Environmental Engineering Services
With infrastructure and site development projects, we strive to be a leader in sustainable development through our Environmental Engineering Services. That is – progress without the long-term damage that often becomes neglected in land development and urban expansion.
- Waste Management
- Site Surveys
- Environmental Impact Assessments
Etam Engineering Services and its affiliates, Tetrahedron, Inc. are a biotechnology team employing the natural abilities of microbes and the advances in MicroBoost technology to consume or transform various chemicals.
Etam offers a full line of bio-remediation products and services including but not limited to following:
- Follow-up Testing
- Microbe inoculation
- Remediation construction
- Site assessments and evaluation
- Soil Amendments
- Soil Monitoring
- Soil sampling and testing
We treat fuel, oil and gas contaminations
The most common biodegradable waste are hydrocarbon sources such as fuel, oil, and grease (FOG) compounds, industrial waste solvents and coolants, and sludge’s waste. These compounds, which produce visual, operational or disposal problems, are also food sources for bacteria under the proper conditions. Our function is simply to assist the natural process.
When hydrocarbons come in contact with soil, water, or equipment; the goal can range from property restoration, to waste water treatment, or waste management. Applying the science of biotechnology properly through processes of nature is the key to a successful project.
Etam Engineering Services, located in Baltimore, Maryland work with other production company such as Tetrahedron which produces microbial products. . The three microbial blends listed are the most common blends used from the 116 different species in the inventory. Custom blends with specific properties can also be formulated.
A custom blend of 16 naturally occurring aerobic microbes selected for their hydrocarbon degrading capabilities. Although they are aerobic, most organisms of these species will go into anoxic respiration in the absence of oxygen, replacing it with nitrate nitrogen if necessary. Each species is tested after it is grown to ensure desired qualities have been maintained. They are then blended into the AMS-101™ inoculation for cultivation. AMS 101™ provides a multi-species cooperative colony for the degradation of petroleum hydrocarbons, oil & grease, gasoline, diesel, fuel oil, volatile organic compounds (benzene, toluene, xylene), PAH, phenols and alcohols.
MicroBoost™ is a concentrated and stabilized nutrient package that promotes and accelerates reproduction and growth of microorganisms, shortening the time required for hydrocarbon degradation. MicroBoost™ is a specially formulated product for bio-remediation of soils contaminated by petroleum hydrocarbons.
BioWash is a highly concentrated aqueous based cleaner and breaker for the removal of petroleum and organic based hydrocarbon accumulation on soils and surfaces. BioWash is superior for routine cleaning operations in commercial and industrial establishments.
BioWash can be used also on soil, asphalt, concrete, pilings, plant floors, offshore platforms, well heads, tank bottoms, metal parts, rocks and other surfaces. With regular use, BioWash removes oil and grease build-up and stains on surfaces. After initial applications, less BioWash™ is needed for maintenance treatment.
BioWash™ is a biodegradable product that can be used in conjunction with soil remediation products such as, MicroBoost™ and DeSalt Plus™ for the bioremediation of hydrocarbon contaminated soils.
