COPES is a local, Hawaiian-owned business that provides rapid, effective bioaugmentaion services to eliminate misplaced grease and petroleum hydrocarbons, including light/heavy fuels, up to 200,000 ppm, in soil, groundwater, wastewater, concrete, and metal surfaces. The service is built around a patented, water-based, nontoxic liquid mixture called Nature's Way Technology. All work and applications are done and guaranteed by COPES.

Specific Information on Bioremediation Technologies and Services
COPES provides: (1) microbes, oxygen supplier, nutrients (K,N,P) and other enhancers to biodegrade crude and refined hydrocarbons, including long-chain aliphatics and aromatics, to below State action levels; (2) co-metabolism technology to biodegrade halogenated hydrocarbons such as PCBs, PCP, PCE, TCE, and vinyl chloride to below action levels; (3) primary substrate in co-metabolism, if insufficient TPH present; (4) all technical protocol and necessary project engineering; and (5) pertinent technical descriptions and summaries to regulators.
Previous and On-going Bioremediation Projects
Date Location Client Project Description Sep.-Dec. 1998 2114 S. King St. Dawson Environmental Receptor wells at this former service station showed ethylbenzene levels above DOH action levels for the past six years. Air sparging and limited SVE ineffective. NW Technology applied to wells, reducing BTEX levels to below action levels and to non-detect in some wells. Dec.-Jan. 1997 Pier 34 BHP Reduced benzene contamination in tank with 30,000 gal rinsewater containing solvent, from 44 ppm to 14 ppm in eight days. March 1997 Refinery-Kapolei BHP To bioremediate selected tank sites at the refinery and to clean concrete areas stained with heavy fuel oil. Contaminants included medium and heavy petroleum distillate, diesel, crude oil, and vacuum residual. Subsoil baselines ranged from 3,000 ppm to 35,000 ppm. This latter site was reduced to 18,000 ppm after 6 weeks. Nov.-Dec. 1996 Pearl Harbor US Navy To demonstrate the biodegradation effectiveness of NWT to reduce soil contaminated with 10 ppm Aroclor 1260 and 200 ppm weathered diesel. Aroclor 1260 was reduced by 50%, and diesel to non-detect in 13 days. 1996-1997 Various BFI Provide emergency cleanup response to hydraulic fluid spills by refuse trucks. Objective was to remove slippery liability as a result of these spills. COPES responded to at least six spills during this period. Nov. 1995 Waiau Power Plant HECO To demonstrate the NWT effectiveness on soil contaminated with 40,000 ppm of mineral oil dielectric fluid (transformer oil). NWT reduced this level to 92 ppm in 34 days. Project was conducted at Waiau.
