Thanks, "cleanup kit" is right what I was looking for!

kit de dépollution
(bio) remediation kit
Explanation: If you want to be "techy" about it.
For contaminated soil and water
Bio-Remediation Kits that are easy to use and understand
Soil and water contaminated with Hydrocarbons (oil, grease, fuels, etc.), Phenols, Alcohols, Cyanides, Nitrites, Organic Amines, Methacrylates and Waxes can be remediated by increasing the concentration of naturally occurring bacteria.
The bacteria will enzymatically attach the chemical bonds of the contaminants and with oxygen present the chemical contaminants are broken down step by step, until the original molecules are reduced to the oxidized form of their base units.
Hydrocarbon + Oxygen > Carbon Dioxide + Water
The desired result is the growth and reproduction of bacteria with the concurrent consumption of the contaminants. By adding Biocare's naturally occurring bacteria to the soil or water, an initial population of approximately one million per gram of soil will increase up to one thousand fold. As this increase occurs the rate of digestion of the contaminant increases dramatically.
To achieve maximum results each kit contains nutrients that assist the bacteria's reproduction and growth. Maximum biodegradation rates will occur when the soil or water has a pH of 6.5 - 8.0 and the temperature is 8 - 35oC>>
