Oil Spill Eater II is a biocatalytic system of preformed multi-enzyme liquid concentrate. When combined with fresh or salt water and oxygen, it will cause crude oil and other organic substances to rapidly decompose, eventually biodegrading them to carbon dioxide and water.

Introduction[edit]

Oil Spill Eater II is a bioremediation process for the mitigation of hazardous waste, spills and contamination. It uses bioremediation processes that eliminate hazardous materials.[1] It is a biological enzyme that converts the oil spills into a natural food source for the enhanced native bacteria found in the environment. The result of this process is CO2 and water. The enzyme permanently eliminates the hazardous waste problem, with no secondary cleanup required. [1]

How It Works[edit]

Oil spill eater II contains the biosurfactants, nutrients and other constituents for complete life cycles and biodegradation. When Oil spill Eater II is added to a spill, the process generally takes a few minutes to several minutes, depending on how heavy the damage is of the spill.[2] As the biosurfactants do their job, the enzymes attach themselves to broken down hydrocarbon structures, forming digestive binding sites.

Results[edit]

  • The toxicity of the spill is rapidly diminished.
  • The odor or smell is almost non-existent.
  • The oil or spill will no longer adhere to anything.
  • The spill is caused to float.[2]

Oil Spill Eater II causes the oil to come onto the surface of the water, which reduces the impact to the sub-surface.[2] It starts to prevent secondary contamination of the water column or tertiary contamination on the body of water associated with the spill area. The spill being held on the surface will make it easy to monitor.[2]

Economy[edit]

The product reduced its cleanup cost on water spills from $90.00 per gallon to $12.00 per gallon using OSEII and only $1.00 of the $12.00 is the cost of OSEII.[3]

Health factors[edit]

The product is non-toxic to humans, animals, plants and marine life and is very safe because it is non-poisonous and non-irritating. It contains no known allergens to cause skin, respiratory or other allergic reactions.[4] It contains no corrosive chemicals or metal trace elements, which will not damage any electrical insulation or painted surfaces. [5] It will reduce fire hazard and then starts the solubilisation process. This process begins it is applied to crude oil, gasoline or spilled hydrocarbons. [5]
