Hydrocarbon Bioremediation

Hydrocarbon Bioremediation

One of the major challenges faced by the petroleum industry today is the contamination of soils, groundwater and surface water with hydrocarbons. Current methods for the degradation of petroleum contamination has proven to be expensive and if to let nature take, its course can take a considerable amount of time to digest the contaminants naturally. Currently accepted methods of disposal would include incineration and landfill application, but these can be prohibitively expensive when the contaminated soil is in large quantities. Mechanical and chemical methods have also been used to remove hydrocarbons from sites, but have had limited effectiveness and can be expensive. Bioremediation is a natural tool that can be used for the treatment of these contaminated sites since it can be both cost-effective and lead to complete removal of the soil or water contaminants.

RXBiotics contains a broad spectrum of microorganisms selected specifically for their ability to degrade hydrocarbons. RXBiotics also utilizes a proprietary blend of nutrients, biostimulants, micronutrients and other cofactors that help optimize the remediation process.
