Terramend aerobic bioremediation reagent represents a superior biological treatment technology for solid materials impacted by recalcitrant organic compounds.
Since the first application in 1991, variations of the technology have been successfully used to treat >10,000,000 tons of soil, sediment and other solid materials. Terramend treats soils containing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), phthalates, and chlorophenols (including pentachlorophenol) at many sites throughout the world.
Terramend technology is uniquely advantageous because: i) it can often be applied without excavation, ii) implementation generates no odors or leachate, and iii) being typically applied at 1 to 3% (soil mass), it does not result in soil bulking.
An independent audit conducted by the U.S. EPA concluded that the technology represented a safe, effective and cost-efficient means of treating soils (US EPA/540/R-95/536 July, 1996).
- Hydrophilic Character
- Balanced Range Of Nutrients
- Improved Ecology
- Accelerated Treatment
Aerobic bioremediation is the addition of oxygen and nutrients to accelerate naturally occurring bioremediation through natural biological processes. The process helps facilitate the conversion of biodegradable compounds to CO2 and H2O.
