We offer cost-effective, environment-friendly bioremediation products for mitigation of contamination. Our products are used for remediation of fuel oil contamination in soil and water as well as elimination of fuel oil odors during and after any major or minor oil spill. The fuel oil odors in cars, SUV, truck and boats have been removed almost instantly making air in the interior of vehicles safe.
Our mission is to provide a cost-effective alternative to traditional cleanup of fuel oil contamination.
Our bioremediation products have been used in cleanup of many industrial and residential fuel oil spills and are effective against a variety of fuel oils.
- Aviation fuel
- Transformer oil
- Home heating oil
Our products remediate a wide range of hydrocarbon contamination hence they are ideally suited for most oil cleanup projects. In most cases, remediation is achieved in a single application and within a very short period of time and requires minimum supervision. Once the site is remediated, there is no waste for disposal as the bacteria die a natural death.
*Disclaimer: SpillRemed is on the US EPA’s NCP Product Schedule. This listing does not mean that EPA approves, recommends, licenses, certifies or authorizes the use of SpillReme (Marine) on an oil discharge. This listing means only that data have been submitted to the US EPA as required by subpart J of the National Contingency Plan 40 CFR Section 300.915.
How they work
Our products contain naturally-occurring bacteria ready to consume oil at an astonishing rate. This is primarily achieved due to the patented (US Patent: 6,267,888) delivery mechanism that enables the bacteria to overcome the acclimatization barrier during the initial phase of the spill through biodispersion . This sets in motion a process of accelerated bioremediation that results in almost 90% reduction of total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) within 3 weeks’ time. These microbes consume the oil and other hydrocarbons by converting them into harmless water and carbon dioxide. Once the contaminating oil or food for microbes is consumed, the bacteria die a natural death, without leaving behind any residue for disposal, saving time and money . Our products contain naturally occurring bacteria and do not contain any genetically modified forms.
In most cases our products have been able to drastically reduce cleanup time to an amazing three weeks! Spills are treated in situ for even open water spills without skimming, no off-site disposal of oily waste, no need for costly soil excavation, nor expensive and long term groundwater treatment systems. Our products save thousands of dollars in unnecessary expense for disposal of hazardous waste. Most importantly, all our products help in restoring the environment back to pre-spill levels.
Here are just two examples of our products’ success:
- In a recently conducted cleanup of 140 gallons of heating oil in a Pennsylvania home, basement fumes and fuel oil odor were gone within one hour after with VaporRemed.After two additional applications of VaporRemed, the homeowners were able to reoccupy their house.
- An analysis of soil samples taken from fuel oil spilled at a Virginia residence showed TPH values of 18,880 parts per million (ppm). Four weeks after treatment with AgroRemed, the TPH values were reduced to 290 ppm, a 98-percent reduction , well below the state’s acceptable limits of 500 ppm.
And, best of all, they work in every situation , from large-scale oil spills that threaten beaches and wildlife to basement heating oil overflows that can disrupt a family’s life.
VaporRemed almost instantly and permanently eliminates fumes from heating oil and fuel oil spills, thereby improving the indoor air quality and allowing residents and pets to quickly recover from the harmful effects of those fumes. VaporRemed is a bioremediation agent that eliminates the fumes by treating the source – namely the spilled oil. It is not a deodorizer, fume suppressant or air freshener. VaporRemed is available in liquid form and can be sprayed directly on any surface. It has been effectively used to rid the clothes of strong odor of heating oil particularly those working in oil company or maintenance shops. Many homeowners and heating oil companies find VaporRemed to be an easy-to-use, do-it-yourself solution for eliminating heating oil fumes. In fact some of the oil companies carry VaporRemed as a part of their toolbox kit.
Heating Oil Fumes Gone in Minutes!
SpillRemed (Marine) – Case studies and testimonials
SpillRemed (Marine)® is included in the National Contingency Product list of the U.S. EPA as a bioremediation agent for in situ treatment of open water oil spills and for shoreline cleanup. SpillRemed (Marine)® is effective even on weathered oil and can be introduced at any time in the life cycle of the spill. SpillRemed (Marine)® is effective both on small spills as well as larger spills and, thus, can be used as a do-it-yourself solution by small boat and marina operators. SpillRemed (Marine)® is non-toxic and is not harmful to marine life, and it has been found to be an excellent pre-treatment agent for oiled birds. In addition, the U.S. Coast Guard has issued a ‘no objection’ statement for use of SpillRemed (Marine)® on board ships and boats.
HydroRemed is a bioremediation solution for in situ treatment of free product or fuel oil in ground water thereby effectively reducing the levels of BTEX compounds (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene) usually relased by fuels in ground water. HydroRemed like other products reduces the time required for remediation of ground water that normally takes many years by conventional methods.
AgroRemed is effective in cleanup of petroleum contaminated soils in short periods of time, typically reducing the TPH content by more than 90% within 3 weeks under favorable conditions. It is essential that the soil is moist for survival of the oil-eating bacteria present in AgroRemed. Under drought conditions this can be achieved by wetting the soil with water free from chlorine. and covering it with straw to prevent both evaporation and maintain favorable temperature in the soil. Importantly, AgroRemed has been found to help restore soil to near pre-spill condition.
