Surface Oil Spill Bioremediation

Petrox microbes provide quick response surface oil spill bioremediation.  Petrox can be applied to the oil surface with a backpack sprayer to initiate rapid bioremediation.  This approach protects surface water and vegetation with minimal surface traffic.

In the following example, an oil spill affected the vegetation and surface water at the edge of a lake. Contractors applied Petrox to the oil surface on vegetation and soil.  Periodic soil samples tracked the results.  After 90 days, the maximum and average concentrations decreased by more than 95% at a very low cost.
