Petrox™ delivers active, rapid bioremediation of environmental contamination caused by industrial and commercial hydrocarbons.
An All-Natural Product
It contains a highly-concentrated solution of live, strains of lyophilized (freeze-dried) Pseudomonas organisms that occur naturally in the earth’s ecosystem. These cultures are free of pathogens and there is no artificial mutation or genetic engineering involved. Extracted from a once-contaminated site and isolated under controlled laboratory conditions, these “hungry bacteria®” have only one purpose in life: to seek and destroy petroleum hydrocarbons, organic solvents, and semi-volatile hydrocarbons at their source, and then quickly convert them into harmless, naturally recyclable by-products.
From Brown To Green Faster
Site closure often occurs in a matter of weeks or months versus several years or more for other methods, giving users the combined benefit of fast site closure and remarkable cost savings.
Available in a standard blend or custom formulated for specific needs, Petrox can be used as a highly effective stand-alone decontamination solution or as a powerful augmentation to speed the remediation of existing treatment systems.
Petrox for light petroleum range- BTEX compounds (Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, Xylene), Dichlorotoluene (2,5-), Dioctylphthalate (common plasticizer), Fuels (gasoline, diesel and heating oils), Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK, 2-butanone), Methylene Chloride, Mineral spirits, Naphthalene, Stoddard solvents, Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), and trimethylbenzene isomers.
Petrox for heavy petroleum range– Anthracene, Chlorotoluene (M-), Chlorotoluene (O-), Chlorotoluene (P-), Chrysene, Cresols, Creosote, Fluorene, Oils and Greases (Food and petroleum), Pesticides, including 1,2-D, 2,4-D, Aldrin, Endrin, Pentachlorophenol (PCP), Phenanthrene, and Phenol.
Each Petrox product batch is manufactured under sterile conditions, and subjected to stringent quality control protocols before release for shipment. Available as a freeze-dried powder and hydrated on site for the highest possible microbial activity, each culture is provided with unique nutrient/growth factor formulation to maximize viable cell count.
