Our technology has affirmed that applications controlling soil or groundwater movement can be achieved more effectively than with traditional electrokinetics.
Our projects in Europe, South America, the United States and China have already shown that the EKOGRID™ system is highly effective at reducing the content of aliphatic hydrocarbons and crude oil, and also aromatic compounds such as PAH, BTEX, and chlorinated hydrocarbons (chlorophenols, PCE and TCE).
The effect is not limited to the compounds named above – the method will be effective at degrading a variety of other organic materials.
The EKOGRID in-situ soil remediation project at a former oil above-the-ground storage tank (AST) site in Finland is a successful evidence of a cost-efficient and environment-friendly way of cleaning up abandoned storage tank sites. After completion of the EKOGRID in-situ remediation, the need for excavation, dump and replacement soil was reduced by 90%, from a total of 15,000 m3 of polluted soil to 1,500 m3. The reduction corresponds to a potential cost saving of EUR 1 million, when compared to a traditional “dig-and-dump” remediation!
