Bioremediation of Crude Oil
Contaminated Soil
Project #1095

A petroleum processing facility in Colombia treated 200 cubic meters of crude oil contaminated soil with BioWorld Bioremediation Technology.  The initial total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) concentration was greater than 60,000 ppm.  

BioWorld Bioremediation Enhancer and Hydrocarbon Digesting Microbes were added to the soil 3 times over a two-month period.  Product cost was low per cubic meter compared to other methods of cleanup.  Within 2 months, the TPH concentration reached less than 10,000 ppm and the project was considered a success.
