Bioremediation techniques for decontamination the subsoil
LITOCLEAN, along with UB and the company CLH, participated in the soil decontamination project at Mahón Port, whose details are published in the October 2014 issue of Proyectos Químicos journal
A joint work comprising the Department of Microbiology of the Faculty of Biology of the University of Barcelona, the Soil Investigation and Remediation LITOCLEAN department and the company CLH, S.A. carried out the soil recovery process of land of an old hydrocarbon storage centre in Cala Figuera, Menorca.
After conducting different land characterisation studies to find out its feasibility for the implementation of a bioremediation technology, selective soil excavation and its treatment through the aerobic biopile technique was chosen.
The project, which could come within the framework of a Green Remediation Project, given its minimal environmental impact, satisfactorily achieved the recovery of land, fulfilling the stipulated times and goals.
