SiREM’s Bioaugmentation Value Proposition: Guaranteed Results - Competitive Pricing - Unrivaled Technical Support

KB-1® and KB-1® Plus bioaugmentation cultures have been used for over a decade to enhance bioremediation of chlorinated solvents. These cultures introduce beneficial microorganisms to contaminated sites where they are absent or at low concentrations. Bioaugmentation with KB-1® and KB-1® Plus is an effective solution to enhance remediation of a growing range of chlorinated solvents and other recalcitrant compounds including:

 
  • Chlorinated ethenes (PCE,TCE, all DCE isomers, VC)
  • Chlorinated ethanes (1,1,1-TCA, 1,2-DCA, TeCA and others)
  • Chlorinated methanes (CF, DCM)
  • Chlorinated propanes (1,2,3-TCP, 1,2-DCP)
  • RDX
  • Chlorofluorocarbons

Highest Quality Products

Successful bioaugmentation starts with a concentrated bioaugmentation culture that arrives on site with high viability. SiREM's production and delivery methods combined with our comprehensive quality control program ensures:

  • High concentrations of dechlorinating organisms
  • High dechlorination rates
  • Culture stability
  • cVOC free
  • Pathogen/GMO free
  • Easy application using our customized delivery vessels and tool kits

Bioaugmentation Saves Time & Money

Bioremediation is generally accepted as one of the least expensive remediation options (McDade et al., 2005) and bioaugmentation represents only a small fraction of project costs. Moreover, bioaugmentation is a one-time application that reduces cleanup time frames and associated site operation, maintenance and monitoring costs (Stroo et al., 2013). Bioaugmentation represents a modest investment that provides significant performance and financial dividends.

Worldwide Regulatory Acceptance

SiREM's bioaugmentation cultures have been approved for use and applied in numerous jurisdictions including:

  • Forty US States, Canada, six EU countries, Australia and Asia
  • KB-1® is the only culture of its type with regulatory approval for use in Canada
