Our manufacturing facility

We are located in Austin, Texas and we manufacture and produce large quantities of highly concentrated microbial products in bulk amounts. Our products are packaged into a powder base, have a 5 years+ shelf life, and are activated by water. The Oppenheimer Formula is our flagship product that all of our microbial products are derived from.

We can offer our customer the benefit of ensuring them high quality products with excellent results. Our track record of over 25 years clearly shows that our products work very well. We have a diverse range of customers, they range from homeowners, to environmental companies, to the oil & gas industry.

The Oppenheimer Formula is listed on the United States EPA - NCP Product Schedule (Products Available for Use on Oil) Technical Bulletin Number B-36 Bioremediation Agent. The Oppenheimer Formula has been listed on this schedule since July 1991.This listing does NOT mean that EPA approves, recommends, licenses, certifies, or authorizes the use of The Oppenheimer Formula on an oil discharge. This listing means only that data have been submitted to EPA as required by subpart J of the National Contingency Plan, Section 300.915

restoring balance

to unbalanced environments

A large part of our success is because The Oppenheimer Formula blend contains a unique species of Archaea microbes. Archaea is an extremely versatile microbe that quickly breaks down even complex materials and minerals into basic nutrients and trace elements that plants can readily absorb. The microbes in our formulation tolerate many dfferent harsh environmental conditions and also are able to degrade a wide variety of hydrocarbons.

Microbes require 4 essential items in order to live and thrive. Oxygen - 1ppm, inorganic nutrients, water (can be fresh, salt, or brackish), and finally the microbes must come into contact with the item they are degrading.

excellent products

with proven results

Independent testing from Louisiana State University (LSU) prove that our products work extremely well. Louisiana State University tested eight commercial microbial products listed in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (US EPA) Office of Emergency Management Regulatory and Policy Division's National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP) Product Schedule.

In this study all products were tested for their effectiveness on the materials spilled from the Deep Horizon Oil Spill of 2010, namely alkanes and PAHS. Tests were conducted using weathered oil and gulf water collected from an area (in the northern Gulf of Mexico) impacted by the spill.

The Oppenheimer Formula was the MOST effective of all the products tested 99.9% of alkanes and 98.5% of PAH's were degraded and reduced.

our founder

Dr. Carl Oppenheimer

Dr. Oppenheimer is known around the world as one of the founding fathers of modern bioremediation technology. He devoted his life to the research and development of ecologically safe and sound methods of cleaning petroleum hydrocarbon pollution. He was instrumental in the state of Texas authorizing the first open water testing of a bioremediation product in US history at the site of the Mega Borg oil spill off the coast of Texas.
