Remediator is applied by blending the dry product with the contaminated soil as evenly as possible. Once the contaminant hydrocarbon comes in contact with Remediator, it will be absorbed and encapsulated (up to saturation level). The product is dispersed by tilling, and there is no requirement for washing and milling as with other bacterial applications.
Remediation can take place in situ (to a depth of .5 metres) whereas deeper contamination should be excavated, blended and treated ex-situ (or replaced in-situ). Sludges should be thoroughly blended with a bulking agent for moisture retention. Keep product dry prior to application. A general application protocol and a more detailed technical application protocol (for a crude oil spill) can be downloaded here. Detailed, site-specific application protocols are available upon request.
As a safe-to-use, dual-purpose oil and fuel absorbent as well as a bioremediation agent, the Remediator is also able to be used on direct spills.
In soil remediation no two situations are identical, therefore the correct application protocols should be determined in conjunction with Enretech personnel.
The Remediator process has been extensively used over the past 14 years in Australia and internationally, and has been independently verified by universities or research organisations in Canada, USA, UK, Japan and South Africa.
