Bioremediation Products of Custom Biologicals
Custom Biologicals, Inc. produces bioremediation products formulated to degrade petroleum hydrocarbons, dry cleaning fluids, chlorinated solvents, and other hazardous environmental contaminants in both soil and water applications.
Bioremediation – a Simple Explanation
Bioremediation is the process of using bacteria, fungi, or other organisms to degrade pollutants and return the environment
altered by contaminants to its original condition.
Bioremediation Products – Custom HC™
Custom HC is our most popular bioremediation product. Custom HC is a highly concentrated blend of bacteria, scientifically chosen for their ability to degrade a wide variety of petroleum hydrocarbons, including crude oil, fuel oil, gasoline, diesel, BTEX, and others.
Custom HC™ degrades a variety of hydrocarbons including:
- • Gasoline • Diesel Fuel • Heating Oil • Motor Oil
- • BTEX • Benzene • Toluene • Xylene
- • Ethyl benzene • TPH • Cutting Oil • Acetone
- • Glycols • Napthalene • Solvents • Kerosene
- • Anti-Freeze • Crude Oil • Trichlorethylene • Grease
- • Aromatics • Pesticides • Herbicides • Many Others!
CustomBio has the production capability to offer both bacteria based, and fungus based products in a variety of packaging options including Technical Concentrates, Concentrates, Slow Release Tablets, Ready-to-Use (RTU), and Small Spill Kits.
Bioaugmentation vs Bioremediation
Bioremediation is the process of using bacteria, fungi, or other organisms to degrade pollutants and return the environment altered by contaminants to its original condition. In some cases, the indigenous bacteria are petrophilic (capable of degrading hydrocarbons).
In these applications, nutrients alone are applied to complete bioremediation successfully. In some cases, the indigenous bacteria population capable of degrading hydrocarbons is non-existent, or is so small that they cannot compete for nutrients, so they cannot grow to populations large enough to degrade the pollutants.
In other cases, the petrophilic organisms are present in the lab test, but they are organisms that degrade hydrocarbons inefficiently.
BioAugmentation is bioremediation with the application of laboratory grown organisms to augment the populations of bacteria that can degrade oil. Custom HC contains petrophilic bacteria, scientifically chosen for their ability to effectively degrade hydrocarbons, packaged in extremely high concentrations.
BioAugmentation with Custom HC will:
- increase total petrophilic bacteria counts
- increase effective petrophilic populations
- decrease cleanup time (and time is money)
- decrease nutrient costs (compared to bioremediation without Custom HC)
- decrease manpower and equipment costs, because clean up is faster with Custom HC!
There are many variables, or controlling factors, in Bioremediation, including BioAugmentation with Custom HC. The main factors are Bacteria Populations, Growth Media, and Nutrients. After reviewing the information below, Please review the Technical Discussion.
