how it works
Waste digestion involves
three distinct bacteria types
aerobic bacteria which break
solids down into fatly and
amino acids, anaerobic
bacteria, which convert those
acids into nuisance gases
such as ammonia, hydrogen
sulfide, and methane, and
facultative bacteria capable
of performing cither role
