S-Oil Treat

Bioremediation of Oil Contaminated Soil and Sand

A biological treatment system to remove oil from contaminated soils and sand, without the need for expensive offsite excavation.

  • Degrades and digests oil pollution in-situ

  • No harmful by-products

  • Environmentally friendly


  • A unique blend of aerobic oil digesting bacteria degrades and digests oil pollution in-situ
  • Produces no harmful by-products in use
  • Environmentally friendly


Where to Use

  • Designed to biologically remove oil contamination from soil and sand.
  • Removes the need for expensive offsite excavation.

How to Use

  • Isolate surrounding ground water from increasing contamination.
  • For small areas, the contaminated soil can be lifted onto a polythene sheet.
  • For larger areas, trenches may have to be dug to collect run-off.
  • Till the polluted area to break up the soil and aerate it.
  • Introduce S-Oil Treat at a level of 0.5 kg per 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 dilute nutrient solution onto the soil weekly after application. We recommend using Oil Technics Nutrient 8 at a 1% solution in water.
  • 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.
  • Continue to recycle run-off water until the hydrocarbon content falls to acceptable levels.
