|BIOREM from BIOMEDY is based on the long standing Sulfate-Reducing-Bacteria Technology.
BIOREM refers to a sophisticated on-site biological remediation for the decontamination of polluted ground waters (both surface and underground waters). Such pollution, usually caused by disposal of wastes from operation of mines, metallurgical plants, chemical and oil industries, urban dumpsites, or by intensive use of mineral fertilizer in agriculture, calls for an immediate remedy since its dramatic impact on ecology and ultimately on the quality of life.
BIOREM has been proven to be effective in replacing little efficient chemico-physical processes (like pump-and-treat method) and is currently applicable when ground waters are polluted with sulfates, nitrates, surfactants, toxic metals (like Cu, Hg, As, Cr, Cd, V, Se, Mo, etc.), radio-nuclides (like U, Th, Cs, Sr, etc.) and organic compounds (like oil products, formaldehyde, etc.).
The implementation of BIOREM consists in the creation of on-site barriers, made of appropriate biomasses injected into the ground, able to drastically reduce the pollutant concentration. The end product of the remediation is represented by insoluble metallic compounds and carbonates while radio-nuclides are transposed to a stable insoluble phase and organic compounds are transformed into CO2 and H2O by an anaerobic decomposition.
BIOREM has already been applied and recognized as an excellent remedy in a number of heavy applications (like uranium mine, copper mine, uranium processing plant, etc.) and is ready to be used in many others (like nitrogenized waters of rivers and lakes, waste disposal and dumpsites, gold mines, coal processing plants, coal and oil power plants, over fertilized fields, etc.).
|BIOREM, the BIOMEDY's Sulfate-Reducing-Bacteria Technology (patents pending) provides a number of advantages compared to other mechanical, chemical, biological or mixed technologies.
