Contaminated Site Cleanup with Microbial Culture KB-1® A Canadian Success Story

The first KB-1® bioaugmentation injection in Canada was performed by Toxicological and Environmental Associates (TEA) Inc. of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. 

The first KB-1® bioaugmentation injection in Canada was performed by Toxicological and Environmental Associates (TEA) Inc. of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. A total of 65 liters of KB-1® was injected into 65 locations with each liter containing approximately 100 billion Dehalococcoides cells. Russ Copeland, TEA Project Manager, said “Injection of the KB-1® was simple and efficient. Results after 12 weeks indicated that bioremediation using KB-1® is effective. We have seen up to a 60% reduction in TCE concentrations and a corresponding increase in degradation products as anticipated. We are now finding Dehalococcoides populations in monitoring wells where they were initially not detected.”
