Product Overview

Biological Oxygen Compound+Plus™, (BOC+™)
BioRenova developed a mixture of ingredients known as Biological Oxygen Compound+Plus™, (BOC+™), which is a two (2)-part, cost effective, food grade formulation with Calcium Peroxide that contains approximately 18% oxygen by weight (more than our competitors), and produces a slow and sustained release of molecular oxygen for up to one year depending on site conditions, when in contact with soil moisture or groundwater.

In addition to greater oxygen-releasing capabilities, unlike it's competitors, BOC+ also contains food grade macro and micronutrients, pH adjustment, a blend of biodegradable surfactants, carbon sources and other ingredients that promote and support beneficial microbial growth and enzymatic diversity.

The soil groundwater matrix normally does not contain a sufficient amount of nutrients to support optimum biotransformation.  It is for this reason; unlike our competitors, BOC+ also contains a diverse nutrient supplement to increase the biomass.  The degradation rate is proportional to the amount of biomass, more biomass, and faster degradation of contaminants.

Respirometer studies have conclusively proven that in order to have optimum degradation, it is also necessary to have the contaminants available for microbial activity, a blend of biodegradable surfactants, minerals, vitamins, pH buffering and other adjusted site conditions greatly increase the rapid mineralization of hydrocarbons.

Dehalogenation Compound+Plus (DHC+),
In the late 1980s Environmental Laboratories, Inc., started performing experiments with electron acceptors and donors, carbon energy sources, surfactants, yeast extracts, macro and micro nutrients, etc. for anaerobic bioremediation of chlorinated solvents. Efforts were directed at Tetrachloroethlyene and their degradation products.

Inland Consultants, Inc. and Inland Environmental, Inc. assisted in the experimentation and the securing of a United States and Japanese patent for a mixture of electron acceptors, donors, and proprietary ingredients for a product known as DHC+, which promotes reductive de-chlorination. DH+ is effective in degrading a wide range of halogenated compounds such as: carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, methylene chloride, certain chlorinated pesticides/herbicides, dyes perchlorate, nitrate, nitroaromatic explosives, dyes CFCs, some metals and radionuclides

The use of DHC+ for reductive dechlorination did not result in the formation of large amounts of vinyl chloride (VC) and at some sites, VC did not accumulate, but was simultaneously degraded as it formed. Thus, there was no accumulation of VC as is common in reductive dechlorination of chlorinated solvents with other methods of remediation. 

Chloroclean Inoculum,
Experiments conducted by Environmental Laboratories Inc. revealed that anaerobic bioremediation of halogenated compounds could be enhanced with the use of sludge from a sewage plant, operating an anaerobic digestion system. This sludge was pathogen free, contained a large consortium of microbes, and contained species of microbes known to facilitate complete dechlorination from DCE to ethene.

The sludge was used to bioaugment Dehalogenation Compound+Plus as an Inoculum for the remediation of a solvent dispensing and storage facility, Technical Products Company, Inc., located in Chicago, Illinois, which had been in operation since 1939.  The total extractable organic halides (EOX) were extremely high, PCE was at  5,226 ppm in some locations. The site was remediated in 18 months to residential promulgated standards and received a No Further Remediation letter from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.  Cultures were extracted from the site and further enriched to increase its ability to degrade halogenated compounds at those sites that are deficient in a large consortium of microbes containing  Dehalogenation species.
