What is the best way to clean up oil spills after they occur? Nature has this down to a science. Wherever there is a natural oil seepage on the earth, nature has placed oil degrading microorganisms (microbes) into that environment. Nature is able to clean up after itself, but it takes time. It’s a slow, natural healing process — nature’s own pollution control. The problem is that mankind now puts far more hydrocarbon pollution into the environment than nature can quickly remove. Delta Remediation has a naturally amplified process of speeding the natural process of oil degradation. By adding BioLogix Microbes to a contaminated environment, we can speed up the rate of natural degradation and help the bio-remediation process occur in days and weeks rather than months or years.
The BioLogix Microbes are shipped dormant in a bentonite-clay based carrier. When the carrier dissolves in water, the microbes become activated and water may become temporarily murky due to the infusion of the clay. This is to be expected.
BioLogix Microbes are a consortium of three different types of microbes that are cultivated from rugged environments such as undersea vents or sites where there is volcanic activity. They are then bred and naturally enhanced in sea water and ammonia using sweet Texas crude oil as their only food source. 100% Natural. The result is 100% natural, hardy and fast-acting Microbes that have an affinity for oil and other hydrocarbons, as well as organic waste. This specific consortium of Microbes (BioLogix Archaea Microbes) has not been genetically altered or engineered. These naturally occurring microbes have been on the DSL (Canada) and US EPA National Contingency List since its inception.
