Heating Oil Spill Cleanup Using the Small Spill Kit

Heating Oil Spill Cleanup Using the Small Spill Kit This post is a case study about the cleanup of a heating oil spill using the small spill kit by Custom Biologicals. The small spill kit is designed to clean up a number of small petroleum spills such as; heating oil spills, diesel oil spills, gasoline spills, and motor oil spills. The small kit contains Custom HC. Custom HC is a bioremediation product containing billions of petrophilic (oil eating) of specifically selected, beneficial bacteria. Case Study Heating Oil Spill Cleanup Client Category: Emergency response – heating oil spill Location: Pennsylvania Problem: 275 gallons of heating oil located in the basement were spilled when an automobile struck the building. The basement was a dirt surface and about 900 square yards were affected. TPH levels ranged from 3500-9800 ppm. Custom Treatment: The recommended dosage of Custom HC was applied directly on the dirt basement floor. Bio-nutrients were also added. Custom Results: The following averages were obtained after six weeks of treatment. Hydrocarbon Testing Site 1 Before –  3500 ppm TPH After – 63 ppm TPH Hydrocarbon Testing Site 2  Before  – 9800 ppm TPH After – ND (non-detectable) As of the date this case study, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources (PA...

Bioremediation of Produced Water FAQ’s

Bioremediation of Produced Water – Frequently Asked Questions. What are the general characteristics of produced water? Produced waters that are formed from gas production tend to have high concentrations of aromatic hydrocarbons, specifically the BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, and xylene) compounds. Produced water also contains the chemicals used for gas processing such as; sulfide removal chemicals, dehydration chemicals, hydrogen sulfide reducing chemicals, and chemicals that inhibit hydrates. Produced water contains free product hydrocarbons, and a number of dissolved and dispersed compounds. Generally, produced water is placed into a holding pond. What is bioremediation of produced water? Bioremediation of produced water is the use of bacteria to metabolize the hydrocarbons and other petroleum compounds associated with produced water. What are the major problems associated with produced water? Generally, produced water is first treated to remove as much free product hydrocarbons as possible. While the goal is to reduce TRPH to below 100ppm, most treated produced water contains 300-400 ppm TRPH. Additionally, produced water contains saturation concentrations for any hydrocarbons present. These hydrocarbons can’t be removed by physical methods. Treating these remaining hydrocarbons is the major problem with produced water. Also, as the produced water begins to evaporate, a number of problems develop. The hydrocarbons in the produced water begin to...

The Bioremediation Waste Water Case Study in London

The Bioremediation of Waste Water – A Case Study in London This wastewater case study is a little more involved than most of the information we have. It involves the initial assessment of the use of F-TREAT in bioremediation of waste water. Specifically, the removal of Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOGs) and other organic wastes from the sewer lines in London, England and prepared for the Thames Water Utilities, LTD.   The Piccadilly Line BioTreatment The bioremediation treatment on the Piccadilly Branch Sewer was the second such treatment by the Thames Water Utility using F-TREAT and was carried out as a result of successful tests achieved from a similar biotreatment on the sewer in the Parliament Street area. The bioremediation strategy was planned after careful evaluation of all of the site conditions Dose rates were calculated on the length of the sewer to be treated and the extent of accumulation of fats and other solids. The length of the sewer  to be bioremediated covered approximately one kilometer and is estimated to have contained about 250 tons of FOGs and other organic solids. Sewage flow through this section of sewer was stopped for 6 of the 7.5 weeks of the F-TREAT treatment, a small input from local residences was inevitable....

Custom GT Grease Trap Treatment – a Case Study

Custom GT Grease Trap Treatment – a Case Study This is a case study about the use of Custom GT Tabs in a restaurant grease trap. Custom GT Tabs are a biological grease trap treatment designed to reduce pump outs, reduce odors, and reduce maintenance of restaurant and food service grease traps. Custom Gt Tabs contain billions of beneficial grease trap bacteria. These bacteria have been specifically selected because of their enhanced ability to metabolize the fats, oils and grease (ReduceFOG) that accumulate in restaurant grease traps. Custom GT Tabs are a grease trap treatment manufacture by Custom Biologicals. Grease Trap Treatment Case Study Client Category: Restaurant Grease Trap – A potential client wanted to determine the effectiveness of Custom GT-Tabs versus the product that they were currently using. Location: A restaurant in Pennsylvania, USA Physical Plant: A single 1000 gallon greasetrap Problem: High BOD Grease accumulation, Bad odors Previous Treatment: Prior to treatment, a competitors product was used. BOD, Grease and odors were reduced but not reduced under the surcharge limit. Custom Treatment: Custom GT-Tabs, a grease trap treatment product, were applied directly into the greasetrap at a rate of 1 GT Tab every 2 weeks. Custom Results: The trap was not pumped during the testing period. BOD was significantly reduced to within acceptable parameters....

Microbes in Sewage Treatment – A Case Study

Microbes in Sewage Treatment Here’s a case study about microbes in sewage treatment, specifically the use of a bacterial product to reduce grease and odor at a municipal lift station. As most professional that maintain lift stations know, grease and odor are the number one and number two lift station problems. This case study talks about odor complaints from residents and grease accumulation requiring constatnt lift station pumping. For both situations, the lift station maintenance product, by Custom Biologicals was used. The lift station maintenance product is a microbial product designed to reduce grease, reduce odors, and reduce maintenance problems at lift stations. The lift station maintenance product makes a great case study about the use of microbes in sewage treatment. The lift station maintenance product contains F-TREAT Tabs, Tab Towers, and Shock Treatment Bacteria. Case Study – Microbes in Sewage Treatment Client Category: Municipal Lift Station Location: South Eastern United States Physical Plant: Two Average-High Municipal Life Stations, both located in residential areas. Both lift stations had odor and grease problems. Problem: Both lift stations had odor and grease problems. The city received numerous complaints due to odor from the Lift Stations from very near-by residents. Grease accumulation required frequent pumping. Rising costs for grease disposal made pumping less cost effective than in...
