The Fiton biocatalysis treatment process is completely scalable using naturally occurring microorganisms to break down hazardous substances into non toxic matter leaving no harmful side effects or collateral damage to the host environment.

Micro-Fiton’s proprietary bio-stimulant achieves desired results in considerably less time than competitive products and can be modulated for faster results in emergency situations.

On-site remediation reduces both the time and cost to achieve desired results.

The Fiton Process is well suited to the treatment of contaminants in sensitive eco-systems like the fresh and salt water environments found in the Florida Everglades or the wet lands of the Niger Delta.

Fiton’s efficacy and environmental safety were recognized by the government of the United Kingdom after their completion of extensive testing of Micro-Fiton. Based on their results, Fiton was awarded a bioremediation products license for oil spills treatment in the waters (sea, beach, rocky shores) of the United Kingdom, including Scotland. These licenses were first granted to Fiton in 1996 by the UK Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAFF), now the Marine Management Organisation (MMO). These licenses are renewed every 5 years.


To date, Micro-Fiton is the only product licensed for the biological treatment of oil contamination in open seas, inland water and coastal applications in the U.K. and Scotland.

Micro-Fiton has proven effective to depths of 20 meters where oxygen is scarce or non-existent. The product can treat contaminants that would normally be considered recalcitrant by other bioremedial processes.

Micro-Fiton is capable of treating a range of industrial wastes including organic and inorganic contaminants with applications to remediation of:

  • Fresh and salt water wetlands
  • Petroleum Spill
  • Tar Sands Tailing Ponds
  • Landfill Waste
  • Mining Effluent
  • Industrial Waste Streams
  • Soil and Groundwater Contamination

Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery, (MEOR)
The Fiton bio-catalysis products (microbes and nutrients containing terminal electron acceptors) are able to recover oil entrapped in heterogeneous media at great depths through a process called Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR). This feature has the capability of turning low or non-producing wells into an economic windfall for the petroleum industry.
