He elaborated that converting your kitchen waste into nutrients; natural homecare and products like floor cleaner, kitchen cleaner, dishwasher, shampoo, face wash, laundry detergent and many more.
He explained the participants about Microbial Fermentation of BioEnzyme, which requires fresh kitchen waste, water and jaggery, which was founded by Dr. Rosukon Poompanvong – an actively involved in enzyme research for more than 30 years and she encourages people to make garbage enzyme at home to ease global warming. The term BioEnzyme may be a misnomer as it may not contain the actual enzymes in technical terms. The terms Garbage Enzyme, Fruit Enzyme, Kitchen Waste Enzyme, Fermented Fruit Juice and now the name Bio Enzyme is popularized since a few years.
He said that growing plants without using chemical fertilizers can protect the environment and keep us healthy. Bioenzyme is very useful for agriculture. Repelling pest without using pesticides, by spraying the mixture of Bioenzymes with water on the lawn will reduce insect and it is a natural herbicidem which helping the plants to grow well. Bioenzymes can enhance photosynthesis. As a result, plants will get more nutrients and their roots can absorb more air. In addition, ozone, which is emitted by Bioenzymes, can help plants grow better and faster.
Building fertile soil Bioenzymes is a natural fertilizer. It can make a barren land fertile. Maintaining cleanliness, Bioenzymes is natural air freshener. Bioenzymes can improve drainage around your house and clean wastewater from factories and farms. Cleaning drainage system, by pouring Bioenzymes or its residues into sewers, cesspools and ditches, we can prevent pipes from being blocked, purify wastewater and ultimately clean rivers and oceans. It can replace cleaning chemicals that we normally use. It can also be used to water plants. It is economical, useful and beneficial to our health.
He advised that as a household cleanser, Bioenzymes can be used to eliminate odor, mold, dirt and oil cleaning floor, air conditioners, toilets, exhaust fans etc. In addition, pests such as flies, mosquitoes, rats and cockroaches will become fewer if we use Bio enzymes to clean our houses.
Since the process of making the BioEnzyme is similar to that of the vinegar making process, we would like to stick to the basics and call them as natural cleaning vinegar. Vinegar is also known for deep cleansing properties and have been used as a natural cleaning agent. Bio enzyme is nothing but natural cleaning vinegar that is produced by the simple fermentation of fruits, vegetables, flowers and leaves. Although any fruit peel, any vegetable peel, flower or leaf can be used to produce the natural cleaning vinegar. You can make use of any citrus peels.
Bioenzymes have tremendous potential to revolutionize the purchase patterns of chemical cleaners by the consumers. The organic natural vinegar is all-natural and it is easily biodegradable and environmentally friendly. There was an insight of the uses of Bioenzymes as growth boosters, insect and pest repellents, improvement of soil and its fertility. Usage of Bioenzymes in making compost and its use a compost inoculate.
