Nanobite products bioremediate oil contamination.

How does bioremediation work?

Bioremediation is the process of using naturally occurring, safe and beneficial micro organisms (microbes) to break down environmentally harmful contaminants and turn them into non-toxic compounds. In particular, these microbes will break down most petroleum hydrocarbons and transform them into CO2 (carbon dioxide) and H2O (water).

Domestic oil tank leak

This type of oil leak is common problem globally. In this particular case, a domestic oil tank leak in Ireland, June 2016, had a 98.5% bioremediation success rate in only four weeks using Nanobite Liquid.

Coastal oil spill

The Prestige tanker split apart in 2002 and released 77,000 tons of crude oil into the sea. This washed up onto the shores of Spain, France and Portugal and is the worst environmental disaster of its kind in this part of the world. Nanobite Liquid was selected by the Spanish government as the best in class and selected to treat this oil spill.
