International a wholly owned subsidiary of Cortec® Corporation, in
the business of manufacturing microbial based bio-products, presents a newest
addition to its rich line of products - SPILL KIT 35S,
new bioremediation product for hydrocarbons spills.
Oil spills often result in
immediate, long-term and expensive environmental damage that can last for
decades after the spill occurs. SPILL KIT 35S,
an environmentally safe and economical alternative to the use of chemicals
includes 2 applications for spills up to 10 square meters. It is designed to
bring two of the best hydrocarbon degrading technologies into one to enhance
the three steps of bioremediation.
Each kit includes two of Bionetix best selling
products: BIOSURF, a plant derived biosurfactant solution rich in nutrients
that promotes bacterial activation and solubilizes the hydrocarbons, and BCP
35S, a powder blend of beneficial and naturally occurring microorganisms
(Bacillus and Pseudomonas) specialized to degrade hydrocarbons molecules such
as: gasoline, diesel, crude oil, and BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethylene and
Bioaugmentation with SPILL KIT 35S will
deep clean soil that has received an accidental spill by enhancing the natural
degradation process both by the action of specialized microorganisms and by
increasing the solubility of the waste.
There are several
guidelines that should be followed to obtain the optimum degradation rates of
the organic contaminants. Bioremediation of contaminated soils may take place
in a lined treatment cell in the case of excessive runoff.
Direct application of the microorganism
and nutrient solution can be used for treatment. Soil pH, nutrient levels,
oxygen availability, and moisture content are critical to the success of
Tilling the earth after application of
the SPILL KIT 35S solution will enhance the treatment efficiency. SPILL KIT 35S
can also be used to treat residual waste after absorbing pads have been used.
