Sustainable Bioremediation & Biotechnology Pioneers
Nanobite Global is an sustainable bioremediation and biotechnology specialist company whose technology has its origins in a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) spin-off company. Our patented technology encapsulates hydrocarbons in products which are based on naturally occurring substances and then breaks them down in an entirely environmentally friendly way. The end result is a system which dramatically accelerates the natural processes that break down hydrocarbons such as crude oil, petrol, diesel and kerosene into carbon dioxide and water.-
It leaves no trace of the original liquid hydrocarbon.
Conventional hydrocarbon remediation involves the utilisation of dispersants and absorbents which merely move the problem from one place to another with contaminates usually ending up in landfill sites. In the process, flora and fauna are often destroyed.
The range of Nanobite products is the future of Hydrocarbon remediation.
NANOBITE CRYSTAL TECHNOLOGY - Our products utilise environmentally safe crystal technology to bond with any spilled hydrocarbons (Oil, Fuels, Antifreeze etc.) and break the pollutant into carbon dioxide (inert gas) and water. This product uses naturally occurring microbes in the air to break down the pollutants trapped inside the crystals. In water, the crystals encapsulate the hydrocarbons and keep them on the surface thus protecting both the water table and the environment. The crystals are non-toxic, non-flammable, non-corrosive and 100% biodegradable. Fuel vapour is eradicated in minutes. The product is plant and animal friendly.
THE PROCESS OF NANOBITE ENCAPSULATION AND BIOREMEDIATION FOR OIL
All oil particles in water, including nano sized particles can be removed safely using our products.
When mixed into any oil polluted water, Nanobite crystals instantly surround and stabilize any oil particle in the water. This process is known as Encapsulation
Once the spill is encapsulated, the crystal matrix will immediately cross link and form large unbreakable flocs. This effectively removes the sheen and significantly reduces the spill area
Nanobite crystals feed oil eating indigenous bacteria that multiply exponentially to totally dominate the surrounding environment and in turn quickly biodegrade the oil to form environmentally safe carbon dioxide and water
Naturally occurring micro-organisms aerobically degrade hydrocarbons but at a very slow rate. This is why it takes hundreds to thousands of years for nature to remediate hydrocarbons. However, by providing nutrients containing carbon, phosphorus, and nitrogen, rapid growth of the microbial colonies can be effected. Nanobite achieves this at a molecular level, thereby massively accelerating the remediation of hydrocarbons down to periods from many years to a few minutes or a few weeks depending in the specific hydrocarbon.
Nanobite crystals adhere to the hydrocarbons, thus assuring their destruction even if the contamination is washed away. The oleophilic outer shell of the Nanobite crystals will adhere to the hydrocarbon and remain there despite rain, wind or tides. If you apply it on water, the product will disperse in the water column. It will attach to the hydrocarbon and create a micro-emulsion which is less dense than water, therefore it will go to the surface where more oxygen is available and the conditions for biodegradation are better.
The chosen agent has a balanced nutrient core. Years of research and quantitative field studies have established these parameters which have resulted in the patented technology.
Combined with the proper application technology, the product can be easily administered to achieve rapid results.
Nanobite Crystals are non-toxic. This is an "environmentally" sound technology. Unlike other products, Nanobite Crystals do not negatively impact the soil or water in any way.
The Nanobite crystal based range of products have been developed in both liquid and powder form which are applied depending upon the technical and environmental aspects of the spill.
