SoilFix – Independently judged by AngloGold and Potchefstroom University to be the best, most efficient and cost effective product available in South Africa, for the remediation of oil contaminated soil – in situ!
This process is an environmentally sound and environmentally beneficial process that solves the problem rather than relocating it, and usually costs around 25% of the cost of relocation to a dump site.
Our methodology and products were used in a test commissioned by AngloGold and conducted by the School of Environmental Sciences and Development of Potchefstroom University
In this trial BlueStream’s products were found to be the most effective and cost efficient of all the products available in South Africa.
The SoilFix Soil Remediation Process
Our process involves the mixing of a blend of Microbial Based products with contaminated soil. When the microbes come into contact with hydrocarbons and water is added, they are activated and begin the process of ‘devouring’ the oil. The oil is processed into carbon dioxide and water. As the microbes consume the oil, they multiply exponentially. The result is that, with our recommended dosing and procedure, the soil is left largely free of hydrocarbon contamination within a 90 day period.
This process is an environmentally sound and environmentally beneficial process that solves the problem rather than relocating it, and usually costs around 25% of the cost of relocation to a dump site. It also eliminates the ongoing responsibility that the ‘cradle to grave’ ethos imposes. The originally contaminated area is left free of hydrocarbons with a soil make up that is nutritionally enriched.
