Microbiological Cleaning & Waste Treatment: SCF can design specific blends of microbes and nutrients for targeted applications in any area where bioremediation is possible.  Bioremediation is any process that uses microorganisms or their enzymes to return the environment altered by contaminants to its original condition.  Past projects include in-situ hydrocarbon bioremediation, FOG (Food, Oil Grease) bioremediation, targeted contaminant bioremediation (such as phenol), and wastewater treatment for odor abatement and sludge reduction.  SCF has available technology to blend specified bacteria and nutrients in a dry, water soluble granule for ease of application and storage. +learn more


Surfactants & Roofing Asphalts: Surface Chemists of Florida developed patented surfactants Surtech AS-109 and Surtech AS-309M for use with attapulgite clays in roofing asphalt cements and coatings.  We have been successfully marketing to the roofing asphalt industry for about 20 years. Our products are demonstrated to be cost effective in a broad range of compositions with various cutbacks, clays, and fillers. SCF is staffed and equipped to help our customers optimize the performance of their products and minimize their raw material costs. +learn more
