JRW Bioremediation is an innovator in the development of environmentally friendly products. Our natural products are used to remediate contaminated soil and groundwater contaminated by chlorinated solvents, metals, nitrates, perchlorates and acid mine drainage.
Our mission is to provide "green" products to our customers to provide economical solutions to their business needs while at the same time providing significant benefit to the communities surrounding the locations where our products are deployed.
JRW’s products can be used for the cleanup of groundwater contaminated with:
Our approach to substrate dosing is based on site conditions. We provide substrates and nutrients for anaerobic bioremediation. The substrates provided include highly soluble materials such as WILCLEAR® sodium and potassium lactate, SoluLac® ethyl lactate, and Wilke Whey® whey powder and slowly soluble substrates including LactOil® soy micro-emulsion, and ChitoRem® chitin complex.
JRW is committed to the health and safety of our employees and our clients during the COVID-19 health crisis. Although our core business is considered essential, JRW has taken the step of encouraging all non-essential personnel to work remotely whenever possible. Our communications program seamlessly integrates telephone and web contact with each individual within the organization as well as our clients allowing staff to limit personal face to face contact while maintaining a high degree of personal attention. Each staff member has real-time access to project files and order databases allowing us to work remotely to maintain up to date information about your project and the status of your order. Our technical, logistics and administrative professionals also remain available to assist in your project planning and execution.
We will continue to work to maintain a commitment to superior service throughout the current health situation and hope that you, your staff, and their families remain healthy.
As the remediation business has changed JRW strives to stay in the forefront of technology development to improve substrate distribution and performance as well as prove out concepts for the remediation of emerging contaminants. We recognize that the keys to a successful bioremediation program are understanding the conditions limiting substrate distribution and optimizing microbial metabolism. If you can’t get proper distribution, you won’t be able to promote the right microbial activity to transform your contaminant.
Although this is a basic concept of enhancing bioremediation, it is still not widely ingrained in the consulting industry. A great example is the evolution of the concept of the use of emulsified vegetable oil (EVO). Early work concentrated on the slow dissolution properties of vegetable oil in order to provide a long lasting substrate. It was quickly recognized that neat vegetable oil dissolves slowly but it also has properties that can limit its distribution in the subsurface. The perceived solution was to emulsify neat oil to overcome some of those distribution issues. Initially field emulsions were used and then pr-emulsified products were introduced to improve product quality.
