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...

FAQ’s about Bioaugmentation of Wastewater

FAQ’s about Bioaugmentation of Wastewater Frequently asked questions about the bioaugmentation of wastewater. Q. What is bioaugmentation? A. Bioaugmentation is simply the addition of specifically selected microorganisms (mainly bacteria) to wastewater. When properly implemented bioaugmentation of wastewater will improve the performance of the plant. Q. I’ve heard about using “bugs” and bioremediation but isn’t that just snake oil? A. In the past, there were a lot of snake oil salesman peddling magic bacteria that could do wonderful things at treatment plant. Bioaugmentation companies had a reputation worse than that of a sleezy lawyer. The myth continue because treatment plant operators normally have a background in engineering, not biology. The wastewater engineers found very little math to evaluate wastewater treatment bacteria. So instead of bioaugmentation, most industrial and municipal wastewater treatment plants used polymers and chemicals to treat their wastewater problems. Q. So what can bacteria and bioaugmentation really do? A. First, its important to remember that bacteria are alive. They have certain nutrient requirement that they need to live, grow, and reproduce. Here’s a quick list of the most important parameters: Dissolved Oxygen – Greater than .5mg/L Temperature – 50-95 degrees F. pH 6-9 Ammonia 1-3 mg/L Phosphate .5-2 mg/L Yes, a wastewater treatment plant can operate out side...
