For the Degradation of Gasoline Waste
M-1000BX™ is a biological product designed and formulated for the degradation of a select group of contaminated and/or hazardous wastes. These compounds include benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes (BTEX). This product has been used successfully in a variety of in-situ and ex-situ applications. M-1000BX™ 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 the listed hazardous waste chemicals as a carbon source.
M-1000BX™ can be applied to contaminated or hazardous substances in numerous ways. For soil applications, the product can be sprayed, or the soil can be reduced to a slurry and circulated with M-1000BX™. 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-1000BX™ 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-1000BX™. Routine hygiene should be observed.
