An enriched, microbial consortium containing species of Dehalococcoides sp. (DHC) for anaerobic bioaugmentation
Designed for use at sites where chlorinated contaminants are present and unable to be completely biodegraded via the existing microbial communities
What is it?
Bio-Dechlor INOCULUM Plus (BDI Plus)® is an enriched, natural microbial consortium containing species of Dehalococcoides sp. (DHC) which are capable of completely dechlorinating contaminants during in situ anaerobic bioremediation processes.
How it works
BDI Plus is provided in a liquid form which is directly injected into the contaminated subsurface either with, or following, a staged-release electron donor (food source) application. Once in place, this microbial consortium accelerates the extant rate of chlorinated contaminant degradation from parent compounds to daughter products like dichloroethene (DCE) and vinyl chloride (VC) and completely through to harmless end products such as ethene and ethane.
BDI Plus can be used at most any stage of a project to ensure the rapid and complete degradation of chlorinated compounds. Specifically, BDI Plus can be added to an aquifer at the beginning of a project in situations where there is a lack of, or suboptimal populations of Dehalococcoides sp.

Electron Donor Compatibility
BDI Plus is compatible with most electron donors however it is recommended that remediation practitioners use a staged-release technology like 3-D Microemulsion® or AquiFix™ for optimal performance and longevity.
