Biopile technology applied at thermosolar plant
June 03rd 2013
Under the supervision of Litoclean, the research team of the Department of Microbiology of the University of Barcelona rperformed feasibility and treatability tests on the soil of a thermosolar plant affected by a thermal liquid spill.
Tests included a total microbiota recount and degradation of the thermal oil and its efficacy in the face of the environment’s different determining factors:
- Oxygen Availability
- Humidity %
- Soil mulch agents
Once the parameters optimising microbial activity at this particular site are determined, the Litoclean team will start the recovery task of the affected soil with the progressive implementation of static and dynamic biopiles.
