Nutrisulfate® Sulfate-Enhanced Bioremediation

Nutrient-enhanced sulfate solution that stimulates anaerobic degradation of hydrocarbons in groundwater

Nutrisulfate® is a high sulfate metabolic supplement designed to enhance the kinetics and efficiency of microbial systems specifically related to bioremediation of BTEX, MTBE, TBA and other petroleum hydrocarbons.

Nutrisulfate® (U.S. Patent No. 7,138,060) stimulates biodegradation by providing a soluble, readily available electron acceptor solution. In the presence of elevated sulfate, anaerobic groundwater bacteria use BTEX, MTBE and other petroleum hydrocarbons for carbon and energy while mineralizing the hydrocarbons to carbon dioxide and water. Sulfate addition enhances natural conditions and reduces the carbon footprint when compared to conventional remediation.
