Drylet was founded on the principle of helping nature. We are a bioremediation technology company whose proprietary biocatalysts optimize biological processes in wastewater and waste-to-energy facilities in particular. Outcomes include solids reduction up to 70% in wastewater treatment plants and animal production facilities, and up to 30+% biogas production boost in biodigesters (the full list of the industries we serve is available here.)
Our cost-effective and zero-footprint, zero-CAPEX solution to biosolids accumulation improves operations, reduces environmental impacts, and streamlines regulatory compliance.
Our products contain no genetically modified organisms or chemical ingredients. They are safe for human, animal, and aquatic life.

The Drylet Advantage
Drylet combines advanced material science and microbiology in its patented microbe-delivery platform that accelerates any biological process. The dry-to-the-touch biocatalysts are loaded with billions of carefully selected microbes to digest organic waste, overcome undesirable bacteria, or remediate oil spills. Significantly higher microbe counts and more effective delivery process than traditional bioremediation translates into reliable results.
From municipal to industrial wastewater, Bio React AD boosts biogas generation and increases solids reduction in anaerobic digestion processes.
From municipal to industrial wastewater, Aqua Assist improves treatment operations and sludge reduction.
ManureMagic® reduces solids and inhibits foaming in deep pits, lagoons, and pull-plug systems. A Purdue University study found it lowers H2S and odor by 50% and 43% respectively, while a recent Iowa State University found 75% foam inhibition and 33% solids reduction.
A clean grease trap system can make the difference for customer satisfaction. Bio-React delivers billions of live microbes for consuming fats, oils and greases that remove nasty buildup in your kitchen plumbing and also treats your grease trap. This means no odor complaints and happy customers.
Patented dry product delivering billions of live non-genetically modified microorganisms for bioremediation of oil, gasoline, diesel, grease or any other hydrocarbon-based contamination.
What Clients Are Saying
I am highly recommending Drylet’s Aqua Assist. It is working amazingly well at our ancient, in-dire-need-of-upgrading, extended aeration plant. Even with all the rags, grit, and other trash all swirling around these amazing bugs, they are still getting the job done well enough for me to want to recommend it to you. If you’re on the fence, all I can say is “go for it, and give it a try.” I’m certain that you won’t be disappointed.Keith Milne, Chief Operator, Town of Deerfield, MA
I couldn’t run my plant without Drylet, it simply does what it says it does.Charles Paige, Chief Wastewater Operator, City of Trinity
We have been using ManureMagic® for three years. Even our neighbors have noticed that less odor is coming from the barns and during manure application to the fields.Jake Grodahl, Pork Producer in North West Iowa
I have reduced the number of hauls by 50%. I have gained capacity in my digesters and have reduced the number of aeration basins. I can now take on a larger load to the plant if needed.Jon D., Project Manager at a 5 MGD WWTP
We had a major grease problem at a couple of my restaurants and the smell was driving away a lot of business. We had a chance to sample Drylet’s product and it took care of the problem within a week! Happy customer here for life!Matt Jones, Restaurant owner
ManureMagic® solved the odor issues that had been giving me headaches for 20 years. I couldn’t recommend it more.Mike Johnson, Farmer
There was little to no crusting in the ManureMagic® barn… It took a lot less time to agitate and to get a thorough mixture.Brent Frey, Owner of Frey Pork Production
I’ve been pumping manure pits for years. Recently, I had the opportunity to trial ManureMagic® in two side-by-side barns. After a whole season, I pumped both barns. The barn treated with ManureMagic® took 20% less time than the untreated one, and yielded more manure. The difference was really astounding! ManureMagic® is a real time saver.Steve Kruse, MSR Kruse Farm LTD
Drylet Aqua Assist worked wonders on one of our historically ‘troubled’ sewer plants. We decreased sludge hauling over 33%; increased digester solids by more than 1%; eliminated bulking in our clarifier and decreased our Total Suspended Solids by more than 50%, all without making any changes to our day-to-day plant operations.Jerri Heit, Field Utility Supervisor, SouthWest Water Company
We added ManureMagic® to the pits of each of our grower/finisher barns and within a few weeks the odor was cut by 50-75%. Being on the west side of a major highway, we wanted to remain proactive with odor control. We have been looking for something to help us with odor, and I think we’ve found the answer. ManureMagic® is easy to work with and has a pleasant smell. We strongly recommend ManureMagic®.Randy Lacklander, Iowa Farmer
Dutch municipal WWTP achieves 25% dry solids reduction with Drylet’s Aqua Assist, research study shows
Annual savings on sludge handling costs were confirmed in a six-month full-scale trial AMSTERDAM, the NETHERLANDS (September 22, 2020) – A 25% reduction in WAS (Waste Activated Sludge) production year-over-year, from 200 tons to 155 tons of dry solids, was achieved using Drylet’s Aqua Assist at WwTW Halsteren, a low-load biological treatment plant in the
EPA determines Drylet’s biocatalyst has no impact on RIN designation under Renewable Fuel Standard program
HOUSTON, Texas (June 8, 2020) – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined that Drylet’s renewable natural gas (RNG) boosting biocatalyst Bio React AD has no impact on biofuel pathways approved under the Renewable Fuel Standards (RFS) federal program, Drylet announces today. “Since Drylet’s technology is a catalyst material that is not converted to
Microbiology is the most readily available, scalable, affordable, effective technology to remediate sludge through mass-togas conversion, as reported in World Water Magazine (March/April 2020.) “Producing biogas is quickly emerging as a desirable strategy to generate revenue while complying with increasingly stringent climate policies,” said Drylet CEO Trevor Turbidy in reference to municipal and industrial wastewater treatment
