PermeOx Ultra - Engineered Calcium Peroxide
PermeOx Ultra, the evolution PermeOx Plus, is a specially formulated grade of engineered calcium peroxide providing extended oxygen release for enhanced aerobic bioremediation.
Studies have shown that PermeOx Ultra releases more oxygen into the subsurface environment over extended periods as compared to other soil remediation products. PermeOx Ultra can continually release oxygen for over 350 days, thus providing a useful and cost-effective tool for enhancing the aerobic bioremediation of petroleum hydrocarbons and some non-halogenated organics.
PermeOx Ultra is formulated to contain at least 18% Available Oxygen (AO), a measure of how much oxygen is available to be released. This compares favorably to the AO levels found in typical calcium peroxide and magnesium peroxide based oxygen release products that are subject to lock up/encapsulation. This means that on a pound to pound basis, PermeOx Ultra is able to deliver more oxygen.
- Microbes use organic carbon (COC/COI) and oxygen as a terminal electron acceptor
- Contains >18% Active Oxygen, which is higher than other grades of calcium peroxide
- Releases oxygen for up to one year, which is the longest oxygen release profile of similar products in the market
Aerobic Bioremediation technologies are used to accelerate the degradation rate of petroleum hydrocarbons and some fuel oxygenates through natural biological processes. By adding oxygen to the subsurface through pure oxygen injection, use of oxygen releasing compounds, hydrogen peroxide infiltration or ozone injection, the oxygen becomes available to aerobic microorganisms in the unsaturated zone, saturated zone or both. The process helps to facilitate the conversion of biodegradable compounds to CO2 and H2O. This technology can be used to effectively reduce contaminants from oil, petroleum, gasoline, solvents and pesticides, among others.
