X4JH2000 for bio-remediation of hydrocarbon contamination of soil the protocol is as follows:
1. Background samples need to be taken to establish a beginning baseline for TPH) total petroleum hydrocarbon.
Portable TPH test stand will be used to test the sample for TPH content. PAH & BTEX Values will be obtained from a local testing laboratory.
2. The quantity of area that needs to be treated needs to be established. This is based on cubic meter formulation.
3. The next step will be to determine the quantity of X4JH2000 that will be needed: 1 gallons of X4JH2000 concentrate plus 10 gallons of water for the treatment of 1 cubic yard of contaminated soil.
4. By using a backhoe or excavator (depending on how deep the contamination is and quantity) begin digging down to the point of contamination and turn the soil. When the soil has been thoroughly turned then the introduction of the X4JH2000 will begin.
5. While the soil is being turned, the X4JH2000 will be sprayed over the contaminated soil and continued tilling until the soil becomes slurry. When this process is completed, fresh soil from this surrounding area needs to be added for stabilization and additional indigenous microbial colonization.
