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...

What are Microbial Products?

 What are Microbial Products? There are a number of products on the market that claim to be microbial products. So what are microbial products and how to they work? In the simplest terms, microbial products are composed of beneficial bacteria that are used to naturally, break down a waste product, environmental contaminant, or other complex organic compound. Typically, microbial products are used to clean fats, oils, and grease (FOG), to clean oil spills (as in bioremediation) or in agriculture to help provide nutrients to plants. Microbial products are effective in soil, water, and groundwater applications.   List of Microbial Products by Custom Biologicals   Beneficial bacteria, like all bacteria, work by producing substrate specific enzymes. Bacteria have the ability in their genetic material, to produce a wide variety of enzymes such as lipases (break down fats) and proteases (breaks down proteins). Bacteria are so efficient at producing enzymes that they are sometimes thought of as enzyme factories. These enzymes quickly solubilize various organic waste products making the waste available to the bacteria as a food source. The end product if this digestion is primarily more bacteria, carbon dioxide and water. Microbial products have a wide variety of uses including: Bioremediation – cleaning of petroleum and oil spills Wastewater Treatment...
