Advanced biotechnology solutions for land reclamation sector - Soil and Groundwater - Site Remediation
MicroMix - A smarter approach for bioremediation & odor control. Rapid On-Site Remediation of soil and media contaminated with petrochemical, and hydrocarbons is the most cost effective means of dealing with contamination. Micronomix USA has developed a simple yet highly effective in-situ remediation technology that helps companies deal efficiently with contaminated soils and/or oil spills. Upon application, MicroMix Aqua immediately starts to attack the hydrocarbons and converts them into humus thereby eliminating the need for expensive excavation, relocation and disposal of the waste elements. Once the process of conversion is complete, the hydrocarbon waste is converted into an organic fertilizer, rich in nutrients and minerals that are available for new plant growth and animal life.
Historically, conventional techniques employed in remediation, is to dig up the contaminated soil and send it to a landfill, or to cap the contaminated areas - these methods have many drawbacks. The conventional techniques simply moves the contamination elsewhere. Not only is this process hazardous it is laborious, time consuming and expensive. Further more, it is an unsustainable activity since designated landfill space is limited and increasingly costly in the US.
The cap-and-contain methods are only an interim solution since the contamination remains on site, with mandated monitoring and maintenance of the isolation barriers. This method is expensive and exposes owners to an inherent liability for future infractions and fines. With Micronomix USA bio-remediation products you will effectively transform the contaminated area to its natural state.
Our goal at Micronomix USA is to completely eliminate all the pollutants if possible, or at the very least transform them well below the permissible levels.
Some of the conventional methods of bio-remediation, while effective in the short term are not normally economical or environmentally friendly in the long run. These technologies are either dependent on chemicals or high-temperature incineration fraught with technical complexity. Smaller incineration are costly, creating toxic emissions with no pulic acceptance.
MicroMix Aqua was developed to counter some of the limitations of conventional on-site remediation. As a 100% organic uid oil remediator it is able to be utilized on-site even in the most sensitive ecosystems. It's natural ingredients are derived from glucides and essential amino acids which form powerful decomposing agents that stimulate the natural predisposition of certain bacteria to produce enzymes capable of breaking down the hydrocarbons in organic matter. The hydrocarbons are thereby transformed into bacterial proteins that form a biological mud and a mixture of soluble fatty acids. This nal product is completely environmentally friendly that favors the development of beneficial organisms and microbes This process is fast, cost effective and in most cases enables the re-use of the treated soil while providing adequate protection for human health and the environment.
The immediate evidence of mitigation is exhibited in sharp declines in Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon (TPH) levels in the treated areas. Results are achieved in a fraction of the time and expenses normally required for soil excavation, relocation, disposal, incineration, or traditional bioremediation methods. The long-term benet from using Micronomix USA products is that they facilitate biodegradation by natural means.
