Advanced Natural Solutions for Water Remediation
- Green Technology
- Accelerated Nutrition Systems
VB591™ Water is a natural treatment for hydrocarbon remediation. VB591™ Water works in fresh, brackish and salt water. Using ADVANCED nutriation technology, VB591™ works effectively to reduce hydrocarbons in groundwater, rivers, coastal waterways, ship channels, harbors, marinas, lakes, bilges and open seas.
VB591™ Contains No Toxic Chemicals, Surfactants or Hazardous Substances.
Biodegradation and Bioremediation
Biodegradation is the natural process through which microorganism alter and break down organic molecules. Natural communities of microbes are amazingly versatile. They can carry out biodegradation in almost every type of environment and habitat, under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions. Microbes produce and emit enzymes that are catalysts that either begin or speed up chemical reactions. These enzymes break apart the bonds that hold together various contaminants. When a potential food source (the contaminant) is introduced to a microbial environment, the organisms adapt their enzymes to optimize the breakdown of that particular food source. Often many cycles of regeneration are required for microbes to adapt to the contaminant; in the process, life-sustaining nutrients are depleted. The entire conversation process can be slowed or stopped altogether.
BioNutraTech’s nutriation technology can substantially accelerate biodegradation by providing the necessary support and stimulation for native microbes to quickly multiply and produce enzymes that speed up the metabolic process of biodegradation. BioNutraTech’s formulations are also unique in that the nutrients, VB591™ are introduced in forms that are attracted to the oil globules. This attraction overthrows molecular dissimilarity and mutual bonding forces between like molecules that cause oil and water to be immiscible. In conjunction with the nutrients, VB591™, the process has demonstrated the ability to reduce the time required to effectively remove oil from rocks, sand and vegetation. VB591™ nutrients have been tested for efficacy and toxicity and can be used without causing harm to marine life.
Reduce Hyrdrocarbons in Groundwater, Rivers, Coastal Waterways, Ship Channels, Harbors, Marinas, Lakes, Bilges and Open Seas
Nutrition Technology Description
BioNutraTech’s products provide key life-source nutrients for the beneficial microbial family. It is in a form that accelerates microbial reproduction and activity through an enriched nutrient and the oleophilic coating that surrounds it.
VB591™ bionutrients —including carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and trace minerals—help microbes speed nontoxic mineralization. These nutrients provide vital nutrients for the growth and health of native microbes present at the contamination site with no threat to the extant ecological balance. As a result, contaminants are broken down to carbon dioxide, water and traces of fatty acids.
VB591™ patented formulations utilize a dry, prilled, oleophilic (oil-loving) coating. This coating physically sticks to hydrocarbons, fats, oils and greases, giving it an advantage over other nutriation methods. This coating clings to contaminants without harmful residual, ensuring that bionutrients are always available in useful concentrations for microbes. As a result, proper nutrients are made available on a time-release basis.
VB591™ contains no toxic chemicals, surfactants or hazardous substances. The product shows no indication of significant adverse impacts or algae bloom formation, and it overcomes the primary limitation of natural biodegradation. VB591™ remains stable because, it is not affected by pH, salinity, normal temperature fluctuations or alkalinity.
Environmental Protection Agency
VB591™ has been tested by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and is registered on the National Contingency Plan (NCP) Product Schedule pursuant to Title 40 of the CFR, section 300.915. The Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC) for application and use in all waters. Test results indicate that VB591™ products enhance the remediation process of alkanes and aromatics.
Enhanced Water Remediation
The product formulation of VB591™ has a patented oleophilic coating that clings to oily organic contaminants while slowly releasing the nutrients necessary for enhancing microbial growth. VB591™ formulation enhances nature’s existing waste disposal system. Oxidation-reduction reactions are the primary reactions created during bioremediation that yield free energy that microorganisms can use for cell growth and reproduction. The formulation used in VB591™ allow these beneficial microorganisms to grow in large quantities and break down complex wastes, fats, oils and hydrocarbons into simple, nontoxic byproducts, including carbon dioxide, water and traces of fatty acids. The bionutrients in VB591™ can be sprayed onto water, soil, and vegetation. When the solution comes in contact with the oil on these surfaces, it attracts the oil, reduces surface tension and allows more native bacteria to access the oils and perform the breakdown and conversion of the hydrocarbons.
