Re: Microbial Products Presentation
We will be hosting a representative from Micro-Blaze to present information on their products
which have common applications that could directly benefit facilities and operations at NMSU. The following advertised applications and benefits of use appear to be valuable alternative solutions to organic based contamination and spills.
Spill Control: Cleans up accidental spills at fueling depots, on roadways, parking lots, around vehicle repair areas, oil and grease storage areas, etc. Eliminates the fire hazard of spilled fuels and digests the wastes, with no need to soak up the spills with costly absorbents that still need costly disposal.
Food Preparation sites, canteens: Treatment of the grease trap lines eliminates the hassle of line stoppages and heavy buildup of grease in grease traps. The product digests fats, oils and grease to reduce pumping costs and maintenance.
Underground storage tanks, gas tanks, etc.: Used in and around leaking underground petroleum storage tanks the product will inert the volatile hydrocarbons, eliminating any potential fire hazard while degrading the contamination that may be seeping towards underground water sources. Spraying around above ground tanks helps cut down pollution from leaks.
Non-pathogenic, naturally occurring microbes used in these formulations are non-toxic and biodegradable. This microbial product is widely utilized by fire departments statewide to eliminate flammability of hydrocarbons in emergency liquid spill control. The products are utilized to completely digest organic based contamination, such as:
· hydrocarbons, such as diesel fuel, gasoline, motor oils, etc.
· benzene, BTEX, contamination
· glycols, such as antifreeze compounds
· oils, fats, greases from residential, commercial, industrial
· other organic compounds
Please join us on December 20, 1999 from 9:00-10:00 am in Safety Office, Academic Research Building C room 109 for a short presentation, question and answer session.
