EKOGRID is an innovative environmental technology company developing and providing patented or patent pending EKOGRID™ in-situ solution for environmental remediation based on electro kinetic oxidation technology. The EKOGRID technology amplifies the remediation power of nature and has proven to be an ecological, sustainable and cost-efficient way for cleaning and remediating the environment already in 10 countries in 5 continents.
Now for the first time in the world EKOGRID electro kinetic oxidation technology is used for sea bottom remediation research in Töölö Bay in Helsinki, Finland.
EKOGRID system is being set up in Töölö Bay in August to verify its potential for breaking up harmful substances in the sediment, such as oil and PAH (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) compounds. The system produces a weak electric field in the area, which has been proven to accelerate the decay of harmful substances in soil.
Preliminary investigations carried out in an aquatic environment have also suggested that EKOGRID technology could have an inhibiting effect on the internal nutrient input which maintains eutrophication. The purpose of the research is to ascertain the effects that the method would have specifically on the internal circulation of phosphorus.
The benefits of the EKOGRID electro kinetic oxidation method for society and the environment are tremendous. It could save costs and avoid environmental damages by removing the need for extensive dredging in the upgrading of sea sediments. Additionally, disturbances to the citizens living in the vivid urban area of Töölö could be avoided.
