C.E.R.E.S. PTSTM Advanced for Petroleum Remediation

PTS Advanced Biodegradable Surfactants

Biodegradable Chemistry for Surfactant Enhanced Bio-Remediation of Petroleum Hydrocarbons, Fuels, and Oils.

Surfactant enhanced remediation product comprised of an all-natural solution of the most advanced sustainable and biodegradable surfactant blend resulting in accelerated emulsification and desorption of petroleum hydrocarbons, fuel-oxygenates, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, chlorinated benzene and many more contaminants in soils, groundwater, and surface water environments. The U.S. EPA SaferChoice registered surfactants contain hydrophobic and hydrophilic properties, making them ideal for solubilizing hydrophobic compounds, reducing the interfacial tension of water and increasing the efficiency of remediation and offering the lowest ecotoxicity of commercial remediation surfactants. PTS Advanced outperforms other surfactants when bioremediation and natural attenuation are desired longer-term management strategies post source removal.

For Source Reduction and LNAPL Remediation Applications

PTSTM Advanced was designed to penetrate pure phase and residual LNAPL to enhance biological degradation processes and improves degradation processes in conjunction with bioremediation and mechanical remediation systems such as SVE, DPE, MPE and Air Sparge. PTSTM Advanced works in conjunction with PTSTM and delivers an ecologically safe and non-toxic surfactant blend specifically tailored to enhance the solubilization of petroleum and increase the bioavailability of the hydrocarbons for the bacteria.

In the case of surface spills of oil and refined fuels on land, in rivers or spills in the ocean, PTSTM Advanced works aggressively to help solubilize the pure phase petroleum and long-chain hydrocarbons and promotes biodegradation. It is safe to aquatic ecosystems, humans, and other living organisms and is actually ideal for sustainable rejuvenation of soil for reuse in the environment.
