S200 Oil Gone - Technical Info

A bioremediation technique for restoration of Hydrocarbon Polluted Sites


Hydrocarbon biodegradation

Biodegradation of hydrocarbons in Nature is a slow process. The process is limited by oxygen availability, temperature and most importantly the availability of nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus).  Numerous microorganisms already exist in the environment and S200 stimulates the growth of specific microorganisms, significantly accelerating the speed at which hydrocarbons are biodegraded.


The main characteristics of S200 are:


The easily metabolizable carbon source in S200 enables biomass adaptation, quick growth of specific hydrocarbon degrading microorganisms and an increase in hydrocarbon biodegradation kinetics.


Toxicity-Ecotoxicity

The hydrocarbon biodegradation mechanisms of S200 do not have detrimental effects on the environment. S200 does not cause eutrophic phenomena and has good effect on the

behavior of phytoplankton in a hydrocarbon environment.

Field of Application

Biological treatment with S200 is complementary of traditional hydrocarbon contamination cleanup techniques. The main applications are:


In special cases, S200 can be co-currently applied with specific non-indigenous bacteria.


Application

S200’s physical and chemical characteristics allow application with all traditional spraying methods such as marine, pressurized or airborne spraying.

The recommended application rate is 1:1 by weight compared to the hydrocarbons; this typically represents 1-5 pounds per square meter.

Advantages have been noted in spraying S200 in two applications, approximately ten (10) days apart. This favors the adaptation of the microorganisms, thus gradually increasing the biodegradation kinetics.
