For the Degradation of Gasoline Waste
M-1000BX™ is a biological product designed and formulated for the degradation of a select group of contaminated and/or hazardous wastes. These compounds include benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes (BTEX). This product has been used successfully in a variety of in-situ and ex-situ applications.
M-1000BX™ consists of live, specially-selected, naturally-occurring microorganisms, along with a supply of balanced nutrients in a ready-to-use liquid medium.
These microorganisms thrive in a variety of site conditions with diverse soils and various water chemistries. They are capable of using the listed hazardous waste chemicals as a carbon source.

M-1000BX™ can be applied to contaminated or hazardous substances in numerous ways. For soil applications, the product can be sprayed, or the soil can be reduced to a slurry and circulated with M-1000BX™. For vadose zone or groundwater applications, the bacteria can be applied into wells or infiltration galleries. Often the addition of specially-formulated nutrients can be used to augment the activity of the product in conditions where macro nutrients such as carbon, nitrogen, or phosphate are limited. A good monitoring program is critical to the success of any bioremediation project.
M-1000®BX is shipped in two sizes: in 5 gallon containers (45 lbs), and in 55-gallon containers (495 lbs), F.O.B. Round Rock, Texas.
