What Is It?

Oil Spill Eater II (OSE II), is the world’s most environmentally safe and cost-effective bioremediation product, for the mitigation of hazardous waste, spills and contamination.
OSE II is an environmentally safe clean-up method because it uses nature’s own bioremediation process to effectively eliminate hazardous materials. (Read More)

OSE II is not a bacteria (bug), fertilizer or dispersant product.  It is a biological enzyme that converts the waste into a natural food source for the native bacteria found in the environment.  The end result is only CO2 and water.
OSE II will reduce clean-up costs and permanently eliminate the hazardous waste problem with no secondary clean-up required.


When OSE II is applied to an oil spill, the oil’s molecular structure begins to breakdown immediately and in a short time, visually disappears.  
Bio surfactants help by connecting with the oil molecules and breaking down the covalent and ionic bonds, creating small micelles (oil droplets).  
The process rapidly reduces the toxicity of the oil, making more bioavailable it to indigenous bacteria that then utilize the oil as a food source.
OSE II contains nutrients which attract indigenous bacteria that rapidly colonise/grow in numbers, speeding up spill remediation.
OSE II does NOT contain any foreign bacteria or non-indigenous organisms.  
The bacteria rapidly consume the oil with the help of OSE II nutrients and enzymes until all is converted to CO2 and water, permanently removing the oil from the environment.

User Benefits?

Final result is simply:   CO2 and water
A one step cleaning procedure; usually there is no need for additional cleaning processes, such as having to collect and dispose of effluent.
Oil spill quickly visibly disappears.
OSE II is a fire retardant:  Mixture flammability is greatly reduced or completely diminished.
OSE II can treat underground spills.
OSE II can treat all kind of hydrocarbon spills from jet fuel, lubricants and heavy fuel oils, including crude oil.
Application Methods?

OSE II can be applied by surface spray apparatus, such as a small hand held tank, back pack, large mixing tanks with mechanical pumping devices, vessels with booms for spraying wide paths or spray devices on airplanes or helicopters.  OSE II can be applied by educator systems from vessels, fire trucks etc.
Usual mixing radio is 1:50 (1 litre of OSE II mixed with 50 litre of non-chlorinated water).
Denser concentrations can be used for older or heavier spills to accelerate process.
Process cleaning time duration varies from a few hours to several weeks, depending on the kind of hydrocarbon and type of spill.
