United-Tech has been involved in the biological treatment of soils and waters contaminated by chemicals related to the petrochemical industry for over three decades either directly, through one of our global distributors, or through various consulting & engineering firms, or ‘in-house’ industrial personnel. Our product of choice for hydrocarbon and hydrocarbon-related compound contamination projects is OBT® Oil Degradation Treatment.
OBT® Oil Degradation Treatment is formulated using all-natural, non-pathogenic ingredients including non-GMO microorganisms, enzymes, and nutritive carriers. Together these ingredients enable our microorganisms to establish a viable community within a contaminated system. The microorganisms used in OBT® Oil Degradation Treatment become an integral part of a very complex web of organisms that work together to completely break down and digest hydrocarbon compounds like oils, diesel, gasoline, solvents, glycols, as well as alcohols, phenols, etc.
The microorganisms in OBT® Oil Degradation Treatment were selected for their ability to work together and in concert with indigenous microorganisms to co-metabolize contaminants in a variety of systems. OBT® Oil Degradation Treatment is used in soil remediation, either in situ or ex situ; water contamination, salt or fresh; or wastewater scenarios. Anywhere unwanted hydrocarbons exist.
