-- Although Bio- Technology has been around for decades, the incorporation into remediation of petroleum contaminated sites has been lagging. In the last few years
many new products have been introduced. Environmental Systems (depenvirosystems.com)
has developed patent pending " Bio Technology" products that help stimulate naturally occuring " Bio- Enzymes" which digest petroleum derivities. These nano size particles reduce contamination levels both in soils and ground water. This is not a miracle product and may not be suitable for every site, especially grossly contaminated ones. This product has been successfully used on homeowner heating oil site and retail gas stations clean-up were there has been contaminated soil and impact to ground water. The key to successful use of "Bio-Remediation"
products is the conditioning of the site environment prior to use. Once site is properly conditioned and
proper parameters are reached, the " Bio Remediation process wil begin. The time
frame for reaching remediation golas can be from 1- month to 1 year depending on
the levels of petroleum contamination. Environmental Systems recommends completing a short feasiblity study prior to implementation this project. The feasibility
study involves reviewing the site history and obtaining soil and ground water samples
to determine the extent of the petroleum contamination. Once the site is charaterized
the proper dose and amount of ' Bio Remediation"
product can formulated for the specific site. Every gasoline station and heating oil site has a unique contamination fingerprint which is the reason why some product work and other do not .
