Rhamnolipid/Microbial Remediation refers to any method that uses a combination of rhamnolipids and microbes (microorganisms) to recycle organic materials and sequester inorganic ions. The Rhamnolipid Based Water Systems “RamH2O” is for use in in-situ and ex-situ environments, wastewater clean-up, oil spills, agriculture, industrial contaminate clean up, etc., to name a few. It is a biodegradable, organic solution for contaminated water and site remediation.

Membranes are the basis of most compact water systems. While they are sold with most systems they also have a limited service life. After 5 to 7 years membranes must be replaced. There are typically sold on a very cost competitive basis. RamH2O offers another option. Membranes incorporating rhamnolipid technology. RamH2O incorporates the use of rhamnolipids with membrane technology. One patent relies on the ability of rhamnolipids to suspend oils as part of a chemical injection system. Rhamnolipids incorporated into the membrane structure imparts unique biocide and rejection characteristics onto the membrane. Lastly, extended research is completely focused on coating membranes with rhamnolipids. This research indicated that rhamnolipids lower operating pressures, which reduces the cost and energy requirements for producing water. No company other than RamH2O understands how to use rhamnolipid technology with membranes for water treatment. Company Description – Rhamnolipids are a biotech product that reduces the surface tension between oil and water and also acts as a biocide. The difference between rhamnolipids and other chemical products is that rhamnolipids are biodegradable. Rhamnolipids can be used in place of other synthetic chemicals. RamH2O uses technology for use in water treatment, wastewater treatment, and oil recovery. Technology or feature – Rhamnolipids are a unique material that is naturally occurring. Rhamnolipids are a surfactant that increases the ability of water to dissolve oils. It also acts as a biocide and sequesters heavy metals. The major issue with rhamnolipid technology in the past is the cost. We have developed production technologies and bacterial strains which make rhamnolipids a cost effective water treatment alternative. No other supplier in the world can produce rhamnolipids in sufficient quality and quality at the required costs to make it practical. Synergy – Rhamnolipids are used in tandem with membrane technology, wastewater treatment, ozone and ultraviolet light. Ozone has a limited life and application functionality so rhamnolipids must be incorporated into service contracts to complement the technology.
