Biomicrogel®

Biomicrogel® are modified Polysaccharides and their derivatives in microgel forms representing colloidal solution of particles from 10 to 1000 nm in size featuring reversible solvability. They are able to transform from soluble to insoluble condition and back, depending on ambient conditions: pH, temperature, ionic strength, pressure et al.

The application of these agents was extremely limited due to their high cost, until recently. For example, they were used in medicine for targeted drug delivery in human body.

We have developed a new Biomicrogel® formulation based on common beetroot pulp and pomace, sunflower anthodium, chemical cellulose, starch et al, which enabled us to make them available for new industrial applications:

How it works

Biomicrogel® BMG-P2

Biomicrogel® BMG-P2 flocculants separate even the most resistant (steady) oil-in-water emulsions, effectively catching any mineral and vegetable oils, animal fats, and oil and petroleum products in water effectively, based on sweep- coagulation process. After separation of oil-water mixture both treated water and removed petroleum products can be returned to the process cycle and re-used. Biomicrogel® BMG-P2 flocculants are well compatible with almost all flocculants based on inorganic salts of polyvalent metals cleaning water from suspended particles.

Biomicrogel® BMG-P1 Sorbent activity is based on the same concept. Upon contact with any lubricants, oil and petroleum products in saline water, it immediately forms submicron polymer film at the oil – water interface, forming microcapsules with these pollutants contained inside. After that the microcapsules merge with each other turning the source petroleum product into viscous jelly which is much easier collected from water surface. In this form the petroleum products do not spread out over long distances (the oil spill area can be reduced by up to 50 times), do not stick to other surfaces (plants, birds, fishes, mammals, equipment, rocks etc.), don’t catch fire and maintain burning. Herewith, the petroleum products can be returned to process cycle after removal.

Biomicrogel® BMG-C2

Biomicrogel® BMG-C2 flocculants for treatment of water are high-molecular polymer compounds acting as molecular links designed for merging the smaller particles of pollutants in bigger and sustainable floccules (agglomerates), which easily settle/float upwards and are easily separated from water physically. Biomicrogel® BMG-C2 flocculants are well compatible with almost all flocculants based on inorganic salts of polyvalent metals. The function is based on the following property.

Biomicrogel® BMG-C4

Biomicrogel® BMG-C4 Product for Increasing the vegetable oils extraction recovery during their production is capable of separation of the oils from solid particles. The objective after crushing/extraction of fruits/seeds of vegetable oil crop during oil extraction process in aqueous phase and at stages of settlement and centrifuge treatment is to maximize separation of oil held between the particles of crushed crop. Biomicrogel® BMG-C4 Product can be used at each of those stages. Upon contact with oil drops in aqueous phase Biomicrogel® BMG-C4 Product stabilizes at oil-water interface forming submicron polymer films displacing the oil drops from the particles of crushed crop, after which they surface. 

Unlike the other Biomicrogel® modifications used as sorbent, flocculant or flocculating agent where strength of films (microcapsules) is critical and must be maintained during ling time, in this case it is critical to just ensure their short-term presence on the surface of the solid particles, ensuring oil separation from the solids and its surfacing on water. After the process is completed Biomicrogel® BMG-C4 Product is distributed in aqueous phase and over solids.


Biomicrogel® BMG-С6

Biomicrogel® BMG-С6 Product for cleaning the hard surfaces has a capacity to separate oils, greases and petroleum products from the solids (metal chips, scale). Upon contact with the solids contaminated with oils Biomicrogel® BMG-С6 Product forms extremely thin film between the solids and oil thereby separating the pollutant from the surface of the solids. 

Therefore, it makes cleaning of any solid particles from oils, greases and petroleum products in the washing solution of Biomicrogel® BMG-С6 Product effective. The cleaning process can be intensified by supplementary mixing or heating. The activity of the soil cleanup agent Biomicrogel® BMG-С3 is based on similar concept.


SPILLTEX®

After application (chemical bonding) of Biomicrogel®to the surface of filter medium made of natural or synthetic fibers it attains wettingand oleophobic properties. It passes water through easily and captures anytypes of oils, grease and petroleum products, making provision for inflowseparation of oil – water mixtures.

Therefore, we produce Spilltex® membranes used for fabrication of filters of any capacity and for containment of emergency oil spills in form of resistant barriers for shallow rivers and streams, for gathering petroleum products from water surface (scoop nets, oil skimmers), and also for protection of land and soils against pollution with petroleum products (protective meshes for coastal area, sumps, soil).


WONDER LAB®

We customized Biomicrogel® not only to solve industrial problems, but for production of safe home care products and cosmetics. Biomicrogel® operate in the following manner as components of detergents:
EMULSION STABILISER OF RHEOLOGY MODIFIER

act as colloidal stabilizers of emulsions, regulatingthe detergent compound thickening

WATER SOFTENER 

which decreases consumption of the detergent (e.g.,at dishwashing, floor mopping).

ANTI - RESORPTION AGENT

a greasy, oily or hard pollution particle ends upin detergent solution after separation. Biomicrogel® keepthe particle in solution and prevent it from redeposition on the cleanedsurface.

WATER SOFTENER 

capable of collecting metal ions from water, thus decreasingwater hardness and promoting effective and quick break-up of natural andvegetable surface active agents (SAA)

ENSURE DECREASE OF SURFACE TENSION AT INTERFACE 

That promotes increase of detergent solution capacity with respect to pollutants and with SAA concentration decreasing at the same time, allows to decrease the reheat temperature of detergent solution for their break-up, and provides good SAA rinsability from the cleaned surfaces


The combination of these functions integrated with detergents and cosmetic products helps to avoid maintaining excess SAA concentrations, significantly decrease or eliminate from composition such undesirable components as phosphates and phosphonates, synthetic anionic surface-active agents, agents containing active chlorine et al, and replace them with environmentally friendly biodegradable SAA in moderate concentrations. Eventually, that enables production of highly effective detergents and cosmetics in mid-range segment completely safe for environment and humans.
