What BioComplex Can Do For You

For Farmers

Using our animal health products, including feed ingredients and sanitisers, you can increase your profits from livestock farming with lower Feed Conversion Ratios, higher weight gains, and lower mortality rates increasing your crop rates and yields throughout the year.

For AD/Biogas

Digesters fitted with a micronisation unit dosed with our unique BioComplex additive allows for increased biological breakdown of the micronised substrate giving higher gas yields, less capital costs, and lower retention cycles giving you more profit and less headaches.

How BioComplex (BCx) Works

Where there is life, microbes are at work, breaking down waste and building up nutrients. All biological processes and many industries depend on how well microbes perform. Ekogea’s BCx underpins life by feeding and protecting the microbes in their ‘hosts’ and in the environment.

Supporting the microbes that do this work is complex but we make it simple. Wherever the environment is wet and warm, BCx assures efficiency and beneficial biological activity. BCx works in waste, in the gut, in soil, water and on skin - wherever microbes live and work.

So, whether it is supplying feed to animals, growing crops, cleaning waste water or producing energy from waste materials microbes make it happen and Ekogea’s BCx improves the natural process.

BioComplex (BCx) Products

BioComplex Feed

BCxF is a fully certified organic, 100% natural feed additive administered through drinking water that increases weight gain, improves gut health, animal welfare, and reduces ammonia and hydrogen sulphide in faeces

BioComplex Sanitiser

BCxS is applied to bedding or animal housing in spray from.  It improves animal welfare by reducing gaseous ammonia, pododermititis, and hock burn.

BioComplex for Crops

BCx900 helps activate, feed, and protect microbial populations responsible for rebuilding soil eco-systems leading to higher yields, improved resistance to pests and disease, and long term soil structure benefits

Ekogea's Solution

Ekogea’s solution has BioComplex at its heart. There are a number of different product versions, all 100% natural and all having specific applications in such areas as Anaerobic Digestion, Waste Water Treatment and Agriculture particularly animal health crops and soil.

BCx is a superior growth formula derived from marine algae providing rich ‘accessible’ food for microbes. It feeds and protects microbes using natural biological mechanisms accelerated by virtue of Ekogea’s unique process:

  • BCx provides huge ion exchange capacity via its organic polyuronic acid content;
  • Compounds and elements harmful to digestion and biological processes are buffered whilst sugar rich oligosaccharides feed active microbes to enhance proliferation and biological stability;
  • BCx high pH level reduces ammonia (NH₃ becomes NH₄) and H₂S (becomes elemental Sulphur);
  • The protection of anaerobes improves the environment without chemicals and in the case of Animal Health it reduces the incidence of disease, antibiotic use and reduces mortality;
  • There are no live bacteria or enzymes added; this is due to the hostile environment in the intestine where a very low survival rate of any introduced bacteria is likely, consequently we adopt the prebiotic approach to enhance the existing good bacteria.
  • The overall impact is improved biological performance

How Does BioComplex Achieve This?

Ion Exchange

ion exchange

Polyuronic acid in BCx provides ion exchange which paves the way for microbial diversity and health by reducing impediments like ammonia, antibiotics, sanitisers, and free ion inhibitors. In the real world, sound microbiology is optimised with the benefit of ion exchange.

Unique Food For Microbes

Microbial activity

Oligosaccharides in BCx offer microbes an ideal food rarely found in nature. Trace minerals and micro-nutrients also do their part.

Gel-like Matrix

The physical, gelling property of BCx evenly distributes nutrients which promotes healthy and diverse microbial colonies, in situ, where they do their work – in the gut, in soil or waste, in biogas plants and elsewhere….
