Does the BIOX® Process destroy indigenous microbial contaminant degraders?

Please note that high contaminant concentrations are limiting to microbial growth, and that the BIOX® Process rapidly reduces contaminant concentrations through chemical oxidation. Because the BIOX® Process is based on hydrogen peroxide technology, there is a potential for microbes coming in contact with this compound to be destroyed. However, a marked increase in microbial plate counts occurs after treatment with the BIOX® Process. The long-term presence (up to 1 year after Biox application) of dissolved oxygen and residual nutrients stimulates microbial growth and metabolic activity (as well as further reducing contaminant concentrations.)
