OBT® Oil Degradation Treatment is designed to clean up oil spills on both land and in water - safely and naturally. Organic compounds such as crude oil and gasoline are converted into non-toxic substances such as carbon dioxide, water and oxygen, thereby ensuring a cleaner, healthier environment.

For reasons of principle and pragmatism, the bacteria and enzymes that make up OBT® are all natural, non-genetically altered, and non-pathogenic. By utilizing a patented micro-encapsulation process, we are able to have very high bacteria counts per gram and a minimum shelf life of two years. In addition, the micro-encapsulation process also insures that viable, potent "first-generation" strains are ready to work on the project immediately.

Advantages of using OBT® Oil Degradation Treatment

  • Treatment of spills on site, eliminating the need for a costly second party to excavate and remove the contamination.
  • Removal of hydrocarbons from wastewater to ease the load on the wastewater treatment plant.
  • Remediation of spills within secondary containment areas to insure compliance with storm water management plans.
  • Expediting the process of tank cleaning by converting heavy, oily sludge to light floating oil.
  • Remediation of remote areas where mobilization of traditional equipment is not possible.
  • Open water oil spills
