Diesel Spill Kit

Announcing the Diesel Spill Kit Announcing the Diesel Spill Kit – by Custom Biologicals.  Sometimes diesel spills happen and booms, absorbents, and physical cleanup isn’t enough. You know there is still diesel there – what can you do? This is exactly the situation that the diesel spill kit is designed for. The small spill kit contains Custom HC, bioremediation bacteria. Custom HC contains all natural, safe, bioremediation bacteria. These bacteria, sometimes called microbes, have been specifically selected based on their safety and on their enhanced ability to metabolize (eat) petroleum products such a oil, diesel, and gasoline. The Diesel Spill Kit is all you need to clean up your small spill. Buy the Small Spill Kit Here. Enough Custom HC to treat 5 cubic meters or 25 square meters.   Price: $99.00 Quantity:   Custom HC™ is a concentrated blend of hydrocarbon degrading bacteria.   Custom HC™ is in stock, ready to ship overnight to you now.   CustomBio Diesel Spill Kit includes the nutrients you need to make the bacteria effective.  Have an urgent request and need help NOW?

Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) and Bacteria

Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) and Bacteria   It is well known that wastewater and sewage has a very high potential to produce nasty odors such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S, ammonia, indoles, skatoles and mercaptans. Of these hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is arguably the most import mainly due to         toxicity, its ability to corrode materials, and it is the major source of odor problems at wastewater treatment facilities, manholes, and lift stations. The conditions leading to hydrogen sulfide formation favor the production of other odiferous organic compounds. So solving an H2S odor problem can often solve other wastewater odor problems as well. Sources of Hydrogen Sulfide in Wastewater   Sulfur is present in both human and livestock solid wastes and sulfates are found in most water supplies. Almost all wastewater has a sufficient amount of sulfur for both anaerobic bacteria and facultative bacteria to produce hydrogen sulfide. Generally, these bacteria produce H2S as a byproduct of their metabolism. By a process called anaerobic respiration, anaerobic bacteria oxidize organic compounds while reducing sulfate (SO4) to hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Interestingly, sulfate reducing bacteria are considered one of the oldest forms of life on earth. They are some 3.5 billion years old. Hydrogen Sulfide Production Rate The rate that anaerobic bacteria produce...

Why Aeration Alone Won’t Make My Lagoon Odor Go Way?

Why Aeration Alone Won’t Make My Lagoon Odor Go Way? Here’s the situation. You have just purchased, or recommended, the company purchase, an expensive aeration system to take care of your lagoon odor problems. After all, the salesman said it would work. He explained that aerobic bacteria don’t create those nasty H2S odors, anaerobic bacteria do. So by simply adding aeration, you’ll change the environment in the lagoon. And Presto – Rotten Egg Odor Gone. No more neighbors complaining about lagoon odor. So you spend the money, install the aeration system and turn it on. Unfortunately, the odor problem doesn’t go away. IT GETS WORSE! An Overwhelming stench of hydrogen sulfide fills the air and your nostrils. The installer says not to worry, it will get better over time. So what just happened? Why didn’t the lagoon odor go away with aeration? First, we’ll need to talk about the microenvironmental situation in  the lagoon. In a typical wastewater lagoon, the wastewater stratifies. In other words, some of the water floats and some sinks. Because of this, only the top layer of the wastewater lagoon receives oxygen. As a consequence, obligate anaerobes ( bacteria that cannot survive in the presence of oxygen) proliferate in the lagoon. Obligate anaerobes (bacteria that...

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...

Custom HC Tabs Bioremediation Bacteria

Custom HC Tabs Bioremediation Bacteria Biological Hydrocarbon and Petroleum Digestant Custom HC Tabs are the easiest solution to Oil/Water separator maintenance. No Measuring! No Mixing! No Pumps! Simply drop Custom HC Tabs into the separator to help reduce TPH, BTEX, hydrocarbons, oil, and more. Custom HC Tabs contain a highly concentrated blend of naturally occurring, petrophilic (oil loving), bacteria that actually digest hydrocarbons and petroleum products that would normally accumulate inside the oil water separator, laundry wastewater, or car wash recycle water. These bioremediation bacteria have been selected because of their safety and their enhanced ability to metabolize hydrocarbons and petroleum products. Custom HC Tabs’ slow release formula continuously releases bacteria for maximum effectiveness without the need for expensive pumps. Now, you can use the latest technology, bioremediation bacteria, to solve your oil water separator and car wash odor problems.
