MicroC® 2000 Series

One of the most cost-effective and non-hazardous carbon sources on the market

The MicroC® 2000 series is a proprietary glycerin-based and non-hazardous product series. It is widely used in denitrification, Enhanced Biological Phosphorus Removal (EBPR) and BOD addition applications. This carbon source has a very high COD value (1,100,000 mg COD/L) and is the lowest cost, non-hazardous product on a $/lb COD basis available in the market.



  • Eliminates flammability and toxicity concerns of traditional chemicals such as methanol
  • Provides capital cost savings vs. installation of flammable liquid storage and feed system
  • Non-hazardous product enables rapid and flexible deployment of carbon augmentation solutions

Performance advantages

  • Rapid start-up/acclimation
  • Superior cold weather performance

Consistent and superior quality

  • Rigorous end to end quality control program
  • Consistent Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) values
  • No product degradation during long-term storage

Environmentally sustainable

  • Derived from abundant, renewable resources produced in the United States vs. largely imported fossil-fuel derived carbon sources (methanol)
  • USDA BioPreferred designation


Validated performance

  • MicroC® products in use at over 550 plants in North America
  • Performance is validated by leading equipment/process suppliers, consulting engineers and academic institutions
  • Full scale, documented performance validation for:
  • Nitrate removal
  • Enhanced Biological PhosphorusRemoval (EBPR)
  • Metals removal


  • BOD augmentation
  • Perchlorate removal
  • Fixed film biological processes (i.e., denitrification filters)
  • Startup/acclimation dynamics
  • Cold weather performance
  • Denitrification rates and kinetic parameters determined by Northeastern University

Sizes available

  • Bulk (1000-4500 gallon)
  • 265 gallon IBC/tote
  • 55 gallon drum
  • 30 gallon drum
  • 5 gallon pail
