Remediation of environmental pollution requires a broad range of technologies. The oldest of these is bioremediation, a natural process in which microbes reduce organic substances to water and carbon dioxide. Because indigenous bacteria are not always sufficient or suitable, the majority of bioremediation projects benefit from the addition of M-1000™ bioremediation products and M-1000 CO for oil spills.

Using proprietary methods, Micro-Bac scientists isolate different strains of microbes that work together to degrade specific contaminants. Because site conditions and types of contamination vary greatly, M-1000™ products include only microbes capable of surviving and thriving in difficult environmental situations. Treatment processes include in situ or ex situ projects, waste minimization, bioreactors, sludge lagoons, land farming, soil washing, pump and treat, and tank cleaning.

Successful use of M-1000™ products requires close collaboration between remediation, engineering, and waste management professionals. Site analysis and treatment goals are necessary before a project begins, and consistent monitoring during the treatment phase is critical. If research is needed, Micro-Bac®’s microbiologists are well equipped to conduct research on new applications.
