2. Concentration/Application Rate:
To treat beaches, coarse sand, rocks, rip rap, sea walls, cobble shorelines and rocky shores, oiled pilings and piers use one (1) part BIOREM-2000 OIL DIGESTER™ diluted with five (5) parts water. Use one (1) gallon per 1,500 square feet of contaminated area.
Treating Marine Vegetation/Wetlands:
Dilute one (1) part BIOREM-2000 OIL DIGESTER™ with five (5) parts water and apply with non-pressure, non-impact spraying equipment onto reeds, grasses, trees, and rocks in marsh areas and vegetated wetlands. Use one (1) gallon per 1,500 square feet of contaminated area.
For Treating Water:
Do no dilute BIOREM-2000 OIL DIGESTER™ and apply directly spraying onto the surface of oil.
BIOREM-2000 OIL DIGESTER™ may be applied with hand sprayers or portable pumps to spray the product directly onto oiled surfaces. Dose rates will vary with the type and amount of petroleum spilled, the extent of weathering, and other site-specific conditions, including temperature, porosity of surface, and residence time available to let the product contact the oil.
3. Conditions for Use: Effective at temperatures above 40°F.
