  • Bioremediation of an Oil Spill

    Bioremediation is the method of choice to effectively clean up a small spill of hydrocarbons. In this case, five-hundred liters of BTEX has spilled from an above ground storage tank into a pasture that is located at the west edge of the Royal Roads University (RRU) grounds. The soil is classified as a Gleyed Eutric Brunisol based on recent laboratory analysis; it contains clay, but is fairly ...


  • Bioremediation of DNAPL

    Dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) are mixtures of organic compounds that when combined have a specific density greater than water, which has a specific density of 1.00. They sink through water and form a separate liquid phase below the water. DNAPL mixtures can include compounds such as chlorinated solvents, PCB oils, coal tars, and creosotes (complex mixtures consisting of polycyclic ...

  • Bioremediation of diesel spill - cumbria, united kingdom

    Introduction Microbac has successful undertaken the clean up of a diesel spill at a site in Cumbria. The oil escaped from a large storage tank, located at the top of an incline after a problem occurred with closure of the valve. The position of the spill resulted in oil running down the incline and into the site drainage system. In response to the client"s request, Microbac ...

  • The Bioremediation Process

    Bioremediation allows natural processes to clean up harmful chemicals in the environment. Microscopic 'bugs' or microbes that live in soil and groundwater like to eat certain harmful chemicals, such as those found in gasoline and oil spills. When microbes completely digest these chemicals, they change them into water and harmless gases such as carbon dioxide. In order for microbes to clean up ...


  • Bioremediation Of Highway Spills On Sites With Shallow Underground Utility Lines

    Highway spills involving saddle tanks of trucks are fairly common and in such cases almost 104 gallons of diesel are released in the environment. Although excavation is a preferred method, bioremediation using AgroRemed is considered another option in many situations like this one in West Virginia where the underlying cables were likely to be damaged. At the end of bioremediation, the values of ...

  • Biodispersion Technology: A Fast-Acting Bioremediation option For Basement Heating Oil Spills

    An environment company was contracted by heating oil company and the insurance company for cleanup of heating oil released in the basement of a home owner in Pennsylvania. The concrete surface was cut open after mopping the free product to reveal underlying soil heavily stained with home heating oil producing strong odors of heating oil. The environment company requested for VaporRemed on a next ...

  • Bioremediation With The Activated Peat Moss Product In A Savanna Soil Affected By Spilled Petroleum

    The preservation of environment is fundamental in order to get a self sustainable development, by keeping a harmonic relationship between oil exploration and environmental equilibrium. This is a necessary condition in order to share the oil production with other economic activities like agriculture and cattle production. In reality, the oil production is the most important factor in the national ...

  • Bioremediation of fuel oil spill at a coastal naval air station in the united kingdom

    Introduction Approximately 1000 gallons of fuel oil had seeped from broken storage tank lines into the soil matrix beneath a boiler house. Oil was subsequently forced from beneath the boiler building by periodic heavy rainfall. The fuel oil migrated down a slope into a farmer"s field causing extensive damage to the vegetation and grazing area inhabited by sheep. ...

  • Types of bioremediation and their modes of action

    An Urgent Call for Change in U.S. Oil Spill Response With Bioremediation Agent Type EA* bearing out as a workable first response alternative to the use of chemical dispersants, contrasting evidence has become even clearer that dispersant use has been a huge failure. Dispersants have proven to be an inadequate response method with more and more studies showing an ...

  • Spill Cleanup of Fuel Contaminated Soils After Roadway Accidents Using In Situ Bioremediation

    Two case studies are presented in this paper, one study demonstrating revitalization of roadside vegetation through bioremediation after a spill of motor oil and in another case application of AgroRemed to sites affected by diesel spill with underlying utility cables. The TPH of the soil after bioremediation was reduced by more than 95% from 65,000 ppm in the first case while in the second case, ...

  • How to: Bioremediate chlorinated solvents without accumulating metabolites

    Chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOCs)such as tetrachloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethylene(TCE), commonly used as dry cleaningsolvents and degreasers, pose an ongoing threatto human health and wildlife when spilled intogroundwater. Through the injection of bioremediation productsinto the impacted groundwater, the chlorine atoms can be removedfrom these compounds in situ. However, ...


  • Xylene Spill in Northern Georgia

    Groundwater Bioremediation of a Railroad Xylene Spill: Northern Georgia A spill of approximately 50,000 gallons of pure xylene occurred as a result of a train derailment in north central Georgia in 1988.  The spill resulted in two seperate xylene plumes in the groundwater.  Heterogeneous layers of interbedded sands, silts and silty clays undertie the site.  Most of the site can be ...

  • On Site Bioremediation Of Oily Ballast Waters Of Ships and Tankers

    A poster presentation was made at the International Ballast Water symposium held in London, UK Paper discusses application of bioremediation products for ship board remediation of oily ballast water on ships and tankers and presents some case studies on bioremediation of industrial oily waste. Abstract Discharge of oily wasie ballast waier is a perpetual problem for most types of ...

  • Bioremediation of Nitrochlorobenzene, Nitroaniline, Chloroaniline, and Other Organics in Groundwater.

    ABSTRACT: The uppermost aquifer beneath a chemical plant contains residual concentrations of o-nitrochlorobenzene from a tank car spill, as well as other plant-related organic compounds of concern (COC), including 2-nitroaniline and o-chloroaniline. The aquifer consists of low permeability clays and silts, and produces only a few gallons of groundwater per day from a shallow ...

  • Hydrocarbon Removal Using Bioremediation with Porous Paving and Bio-swales

    Hydrocarbon Problem Asphalt paving and emissions from vehicles generate an ongoing source of light hydrocarbon emissions, which can include numerous “anes” and “enes” along with aromatic hydrocarbons (the bulk of which evaporate into the atmosphere when spilled). Most of these materials can be toxic, and are regulated by concentration amounts contained within ...
