What is Ultra-Archaea?

Ultra-Archaea is an archaea-based collection of over one hundred different species of microbes that are collected from rugged environments such as undersea vents or sites where there is volcanic activity. They are then cultivated with crude oil as their only food source, ultimately thriving on thousands of organic compounds, from benzene to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

The result is 100% natural, hardy, and fast-acting microbes that have an affinity for oil and other hydrocarbons, as well as organic waste. This specific collection of Ultra-Archaea microbes has not been genetically altered or engineered. They are naturally occurring microbes that have been on the EPA National Contingency List since its inception.

How Does Ultra-Achaea® Work?

  • Harnesses the power of naturally occurring archaea microbes

  • Cultivated with crude oil as their sole food source

  • Breaks down hydrocarbons swiftly into harmless byproducts

  • Supercharged process results in rapid remediation

  • Effective for oil spills on land and water, grease traps, septic tanks, and storm drains

  • After depleting their food source, Ultra-Archaea either die, return to natural levels, or are consumed by other organisms

Product Highlights

Practical Applications
Microbes are not Just for Oil Spills!

  • Waste Water Treatment Plant — Industrial (refineries, pulp mills, chemical
    plants, steel mills, textile plants)

  • Waste Water Treatment Plant — Municipal (collection systems, food processing)

  • Plumbing Maintenance — sinks, grease traps

  • Spill Control

  • Septic Tanks

  • Odor Control

  • Bioremediation — soil, water, storm water

  • Agriculture/Aquaculture — eliminating ammonia, storm water

  • Oily Water — oil/water separators, containment sumps, lagoons

  • RV and boat black water holding tanks

  • Bilges of boats

Ultra-Archaea Application Methods

1. Shakers - Two Sizes

  • Ultra-Archaea is housed in a bentonite clay powder that provides the slightly moist environment needed for them to live.

  • Two sizes of shakers available for application on smaller spills or contained areas.

  • Resealable/waterproof containers keep microbes dry/dormant until they are needed.

2. Water Soluble Packets - Small Size, BIG Results

  • 4 oz. water-soluble packets can be thrown into oil/water separators, catch basins, grease traps, and other areas to facilitate oil and grease removal.

  • No measuring, scooping, or spreading. Simply place the entire packet into the area that needs to be cleaned. The water-soluble packet will dissolve and allow the Ultra-Archaea to spread throughout the area.

3. Bulk Bags - For Large Spills

  • Bulk bags (25 lbs.) are available for large spills, open water applications, or frequent use areas.

  • Keep on hand for refilling Shakers or other smaller containers or for large, unexpected spills.

4. Tablets - 24 Tablets in each Tube

  • High concentration of Archaea (20 billion per gram)

  • Easy to break up and flush or drain – Simple to use

  • 12-pack of tubes, 24 tablets per tube

5. Booms - Dimensions: 6″ x 4″ x 1″

  • Specially-treated polyethylene (LLDPE) foam used in Ultra-Archaea Booms allows it to float on the water’s surface while also absorbing oil.

  • Microbe tablets (6) are inserted into slits in the foam sleeves — extended water contact causes the tablets to slowly dissolve, releasing the microbes into the water.

  • Booms can be dropped in, or tied off in catch basins (lanyards included), oil/ water separators or other areas where oily water can collect.

  • Sold in 6-packs.

Ultra-Archaea microbes are microorganisms that have been collected from natural water and soil sources around the world. They are selected for their particular affinity for consuming hydrocarbon-based pollutants and organic material and are cultivated in a way that maximized the speed at which they consume these pollutants.
