Project Summary #564
A tractor repair facility uses a 600-gallon
recirculating oil/water separator and steam cleaner system to pressure wash
tractors. Oily wastewater determined to be hazardous collects in the separator
BioWorld Liquid Optimizer and Hydrocarbon Digesting Microbes were added
to treat the oil. After three days, breakdown and digestion of the petroleum
hydrocarbons was apparent. On-going weekly treatments continued to digest the
oily waste into non-hazardous substances.
