Organic HTP Bacteria
- Deep Cleans Soils
- Enhances Natural Processes
- Eliminates Unsightly Areas
- Reduces Pollution Liability
- Lowers Disposal Costs
HTP bacteria are specially formulated and packaged for use in remediating hydrocarbons and other organics in soil. To assure optimal performance of these organisms under the toughest conditions, they are produced and blended together with "high potency" nutrients and stimulants. HTP contains organisms that will degrade a wide range of hydrocarbons including gasoline, diesel, crude oil, benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, and xylene.
There is not a standard protocol for bioremediation of contaminated soils. However, there are several guidelines which should be followed to obtain the optimum degradation rates of the organic contaminants. Bioremediation of contaminated soils may take place in a lined treatment cell so that the runoff resulting from the degradation of the wastes can be collected. Typically the soil is treated in lifts of 8 to 12 inches to allow maximum oxygen transfer through the soil for the microorganisms. This transfer is usually accomplished by tilling and provides for the essential intimate contact needed between the bacterial cultures and the organic contaminates. Soil pH, nutrient levels, oxygen availability, and moisture content are critical to the success of bioremediation. Of course, all of the requirements will vary depending on the soil, weather conditions (humidity, temperature, rainfall amounts), indigenous microbial population, contaminates involved, the concentration of those contaminates, and the amount of time allowed for cleaning up the site.
Direct Injection of HTP bacteria and nutrient solutions can be used for in site treatment. This method is site specific and an experienced contractor should be consulted.
Case History 823
Oily Waste Disposal
The data shows that the total pounds of oil on the land farm has gradually increased from October 1983 through to March 1988. Our products were added one month later, April 1988. The graph shows that despite adverse conditions, including a dry and hot summer, the land farm degraded almost ten times the oil it had in previous years using our products.
Case History 952
Oil Contaminated Soil
Our product was cultured and propagated on site and the resulting batch solution was placed into a contaminate plume via a monitoring well. Routine PID readings for degradation components were monitored and recorded. Bioremediation began on January 23, 1991 and nondetect readings were obtained on March 20, 1991.
Form: Free-flowing granular powder
Specific Gravity: 0.5 - 0.7
Nutrient Content: Biological nutrients & stimulants
Plate Count: 5 billion per gram
Packaging: 4, 8 & 16 oz. water soluble packages protected by a resealable overwrap. 25 lbs. per plastic pail.
Storage: DO NOT FREEZE! Store in a cool dry location. Do not inhale dusts, avoid excessive skin contact. SEE M.S.D.S.
Application Instructions: To clean up small areas contaminated with petroleum oils, use HTP at the rate of one pound per one hundred square feet of contaminated soil. Rake or till the soil. Maintain the area as if growing a lawn and repeat application as necessary. For deeper contaminated sites, use 100 lbs. per 1500 cubic yards of soil. Repeated applications may be needed for heavily contaminated soil. HTP can be applied to the soil with any appropriate fertilizer or seed spreading equipment. Dry or wet application can be used. For direct injection applications the products should be mixed with clean warm water for a minimum of two hours before injection. Use in accordance with all Federal and State regulations. Results will depend upon soil types and climate conditions.
