Archaea are the thought to be the earth's most ancient lifeforms and are classified as a separate domain at the top of the tree of life. They are noted for their hardiness, and are able to tolerate extreme conditions of temperature, pH, salinity, etc.
The microbe consortium employed by MicroSorb consists of aerobic, anaerobic and facultative anaerobic species of archaea which provide the necessary remediation activity required for the often harsh conditions of treatment environments.
It is the carefully chosen make-up of the consortium which assures the success of the bioremediation. One species breaks a specific hydrocarbon bond while other species are ready to work on the remaining bonds, completing contaminant degradation to environmentally benign components of carbon, carbon dioxide, fatty acids and water. The MicroSorb microbes also are cometabolizers, degrading contaminants while oxidizing or reducing other compounds for energy and carbon. This cometabolic activity therefore provides the continuous energy for the microbes to keep working at clearing the hydrogen bonds, even at very low contaminant concentrations, until the contaminant levels are non-detectible.
Once the hydrocarbons are degraded, the food source is cut off and the microbes die off and become a food source themselves for aquatic and terrestrial organisms - completing the circle of life.
