Various Bio-enzymes

Bio-enzymes (BEs) also known as eco-enzymes/garbage enzymes/fruit enzymes and technically; effective microorganisms (EMOs) are product of simple process of fermentation of 30–90 days. Any organic waste including fruits and vegetables’ peels or whole fruit could be made into bio-enzymes. These are alike pro-biotic vinegar and has multiple use ranging from home care to agricultural applications to environmental bio-remediation.
