The Good Microbes


AMCOR SORBE, absorbent is manufactured from the dry stalk of a unique plant, an annual agricultural crop. The plant absorbent products are intended for Toxic Spills,Oil Spills on land, water, or hard surfaces such as floors.  No chemicals or biological organisms are added during or after processing. However, there are Indigenous MICROBES in the plant that feed on HYDROCARBONS and harmful CARCINOGENS ONLY  that promote bio-remediation.

The following are important facts about MICROBES including the good microbes found in AMCOR SORBE.

Microbes are found everywhere in the world.

Some microbes are bad, because they can cause diseases, but other microbes are good and help people.  For example, yeast is a helpful microbe that humans use to make breads.  Other good microbes are used to make medicines for people and their animals.

AMCOR SORBE Microbes are very good because they clean-up polluted water and soil.  These combinations of good microbes can even help farmers grow bigger yield of  crops without fertilizers that harm the environment.

The more you learn about microbes, the more you’ll appreciate them:

  • Microbes are the oldest form of life on Earth.  They’ve been here for 3.8 billion years!
  • Microbes, by weight, represent 60 percent of the biomass of all life on Earth!
  • Microbes produce more than half of all the oxygen we breathe!
  • Microbes are the ultimate survivors: they are found just about everywhere on Earth!
  • A liter of coastal seawater can contain a billion or more microbes!
  • A single gram of soil can contain more than a billion microbes!
  • In the soil under your feet, there might be a million different types of microbes!

The right combinations of helpful microbes which are present in AMCOR SORBE can eat pollution until the pollution disappears. Then the microbes disappear, because there’s no more pollution for them to eat.

Amcorsorbe also meets Executive Order 13101 identifying our products as environmentally preferable for Government Purchasing.  Meets or exceeds U.S, Coast Guards requirements for usage of natural absorbent. These government agencies set up their own standards for products to meet. They DO NOT endorse any product or certify any individual brand. You either meet their requirements or you don’t and Amcorsorbe meets and even exceeds their standards.

However, with government’s increased concern over the environment, the laws protecting the environment are becoming stricter each year. Our products provide a NATURAL BIOREMEDIATION and ABSORBENT SOLUTIONS because of the Microbes in it in addition to the natural supplement Amcor Sorbe contains like Protein and Nitrogen.

Amcor Sorbe and its microbes works best with people who really understand microbes.  The people who know us best are environmental engineers and environmental site managers.  They analyze the pollution at contaminated sites, until they know exactly how much pollution and what types of pollution need to be eliminated.  They write reports explaining how they plan to clean-up the pollution.  Sometimes (but not often enough), the plans include using friendly microbes to reduce pollution.  The engineers give their plans to government agencies for review.
