What is Bioremediation?

A natural, green, cost effective alternative using microorganisms which exist in the surrounding environment.

Bioremediation is the process of using microbes to rid pollutants from a contaminated site. Microbes are added directly to the site eliminating the cost of removal and/or disposal of soils or water.

How does Bioremediation work?

Oil contains hydrocarbons, which are made up of varying amounts of carbon and hydrogen.

Microbes are introduced to the contaminated area, which then begin feeding on the hydrocarbons.

The microbes break apart the hydrocarbons and combine them with oxygen to create water and carbon dioxide.
