BK350/10 is a specially formulated microbial product, which has been designed to accelerate the degradation of petroleum hydrocarbons such as gasoline, diesel, benzene, toluene, and xylene as well as other organics in soil decontamination
applications. Typical areas include contaminants from land areas such as Factory Sites, Railway Tracks, Sidings and Embankments, Garage Forecourts, Oil Refineries, Fuel Storage Depots, Brownfield Developments, Power Cable Joint
Bays, Windrows and BioPile remediation systems. This hydrocarbon treatment can be done insitu.
BK350/10 rapidly establishes a biomass which can effectively degrade the complex structures of petroleum hydrocarbons, particularly those found at refinery sites which are very difficult to degrade. The use of a broad spectrum of bacteria results in faster degradation rates and thus quicker clean up of contaminated soil. To ensure optimal performance they are produced and blended with high potency nutrients and stimulants.
BK350/10 is effective even in saline environments. Many bacteria cannot tolerate saline conditions making the biodegradation of hydrocarbons particularly difficult in
such applications. BK350/10 contains a blend of bacteria, which has been specially adapted to operate in saline environments.
BK350/10 has an increased tolerance to high levels of chemicals found in effluent from aerobic wastewater treatment plants which can prove toxic to normal biomass.
These strains of bacteria are also capable of producing bio-surfactants, which help to accelerate the rate of degradation of relatively insoluble chemicals.
• Effective, environmentally safe solution for rapid oil and organic degradation.
• Biological action reduces oil and contaminants to carbon dioxide and water.
• Reduces risk of pollution liability and lowers disposal costs.
• Used in situ and reduces cost on landfill.
• Product requires no hazchem labelling and is therefore safe in use, storage and transport.
• Does not contain any harsh chemicals.
How to Use
BK350/10 can be used in dry or wet applications. Rake or till the soil and apply at the rate of 1 Kg per 20 square metres of contaminated soil. Maintain the treated area as if growing a lawn and water regularly.
For up to 1500 cu.mtrs use 100 Kgs of BK350/10 added to 400 Kgs of NPK fertiliser to treat 1500 cubic metres of soil.
For larger projects a simple bio-reactor system can be set up on site to make it more economic to treat full scale brownfield re-development sites. BK350/10 when used in wet applications and direct injection systems, should be
mixed with clean warm water at a temperature of approximately 30 deg C for at least 2 hours before application to soil.
BK350/10 contains no harsh chemicals or solvents. The micro-organisms present are all naturally occurring and are non-pathogenic to humans or animals.
