Provect-OX: It’s Greater Than One

Provect-OX® Self-Activating ISCO / Enhanced Bioremediation Reagent

In 2014, Provectus debuted Provect-OX® as the industry’s first self-activated, persulfate-based ISCO amendment specifically designed to support sustained bioremediation processes and therefore minimize or prevent rebound (US patent 9,126,245). Our most advanced formulations of buffered Provect-OX® utilize Terr-OR as a stabilizer for reactive ferrate (patents pending).

Forthcoming expirations of various patents covering conventional persulfate-based ISCO processes have recently stimulated industry creativity as they modify their older ISCO technologies. When persulfate-based ISCO alternatives are comparatively analyzed (Click here), Provect-OX® maintains leadership in terms of:

Safety: Provect-OX® has fewer health and safety concerns as compared to use of traditional activation methods such as heat, chelated metals, hydrogen peroxide or pH extremes using NaOH, Provect-OX® will not generate excessive heat / off-gases.

Ease of Use: Single component product – all in one bag – with integrated buffer, ferrate-stabilizer and activator results in simplified logistics and application.

  • No additional containers or multi-step mixing ratios required during field application
  • Fewer handling logistics and equipment compatibility issues
  • No secondary containment requirements

Increased Effectiveness: Promotes multiple oxidation reactions such as ferrate, superoxide and persulfate-based free radicals yielding more extensive in situ oxidation of a wider-range of organic contaminants. Also provides a unique microbiological component for multiple accelerated attenuation processes that act to minimize or prevent contaminant rebound after oxidation reactions have terminated.

Cost Efficiency: Significantly lower costs due to utilization of multiple oxidants with combined secondary treatment processes. Use of ferric oxide conserves oxidant when compared to organo-iron or chelated iron activation.

Improved Performance: Will not mobilize heavy metals or cause the generation of secondary impact issues such as elevated arsenic or chromium resulting from grossly elevated pH.

Longevity: Uniquely supports long-term, sustained (>2 years), secondary bioremediation processes to manage residuals and minimize or prevent contaminant rebound. Iron will remain in place and active for many years.


Safer, More Effective ISCO using Non-Extreme Persulfate Activation that Yields Sustained, Secondary Biotreatment.


Provect-OX® has been successfully used in North America, South America, Oceania and EAMA. Various examples of these projects, along with lessons learned, can be found on our website.

Made in the USA, Brazil, Italy and Taiwan
