greendot  Hydrocarbon removal
greendot  Compost promotion

Soil bioremediation and Hydrocarbon Removal

FBF Organics was called in to assist with a diesel (hydrocarbon) spillage at a refinery in Durban. The diesel had soaked into the sea sand of the refinery and was largely invisible. However its presence was evidenced by the strong odour of diesel. We resolved to irrigate the area (20m2) with the Bio Activator by placing a length of PVC piping with numerous holes, releasing the innoculum into the sand. The odour reduction was virtually immediate and bioremediation of the soil was noticed by the restoration of vegetation.

Direct Advantages of Bio Activator X256 to soil with hydrocarbon spillages:
greendot  In Situ remediation
greendot  Odour management
greendot  Compost Promotion

The Bio Activator's innoculum is a liquid that stimulates existing micro-organisms within the compost, creating a beneficial environment for more efficient composting. The activator does not attempt to introduce any new micro-organisms into the system, neither is it an enzyme that could denature in the high temperatures of composting.It is a catalyst, enhancing the micro-organisms.

It also enables the bacteria to work aerobically in what are essentially, anaerobic conditions. This means that no turning or aeration is required in the process of composting, minimising time and risk in the composting process.

The centres of each bale where placed together and compared visually, as shown in the adjacent picture. The control and FBF were similar with the latter slightly darker. The third (FBF + Urea) was very dark rich indicating a good composting process. Bale 4 (urea) showed colouration that indicates negligible composting, with the straw of a light colouration.Visible degrees of composting

The use of the Bio Activator increases the composting temperatures, the rate of increase in temperature in limited oxygen environments. It facilitates an aerobic process eliminating the requirement for expensive, labour intensive turning or aeration whilst decreasing the time taken for complete composting.
