FMC launches new anaerobic bioremediation product

June 13, 2013 |

In Pennsylvania, FMC Corporation announced the launch of its new anaerobic bioremediation ELS product, an emulsified lecithin substrate designed to enhance in-situ anaerobic bioremediation of groundwater containing chlorinated contaminants. ELS product combines lecithin with a surfactant – both food grade – to support the growth of bacteria that degrade chlorinated organic contaminants in groundwater.

As a stable, concentrated emulsion, it is easily diluted with cold water at project sites and is suitable for use under a wide range of conditions. ELS can treat chlorinated solvents, chlorobenzenes, haloalkanes, pesticides and organic explosive compounds, giving it potential for use at dry cleaners, military bases, and manufacturing plants, among other sites.
