Hydrocarbon Cleanup & Remediation Service
The safest and most cost-effective remediation service for the cleanup of hydrocarbons. This type of cleanup can be a daunting task due to the nature of these substances. Hydrocarbons are greasy, oily, viscous, and difficult to contain once spilled. OPG+ environmental services are the perfect solution to hydrocarbon cleanup.
OPG+ can reach most locations within hours. We are also available for scheduled maintenance to remove hydrocarbon buildups. We use an on-site (in situ) approach, which means there is no secondary cleanup required. No digging or hauling materials off-site. The OPG+ formula can clean up oil in fresh or saltwater and does not contain poisonous chemicals.
- Painted surfaces
- and more…
- Artificial turf
Our formula harnesses nature’s own process of using bacteria to break down matter. This method eliminates hydrocarbons fast, breaking them down at a molecular level. All hydrocarbons are turned into CO2 and water that’s safe for the environment.
Our technicians use a product in the field called OPG+1 that is a bio-stimulant. This formula contains a nontoxic blend of enzymes. When introduced to a spill they immediately bind to hydrocarbons. The product also contains ingredients that force the mixing together of OPG+1 with the spill. The contaminant’s ability to adhere to floors or other objects is gone.
Hydrocarbon Cleanup CostsThe cost of hydrocarbon spill cleanup depends on factors such as:
- The volume, type or amount of hydrocarbon spilled
- The types of surfaces the hydrocarbon spill affected
- How much time the hydrocarbon 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 response companies affect cleanup costs. Generally, on-site (in situ) cleanups cost less than off-site (ex-situ).
On-Site Cleanup Is CheaperOn-site remediation restores the site without removing dirt, sand or anything else from the area. This method costs less because it requires fewer resources like:
- Excavators and trucks
- Storage containers
On-Site Cleanup Is Safer
Off-site (ex situ) remediation moves contaminated materials to another location. Decontamination happens there, in a storage chamber. On-site (in situ) methods such as ours are safer because polluted media is not moved. This means workers do not spend as much time around the hazardous hydrocarbon.
OPG+ Is Simply Better
OPG+ helps to solve environmental cleanup problems for businesses. We provide lower cleanup costs than other options. Our Quick Response Team can dispatch to most locations within hours. Once on the scene, they perform a check of the contaminated area. They address safety and environmental concerns that are often caused by hydrocarbon spills.
When dealing with hard surfaces, our techs use rubber curbs. These barriers help steer liquid hydrocarbons away from storm drains or other waterways. Once they’re in position, our workers apply our formula to the area so that it can begin to work.
They mix the hydrocarbons with OPG+1 using a deck brush. Mixing them together speeds up the process. Our workers also use heated water and cleansing agents to complete the cleaning.
Once hydrocarbon cleanup is complete, our technicians may take soil or sand samples. This helps to determine if any toxins contaminated the earth below the spill. If they deduce that further treatment is needed, they form a plan for further treatment. Complete remediation of the area will happen after several return visits. OPG+ environmental services will ensure that all hydrocarbons are gone.
OPG+ can resolve hydrocarbon spills in bodies of water like lakes or ponds. Our team sprays OPG+1 on the surface. This changes the density of hydrocarbons to make them float and keeps them near the surface of the water. Our formula immediately breaks down the hydrocarbons, converting them to CO2 and water.
