Hydrocarbon contamination is a major environmental concern, owing to its large scale usage in transportation, industrial, agricultural and other sectors.

From plastics to oils, petroleum is incorporated within many commodities used on a daily basis. However, petroleum-based products produce a significant amount of hydrocarbon waste that has to be suitably dealt with.

Often never witnessed by consumers, such Hydrocarbons should not be dismissed, especially when it resides within the boundaries of any potential Construction dwelling.

Through accidental release or seepage, the likelihood of land contamination is high, so experts such as the Mick George Group should be sort to apply the appropriate Bioremediation techniques.


What is Hydrocarbon Waste?

Hydrocarbons are organic compounds, or molecules, that contain only carbon and hydrogen, produced through the refinement or derivation of fossil fuels

A variety of petroleum hydrocarbons such as crude oil, diesel, gasoline, heavy oil, kerosene etc. are used extensively as energy sources, despite their contaminations in soil and water have adverse effects. Common hydrocarbon waste products come from tires, rubbers, plastics, asphalts and diapers.

Due to increasing Government regulations around Hydrocarbon Waste, it is essential that you apply the appropriate disposal solutions when removing.
