EnviRemed uses microbial solutions for remediation in soil and water contamination projects ranging from hydrocarbons to sludge to fats, oil and greases, and eutrophication issues.
Microorganisms (microbes) include bacteria, molds, fungi, and yeasts as the primary decomposers of all waste organics produced in our environment, whether it originates from human, animal, or plant sources. The natural biological (microbial) process is responsible for cleansing our rivers, streams, and soil.
Microbes convert organic compounds enzymatically prior to the ingestion of the organic material. The microbes accomplish this feat in a process of extracellular and intracellular enzyme production, in which enzymes are excreted from the microbial cell. The enzymes convert organic compounds to more soluble molecular substrates (simpler and more digestible compounds) prior to ingestion by the microbes as a source of food energy. A compound that has been altered by enzyme catalysts into a simpler molecular form will not convert to its original state.
The better the microbes, the more efficiently the system will operate. In choosing the optimum microbial/nutrient combination, our research scientists grew, isolated and produced specific microbial strains with superior degradation and synergistic characteristics. This research resulted in our ability to provide clients with safe products containing highly efficient microbial strains that consistently produce improved contaminant degradation in treatment systems.
