Hydroloc Soil Amendment is a patent-pending, proprietary soil amendment product created to provide a beneficial and environmentally safe option for drill cuttings. It is created using a defined an monitored process implemented at the production site. The cuttings undergo a treatment process utilizing a proprietary stable compost mix that includes enhanced levels of specifically designed biological additive (bacteria and fungi) and natural ingredients. The treatment process results in dramatic decreases in hydrocarbons and other limiting constituents, such as heavy metals, organic and inorganic compounds.
GEEI’s focus on land reclamation services includes grass, riparian, wetland, broadcast and drill seeding as well as soil amendments. In the Rocky Mountain region, we focus on land reclamation for oil and gas sites, mining, federal and state highway projects, Department of Energy developments, home builders and municipalities, private sector clients, open space areas a s well as wetland mitigation efforts.
