Environmentally Friendly Solutions for Industrial Cleaning

Oil Rig Cleaning Solutions

Proper operation of oil rigs and fields requires continuous preventive maintenance to cap the effects that deposits can create. If left unchecked, deposits can corrode an oil rig to the point that it is no longer profitable to operate. Oil rig cleaning solutions, that are plant-based, can prevent this. Mixed with water, some of these solutions form nano-sized cleaning components called micelles. These particles hack into oil and grease, break it down, and then surround it in a colloidal suspension. In this state, oil molecules are easily rinsed and primed for a full on attack by naturally occurring bacteria within the oil and grease deposit who complete the process of biodegradation.

Oil and Fuel Spill Surface Washing Agents

Solutions that uniquely combine plant-, water-based and ultimately biodegradable ingredients can be used to effectively and rapidly treat oil and fuel spills. These solutions form colloidal micelle that is structurally designed to enthusiastically penetrate long-chain hydrocarbon bonds in oil and capture them in a colloidal suspension. In this state, oil particles are sufficiently broken down to biodegrade through consumption by their own bacteria (Source: http://www.ebgreensolutions.com/products). The whole process is completed within 28 days.

De-Odorizing Solutions

Most commercial odor solutions only mask odors, often with less than environmentally-friendly chemicals. Ideally to remove unpleasant lingering odors from a location, you would eliminate them at their source. Solutions that attack the source of odors, organic or inorganic, derived from food-grade ingredients, work by breaking down the source, not hiding it. In areas of high human and animal traffic, these safe, non-toxic solutions are a far better solution.

Cleaning Solutions for Temporary Tanks at Hydraulic Fracturing Operations

For these types of operations, non-ionic surfactants, held in a colloidal suspension, are available. Introduced into fracturing water, these agents actually reduce surface tension of the water. The result of this is that settling is improved, which in turn eliminates suspended solids in the brine. An added benefit is that this brine can often be reused, further reducing disposal and fresh water costs.
