Biocide for ULSD, Heating Oil, Biodiesel and Gasoline
- Solvent based
- Water dispersible
- Broad spectrum
- Two types of chemistry
MicrobiKILL is a solvent-based preservative used to eliminate and/or prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi in finished fuels (e.g. ULSD, biodiesel, gasoline, bunker fuel oil). MicrobiKILL is also used to prevent the biodegradation of crude, refined and feedstock oils and fats (e.g. poultry, soybean, aromatic, paraffinic, naphthenic) during storage.
A proprietary and synergistic blend, MicrobiKILL is:
- Broad spectrum: kills bacteria and fungi
- Active in both phases of the system: partitions into both fuel and water
- Fast acting: 100% bacterial kill in just two hours
- Two types of chemistry confuse the bacteria to keep it from becoming resistant to treatment
Being solvent based, MicrobiKILL is fully combustible and will not form combustion residues or hazardous byproducts when used. MicrobiKILL is non-corrosive, non-emulsifying, and has long-term fuel stability.
MicrobiKILL imparts a minimum amount of sulfur and is approved for use in ultra low sulfur diesel applications.

MicrobiKILL® was tested in the laboratory to compare its effectiveness with three other leading biocides. The microorganisms used in the study were the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa and the fungus Cladosporium resinae, both of which are commonly found in fuel. The results of the study show that MicrobiKILL provides excellent results at the minimum recommended dose after one and four weeks (Figures 1 and 2). Brand X provided similar results but costs 2-3 times as much as MicrobiKILL. Brands Y and Z did not perform well, especially after 4 weeks.
