About Us

Acti-Zyme Products Ltd.

Acti-Zyme Products Ltd, commonly referred to as Acti-Zyme or AZ has been actively treating and restoring wastewater treatment systems for over 66 years with over 500 clients in Western Canada. Our team has extensive expertise and leadership in wastewater management, to properly treat all organic wastewater sludge produced by wastewater plants and lagoon/pond systems.

Acti-Zyme owns and manufactures proprietary, exclusive formulas, which has been developed and perfected in Canada. Acti-Zyme uses its proprietary Microbial Enhancement Technology (MET) granules to treat sludge, fat, grease or other organic build up, through the process of  ‘Bioaugmentation’ to digest and breakdown soft organic biosolids found in wastewater treatment systems. This technology and process safeguards current infrastructure, leaving it unharmed while increasing the biological activity to return the system to its normal operating capacity.

Acti-Zyme has focused on technical development, product testing and partnerships with consultants, and utilities for technical third-party verification, and pilot projects. With a combined 110 years of experience in the field we have:

  • Independently verified the effectiveness of Acti-Zyme in over 40 independent studies,
  • Documented and continue to study results in full scale and pilot scale applications with municipalities, including conducting analysis of before and after outflow readings to verify effectiveness
  • Improved the quality of inputs, including a new very effective bacteria consortium which has proven to be extremely effective in wastewater management,
  • Developed new products to solve important issues like FOG build up
  • Partnered with Dr. Pierre Fanfan, a bio-scientist, to pioneer new biological solutions
  • Conducting Research & Development on new biological wastewater products that will allow for advanced treatment and management of emerging contaminants of concern
  • Completed full scale anaerobic digestions studies with a focus in wastewater management, project development and environmental & economic sustainability.
