Another great in-situ case is bioremediation of the railway section of 5.5 miles. This case demonstrates the ability of BioCure’s oil-oxidizing bacterial cultures isolated from the contaminated site to bioremediate any kind of ground polluted by any kind of petroleum hydrocarbons, even very old diesel spills from “Soviet” times (historical pollution).
Ground: Lowland with wetlands, grassy areas, gravel, subsoil
Contaminant: Diesel, extremely aged
TPH Levels: From 4500 ppm to 34,000 ppm
Method: In-Situ, solution sprinkled from the train.
8 MONTHS LATER
After several treatments, we observed a significant decrease in TPH levels, 80% on average.
Utilizing BioCure’s hassle-free approach, all remediation activities were performed using customers’ infrastructure and personnel. Overall remediation costs were decreased by 70% on average.
