Eco-Gest® is a food grade enzyme producing bacteria based product designed to digest organic matter in waste lagoons. Eco-Gest® capsules are intended for direct addition to organic waste lagoons or liquid manure containment facilities. It is manufactured in a Safe Feed/Safe Food facility and contains Yucca schidigera whole plant powder extract and Bacillus subtilis in an all natural capsule casing. Yucca schidigera whole plant powder extract binds ammonia, slowing its release into the atmosphere and decreasing manure odors. This also reduces the toxic effects of ammonia on beneficial waste digesting microbes. Bacillus subtilus, a microbial that speeds up the digestion of solid waste, is also in Eco-Gest®. Bacillus subtilus produces digestive enzymes such as protease, amylase, and cellulase that break down protein, starch and fiber, respectively.
