What adsorbents can one use to remove polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons from water?
If you would consider your local nursery as "local" then most carry a microbial product called ARCHAEA. If not you can request they begin to carry it or have a FluxAqua representative review it and carry it for the current and their long list of pollution concerns.
Details: Bacteria and fungus are DNA microbes that have beneficial and specific functions in nature. The ARCHAEA is an RNA microbial Domain, Kingdom, etc. It has one basic yet fundamental function in nature. Reduce compounds into their elemental state. i.e. create the building blocks of all life everywhere. Septic tanks, waste treatment facilities, oil spills on the ocean and on land, collected garbage heading to a land fill, or even any pollution in lakes, rivers, reservoirs, costal areas, dead zones and many more. When flooding occurs hydrocarbon compounds are spread everywhere. Using the technology of BIOREMEDIATION most cleanups will take 24 hours. Getting life back to normal will take longer. But at least all pollution and toxic material will be removed to allow rescue workers to get in and assist without becoming victims themselves. I do have the UN list of hydrocarbon compounds that have been successfully eliminated using the ARCHAEA. This format does not have a file transfer function.
