KB-1® and KB-1® Plus bioaugmentation cultures have been used for over a decade to enhance bioremediation of chlorinated solvents. These cultures introduce beneficial microorganisms to contaminated sites where they are absent or at low concentrations. Bioaugmentation with KB-1® and KB-1® Plus is an effective solution to enhance remediation of a growing range of chlorinated solvents and other recalcitrant compounds including:
Successful bioaugmentation starts with a concentrated bioaugmentation culture that arrives on site with high viability. SiREM’s production and delivery methods combined with our comprehensive quality control program ensures:
Bioremediation is generally accepted as one of the least expensive remediation options (McDade et al., 2005) and bioaugmentation represents only a small fraction of project costs. Moreover, bioaugmentation is a one-time application that reduces cleanup time frames and associated site operation, maintenance and monitoring costs (Stroo et al., 2013). Bioaugmentation represents a modest investment that provides significant performance and financial dividends.
Worldwide Regulatory Acceptance
SiREM’s bioaugmentation cultures have been approved for use and applied in numerous jurisdictions including:

Many sites have an intrinsic pH below the optimum range for dechlorination (pH 6.8-7.8). At pH’s below 6.0, slow and incomplete dechlorination of chlorinated ethenes is often observed, leading to accumulation of cDCE and VC. For this reason SiREM has developed a KB-1® Plus culture acclimated to dechlorinate ethenes at lower pH.
