Remediation

REMEDIATION FORMULA

Bio remediation is not new. It has been used by nature for millions of years. Bio remediation is the use of microbes and other soil life to return the natural environment altered by contamination to acceptable standards, rather than digging and hauling the contaminated soil from the original site and contaminating a new site with this soil. Remediation Formula is designed to clean up environmental spills. Any hydrocarbon based substances such as oil, diesel, gasoline, kerosene, jet fuel, non-synthetic hydraulic fluids are candidates for bio remediation. This means that a spill of these types may be cleaned up to acceptable levels “in situ” (in place). This means no digging and hauling and contaminating other areas with the same contaminants. “In situ” remediation reduces cost, limits liability, and in some case gets one out of the chain of custody for contamination that has to be remediated at some time in the future a many times the cost of doing it now.

Application methods: Remediation Formula may be applied with ground spray rigs, back pack sprayers, pump up sprayers or any method to get even coverage and wet the area sufficiently without causing run off. It helps to put a small amount of N-P-K with the application along with humic/fulvic acid and some sort of energy source (quick food for the microbes). The amount of product and time it takes to remediate a spill depends on the type of spill, the environment, and type of soil.

Usage rates: In general, one quart of Remediation Formula will treat 1250 square feet 6-8 inches deep. The amount used will vary by site and contaminate. No two sites are alike. The site must remain around 30%-40% moisture and some cases must be covered with some sort of media to keep direct sunlight from drying the soil out rapidly. Use all the adjuvants mentioned above to help the microbes get started. More is not better… You should “know what the contamination level is before starting treatment”. The method of doing this is to send a sample in to a certified lab to determine what is there, the concentration, and best method of treating the site. Never just start treating, because you want know if the process you are using is reducing the levels or not. You do not have a starting measurement to measure against.

Benefits of using Remediation Formula:

1. Eliminates digging and hauling the contaminate
2. Remediation can be done with containment barriers to control effects of storm water
3. Safe and environmentally friendly way to handle spills
4. Easier to manage remote areas where transportation is difficult or impossible.
