OIL BIOREMEDIATION (OBR) TECHNOLOGY

Over long periods of time and without human intervention, nature eliminates both natural and most manmade pollution. This happens as naturally occurring microorganisms, enzymes, chemicals and weather combine to eliminate toxins. Recent advances in technology have made it possible to greatly accelerate these natural processes by selecting, concentrating and acclimating naturally occurring micro organisms to attack and eliminate many hydrocarbon based toxic materials in a matter of weeks rather than decades. The use of these microorganisms to consume and eliminate dangerous or unwanted hydrocarbon based contaminants like petroleum products is called Oil Bioremediation.

The process is as under:



USEPA recommendations:

  • Bioremediation is very safe because it relies on microbes that naturally occur in soil
  • These microbes are helpful and pose no threat to people at the site or the community
  • No dangerous chemicals are used in bioremediation. Because bioremediation changes harmful chemicals into harmless gases and water, such chemicals are destroyed


Salient features of Oil Degrading Bacteria:

  • Reduces LEL levels to zero immediately and renders volatile spills non flammable
  • Microbes for petroleum bioremediation and clean up of hydrocarbon spills
  • All the ingredients are biodegradable, non-pathogenic, non-toxic, non-flammable, and non-carcinogenic
  • Breaks down and dissolves hydrocarbons
  • Reduces worker exposure to volatile chemicals and hazardous cleaning compounds
  • Neutral pH, non-corrosive
  • Produces  highly oxidized non toxic sludge
