Applications

EN2000 First Response® can be used in the following applications:

Spill clean up of oils & volatile hydrocarbons

Spills on soil

Clean up of storage tanks/vessels insitu or exsitu

Wet scrubbing

Odour control of hydrocarbon and biological waste

Spills on roadways and pavement

Vapor suppression

On water ways

Odour Control

Green Landfill/General Waste Gas Odours

Bad odours result from the biodegradation of biological waste in the absence of oxygen, the likes of green waste, leachate, normal household and biological industrial waste. Most produced gases are odourless, methanes, carbon dioxides, these gases can be collected and turned into a highly needed energy source. That leaves us with a range of highly odourous gases, these are best known as sulphide gases, eg: rotten rubbish, rotten egg smells. These gases are harmful in many ways not the least is the general wellbeing of anybody who is exposed to it.

EN2000 First Response® was initially developed for the bioremediation of hydrocarbon plumes and the remediation of contaminated sites; former petrol stations, fuel depots, refineries etc. While being applied in a site in NSW the operator encountered a natural biological seam around 1 metre in depth, the odour was so bad local Council and EPA almost closed the site. It is then that we discovered that EN2000 First Response® can control sulphide gases as well as BTEX’s.

EN2000 First Response® had been used at dilution rates unheard of previously after the initial dilution of 50:1, the rate was then decreased to 200:1 and only increased as required eg. when new seams or previously untreated material was encountered.

From numerous field tests EN2000 First Response® has demonstrated its ability to control both leachate water, as well as compost and green waste odours. Although this work is still in progress and further testing is ongoing, the best analysing instrument of odours in the world, the human nose was convinced that EN2000 First Response® eliminated the bad odours instantly.

EN2000 First Response® is a certified and proven “readily biodegradable” product. EN2000 First Response® is certified to Australian Standards AS4351-2.
