How Bioremediation Works

Bioremediation is the use of either naturally occurring or deliberately introduced microorganisms or other forms of life to consume or break down environmental pollutants, in order to clean up a polluted site. the process that these microbes go through to consume the contaminants is known as the Krebs Cycle.

The Krebs Cycle Simplified:

The natural pollutant (in this case oil, hydrocarbons, etc) gets introduced to the specifically designed microbes (OIL-OUT™). This starts a chemical reaction known as Aerobic Respiration in which the microbe uses oxygen to digest the food source and releases a combination of water, carbon dioxide and other organic materials.

In our case the microbes will remain stagnant until they are activated using water. Since the microbes are living, this will ensure your OIL-OUT™ concentrate will have a long shelf life.

The bioremediation process is completely natural and is an environmentally safe alternative for cleaning small or large scale messes.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Where can I purchase OIL-OUT™ in the US?

Unfortunately we have no distributors in the US at this time but we can ship your order out to you. Send your order to or call us Toll Free (855)897-6921

Where can I purchase OIL-OUT™?

OIL-OUT™ is currently being distributed by Green Line Hose & Fittings. Call your nearest Green Line to inquire about current stock. You will not find OIL-OUT™ on their website at this time.

I used OIL-OUT™ and it hasn’t taken the stain away completely. What can I do to take the stain away?

OIL-OUT™ is a very technical solution so some stains will require more in-depth instructions. If you’re having trouble with a particular stain and have already tried following the directions provided on our website then feel free to speak with one of our consultants. Call us Toll Free at (855)897-6921 or email us at

Are there any types of Oil that OIL-OUT™ does not work on?

OIL-OUT™ does not work as well on synthetic oil products. The microbes in OIL-OUT™ will eat the residual stain as long as the stain is from an organic hydrocarbon derivative.

How safe is OIL-OUT™ to use around the house if you have babies or pets?

OIL-OUT™ is non-toxic, non-corrosive and non-irritating. It is completely safe for users and the environment. Our products are all Eco Performance Certified.

What is the operational temperature range?

The beneficial bacteria strains included are able to sustain growth on a great variety of carbon sources from a low temperature of 4°C to a high of 45°C. Do not store in temperatures exceeding 32°C or below freezing.


OIL-OUT™ in the Oil and Gas Industry 10/6/17

OIL-OUT™ has many applications in the oil and gas industry. Its uses range from hands and clothing to the cleaning of heavy machinery and large-scale oil spills.

Companies choose to use OIL-OUT™ because of the many benefits it has over other cleaners:

  • Lower long-term cost
  • Safe to use
  • Easy disposal
  • Less maintenance
  • Long shelf life
  • Environmentally friendly

The biggest benefit being that it continues to work long after the application (up to 72 hours). Once the area has been fully cleaned a thin coat is applied to the area and the next cleaning will require a lot less work.

OIL-OUT™ can tackle many different types contamination too. It can remove stains caused by oil, tar, automotive fluid (transmission fluid, antifreeze, brake fluid, engine oils, lubricants, grease, radiator fluid, power steering fluid, gasoline, diesel) ethanol, rust proofing, asphalt sealer, inboard/outboard boat fuel, oil-wastewater, gas-oil combinations for lawnmowers, marine and small engines, cutting fluids and grease – just to name a few.

Note: please be sure to always use mixed with water (to activate the microbes) and always follow directions for specific use.




OIL-OUT™ is a stain and spill cleaner for many surface types. It is effective for a wide range of organic waste including hydrocarbons, fats, oils and grease. Our concentrated blend of bacterial spores and solvent-free biodegradable liquid is formulated to quickly break down oil or grease while protecting skin, clothing, and the environment.

OIL-OUT™ shortens clean-up times, increases contaminant bioavailability, and initiates biodegradation. In short, it saves you time and effort. For most stains, all you have to do is spray and wipe. Rinsing is never necessary! Microbes in OIL-OUT™ continue to work “eating” the stain for 72 to 96 hours after initial application.

Spray it into impossible-to-reach cracks, crevices, and pores of all surfaces.
