Reclamation through bioremediation
Contaminants were chemically reduced by a mixture of electron donor agents applied to the matrix
A microcosm test set up at Biosearch Ambiente’s laboratory allowed the determination of the feasibility of a bioremediation approach on a chlorinated solvent impacted groundwater.
Electron donors, as nutrients for the autochthonous microbes, were added to the contaminated water and was able to stimulate the pollutants degradation.
