Soil & Water Contamination Remediant Series

Sustainable's soil and water remediant products provide non-hazardous onsite/in-situ contamination remediation and/or microbial bio-remediation; Our products include both powders and liquids to restore the environment.

* Check the list of Technologies on the Solutions and Technologies page for a complete list.  


Below is a summary of three Remediation Technologies Series-  Green Earth Bio-Remediant™  Blue Waters Bio-Remediant Gold EnviroRemediant™.


Green Earth Bio-Remediant – Powder soil Microbial Bio-Remediant

Shallow Soil Formula: Specially formulated bio-remedial agent for hydrocarbon contamination in soil and is effective down to about 36" deep.

In/Ex Soil Formula: This is our finest professional product for the in-situ and ex-situ bioremediation of hydrocarbon contaminated soil. This formula was developed to specifically degrade light and heavy oil fractions.

General Use: Our general use of this professional product is for the bio-remediation of soil and ground water hydrocarbon contamination.


Blue Waters Bio-Remediant – Liquid water Microbial Bio-Remediant

Soil & Water Remediation Formula: This product will solve water and soil hydrocarbon contamination problems. It will bio-remediate most hydrocarbons in deep water or soil with a minimum amount of equipment, labor, and cost.

Water Remediation Formula: A professional product for in-sit bio-remediation of hydrocarbon contaminated oily water, groundwater plumes and industrial wastewater, ponds, and lagoons.

Gold EnviroRemediant

Gold EnviroRemediant™ is a process using a patent pending blend of natural nutrients, hyper-wetting agents, surfactants, and emulsifying agents in a homogeneous active colloidal solution (detergent) that degrades organics in the water phase. Gold liquid remediation formula is derived from our non-toxic, water-based, EPA approved Saf-Ron Gold Dispersant and is applied through specialized injection equipment.   

It is an effective water based compound that safely treats and rapidly degrades all hazardous and non-hazardous organics including:

  • Petroleum products - oil, & sludge
  • Chlorinated Industrial solvents
  • Gas and diesel fuel in soil, water, sediment
  • Dry cleaning solvents, (PCE,DCE,VC)
  • VOC’s (MTBE, BTEX)
  • PCBs, dioxins (TCDD), furans
  • Pesticides, herbicides, insecticides (DDT,DDE,Toxaphene)

It breaks the organics into suspended particles that repeal each other by changing and cleaving the chemical bonds and structure of the organic molecules. Contaminants lose their geochemical properties and toxicity and become water soluble; then they are oxidized, resulting in a mixture of dissolved oxygen, carbon dioxide and very low trace amounts of nitrates.


Applications

This proven technology has been used in soils contaminated with hazardous and non-hazardous organics. Some EPA approved methods include:

  • Soil Flushing/Washing
  • In-situ Chemical Treatment
  • Hydraulic Containment
  • Enhanced Bioremediation in-situ
  • Treatment of Contact Waters

Total System Benefits

  • Reduces time and expenses    (typically 20%-50% over competitors) 
  • Minimizes and limits most liability  (to the owner/client (no transport) 
  • Eliminates waste   (permanently leaving environment safe) 
  • Non-disturbing   (working area or the ecosystem) 
  • No threat to environment   (non-toxic to plants, animals, humans) 
  • Requires no OSHA certifications

*Our technology cost 50-75% less and remediates in 25-50% less time then competing technologies. Compare below.

Note: *Costs shown only reflect average type of contamination levels since extreme high and low contaminant levels can greatly alter the costs and time of projects. Also, "average" contaminant levels also imply NO free floating product in any of the contaminated wells.
