|Like BioGeoCheMix®, FibreSorb can be applied as  briquettes,  granules or  pellets to simplify soil remediation and to treat heavy hydrocarbons and PAH's in aqueous sediments (these product forms sink in water).|
|Photos show granular form of the FibreSorb product, which simplifies product handling and application in the field and reduces nuisance dusts.|
|Photos illustrate the results of the treatment of small oil spills on asphalt pavement with the granular FibreSorb product. Note that as of 6 weeks (right) to 8 weeks later (left), most of the FibreSorb has broken down via microbial decomposition, degrading the lubricating-oil hydrocarbons in the process and leaving no residual wastes requiring disposal|
|Biodegradable Absorbent for Oil Spills & the Bioremediation of Hydrocarbons|
FibreSorb is a biodegradable absorbent for the clean up of surface spills of hydrocarbon products and for the bioremediation of hydrocarbon-contaminated soils. FibreSorb is a patent-pending blend of cotton and other plant-based materials with additional nutrients, enzymes and microorganisms that enhance the biodegradation of both the FibreSorb and petroleum hydrocarbons absorbed therein. The used FibreSorb can either be left in place to biodegrade over time (see photos at right) or swept up and placed in a compost pile or container to promote the biodegradation of the FibreSorb product and the co-metabolic bioremediation of the petroleum hydrocarbons absorbed within the FibreSorb, eliminating the need for the disposal of contaminated wastes.
The FibreSorb product can be used to promote the bioremediation of petroleum-contaminated soils by mixing the product into the contaminated soils. Large-scale soil bioremediation projects can be facilitated with the use of a pugmill to optimize the mixing of the FibreSorb product with the contaminated soils.
The bioremediation of FibreSorb-treated soils can be enhanced by the periodic application of Geovations patented N-Blend nutrients. FibreSorb can also be manufactured and applied as briquettes, granules and pellets (see left). These value-added product forms not only simplify the handling and application of FibreSorb in the field, but they also sink in water, providing a cost-effective means for the in-situ bioremediation of hydrocarbons and PAH's in aqueous sediments beneath rivers, lakes, harbors, lagoons and similar, difficult-to-treat environments.
