Using bioremediation to detoxify many pollutants has become a common practice. Quick response with a set surface biological treatment has proven very effective in shallow, soil surface spills in tanks farms, rail yards, etc where the contamination is within a few inches of the surface and the contaminant is often crude or fuels such as diesel. In the above case, a quick addition of fertilizer, microbes, and biosurfactant/surfactant blends can reduce TPH to background in anywhere from 21 - 120 days depending upon contamination extent and other environmental variable. Benefits from in-situ treatment include:
