Preservation and safeguarding of the environment


The oceans receive more than 7 million tons of hydrocarbons per year

Oil spills, chemical contamination, and plastic waste pose significant dangers to marine ecosystems.

Current methods to combat pollution include mechanical extraction, chemical dispersants, and propeller agitation, but none offer a comprehensive solution.

Bioremediation stands out as the only technology capable of restoring contaminated environments without causing further harm.


Bioremediation - Nature's solution

Biopulcher, with 30 years of experience, specializes in eco-sustainable technologies. We’ve earned approval from the Spanish Ministry of Development and the General Directorate of the Spanish Merchant Navy for our innovative approach to combating hydrocarbon pollution in the sea using biological means.

Our flagship product, the Biopulcher Petroleolitic Preparation, safely degrades hydrocarbon residues into harmless compounds.

We also offer biological activators and odor neutralizers for various deodorization treatments, all compliant with regulations and focused on environmental protection.

Oil-eating Bacteria

Oil has been part of life on earth for millions of years.
In nature, exist microorganisms that have the capacity to degrade hydrocarbons.

These bacteria are capable of metabolizing the hydrocarbon molecules. It decomposes and reduces them to harmless basic compounds for the ecosystem.
This is how nature protects itself from the natural leaks of hydrocarbons that emerge from different environments.

What is Bioremediation?

Bioremediation is the decontamination process that, using these microorganisms, accelerates that natural and irreversible process, in places where contamination is really high.

Among these microorganisms there is the pseudomona putida, one of the main bacteria of the preparation Biopulcher Petreololítico. This bacterium is able to completely degrade every kind of hydrocarbons and their derivatives including fuel, gasoline and diesel, among others.

The bacteria decompose the hydrocarbon transforming them basically in CO2, H2O and organic waste. Once its source of food (hydrocarbon) is finished, the area is decontaminated, the bacteria die and they are integrated back into the natural cycle as a protein food for other living organisms.

Bioremediation is able to decontaminate large surfaces in a very short time. In some cases, it can be used, end to end, as the only decontamination method and, in others, could complement traditional methods of absorption, collection and extraction.

Above all, Bioremediation represents the final and definitive solution in any hydrocarbon decontamination process.
After Bioremediation there can only exist more Bioremediation.

Biotechnological and eco-sustainable response

Natural bacteria to eliminate hydrocarbons



We provide Bioremediation treatments for on-site cleaning of environments contaminated by hydrocarbons. Our Petreololitic Biopulcher preparation swiftly degrades remaining hydrocarbons in water. Additionally, our services offer significant cost savings compared to traditional methods of extracting and transporting contaminated waste.



The Biopulcher Petroleolitic Preparation efficiently transforms hydrocarbons and their derivatives into benign compounds such as CO2, H2O, and organic waste, ensuring their complete and irreversible decomposition. This natural bioremediation process produces no discharges, waste, or atmospheric emissions, making it a sustainable and environmentally friendly solution



The Biopulcher Petroleolitic Preparation meets stringent biosecurity standards. Comprising non-genetically modified microorganisms sourced from natural environments, these saprophytic organisms neither engage in symbiosis nor parasitism. They lack photosynthetic capabilities and do not generate spores or forms of resistance that could prolong their presence in the environment.

The cycle of Bioremediation

REMEDIATION: Solve a problem

BIO-REMEDIATION: Use biological organism to solve a problem

How does it work



Samples of the area contaminated by hydrocarbons are collected throughout all the Bioremediation process.



The lyophilized bacteria are poured into containers filled with water, nutrients and hydrocarbons from the contaminated area. The fermentation process lasts between 4 and 6 hours. The bacteria are activated and they reproduced until reach the optimal moment, which is when they are applied.



Once prepared, the bacterial inoculum is applied on the contaminated surface and the bacteria start to work.



In a few hours (depending on the type of hydrocarbon) the Biopulcher preparation breaks down the hydrocarbon molecules.



The stain begins to disappear; the bacteria no longer find hydrocarbons “to feed”, they die and return to the circle of the environment in a natural way. The sea returns to the state prior to pollution. The ecosystem is safe.

Let's talk about Bioremediation

Bioremediation Benefits

Where is bioremediation applied?

Bioremediation could be applied to any accidental spillage of hydrocarbons and their derivatives in marine environments and port waters and on a multitude of surfaces:

  • Ground
  • Subsoil
  • Marine environments
  • Port waters
  • Sandy areas
  • Rocky areas
  • Any area or surface on which a minimum amount of free oxygen is available.

In addition

In order to neutralize odors it can be used in:

  • Organic sludge
  • Odors of sewage treatment plants, sewage, wastewater treatment plants, recycling plants
  • Bed of rivers, swamps and ponds
  • Sewers, leachates, urban organic waste, etc.
