"Green" Surface acting agent
replacing toxic alternatives

RhamnoWash™ is a surface washing agent capable of removing oil
(crude, different grades of fuel oil, gasoline, and other petrochemicals)
from a variety of surfaces, including, but not limited to;
soil, shorelines, sandy beaches, mangroves, or sea grasses, etc.
RhamnoWash™ is more potent and effective then oil-based or
petroleum-based surfactants, while also being environmentally friendly.

Spill treatment and
management applications

RhamnoWash™ can be applied neat to certain heavy spills as well as sprayed using various product to water (fresh or salt) dilution ratios from (1:10 to 1:1000) using any number of spraying techniques to treat impacted areas.

Soil washing/Bioremediation

RhamnoWash™ can break apart hydrocarbons (petroleum) in the soil and leave non-toxic minerals behind.

EPA & Florida EPA Registered

RhamnoWash™ is a Surface Washing Agent on the National Oil
and Hazardous Substance Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP) Product Schedule
maintained by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The EPA maintains the NCP Schedule of products. This schedule lists
the various products that can be used during spill response to oil discharges.
RhamnoWash™ is registered with both the EPA and Florida EPA

Application Methods

With our state of the art drone technology, we can survey and apply RhamnoWash™
in any location quickly, effectively, and efficiently. Using data obtained from GPS-equipped
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles “UAVs” (Drones) to optimize rhamnolipid application management through:

  • -Real time high definition imagery
  • -Laser sensor technology
  • -Thermal imaging
  • -Exact analysis

Once we assess the situation, we bring in our MOROS Response, Mobile Onsite Rhamnolipid Operational Scrub.
Our application has five specific components:

  • Feed the oil and diesel collected from spills in water and soil to our bacteria.
  • The oil of “feedstock” is then fed to our pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria and produces a natural chemical called a “Rhamnolipid” biosurfactant.
  • The Rhamnolipid produced onsite is then used to remove the oil from the water line soil that is polluted. Rhamnolipid breaks apart oil hydrocarbons into non-toxic environmentally safe minerals. The science is basic - rhamnolipid separates oil from water and soil.
  • Sequestering of metals. As stated in number, rhamnolipid separates metals and we collected those metals to sell back to several industries.
  • Rhamnolipid can also separate coal ash for soil and can be discarded
Remote setup of Our mobile application uses solar energy for power. The carbon footprint is very minimal.

Helen Zhang, Professor at Memorial University, has successfully tested our
biosurfactants, through a joint-venture with Rhamnolipid, Inc., via an
adsorption experiment for investigating cobalt removal from soil.

"The high value range of surface tension of solutions (60-70 mN/m) shows that rhamnnolipid has a high tendency of adsorption to the soil surface."
