5 What is Bioremediation? Degradation of organic matter using microorganisms (bacteria) We like to call it “Nature's way of cleaning up”

6 How Bioremediation Works Converted into H 2 O and CO 2 Petroleum Contaminants Enter Solution Emulsified & Eaten by Microbes

7 How Bioremediation Works

8 2 Elements to Bioremediating Parts Washers  Non-pathogenic "Ozzy" microbes –Eat away at toughest contaminants –Leave no hazardous by-products  “OzzyJuice” aqueous-based cleaning/ degreasing solution  Proven to clean as well as and as quickly as solvents  Without dangers of solvent or expense/ hassle of hauling A Clean Process

9 Are Oil-Eating Microbes Safe?  Only tiny fraction of all bacteria on earth harmful  Average human adult – harbors 3 lbs of bacteria!  No genetic engineering – Ozzy Microbes naturally occurring  Chemfree only use American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) Class I organisms

10 Are Parts Washer Microbes Safe?  Should use American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) Class I organisms –Have “no recognized hazard under normal conditions” –Pose minimal risk to animals/humans  National Safety Foundation (NSF) –Certifies microbial strains used in ChemFree Bioremediating SmartWashers as nonpathogenic & safe for use in food handling facilities SmartWasher at Ft Gordon

11 Temperature & Microbes  Hydrocarbon degrading microbe species reproduce most actively at 105 O F – 115 O F (they like it warm)  Too much temp (over 125 O F) can kill  Cold does not kill – chilling/freezing slows metabolism

12 Lakehurst Pollution Prevention Equipment Program – Evaluation Results  Compared Safety Clean (solvent- based) with ChemFree SmartWasher (bioremediating)  Results – SmartWasher –Reduces waste-stream nearly 100% saving $1,800 in disposal costs –Solution can be used indefinitely with only occasional replenishment – Safe to use, does not require personal protective equipment servlet/DocServlet?wDID=87

13 Benefits of Bioremediating Parts Washers No flash point, non-flammable Extremely Low VOCs Eliminates hazardous waste generation No liabilities from employee exposure to solvent No EPA or OSHA paperwork Cleans as good or better than solvents Safe, non-hazardous, non-toxic No time-consuming regulatory reporting Lowers costs No hauling contracts

14 ChemFree Bioremediating SmartWashers  Designed specifically for bioremediation  Blow-molded high density polyethylene  Max Load: 550 lbs  Self-cleaning: recycles all system fluid  Holds gallons  Portable, field deployable  Available via NSN or GSA Contract

15 Anatomy of a SmartWasher

16 Magido Stainless Steel Cabinet Washers  Designed for durability –All stainless construction –Most resistant to rust & corrosion in industry  More flexible –Handles any water based fluid –Bioremediation option –Many other options  On GSA Contract

17 ChemFree SmartWasher at NAEC Lakehurst  A safe process using naturally occurring microbes to degrade hazardous substances  Successfully utilized at Army, Coast Guard, Air Force, Navy, USMC, etc Conclusions about Bioremediation SmartWasher at NADEP North Island  Advantages over conventional solvent washers –Safer, non-hazardous, non- flammable –Proven cleaning performance –No VOC’s –Eliminates hazardous waste disposal/removal –Reduces maintenance costs –No service contracts –Eliminates liability issues –Keeps you out of hot water with HazMat/Environmental/Safety
