About NONTOX®

NONTOX® is a powerful bio-catalytic agent for the cleaning of soils and all hard surfaces of TPH (Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon) pollutants, releasing the TPH pollutants in a form more compatible for microbial remediation.

NONTOX® stimulates natural biological reactions within indigenous microbial ecosystems through enhancement of oxygen transfer supporting accelerated remediation rates of the TPH pollutants.

NONTOX® will treat virtually all TPH pollutants, including: crude oil, jet fuel, and diesel oil.

• Enhances remediation of TPH (Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons).
• Provides excellent surface cleaning and release of TPH components.
• Treats all types of petroleum hydrocarbon contamination.
• Helps in the precipitation of metals in wastewater discharges.
• Reduces time associated with soil and water remediation and cleanup.
• Provides immediate and ongoing VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) suppression.
• Reduces fire hazards, increasing flash points, and auto ignition threshold points, in gasoline or fuel oils.
• Does not require personal protective equipment.

NONTOX® is fully compatible all application equipment, including: hand or power sprayers, helicopter, airplane, or floating equipment.

NONTOX® requires no special personnel protective equipment.

Application rate/concentration

NONTOX® may be applied to TPH contaminated soil, shorelines and beaches: a dilution of NONTOX® at dilutions of 0.2% – 2%. Rates of application will vary with TPH concentrations, equipment specifications, and soil types.

For general dilution ratios, use a mixture of 4 gallons (15.2 liters) of Water containing 1 gallon (1 Liter) of NONTOX® to treat 1 cubic yard of contaminated soil.

NONTOX® should be allowed to penetrate for up to 30 minutes to maximize contact time. Type of power washing system will determine optimum dilution rate.

Cleaning Dilution
For Light Cleaning: Use 1 part NONTOX® per 256 parts water.
For Heavy Cleaning: Use 1 part NONTOX® per 50 parts water.

Conditions for Use
