Case Studies

(Available on request)


  • Eliminates odors and remediates contamination at the molecular level, leaving clean water and clean soil.

  • STPs (sewage treatment plants) and upstream infrastructure run more
    cost-effectively and efficiently. Odor complaints, stoppages and lift station failures are minimized, as are hydrogen sulfide and the corrosive compounds like sulfuric acid that deteriorate pipes and equipment. Maintenance costs, chemical use, and electricity use all go down.

  • Wetlands, wildlife areas, beaches, mangroves, coral reef and coastal areas, and even areas heavily used by people now can be treated for contamination naturally, without disturbing sensitive areas by burning, excavating, or other intrusive human and machinery interventions.

  • Leaves nothing behind - no chemicals to further contaminate (trading one toxic pollutant for another, such as dispersants commonly used on oil spills). Nothing to pick up, scoop up or throw away like other traditional clean-up methods.

  • Eliminates expensive disposal fees as well as complex logistics and liabilities associated with offsite disposal.

  • Neither humans or wildlife or vegetation are adversely affected by the use of our microbes. The archaea will actually clean oyster beds and other aquatic species safely. Intensive studies have shown no toxic side effects over more than 30-years of successful applications in a wide variety of environments.

  • Does not kill indigenous beneficial microbes like a germicide or pesticide would.  Our beneficial microbes balance the ecosystem by outnumbering and outcompeting the pathogenic microbes. In sewage, our consortium reduces or eliminates E. coli and fecal coliform. Our microbes target the root of the problem, not the various side effects, and provide a long term, sustainable, healthy and viable solution.

  • By products produced by the beneficial microbes actually are an energy source for other organisms. Once the target hydrocarbons are degraded by cutting off the food source, our microbes die off and become a food source themselves for aquatic and terrestrial organisms - completing the circle of life.

​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.
