Beyond Environmental’s iSorb Miotechnology is a formulation of natural ingredients that transforms water into a controllable super-carrier, MioGel. This gel is said to feature trillions of hydrocarbon-consuming microbes that feed on contamination and convert it into environmentally safe byproducts like water and carbon dioxide.

The gel is designed in application-specific viscosities that range from watery to semi-solid. This enables control to the biological cleaning process even when applied to vertical surfaces. It is customizable for applications with the correct balance of microbes blended to remediate deposits of petroleum hydrocarbons such as fuels, lubricating oils and mineral oils. Further, specific blends can be formulated for volatiles and for aromatics.

Within each zone, the microbes receive supplies of water, food and air at levels superior to what is possible with conventional water-based biological treatments, according to the company. This equals sustainable biomass and enables the microbes to work together to accelerate and maintain levels of cleaning power. The gels can be used in applications such as removing hydrocarbons from drying bed walls, creosote from bridges, tracking ballast and soil, industrial maintenance; acting as a polish at the end of a cleanup, and going where it’s impractical or harmful to use water.
