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 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. Once the hydrocarbons are degraded, the food source is cut off and the microbes die off and become a food source.
