Bioremediation & BioConversions

Deepwater drilling is deep-crust drilling and they are tapping the “abiotic oil” (It is red, not black).  It is the lubricant for the Tectonic plates  and draining it is triggering massive earthquakes, and even volcanic eruptions.

Deep-crust drilling, like fracking for “natural gas”, also triggers earthquakes and poisons our aquifers and groundwater. Double damage from deep-crust drilling.

Bioremediation and bioconversion have been consistently proven, over centuries, to be the best way to guarantee closure on contaminated wastewaters, groundwaters, lands, wetlands, and sandy rocky shorelines. ABCC's line of microbial and enzymic product blends, whose ingredients are provided by major brewers around the country, can be customized to the particular pollution, whether organic pathogens or chemicals. ABCC has teamed with numerous companies for the bioremediation of a variety of contaminants, especially hydrocarbon and petroleum toxins. ABCC wrote the White Papers for 8 companies to restore the Gulf of Mexico after the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

Deepwater drilling needs to end.

Oil and Water don't Mix

 

Plastics are a petroleum product and don't belong in either Land or  Water. This is being addressed by several companies and should be a major investment. Biodegradable Packaging is extremely important to implement for both water and land. Bio-plastics are now made from Kelp, avocado seeds, hemp, rice hulls, bamboo, beer waste and soy. Bamboo and hemp are also the base for “Green Metals” development – BioGraphene© – the strongest material ever devised, which may eventually eliminate mining! Meanwhile, microbes can also remediate mine tailings which contain arsenic and cyanide.  Deepwater drilling needs to end.

CLEAN WATER

ABCC's Waste Water Reclamation (WWR) Systems

 

Water capture and reclamation is key to solving the drought crises.

 

Each year, Southern California dumps trillions of gallons of 99% clean water into the Pacific Ocean. Only 10% is reclaimed. For ABCC, there is no such thing as "waste" water. Every drop is precious, and can be redirected, reclaimed, or remediated biologically and mechanically. 

With little or no modification to current facilities, 2 systems are combined for water purification in community and municipal applications: Ponding and Cavitation (UV systems can also be employed). ABCC can significantly increase water recovery and supply from desal through our wastewater treatment system which captures a return of  80% (minus evaporation) each time the water is reprocessed. This significantly reduces the cost per gallon.

Our products and processes using microbes for land-based Aquaculture (microbes and air diffusion) can also be efficiently applied to water reclamation and wastewater treatment. With the addition of Cavitation and/or UV units we are able to make desalination far less costly.  

 

Over 10,000,000 gallons (that's 10 million!) of 90% fresh water is released into the Pacific Ocean from Los Angeles every day.

Water capture and reclamation is key to solving the drought crises.

On the macro level, ABCC recommended to President Bush 41 in 1993, that a rainfall capture and pipeline distribution system from the water-logged East to the drought-stricken West could refill Lakes, Reservoirs, Rivers and even, Aquifers. Better to pipe water across America, than oil. They went back to oil, but this is something that can still be done today - relatively easily. Bill Maher has mentioned it on his show, Real Time, twice, in 2022.

Desalination plants need to have a sand filter at intake to prevent eggs and hatchlings from being sucked in, and they also need to process and package the salt that is extracted, and not put it back in the oceans or seas.

America's largest seawater desalination plant is located in Carlsbad, CA. The $1billion facility produces 50 million gallons of drinking water for the San Diego area each day, but at a cost double the price of other sources (AP Photo/Lenny Ignlezi, File)   Now, if we can implement ABCC's WWR system, we can increase volume and decrease costs.

Blue Tech for Home and Office.

Blue Gold.21_edited.jpg

Another important tech for drought prone areas is “Water-from-Air” technology We have researched the patent and the most reputable company to recommend. A home or office unit costs around $1500 and produces 2 to 20 gallons per day of pure water, depending upon the humidity. There are also units, demonstrated in Saudi Arabia, that produced 10,000 gallons per day. Every drop counts, and they can be solar-powered. This is far cheaper, and without the massive plastic wastes of bottled water – and enormous profits to water profiteers, like Nestle. This can be done in Flint, Michigan, and Newark, New Jersey, and across the country, while they replace their pipes. This would be far more cost-effective and convenient. It is an infrastructure process that especially impacts Health.

 

Health is Wealth.

There is now “Green Hydrogen” and “Green Batteries” from the electrolysis of seawater, not Lithium, which requires more mining.

Be aware that some “biodegradable” plastics take as long to biodegrade as regular plastics. Be sure to use “edible” plastics and/or “compostable” plastics. Ban Vinyl Chloride and resultant air pollution and “bomb trains”.

The Blue New Deal

ABCC believes that in order to combat climate change, we need to start with the synergistic relationship between land and sea. Our Oceans are the source of all life on this planet, and are indeed the key to sustaining it. ABCC considers Oceans, Rivers, Lakes and Land to be inextricably intertwined. ABCC thinks that a 'Blue New Deal' must be linked to a 'Green New Deal'. We call the combination, 'The Teal New Deal', and are prepared to deploy our environmental products and services in the shift towards sustainable policies. ABCC's full-circle, full-cycle, biomimicry systems use land and water synergies to our advantage, as we tackle water issues such as oil spill clean-ups, water reclamation and restoration, as well as organic agriculture and aquaculture.​

There is no such thing as “waste water”.

All life needs water. It is the world’s most precious resource, fueling everything from the food you eat, to the cotton you wear, to the energy you depend upon every day. Freshwater habitats—such as lakes, rivers, streams, wetlands and aquifers—house an incredible proportion of the world’s biodiversity: more than 10% of all known animals and about 50% of all known fish species. Yet despite the massive role water plays for people and Nature, it is a surprisingly finite resource. Less than 1% of the world's water is fresh and accessible. (Please also see our CLEAN FOOD page. About 80% of all water is used for food production.)

Climate change, population growth and changing consumption patterns are just a few of the myriad forces putting freshwater systems increasingly at risk. Freshwater species are declining at an alarming rate of 76%—much faster than terrestrial or marine species—and freshwater habitats are in worse condition than those of forests, grasslands or coastal systems.

"We live on a Blue Planet. Water is our lifeblood. We have been polluting and poisoning our lifeblood upon which we, and all life, depend. We have the responsibility to restore our waters and change our future.

The Miraculous Microbes

 

ABCC systems are biological and mechanical - methods that have been proven around the world to clean water and soil, for centuries. We begin with the beginning of the food chain – beneficial microbes. From water purification, topsoil restoration, to crop fertilization, they are used in all of our processes. Microbes can metabolize and remediate all chemical and organic toxins. The army that marches on its stomach, their enzymes break down the chemical bonds, allowing them to 'eat' the contaminating elements, and they continue to reproduce. When their food source is gone, they become dormant. They consume only dead matter and leave living matter to thrive.

We can customize 24 blends of microbes to neutralize and metabolize chemical and organic contaminations of all sorts. The microbes are brewed like beer and can be customized to the  specific contaminants, as with the sewage pond clean-up shown here.  Be aware that some “biodegradable” plastics take as long to biodegrade as regular plastics. Be sure to use “edible” plastics and/or “compostable” plastics.

 

The first thing microbes do is, kill the odor (that attracts pests to feed and breed). The microbes then begin to breakdown organic and chemical bonds and contaminants become inert, begin to rise, and are steadily consumed until they are gone and the water is clear.

 

The Bubble barriers are a great Low-tech solution to stopping 80% of ocean plastics that come from the rivers and canals that are open to the sea.

If you have a pond or lake on your property, add mosquito control with the

microbes, Bacillus Thurengensis Israeliensis, Mosquito fish, and/or Mosquito grass.

Japan has developed a process to recycle all types of plastics into pellets which can then be used in the construction of roads and buildings.

 

What you can do – Work to keep plastics out of your lives. Use cloth or paper bags for shopping. Get a table-top water filter (or even a Reverse Osmosis unit for the kitchen). Take your water with you in a travel cup. Do not buy water in plastic bottles. Sign petitions to protect our oceans. Just as bad as deepwater drilling is deep sea mining. Save water, recycle water in a fountain for birds and drought resistant landscapes. Join with others cited here, or local groups to plant mangroves, restore reefs with lab-grown corals, help clean rivers, creeks, and canals. Do what you can, do what you enjoy. All hands on deck!
