Nutri-Bio�5000 is a patented complex formulation designed to
promote emulsification and natural biodegradation of oils found in ship
bilge water. Microbes capable of degrading motor oils, diesel fuel,
gasoline, and grease are commonly found in most bodies of fresh water and
salt water. If sufficient quantities of oxygen and nutrients are present a
natural biodegradation process will take place which ultimately converts
oil residues to carbon dioxide and water.
Biodegradable surfactants in Nutri-Bio�5000 emulsify and adhere to oil
molecules to make them more available to microbes. Organic and inorganic
nutrients and several easily metabolized carbon sources in Nutri-Bio�5000
rapidly increase the populations of natural microbial hydrocarbon
degraders. Natural enzymes contained in Nutri-Bio�5000 catalyze
biodegradation. Lack of oxygen may be a limiting factor to biodegradation
if circulation and aeration are not sufficient.
Nutri-Bio�5000 is not
flammable or corrosive and will not cause rusting. The concentrated
product is not toxic to aquatic life. Nutri-Bio�5000 is derived from Nutri-Bio
1000�, a product formerly listed on the U.S. EPA's National Contingency
Plan Product Schedule for use on oil spills on water.
Regular use of this
product will eliminate the build-up that forms inside bilge water tanks
and clean oil from the bilge. Nutri-Bio�5000 may also be used in
conjunction with Bacti-Bio 1100 for complete degradation of oils if
oxygenation is provided.
