MicroSorb's archaea beneficial microbes break down hydrocarbons at the molecular level, eliminating a variety of organic contaminants as well as directly eliminating the odors that go along with them. Our application methods are non-invasive, which is especially important for sensitive habitats including wetlands, marshes and conservation land. Examples of areas where we work include:
Municipal Sewage Treatment Bioremediation: Odor control, process efficiency, maintenance costs, system wear and corrosion all are improved significantly by use of the archaea-formula. Used in lift stations, aeration tanks and/or anaerobic digesters, the product is demonstrated to minimize stoppages and improve both plant capacity and effectiveness of wastewater treatment. Without the archaea, grease and oils attract and retain grit and abrasive particles, severely impacting equipment life and maintenance downtime. Use of the archaea product saves money by eliminating the need for clean-outs and pump outs by metabolizing F.O.G., as well as minimizing hydrogen sulphide build-up.
Septic Tanks/Systems: The archaea beneficial microbes will yield similar results as with the municipal waste water treatment facility when used in septic tanks and on-site sewage systems.
Industrial Waste Water Treatment Bioremediation: Similar to municipal waste water, industrial waste water containing organic contaminants can be treated successfully with the archaea microbe consortium before releasing the effluent into receiving waters, controlling odors and metabolizing pollutants.
Bioremediation Open Water Bodies: (Lakes, Lagoons, Rivers, etc.): The archaea microbe consortium can be applied to open waters to consume contaminants in the case of spills, fecal contamination, dirty dumping, etc. In addition, the consortium acts as ‘probiotics for the earth’, correcting imbalances in ecosystems which cause aquatic life to die. The beneficial archaea microbes out-compete the problematic species for oxygen and food. Pathogenic bacteria like e coli and fecal coliform levels are reduced or eliminated. Balance is restored and native life is able to once again flourish.
Algae: The University of Massachusetts at Amherst independently tested the archaea microbe consortium on a cranberry cultivation farm that was overgrown with algae and found that the archaea successfully removed excess phosphorus and nitrogen and significantly improved water quality. Similar results have been obtained in coastal fish ponds and golf course ponds, and in large scale field studies on commercial cranberry reservoirs and irrigation ponds.
Bioremediation of Oil Spills (Water and Ground Based): Oil exploration, storage, transportion, refining, and distribution all come with the risk of spills. Oil spills both on land and water are a common and immensely destructive occurrence across the globe. The archaea microbe consortium has been tested by Louisiana State University and found to be the most effective bioremediation agent for oil spills. It is the only known agent to significantly reduce the especially pervasive and toxic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).
Bilge and Ballast Water Bioremediation and Marine Applications: The archaea microbe consortium is used in marine environments (fueling stations, bilges, ballasts and docks) to treat fuel and engine oil spills and odors emanating from these environments, as well as for bioremediation of holding tanks for sewage onboard.
Animal Habitats Bioremediation (Zoos, Farming, Equestrian, etc.): The archaea microbes digest animal feces, cutting off the food supply for harmful coliform bacteria. Additionally the archaea digest the ammonia buildup from urine in flooring and bedding resulting in odor elimination and sanitation. The archaea consortium replaces harsh chemical cleaners which can have a negative impact on the health of the animals.
Bioremediation of Agriculture Waste and Runoff and Soil Bioremediation Treatment: The use of the MicroSorb microbe consortium results in by-products that are rich, life-sustaining nutrients such as carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and hydrogen. Regular use of conventional fertilizers and chemicals in farming leaves the soil starved of nutrients, and leads to reduced output and increased input costs. The archaea enhance and restore the bounty of the soil and significantly improve fertility and yields. The beneficial microbes also are used to bioremediate waste streams and excess nutrient runoff, facilitating regulatory compliance as well as restoring soil and water quality.
MicroSorb provides the best performing bioremediation product on the EPA’s National Contingency Plan Product Schedule (NCPPS), and an engineering team with decades of application experience and success.
