Salt Brine / Produced Water Remediation
SoilTech allows a company to reduce its exposure to high remediation costs associated with dig and hauling. And since SoilTech works faster and more thorough than gypsum or phyto-remediation, the site can be restored much more quickly. The faster the site is cleaned up, the happier the landowner.
Crude spills or any hydrocarbon spills are just a part of doing business in this industry. SoilTech Hydrocarbon Remediation offers products and services that will quickly and completely remediate virtually any hydrocarbon spill. Since SoilTech-HCR is an in-situ process, sites can be treated in one day and cost a fraction of other methods like excavation.
Heavy Metal Remediation
Heavy Metal Remediation is a one-of-a-kind, patented solution designed to help you effectively prevent and remediate heavy metal leaching and pollution in the most environmentally friendly way.
SALT-BRINE or Salt-water spills unfortunately are inevitability of drilling and producing oil. They hurt the environment, your relationship with landowners, and your bottom-line. You are in the business of producing oil and when you have to move people and equipment to clean spills, that takes you away from what makes you money. Soil Technologies provides a solution that takes care of the remediation and landowner relationship so you can focus on what you do best, produce oil.
For landowners, SoilTech is the new solution to the age-old problem of salt-water spills. Producers have tried to clean them up but currently the solutions are either to expensive, dig-and-haul, or do not work in the long-term, tilling and gypsum.SoilTech is a liquid environmentally-friendly polymer product that will remediate the soil cheaply with long-term results.
Unlike other in-situ products and methods on the market, SOILTECH-HCR does not cover up or transfer hydrocarbons, it remediates them. It changes the chemical properties of the hydrocarbons and renders them harmless to the environment.
SOILTECH-HCR will typically lower hydrocarbon levels below regulatory standards in 30 days and can be applied any time of year. Compared to microbial products that can take 180+ days and only during the warmer times of year.
Since SOILTECH-HCR is an in-situ process, no costly dig-and-haul is needed. Typically only one quick application is needed, which virtually eliminates any disruption to normal site activities.
Crude spills or any hydrocarbon spills are just a part of doing business in this industry. When they do happen, the decision on how to clean them up must be made. When either the state or landowner puts pressure on your company to clean it up quickly the only route is to dig-and-haul. But the costs, even on a small spill, can be huge.
Even when in-situ remediation is an option, the extended time frame for products like microbes, can test the patients of those state regulators and landowners. Delays from weather, lengthy applications, and added applications can still drive the clean-up cost up.
SoilTech-HCR makes remediation decisions a lot easier. Our product and process allows for hydrocarbon spills of almost any kind and any where to be cleaned up quickly and cheaply.
SoilTech-HCR utilizes a patented and proprietary technology to breakdown hydrocarbons, making them harmless to environment. From a simple liquid application, hydrocarbon spills can be cleaned up in a fraction of the time, in any weather conditions, than microbial treatments. Since treating the soil in place, SoilTech-HCR is a fraction of the cost of excavation and allows normal site activity to resume in hours not days.

Benefits For Your Business
Hydrocarbon remediation is effective on both land and water, and is not subject to strict constraints like temperature, pH, moisture and light. It’s easy to spray apply and saves you valuable time, in addition to saving the environment.
Using this product can reduce health/environmental risks and legal liability.
Faster Than Microbes:
It remediates hydrocarbons in a fraction of the time needed by microbes. For instance, tests show a full 70% reduction in light crude oil within just 48 hours. And in field remediations, it reduced high weight hydrocarbons in soil in five days compared with the typical 12 to 18 months required when using microbial treatments.
In-Situ: A key benefit is that it allows you to conduct treatments in situ – at the site of the leak or spill. When you remediate hydrocarbons in situ, you can eliminate the costs of transporting toxic waste.
At Landfills: Using it at a landfill is also cost-effective. Because it remediates hydrocarbons significantly faster than microbes, it allows you to use less product and save volume and better utilize the space at your facility.
Safer Than Dispersants:
Hydrocarbon remediation works extremely well in water and is a better choice than traditional dispersants. Using dispersants to remediate oil spills is ineffective at eliminating spills and harmful for the environment. Dispersants contain dangerous chemicals that can actually make the problem worse.
Independent aquatic toxicity tests, for example, show our solution is less toxic than all other products currently in use, including dispersants and detergents.
Heavy Metal Remediation is effective on both land and water, producing fast results. In field remediations, has reduced leachable heavy metal concentrations to below regulatory limits quickly.
Many hazardous waste storage methods – underground storage tanks and landfill liner systems – leak chemicals, contaminating the groundwater. Heavy Metal Remediation actually remediates contaminated soil, sludge and water.
A key benefit of Heavy Metal Remediation is that it allows you to conduct treatments in situ – at the site of contamination. When you remediate toxic waste in situ, you don’t have to pay to transport it to and dispose of it in a hazardous waste landfill. Also, there is no need to bring in fill dirt to replace what was removed. Or take it to a landfill.
Heavy Metal Remediation is a one-of-a-kind, patented solution designed to help you effectively prevent and remediate heavy metal leaching and pollution in the most environmentally friendly way. It’s cost-effective, and it works without exposing people, animals or the environment to toxins, harsh chemicals, allergens or volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It is designed to work in situ, distinguishing it from other possible remediation options.
Use to Remediate:
- Multi-Valent Metals and More
- Industrial Plants
- Hazardous Waste Sites
- Leachate Remediation Sites
- Fly/Coal Ash Sites
- Contaminated Liquids and Soils
How It Works
This is the only heavy metal remediation product that utilizes patented and proprietary technology, allowing it to work in-situ or ex-situ and in a way no competitive product can.
Metal Ion Reaction
Heavy metal remediation involves the addition of a liquid, water-based product to the soil, sludge, or water. Contact between the product and the metals will allow the reaction to take place which converts the free metal ions into another compound. HMR remediates many multivalent metals – some are remediated faster than others. When contact is made and the new compound is formed, the mobility is eliminated. In the case of treatment of contaminated water with HMR, the reaction takes place and the new compound is precipitated from the water and becomes part of the soil layer. The new compound is highly stable and it will not be broken down by the natural environment.
Remediation, Not Transfer
Recognized for Safer Chemistry – This product is recognized as an EPA Design for the Environment (DfE) product. That means it passed a rigorous third party toxicology review and an EPA scientific review to be recognized for safer chemistry for people and the environment. Environmentally Friendly Remediation – This product/technology works without exposing people, animals or the environment to toxins and harsh chemicals.
