Oil Blitz Cleans Hydraulic Oil from a Green

In mid-January 2017 a major hydraulic fluid spill occurred on the 10th green of Milltown Golf Club. Hydraulic oil leaked onto the wheels of a machine being used to hollow core the green – with multiple lines of oil up and down the green. Seven days after spraying the oil with Oil Blitz, the black lines had completely disappeared.

Nanobite Protects Sea Life from Oil Pollution

Oil pollution at sea can have devastating consequences for sea life – especially seabirds. When their feathers get covered in crude oil, they are unable to fly, and death is almost certain. Nanobite Powder is 100% environmentally safe, and can be used to clean oil and other hydrocarbons from the feathers of sea birds – safely and quickly.

Nanobite Cleans up Coastal Oil Disaster

On November 13, 2002, the Greek tanker The Prestige began losing its cargo after one of its tanks burst off the northwest coast of Spain – releasing more than 77,000 tons of #6 bunker crude oil into the sea. This created one of the largest environmental disasters in Spanish coastal history.

Black Sod Bay Oil Spill

Spilled Motor Fuels Clean Up

In Black Sod Bay in County Mayo, between 45 and 50 cars were transported from a neighbouring island destined for scrap. They were deposited at low tide on the shoreline to await transportation. As soon as the tide came in, it became apparent that oil, diesel, petrol had begun to seep from the vehicles. A natural disaster ensued.

Nanobite Remediates River Boyne Oil Spill

On the September 6 2007, an oil spill from a fuel dump leaks into the beautiful Boyne River, County Louth, Ireland. Local wild fowl and their nesting areas are endangered, as is the local water supply. The coastguards deploy conventional booms to contain the spill but decide against the use of conventional chemical detergents because of the obvious damage to flora and fauna.

93% of Oil From Railway Tracks Remediated

Railway engines are predominantly diesel and as such  they discharge large volumes of oil, diesel and hydraulic fluids as they operate. These hydrocarbons contaminate the railway lines, stations and sidings on which the engines operate, leading to significant environmental damage.

Nanobite Bioremediates a Contaminated Harbour

When a hydrocarbon is spilled on water, it is highly obvious – floating on the surface, a blue green sheen clearly visible. This makes the testing of the water redundant – there is oil on the surface that needs to be treated.

99% of Oil from Leaking Tanks Remediated

Spills and leaks from commercial and domestic oil tanks are a very common occurrence, caused either by the refilling of tanks or as the result of leaks. Very  often old metal tanks corrode and start leaking oil onto the ground around the tank.

99% of Interceptor Contamination Remediated

An interceptor tank is a trap used to filter out hydrocarbon pollutants from rainwater runoff. It is typically used in road construction and on petrol station forecourts to prevent fuel contamination of the water table but is an environmental hazard if not remediated carefully and regularly.

Bioremediation of Antifreeze Lakes at Airports

Ethylene glycol (antifreeze), used to de-ice airplanes, is generally stored in lakes and holding ponds in or around airports. Poisonous to human beings and animal life if ingested, Nanobite can completely bioremediate this hydrocarbon in situ using a combination of liquid and powder booms.
