Hydrocarbon Mitigation Agent

Hydrocarbon Mitigation Agent

BioSolve Pinkwater is water based and does not react like a solvent. It emulsifies, encapsulates, and disperses. Once it is understood that these are the only three actions of BioSolve, adjustments can be made in the dilution and/or the application method to attain the desired result. Protocols are available for many applications.

BioSolve eliminates fire and explosion hazard when applied to a fuel spill. Sprayed onto the spill in a diluted solution, it encapsulates hydrocarbon molecules on contact, thus enabling responders to extinguish Class A and Class B (hydrocarbon) fires. As hydrocarbon molecules become encapsulated, the LEL (Lower Explosion Limit) will immediately decline and, with proper agitation, will register “zero”. Application of BioSolve also facilitates roadway cleanup, removing oil sheen that creates a driving hazard.


BioSolve has long been a standard component of emergency response procedures at fire departments and hazmat operations throughout the North America. Hundreds of fire departments and municipalities purchase BioSolve on a regular basis for use on their fleet vehicles

Pre-ignition: Reduces ignition risk by addressing the source ? encapsulating hydrocarbon molecules to reduce or even eliminate flammable vapors.

Post-ignition: Works in two ways: efficiently knocking down the flame and neutralizing the fuel source.

BioSolve is a concentrate and must be diluted prior to use. Always use BioSolve in accordance with Provincial/State, Federal or Local Approvals.

The following dilution rates have been found to be effective in most BioSolve applications. However, since site specific conditions vary, adjusting dilution rates slightly may be necessary for optimum efficiency.

Vapor Suppression (Soil) 3% – 6%
Tank Washout (Fuels, Light Oils) 3% (Heavy Oils) 6%
Soil, Rock, Sludge Washing 1% – 3%
Emergency Response (Spills) 6%
Fire 6%
Bioremediation (Fuels, Light Oils) 3% (Heavy Oils, Crudes) 6%
Food Grease Traps 5%
Available in:

BIO1L – BioSolve, 1 L Bottle
BIO1G – BioSolve, 1 Gallon Jug
BIO5G – BioSolve, 5 Gallon Pail
