ORC Advanced® Pellets (ORC-A Pellets) are a pelletized version of REGENESIS' widely used ORC Advanced and are designed specifically for direct application into excavations, tank pits and trenches. This pelletized, dry application material minimizes airborne dust while eliminating the need for specialized equipment and spray water required for powder-slurry applications. ORC Advanced Pellets are approximately 3-10 mm in size.
The primary function of ORC-A Pellets is to provide a controlled-release oxygen source for the enhanced aerobic bioremediation of petroleum hydrocarbons or other aerobically degradable compounds. This is achieved through the use of patented processes which embed phosphates into the crystalline structure of solid per oxygen molecules. This feature slows the reaction that releases oxygen upon hydration, producing an optimized, controlled-release of oxygen over a period of up to 12 months. ORC-A Pellets deliver up to 17% active oxygen by weight and contain micro-nutrients such as: nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium (N,P,K) which may be beneficial to aerobic biodegradation processes.
