Aviation Fuel Cleanup & Remediation Service
The safest and most cost-effective remediation service for aviation fuel spills. OPG+ provides top-notch aviation fuel cleanup services. We keep mother nature in mind in our work. Our environmental cleanup method uses a non-toxic formula. It breaks down chemicals at a molecular level. Our services are a pure, natural way to remove contaminants.
Our approach stimulates the population of bacteria that are present in the environment. The microbes “eat” pollutants, and leave behind CO2 and water. Our Quick Response Technicians perform on-site (in situ) cleanups. This means that materials are not moved from the affected area. The OPG+ formula can remove aviation fuel from fresh or salt waterways.

- Artificial turf
Aviation fuel cleanup must happen quickly when accidental spills occur. The fumes from these spills pose a threat of fire. It’s best to call OPG+ Quick Response Team right away to lower the risk. Our technicians arrive within an hour to most locations. They can prevent the spill from catching fire or sinking further into the ground.
Jet Fuel (ATF), Avgas, Jet A, Jet A-1, jet B, JP-5 and JB-8 are all detoxified and remediated to harmless water and CO2 by OPG+. It cleans up jet fuel without having to transport materials to another area. They are cleaned in place (in situ) at the contamination site. Dirt, sand, or other substances don’t need to be dug up or moved for treatment.
Aviation Fuel Cleanup CostsThe cost of aviation fuel spill cleanup depends on factors such as:
- The volume or amount of aviation fuel spilled
- The types of surfaces the aviation fuel spill affected
- How much time the fuel has sunk into the ground or surfaces
- Other considerations that are unique to the area or location
- On-site or Off-site cleanup of the affected area
The methods used by different aviation fuel spill response companies affect cleanup costs. Generally, cleanup methods that move materials off-site cost more than on-site methods.
On-Site Cleanup Is Less ExpensiveOn-site aviation fuel cleanup strategies can restore spill sites. without removing dirt, sand or other mediums. The on-site method costs less because it requires fewer resources like:
- Digging and hauling machines
- Storage containers
On-Site Cleanup Is Safer
Ex situ remediation means materials contaminated with aviation fuel are dug up. They are then moved to another site before removal of toxins. In situ methods are safer because toxin-soaked materials are not handled. Thus, workers don’t spend as much time in contact with unsafe aviation fuel.
OPG+ Is Simply Better
OPG+ solves environmental cleanup problems for airports and airplane storage facilities. Our Quick Response Team can dispatch to most locations within hours. At the scene of a aviation fuel spill, our technicians perform a complete evaluation of the area. The first things they look for are safety and environmental concerns.
Our formula stimulates the bacteria that are present in the environment. It makes them consume chemicals. Our special mix of plant enzymes helps the bacteria use hazardous waste as food. They break down the molecules of the jet fuel, so the helpful microbes can digest them. A blend of nutrients in our formula encourages helpful bacteria to thrive.
Upon arrival at a spill, our employees immediately assess the spill perimeter. They address any environmental or safety issues. On packed soil, clay, or other hard surfaces, booms are set up to contain fuel and keep it out of waterways. Once these are in position, our workers spray our OPG+ formula on all affected areas.
Flammable fumes are immediately diminished. OPG+1 changes the molecular structure of fuel within minutes so that it is no longer flammable. To make sure our OPG+ formula mixes with the spilled aviation fuel, our techs use deck brushes or other tools. This speeds up the process of remediation. Next, we use cleansers to completely remove fuel residue.
Following the jet fuel spill cleanup, our QRT technicians take samples from the area. They study them to determine if there are any toxins remaining in the ground. If they find that fuel traces remain, they devise a plan to return to treat the area until they are gone.
