TerraStryke TPHENHANCED Residual Source Mass Remediation - Mineral Oil Bioremediation Demonstration, Midwest Utility Company - Case Study
TerraStryke Products LLC (TerraStryke) develop and distribute biostimulation additives proven to cost-effectively maximize the destruction of dissolved phase, sorbed and/or residual source mass contaminants by native microbial consortiums, harnessing 4-billion years of Mother Nature’s experience, allowing microbial communities to work collectively, effectively increasing performance by increasing the bulk fraction of degraders.
TPHenhanced, our patent-pending nutrient formulation proven to enhance existing microbes' ability to produce natural surfactants and 'wash' residual contaminants from saturated soils while enhancing the destruction of dissolved-phase contaminants and eliminate rebound. The nutrient-enhanced microbes adapt to available energy sources and establish subsurface conditions that expedite the degradation of the entire range of total petroleum hydrocarbons.
Site: Consultant established field study plot consisting of 100sf each with assumed 5ft vertical. Each plot was dosed with various amendments, one being TPHenhanced. Each test area was dosed with 100,000 ug/L mixture of water, mineral oil, diesel and gasoline; typical contaminants associated with utility service facilities.
