Where to Use

How to Use

  • For full application details, refer to the Where and How to Use page of S-Oil Treat.
  • Till the polluted area to break up the soil and aerate it and introduce S-Oil Treat at a level of 0.5 kg cubic metre of polluted soil.
  • Spray the area with water to maintain damp conditions. Recycle run-off water to the soil to limit dispersal of oil and active bacteria.
  • Once wet, the remediation process is supported by spraying a 1% of Nutrient 8 solution in water onto the soil to keep treated soil moist.
  • If the soil is liable to compaction, it must be re-tilled to maintain aeration and may require additional culture and nutrient.
  • Keep the soil damp, aerated and fed with S-Oil Treat and Nutrient 8, recycling run-off water until the hydrocarbon content falls to acceptable levels.
