For the Degradation of Crude Oil Waste
M-1000CO™ is a biological product designed and formulated for the treatment of soil and water contaminated with crude oil. Crude oils vary greatly, and in some cases, this special group of bacterial strains shows better activity than M-1000H★. This product is used for in-situ and ex-situ applications.
M-1000CO™ consists of live, specially-selected, naturally-occurring microorganisms, along with a supply of balanced nutrients in a ready-to-use liquid medium.
These microorganisms thrive in a variety of site conditions with diverse soils and various water chemistries. They are capable of using crude oil as a carbon source.
M-1000CO™ can be applied in numerous ways. For soil applications, the product can be sprayed, or the soil can be reduced to a slurry and circulated with M-1000CO™. For vadose zone or groundwater applications, the bacteria can be applied into wells or infiltration galleries. Often the addition of specially-formulated nutrients can be used to augment the activity of the product in conditions where macro nutrients such as carbon, nitrogen, or phosphate are limited. A good monitoring program is critical to the success of any bioremediation project.
Handling and Safety
M-1000CO™ is a natural, non-pathogenic, non-engineered biological product that meets EPA requirements for release into the environment. Special clothing or equipment is not required for handling M-1000CO™. Routine hygiene should be observed.
