Archaea

​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.

Benefits

How It Works

  • Remediates contamination, leaving clean water and clean soil.

  • STPs (sewage treatment plants) and upstream infrastructure run more
    cost-effectively and efficiently. Stoppages and lift station failures are minimized. Maintenance costs, chemical use, and electricity use all go down.

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

  • Does not kill indigenous beneficial microbes like a germicide or pesticide would.  Our beneficial microbes 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.
