Postnum: 160 EntryID:831
we have a small area on our farm where diesel fuel spilt, I was told that I could mix the soil with chicken waste and have the hydrocarbons removed what is the mix ratio and what is the airation process

The process you are describing is called bioremediation. The chicken manure acts like a fertilizer to the microorganisms in the soil which can then degrade the hydrocarbons. Unfortunately, the mix ratio and airation process depends on the extent of the spill and the soil properties. Your best bet would be to get in touch with a local consulting company who specializes in bioremediation, or you could try contacting a university as there may be students and professors working on projects related to your problem.

We provide an bioremediating product that is marketed as "Oil Sponge Remedial Premium Absorbent". It is a powder-like absorbent that eliminates pollutants, contaminants and toxins found in gardens. lawns and soils. It is the only known absorbent that has been inoculated with hydrocarbon-eating microbes and nutrients.

We operate out of Mississauga, Ontario. Please send me an e-mail if you are interested (
