OIL SPILL CLEANUP IN THE GULF OF MEXICO. BUILDING A BETTER WORLD GREEN’S – BBWG 701
- Large amounts of hydrocarbons (Crude Oil) released in a saline environment.
- MANUALLY REMOVE FROM WATER – This process is time consuming, extremely expensive and potentially unmanageable!
- DEFLOCCULATE – This process cause the oil to sink to the bottom of the ocean, and destroy the life there!
- BEST SCENARIO – DIGEST - Using Archea (extremophiles) BBWG 701 safely digests the hydrocarbons and will then become a food source for native species of life. Once the food source (oil spill) is exhausted the Archae will go dormant and cease to have an effect on the environment. These bacteria standardly live in soils and cannot live in salt water environments without a substantial food source (such as an oil spill).
WHAT ARE ARCHEA?
- Archea is a classification of micro-bacteria that can live in extreme environments. They are thought to be one of the first types of bacteria to evolve on earth. There simple structure allows them to proliferate quickly as long as there is food for them to do so.
- Archea can digest almost any naturally occurring mineral, and they love hydrocarbons. They are limited as they have no way of moving, and easily become food for other organisms.
- There one saving grace is that they can live and grow rapidly in environments that would kill other creatures (such as an oil slick).
HOW DOES BBWG 701 WORK?
- BBWG 701 contains a variety of species of bacteria (including archea) that work cooperatively to digest hydrocarbons.
- These are all naturally occurring organisms (not produced in a lab) that are responsible for the breakdown of organic mater in compost piles. Using specialized techniques we create extremely high concentrations of these organisms so that they can be effectively applied to soils, ponds, ect.
DOES BBWG 701 WORK ON OIL SPILLS IN THE OCEAN?
Our cultures are grown in a saline environment so that they can deal with ; in short they will be perfectly at home in a saline environment (that is until they run out of free floating hydrocarbons to snack on).
WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE OIL?
The oil will be transformed into bacterial bodies and slowly work their ways up the of native into plants and fish. Oddly enough, this disaster could end up being a boon to the local fishing communities once the oil has been transformed into a food source for the local ecology.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE BACTERIA?
The bacteria can only exist in this environment as long as there is a food source for them to consume. Once the oil has been consumed they will be forced into dormancy and then eaten by native species that are better suited to the local environment.
COULD THESE BACTERIA HARM THE LOCAL ECOSYSTEM?
No – due to the fact that these are soil bacteria they will be unable to compete against local species for long. The local micro-organisms will have the upper hand once the oil has been digested.
COULD THIS CAUSE AN ALGAE BLOOM?
If the oil was in shallow water it is possible that the excess of nutrients could cause an algae bloom and kill fish. This spill is however in with strong undercurrents witch will disperse the bacterial bodies created by the digested oil over the course of 7 days. This will prevent the high concentrations of excess nutrients from building up in the water eliminating the chance of an incidental algae bloom.
HOW WILL IT BWG 701 BE APPLIED?
A crop duster could easily apply this product to the effected area. It should not require more than a few applications.
WHAT IS IN BBWG 701?
This proprietary product contains micro bacteria living in a mixture of carbon (the food source for the bacteria) liquefied fish, molasses, sea weed, , and other simple sugars. These are simply foods used to encourage the bacteria to grow. We have chosen the food sources to be non-toxic and Eco-friendly.
WHEN CAN WE START?
We would be pleased to begin the process immediately, as our businesses where chosen from our desire to aid the environment. As it may take up to a month to fully treat the effected area, the sooner the better!
