Hazmat & Emergency Spill Clean Up
BioSolve® Pinkwater eliminates fire and explosion hazard when sprayed directly onto a fuel spill.
The most important challenge for first responders to non-ignited, Class B spills is to reduce the risk of fire and explosion that result from the accidental release of volatile hydrocarbons, such as gasoline.
BioSolve® Pinkwater eliminates fire and explosion hazard when sprayed directly onto a fuel spill. Aggressive agitation with a course stream of Pinkwater solution encapsulates the fuel, reducing volatilization and causing LEL readings to immediately decline, possibly registering “0.” Application of Pinkwater also facilitates roadway cleanup and eliminates hazardous oil sheen.
"BioSolve® Pinkwater clearly outperformed everything else we have tried. I’m a real believer in the product."
Specialized Maintenance Services, Carylon Corporation
"We, and the customer were extremely pleased with BioSolve’s performance in quickly and permanently removing the oil and odor. We have found an excellent product in BioSolve® and intend to continue stocking and using it."
Poughkeepsie, New York
"After application [of BioSolve] odors were reduced to non-existent and no further complaints were made. Re-application of BioSolve® was also used when soil was moved or turned."

"[Using BioSolve] allowed us to perform a job [tank cleaning] in a way that was environmentally safe as well as ensuring the safety of our workers. We were also able to take credit for waste minimization efforts as the job created no waste."
Bechtel Savannah River, Inc.
Aiken, South Carolina
"You guys have a unique product. Every MGP job has odor issues. It would be foolish not to
include BioSolve when submitting a bid for that work."
"I used it and the results were miraculous. The readings in ambient air went from 150 PPM to 5
PPM in less than five minutes. I was astounded."
John A. Witoshynsky, Inc
"We will use Pinkwater to clean equipment contaminated with creosote and NAPL. Simple Green is not doing the job, so we will switch to Pinkwater."
"When I heard about BioSolve I was really skeptical, but I tried it. And it worked better than they said it would. I now use BioSolve Pinkwater for small tank cleaning, spill clean-up and vapor suppression. Great product."

The BioSolve® Advantage
- An easy-to-use substitute for foam systems for fuel spill clean up
- With agitation, encapsulates fuels and other hydrocarbons to dramatically reduce vapors
- Solubilizes hydrocarbons so they can be recovered as an aqueous solution during fuel spill clean-up
- Used by fire departments and emergency response teams across the US and in foreign countries
- Water-based, biodegradable and non-corrosive oil spill cleanup products
- Uses standard fire department equipment (educator, pressure washer, etc)
Use a 12% solution in a water extinguisher or backpack-type sprayer; cover the spill working in a circular motion from the outside; then, agitate thoroughly with a coarse stream of water
Educt a 6% solution of BioSolve® Pinkwater through a fire hose working around the spill from the outside to the middle.
Closed Sewer and Storm Drain Spills
Aggressively flood spill with Pinkwater solution using a fire hose, or apply full strength followed immediately by plenty of water to thoroughly mix the fuel, Pinkwater and water.
It is always preferable to recover contaminated effluent from a spill site to be treated and disposed of at a qualified wastewater treatment facility. However, if the spill occurs on soil or effluent from a roadway clean-up is washed into a nearby culvert, it may be possible to treat the residual effluent using aerobic bioremediation if permitted by local, state and federal regulation. For more information about treating effluent using bioremediation, please contact The BioSolve® Company.
If storing Pinkwater solution in standard water extinguishers, call The BioSolve® Company for extinguisher labels
BioSolve® will not make fuel spills non-flammable until thoroughly agitated with water!
