Engineered to provide immediate and long-lasting results for fuel depots, industrial tank farms, petroleum retail stations as well as rail, road and domestic oil spills, PetroFix® is a cost-effective, in situ treatment for petroleum hydrocarbon contamination.

How PetroFix works:

What is PetroFix?

PetroFix is a water-based suspension of micron-scale (1-2μm) activated carbon and biostimulating electron acceptors (slow and quick-release nutrients).

How does it work?

1) PetroFix distributes in the subsurface and coats the soils with micron-scale activated carbon.

2) Petroleum hydrocarbons rapidly sorb to the activated carbon, removing them from the groundwater.

3) Electron acceptors in the PetroFix kick-start natural biological degradation of the contamination sorbed.

4) Biological degradation rejuvenates sorption sites to allow further influx sorption, providing a long-term treatment.
