1. By oxygenating surface soil stopping the sulfur release

  2. By assisting in the production of biological nitrate

  3. By eliminating Cyanobacteria’s internal food reserve

  4. By stopping dead Cyanobacteria from becoming a sludge, thereby preventing its rebirth

  5. By naturally lowering high water surface tension caused by nutrient-rich water due to increased oxygen through atmospheric diffusion.


Expanded explanation
  1. Breaking down large waste particles requires a lot of oxygen. Probiotic species Bacillus can do this process without the oxygen drain on the water system as in low oxygen concentrations it converts to nitrate or glutamate for its respiration, breaking down large waste solids to ammonia without the oxygen drain. This in turn allows oxygen naturally to come back into the water system allowing oxygen then to be taken up by the soils, which stops the sulfur pollution from the dead zone soil and restarting the nitrification cycle bacteria. 

  2. With oxygen now in the soils this allows the nitrogen cycle bacteria to complete the waste breakdown process, making biological nitrate 24-hour energy for microalgae and diatoms. This 24-hour energy source for microalgae and diatoms can quickly make them the dominant species over Cyanobacteria, whose energy source is limited by photosynthesis (12-hour energy).

  3. In order to survive with this limited energy, Cyanobacteria has developed a backup food reserve internally within its cell structure, in the form of high energy oil droplets; these allow for this 12-hour limited energy, enabling Cyanobacteria to stay dominant. Bacillus produces enzymes that remove these oil droplets from the Cyanobacteria’s protective cell wall and convert it to carbon dioxide. This two-stage approach sees Cyanobacteria rapidly dropping out of the waterway with microalgae and diatoms becoming the dominant species. This resets the natural ecology of the waterway putting the nutrients back through the food chain.

  4. Cyanobacteria also looks after itself by securing its future bloom. Once it has dealt with the excess nutrient load it dies off creating a thick rotting oily sludge on the bottom of the waterway which then becomes the next nutrient overload, thus securing its own rebirth. This is known as the cycle of Cyanobacteria. Bacillus stops dead Cyanobacteria from becoming a sludge, thus stopping the cycle of Cyanobacteria and returning the water way to its original good health.

  5. Bacillus produce;

  • ​Protease which break down proteins to amino acids.

  • Amylase which breaks down starches

  • Lipases which breaks down fats

This whole process helps lower water surface tension which allows more oxygen to enter the water way through atmospheric diffusion which helps defuse the eutrophication of water systems.
