A NEW approach towards
Accellerated natural attenuation utilizing organics
Soils contaminated with hydrocarbons is one of the major problems facing companies and government agencies today. Costs for cleanup are high and going higher. Results are slow, sometimes years are needed to see if the investment in time and money will correct the problem. Liabilities are great. EPA, homeowners, and environmental groups are all watching for opportunities to expose any problems they suspect.
Why P.O.L. Sorb® technology?
P.O.L. Sorb® is a special grade of sphagnum peat moss that can draw the hydrocarbons from the soil. It inhibits compaction of the soil, allowing the hydrocarbon to breakdown naturally while preventing it from spreading. The elements needed to break-down hydrocarbons are more stable and safe when using P.O.L. Sorb®. Additionally, this technology not only draws the hydrocarbons from the soil, it can actually reverse the plume of traveling hydrocarbons.
P.O.L. Sorb® is cost effective, easy to use, environmentally friendly, and safe for plants and animals.
When land is prepared with our special blend of P.O.L. Sorb® and water we accelerate the natural process that remediates contaminated soil, similar to natural attenuation. However, although a simple process, this technology uses natural components to effectively remove hydrocarbons in a shorter period of time.
In addition, this technology can be adjusted to a land-farming method that will complete the remediation even faster.
All of this can be accomplished without adding the high cost of removal, transportation, disposal, and replacement of the contaminated soil.
How long does it take to do the job?
Our case study and research indicates this remediation process averages between 3 and 6 months. This is effected by weather conditions and site maintenance. Yet it is a fraction of the time it takes many technologies to do the same job.
How much does it cost?
Data from the current projects show a savings of up to 35%-50% over other technologies, with proven results. Greater flexibility in weather, soil, contamination type, and application makes P.O.L. Sorb® Bio-Remediation the most cost effective process available.
