Altogen Labs Announces Patent Filing for Bioremediation Process and Oil Spill Cleanup Products
Date:10/26/2012

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Altogen Labs announced the filing of a patent for bioremediation microorganism isolation and selection methods (USPTO application 13/490,508). This environmental technology is based on isolation of naturally present microorganisms in heavily contaminated soil, which allows accelerating natural bioremediation processes. We don't have to wait hundreds of years for nature to degrade an oil spill or clean up land contaminated with toxic chemicals and carcinogens. Instead, by reintroducing natural bacteria to oil spill sites, Altogen Labs accomplish oil degradation process in just a few months. This bioaugmentation platform technology to remediate crude oil and chemical spills can be applied worldwide.

Both laboratory and field tests showed that Altogen Labs site-specific bacterial strains are highly effective for remediation of crude oil- and petroleum-saturated earth. The bacteria is grown in the lab to speed up the natural process and then re-introduced to the contaminated site. Multiple lab studies show that after consuming the oil and having no remaining food source, the bacteria die. No adverse effects of using the live bacteria have been observed, and the effectiveness and safety of the method are remarkable. Scientists at Altogen Labs used functional genomics to perform whole genome sequencing study to characterize these newly identified natural microorganisms and identify specific biosurfactant and quorum-sensing genes that allow the microorganisms to work together for efficient and effective crude oil spill bioremediation.

Altogen Labs also offers soil remediation services and development programs focused on other chemical contaminations besides crude oil, including remediation of soil with recalcitrant organic chemical spills including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, petroleum, pesticides, herbicides, perchlorate, carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, acetone, benzene, toluene, xylenes, perchloroethylene, chlorofluorocarbon, aliphatic chlorinated hydrocarbons, and other industrial and chemical manufacturing wastes and spills.

Altogen Labs announced that site-specific bioremediation products will be manufactured and sold through its exclusive distributor - Soil Bioremediation Inc (www.soil-bio-remediation.com) located in Austin, Texas.
