Z-Loy™ Bio-Go

When co-applied with organic bioremediation amendments, Z-LoyBio-Go provides a fertile groundwater environment that promotes rapid and sustained anaerobic bioremediaton. Z-LoyBio-Go products  provide the unique combination of small particle size, ease of use, and reactivity with many common groundwater contaminants. 

Product Overview
 
Potent mixture of Z-Loy™ BioGo, EVO and dechlorinating microbes during an active injection. ORP = -405 mV
 


Z-Loy™ Bio-Go  contains a mixture of reactive ceramic reductants, buffers, and nutrients which are all suspended in glycerol.  The mixture renders groundwater deoxygenated, electrochemically reducing, and pH neutral; conditions favoring anaerobic bioremediation.  The average particle size is  approximately two  to three (2 - 3) micrometers; this is the optimum size for in-situ remediation and allows for the material to be co-applied with organic bioremediation amendments at the low pressures that enable a uniform product distribution.  

 
 


The general biodegradation pathway for chlorinated ethenes achieved under conditions provided by Z-Loy™ Bio-Go.



Ethene is a great indicator of microbial degradation - along with the elimination of chlorinated contaminants, a spike in ethene 

will be observed as a degradation by-product.

Easy to Use

Z-Loy™ Bio-Go is very easy to mix and inject into contaminated groundwater.  The fluid is pumped or poured into mixing tanks containing water and bioremediation amendments.  The resulting low viscosity aqueous suspension is then pumped directly into the contaminated groundwater at pressures that are often below 20 psi.  

The Perfect Particle Size for In-Situ Remediation

Small particles are a unique feature of  Z-Loy™ products.  With an average size of a few micrometers, the particles are small enough to be suspended in water and injected directly into contaminated aquifers at low pressures.  However, the particle size is stall large enough to provide sustained reducing and pH neutral groundwater environment without requiring the high injection pressures and fracking needed to inject larger particle size products.
