and solubilisation of the substrates.

Pure enzymes vary in pH requirements and stability. When pure enzymes are added to a building environment such as a drain, the enzyme is usually short-lived due to the fragile nature of the enzyme under those conditions.

Accordingly, Green Earth Hygiene biological bio-enzymatic products use bacteria producing enzymes. The disadvantage in using enzyme solutions alone is that pure enzymes will disintegrate over a short period of time. By contrast, bacteria are more robust and are capable of colonizing and will reproduce to produce more enzymes until the food source, organic waste is depleted.

Bacillus Bacteria Strains:

Introducing selected, naturally-occurring, non-pathogenic bacteria which produce enzymes to organic waste is a safe and environmentally friendly drain cleaner that is responsible for augmenting and accelerating nature’s own biodegradation process.

All bacteria in Green Earth Hygiene biological bio-enzymatic products (eco friendly cleaning products) are classified by the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) as Class 1 organisms. Class 1 organisms are defined as:

  • Naturally Occurring – natural bacteria, endemic to earth, not genetically engineered
  • Non-Pathogenic – will not cause disease
  • Non-opportunistic – will not cause disease in a compromised host.


Biological bio-enzymatic products - Environmentally friendly drain cleaner, which is one of the most demanding eco friendly cleaning products of Green Earth Hygiene are comprised of certain Bacillus bacteria strains. Specifically:

  • Bacillus subtilis – ATCC #6051A
  • Bacillus licheniformus – ATCC #12759
  • Bacillus megaterium – ATCC #14581


These Bacillus strains have been selected primarily because of their ability to produce large quantities of enzymes very quickly and for the type of enzymes they produce.

The Enzymes Produced From Bacteria Bacillus Strains:

The blend of Bacillus strains selected in our biological bio-enzymatic products has been selected for both their dynamic enzyme production capabilities and the type of enzymes produced. These enzymes and the organic compounds they degrade and liquefy are listed in the table below.

Enzyme Produced

Catabolises (breaks down)




Starch and carbohydrate

      Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

      Hi! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this page to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
